Help.. Which phone tariff is better

Post by paki_girl_19 » Sun May 13, 2007 1:49 pm

Hey im really stuck on which phone network or tariff i should move on to :?

I know i should be ringing a mobile shop for advice but i want to know what you guys think? :roll:

I hate wastin my money on all the topping up and its just that i use to be on Orange but at the moment im on Vodafone and O2
But now i just want 1 phone, 1 number and pay less than £30 :!:

I know vodafone is good for free weekend calls. And has free calls to 3 or 6 people but the problem is its only free to ring other vodafone numbers.

Oh yeah and i know that o2 is good in the sense that you get cheap calls to other 02 numbers and u can get free texts but like i said im stuck.

Another thing is i heard that orange have got this new thing out where you can call or text other people on orange (per minute i think) for only 2 pence


:arrow: What phone networks or contracts are you guys on :?:
If any of you are on contract, how much are you payin a month?
Please help.
Thanks :)

Contracts are a rip off - they charge extra cash sometimes (even if you aint gone over texts and mins :shock:). it's time consuming because then you have to back to the shop and complain blah blah then they correct it so paki girl contracts aint good..

i'm on the Orange network and i top up about £10-£20 a month. Personally i don't like the offers because they come after such a long time and some offers apply to new customers ONLY :evil: :shock:

O2 is goood. Most of my mates are on O2 simply because you can get more treats and that. Also the customer services are much better compared to Orange and 3G

I think the best phone network has to be Vodafone...they have introduced the new Family Tree or summat and it's really good

Hope that helped! :lol:

You should get a 3G contract, if you text more they are offering like 3000 texts and 75 minutes for £15 or lyk 3000 minutes for £15 and a pretty decent fone, the covererage is moderate/ good and still works and all of these minutes are crossnetwork
alternativly you can get the new vodaphone contracts which stop the clock after 2-3 moinutes dependong on how much our contract is and this bassically means you can talk for however long you like and only use 3 minutes per fone call :p
hope this helps :D

If you went to get advice from a phone shop etc... There's a 99% chance that the salesman will persuade you into a contract.. haha :$ sad but true :p the 99% figure is obviously exaggerated :$

my advice: contact your current network provider and ask them for the best contract tariff they can fofer, else you shall be upgrading to contract with someone else.

I did this with orange, i now get 2500mins, unlimited texts and WAP downloads for £35 a month and my D900 was free (a year ago). Haggle, dont be afraid to ask for managers and decide the minutes and texts you want before ringing and dont accept anything less.if the customer service agent hears your confidence in speech and that your not afraid to leave, they will do whatever they can to retain you as a customer as they get a bonus for each customer retained. ;)
Erm...Yea So As I Was Saying....
