mobile phone help

Recommended Posts

I have had a phone for years brought my first one back in the days when you pulled a aerial out to make a call and there was no texting and a couldn't afford to use it Embarassed (love gadget's) and always been with vodafone (great coverage but not very good customer care)

Keeping my number is very important to me I have a HTC desire best phone i have had ,and i pay £31 a month 600 min unlimited text and 500 MB besides calls i need to keep a eye on the forum and f/book twitter etc.

My question is i think i pay to much and would like to go to another provider my contract is up but think i have to give a months notice (dont know how it works)

what do you think or what can you advise me please HELP!

also i am in no rush because i feel i have a good phone and not tied to any thing at the mo

You can take your number to another provider. YOU KEEP YOUR EXISTING NUMBER. Ring your provider, tell them you are unhappy with their service/charges, the law is clear they have to allow you to transfer your number to another provider. See conditions post below.

This is a response from the BF to a similar question.

i was with orange upto a few weeks ago, was sick of being ripped off so i've gone over to giffgaff which is MUCH cheaper!

giffgaff are powered by o2. They are PAYG only AFAIK.

I get the same amount of minutes, same texts, 750mb data and BTopenzone wifi (which doesn't work in my area) for £30 a month but is going up in Feb if Orange get their way. I would leave but I struggled to find a deal as good anywhere else for the same phone and still would struggle even with the price hike.

If you are keeping the same phone why not go to t-mobile and get a sim only deal it will be much cheaper and you can keep your number, I have been with them for 3 years now and it includes the orange network as well.

Dave I pay 27 a month, on a HTC desire s, so next one up, 300 mins, unlimited texts, and 500mb,

Don't go Tesco they are known for bad signal stick with o2, voadafone etc, also dont go Orange their contracts can go up halfway thru with no warning,

If you wana keep your phone o2 do a Sim only plan you will get what you do for stout.d 18 a month on a contract you can cancel any time

Our lawyers here at Which? point out that the rise is covered by section 4.3 in Orange’s T&Cs, and can stand unless it is successfully challenged as unfair.

The Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 says a clause is likely to be unfair if it allows ‘a seller […] to increase their price without [...] giving the consumer the corresponding right to cancel the contract if the final price is too high in relation to the price agreed when the contract was concluded’.
