i left voda to go to o2 as i thought after 5 years with them i could not get anything out of them free or discounts, and there customer service was non existent so be careful carlos speak to both networks and go from there
Thanks mate, that's all I wanted to know.
Off to check out Vodafone.....
@brev look mate who cares what the 3g coverage is like at the moment when we get 800 mins 2000 texts for £30 a month and what do you want video minutes for at the moment when not enough people will have 3g yet
anyone who is wanting 6680 on o2 better get ready for a long wait has the handset came in stock yesterday and has now gone back out of stock i know i work for them, and trust me dont go on o2 they are s***e the 3g covarage is crap i was told that i would have 3g in may, then june now i am being told it will be september trust me go with vodaphone there 3g covarage is fantastic and the tariff i got was 500mins 100 texts 50 video calling mins and unlimited downloads per month for £40 and the cost me £30.00
with regards to 3 network i wouldnt take a contract with them if they gave me free line rental with 1000 minutes and 5000 texts as i wouldnt be able to use them the network coverage is virtually non existant if it rains u cannot even send a text in manchester and 3pay is even worse u lose any credit unused after a certain period of time what is this 1990`s lol
to be honest ive been told 3 are not very good on reception and they were using the o2 signal untill they got there own, not sure if they are still doing it but i think o2 is much better then 3, im sure paul would agree
@carlos o2 are working on 3g coverage as we speak and as they have the best coverage for the service they already provide it will be just as good if not better as time goes on
Great discussions in here, but still no clue as to the cobverage I need on 3G with O2.
I'd be happy to port to them if I can get good 3G coverage (Folkestone, Kent) for browsing the net / connection to my office network etc., rather than just able to browse 3G content provided by the Network (i.e. "3").
Hope I've explained it better this time.
ok will do cheers Paul
@ claire email me i will advise you tonight im not putting info on here for everyone
can you still upgrade after 12 months on that deal cause its says use your old phone
@carlos get rid of orange phone o2 and get 6680 on a new tarrif with o2 but ask them if they can match what orange offered u first then when they beat orange which they will you will have what you want with the phone you want lol
@ claire sorry lol im with 02 online as well they are great nobody can touch these tarrifs and if u fone customer services next month get ur tarrif changed to sim only tarrif u get double mins and texts for same price
Im with o2 online not orange lol, and yeah i am happy with my tariff 400 min and 1000 text for £35 cause thats more then i need as i text more then calling and o2 do have the best text bundles, its carlos who is having probs with orange
@claire u got a great deal with your line rental just a shame its with orange i used orange before i joined o2 and had nothing but trouble with them charging me for messages i had not sent calls i hadnt made and the customer service was not worth commenting on but if ur happy then thats great would have been better if you had got the phone free as well
Thats what i did i went straight to the disconnections as they are the only ones that can offer you the good deals, i work in mobiles meself and i know if you call the network you get what you want but brokers and service providers have to work on a budget, so thats why i deal direct with the network cause even my company could not offer it me free as they got a banding of £185
@claire i dont deal with contracts i work in pay n go and cannot give myself anything but do know how to get what i want without threatening to leave or shouting all u need to do is ask and be prepared to bargain and dont go straight to upgrade department go straight to disconnections they already expect u to leave if this advice helps anyone please email me
apologies to claire last posting meant for wozza m8 i told em nothing i foned for the 6680 ordered it and got it didnt threaten to leave and they told me because of my spending they would reduce my rental for me
well as your staff of course you give yourself anything as my mate works for voda and she everything free and very very cheap line rental, and £35 is ok for me and yes i paid £49.99 for my phone but ive sold my 7610 for £150 so really not lost out, and as i said before it depends who you get on the other end of the phone
@ claire yes u get it for 20 a month but u had to pay for the phone i didnt and i didnt need to ask for this and next month i get everything half price including line rental as my staff tarrif kicks in
