Mobiles uk
« on: August 27, 2015, 09:23:09 AM »
That time again.

So after like 17 years I'm thinking fuck Vodafone.

I hear 3 do a sim only for unlimited mins, txts and data for 27 which is the best I've seen so far.

Am rocking an iPhone 4 and not too fussed about changing it except for a waterproof Sony Experia and most likely the compact version, I think 3 do that all for like 35.

So any ideas on what phones are good? Is it worth getting a new iPhone? Are there any awesome deals you know about or have you used an Experia and I so what are they like?

I'm on GiffGaff with a Nexus 5 I got for 200 when they were selling them off cheap over a year ago. Been really good and saved me a lot of money compared to a contract.
But I also have a Three Sim which I use in the US and really do make a huge saving on data roaming (last trip I used data that would have cost over 6k on GiffGaff and only cost 20). I would happily go with Three all the time IF there was any signal in my house...

If you travel outside the EU then check the countries Three covers within the plan, if you go outside those areas too then you really need an unlocked phone so you can use a local SIM.

I need a new phone soon too and am looking for reputable places to buy unlocked UK phones too if anyone has any suggestions?

I'd have to think hard when the last time I left London was let alone the country so I'm not too fussed about roaming.

I am hearing that the 3 reception is terrible.

Cex for buying phones?

I've been with Three for a fair amount of time. They're good.

Thanks, but 4g bands are EITHER "USA" or "Worldwide". USA wont work well for me here or in Taiwan, worldwide version wont work well in USA... Plus I really want a great camera. Done a fair bit of searching and so far S6 definitely looks like the best bet, though I wish it had a bigger screen and was waterproof, but hey you cant have everything... Tempted by dual SIM version but doesn't seem worth the extra cash and worried it will be a slightly downgraded version for developing markets....

My waterproof Sony phone isn't quite as waterproof as advertised,  learned that the hard way. Consider them 'splashproof',  it's no gopro.

I can attest that this is an absolutely great phone. I have one (although it's currently in a drawer, lack of a waterproof case makes it a no go for field work) and I'm running Paranoid Android on it and couldn't be happier.

Was a big step up from the Nexus 5 I had before that, although the 5.5" screen takes some getting used to,

I'm a fan of HTC phones, currently on the One mini, and my previous One S is still going after 3.5 years or so. Good tech, decent price, and I throw mine all of the place and they are fine

In that case I'll stick with my iPhone 4.

Have ordered a giff gaff sim. 3 just sounds bad in London from the people I've spoken to.

Cheers for your helps!
