I'm leaving BT anywhere. I need to close the broadband line and with it goes the mobile phone.
Thanks for running this forum. I've not participated much, but when I have it's been very useful. I do appreciate the advice, especially from the regulars. Many thanks to you all.
I haven't a clue where to go now. I liked my HTC Desire, more than 2 years old now. I paid very little for the low usage contract. I suppose my choices are a sim only deal & keep the Desire, or a better but still budget smart phone. I'm thinking of the Samsung III.
All advice gratefully received....
I have a Samsung 2 and it has been a great phone so I would imagine the Samsung 3 would be just as good.
Sorry you are leaving........
You'd do much worse than any of the Samsung Galaxy S series IMHO. Might be worth checking out the latest Nexus model as well. [Check out SIM free & then SIM only deals] ?
Make sure you dont drop the next phone though
All the best,
I'll definitely look at the Nexus. Good point about sim free/only. I'm such a light user that I'm thinking of a payg. So that might suit well.
Smashing the screen is something you only do once in your life, right?
On the sim only deal...I'm attracted by the rates at giffgaff. But then remembered that BT said the PAC code porting business would only work with Vodafone, Orange, O2 or 3. I wonder what that's about. Why is giffgaff sidelined?
Giff Gaff has no customer service as such; most of its done online and by a forum. It runs on the back of o2 and there are a lot of users on here.
PAC should be ok.
I'm on V****n SIM only
Glad to hear about the PAC code.
Are BT phones locked? How much do they charge for unlocking?
Call BT and ask for unlock code. Most providers give it out no problem after contract has ended because the phone is now paid for.
As there is no BT software on your Desire phone it should already be unlocked to network. Pop another providers SIM in and check.
