    Looking to upgrade the phoe again, ive got a desire but i really want an iphone 4, and ive just seen the deal on orange with unlimited internet, and to be honest ive not been heppy with vodafones treating of me over some over charging they did.

    Anyway are orange any good, ive had them ages ago like 5 years now, so i wondered if they were any better, or had got worse?? I thought their signal was very good, and i never had too much to complain about with them.

    Whats your opinions

    I was on orange for 6 years and they were great. I have just moved back to them from 02 who i was with for 5 years. I have had a desire on orange for about 3 months now. The desire is such a better phone than the new iphone.

    The desire can make calls as it has a signal so its better already :p

    The only thing that is better on the iphone is the market/app store but then they have had time to perfect that.

    I hate Apple as a company and dont really rate their products so im probably a bit biased. I have debranded by desire and updated it to froyo 2.2.

    Hmmm, this might cloud your judgement, no? :biggrin

    No probs with my iPhone since I upgraded the firmware.

    I've been with orange for 6ish years, always done me well. Infact, i havent paid more than 15/m on a 18 month contract for 600 xnet anytime minutes, unlim txts, free interweb, got about 7 magic numbers now, and always get a decent phone (worth around 100-150 to sell) out of it. :biggrin

    Signal is very good too.. used to be on t-mobile and that was terrible.:eek:

    My brother has an iphone for work, he hates it and wants his blackberry back.

    I have used an iphone before but imo it wasnt as good as the desire.

    Yeah but to be fair if he wants a Blackberry he's not that into his phones is he...... :twisted:

    I'll only go with Orange for 1 reason, Orange Wednesdays! I'm a total film buff and with an Odeon 5 minutes away, it would be rude not too! In all seriousness me and my girl pay £11 for the two of us with a massive drink and massive popcorn with the voucher plus we have a Odeon card to earn points. Love it :biggrin

    TBH I was so off topic with my reply that I've deleted it. Orange are a very good network

    On Orange currently with my HTC £30 a month unlimited internet. Really good. I'm taking full advantage of their Orange Wednesdays 2 for 1 cinema tickets as well. Seen Karate Kid last week, wasn't the same without the old Mr Miyagi.

    Orange have some good deals but I have had some poor customer service encounters, that was the reason why i left them.....

    just something to think about

    I am with orange and have been for about 2 months and they seem fine, only downside is the unlimited data is about 500mb where on o2 is was 1gb.

    Got the free desire, 300 xmins, ultd texts and unltd data for £25 and thats all i pay.

    Orange wednesdays are great and use them about twice a month so am already saving myself £16 a month.

    just back to orange about a month ago with a HTC Desire, ! was with them years ago.

    Left Orange to go to 02, but as customer loyalty is an alien concept to them, I jumped ship after 3 years.

    Cant fault the reception so far
