    I've been with 3 for four yrs now, not one problem in all that time, can't say what the internet side of it's like cos I don't use it, but billing,coverage and service has all been 100% so far.

    As above, came from T-mobile to 3, never, ever had any issues at all with them.

    Coverage will be good as they piggyback O2 transmitters. International roaming is as good as any.

    Funny you should say that - I was told by T-mobile AND 3 in the last couple of weeks that they shared each other's transmitters...

    I have had contracts with almost every network except 3, and I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt, T-Mobile have the weakest coverage of any of them. Not geographically, but as soon as you go indoors, you can pretty much guarantee losing most, if not all of your signal strength. Sam's brother and sister-in-law are both on 3, and they say the same - outdoors, coverage is great. Indoors, they may as well not bother.

    So, IMO - if you get a good signal now on T-Mobile, you'll be fine with 3. If you're leaving T-Mobile because of patchy coverage, change to one of the big three networks - Orange, O2 or Vodafone.

    Default Change but to vodafone or o2 instead

    hi mate i work for t-mobile, 3 are damn good when it comes to signal and internet coverage, t-mobile are better when it comes to the actual speed of the internet. 3 offer better deals; more mins and txt for your money, but the main thing is 3 are piggybacking of t-mobile and as we all know t-mobile ARE the weakest when it comes to coverage.

    Have a look at Vodafone or o2 instead. They don't dont share their masts with anyone it's damn good signal, but the internet is a little slow and they also offer good deals.
