I personally think they should scrap data limits on 3G forever if on a contract.

Its ridiculous in this day and age that they still charge for GPRS on PAYG on all networks AFAIK. You would have thought that with phones eating such high volumes of data those on lesser connections with basic featurephones would be rewarded with free access.

A bit like when a PC game has been out for 10 years, the developers often make them totally freeware.

It very bad of them to promote and shout about all the things you can do with your smartphone and at the same time pin you down with extortionate fees.

But it need not be that way. I paid nothing for my SGS3 on contract and pay a small £33 a month for it, with all the minutes id ever need, unlimited texts and internet - tethering included.

So if my operator could do that im sure others can. But they dont which is why im no longer a customer with O2.

Me too. I'm on the One Plan. When I upgraded they told me their LTE will be up and running around June/ July 2013 and it will be available. Samsung are building Three's LTE network so hopefully it will give us proper LTE speeds.

I am happy with Three,£15 top up gets unlimited data,texts and 300 minutes which is better than some similar priced contracts. As for 4G I think the paltry data is bad when considering the massive capacity 4G will have. They are obviously trying to claw the cash back from buying the licenses for 4G. When I went into an EE store I asked a woman if and when will 4G be on pay as you go. She shrugged her shoulders and rudely said 'i don't know' and walked off

It sure is going to be intresting to see other rivals plans when they get 4G themselves
I cannot see EE caving there prices down in the meantime .. atleast by end of next year
we should have more decisions on whom we go for (Network wise)

Im in doubt if I will remain with Orange EE !

Does that 920 do anything differently to the 800 (I see in your signature?)

Yes of course it does. Windows phone 8,dual core,1 gig ram,1.5ghz,4.5 inch HD screen,and the very first mobile phone camera with optical image stabilization rather than digital which actually works. It really stops the shake. Also has NFC loads more than Lumia 800. Also has a Puremotion HD+ display which works with even gloves,finger nails etc super sensitive but you can also turn that off too. The new camera takes stunning shots in low light

Have they?? I had a contract with T Mobile for two years,renewed but they hiked their prices. As a result I had a big dispute with them despite what it may say in contract. I am now free of the contract after going down certain routes I don't agree with them hiking prices when it's supposed to be a fixed amount over the term,in my view THEY are in breach of contract.

Oh no, what I meant was the prices of new contracts.

You used to be able to get a full monty plan for £26 pm but the closest one now is £36 pm
