Orange, good signals in quite a few places, and on PAYG, some amazing rewards!

I've recently switched to O2 PayG recently, and I'm really happy with it. They have a rewards system that gives you free minutes/texts every time you top up. I'm on the texts one, so I can top up £10 a month and get 300 free texts (500 if I top up £15 a month, unlimited if I top up £30), then spend the £10 on just calls. But you can also have one that gives you loads of minutes to O2 phones, and another that gives you less minutes to all phones. See here for more info.

I'm on Orange. They had a special deal out: For £15 a month you get unlimited texts and a hundred minutes. That works well for me because I text more than I phone. Plus I get good coverage in my house which for a lot of other networks seems to be a blind spot.

3 because they do add-ons when you can use 1/2 or 3/4 of the top up money for texts or phone calls and the rest can be kept as normal credit. I <3 it

Basically, they're all crap. I was always rather fond of T-Mobile because they were good value for money and had good customer service, but recently they've started outsourcing it to India and hiked their prices (generally in a fairly obnoxious and naive manner).

Three have atorcious CS, but are the best value for money.

See what has the best deal for you. There's no one answer, really.

o2. They're the best for coverage for me.
I'm on T Mobile as well, because most of my friends are as well.

I've been on 3, and it was appalling, constantly losing signal for no reason. The phone kept cutting out, texts wouldn't get through. No good.

Orange was ok, I did get a few good things from there, but nothing major, and no one was on there.

I was on Virgin, but they didn't appeal to me that much. First network though.

Virgin!
All of my family use that network, and have been using them for years. We've never had any problems

Vodafone have the best coverage.
Vodafone are poor at offering deals, unless you've spent some money with them, and find something better to compare their offer with.

O2 - been with them and have had the same number for over 7 years! Plus my dad is a computer analyst for O2, so I get 1000 free minutes and 1000 free texts for £10 a month, and unlimited 18meg broadband for £5 a month. So I can't leave :p:

Can't imagine how much money I've saved using Orange Wednesdays.
