I use Vodafone. Can't say I've really had a problem (touch wood).

I did however use Orange, though they had worse coverage.

I use Vodafone as well used to be with T-Mobile can't fault either really but hope Vodafone 3G improves when they upgrade the network with 4G.

My personal handset is T-Mobile.
My work handset is Vodafone, though sometimes I think I'd be better off with a carrier pigeon.

I did use O2 but it was awful. Call quality was like speaking on a phone in the 50's.

On 3 now and its been fine

I'm on the Full Monty on T-Mobile and they are pretty alright. Whilst they might not have fast speeds like 3, it is always nice to have at least a 2G signal when you're p***ed as a fart, at a whetherspoons in Newport City Centre, and you need someone to pick you up.

Giffgaff, but was previously on O2.

For my secondary phone I use Talkmobile.

I can relate to that.

O2 and I doubt I will be with them much longer. 2G network good. 3G network hopless! Im not a big data user but if I was I would be really pissed off

Personal phone is with Three.

Work phone is with BT Mobile. I voted for Three, but probably make more calls on this one to be honest.

I am on O2 Pay and Go and top up with 10 per month but see that they have now introduced a new Pay and Go, Go, Go tariff.
According to what I have read, you lose your 10 credit at the end of the monthy period with this new tariff, whereas my credit on Pay and Go just accumulates and can get to rather large amounts unless you make a lot of calls or don't top up and therefore start paying for your texts and data.

I use three one plan I don't get a brilliant data signal [2MB/3MB Download] in my house but can't fault three for that as no network I have been on have ever had good speeds at my house. I can perfectly use it for calling and texting though and the wifi fixes everything else perfectly reliable just slow is all so that's fine. Outside the house though I get 8-14MB so perfectly happy with network it's reliable and fast on the go and unlimited data and no throttling plus eventually will be getting free 4G so perfectly happy with network.

I'm in Ireland so I use an Irish mobile network called Meteor. I also have a UK Orange PAYG SIM card lying around, but I hardly ever use it.

T-Mobile. I'm counting down the days until my contract with them ends. Constantly switches network with Orange, causing me to lose signal on my phone.

I'm on o2, I have been since day one, never had a problem, even when the network went down twice I was not affected..

I do however had a backup phone, the sim card was my fathers and when he died I kept the sim card in the backup phone, it's a one to one sim which shows you how old the sim card is..
