...at no extra cost!

I have just received this txt message from VM on my mobile phone.

What is so 'Great' about it?

Will my dongle mobile broadband be any quicker?

Will it be any cheaper or just the same.

They do not give you a lot of information do they.

Maybe the orange signal may be better but I always found it a bit of a hit and miss on certain parts of my Town when using orange.

Thanks buteman...your link will be useful to others, who got the same txt message today.

Thanks, that's useful for a relative of mine.

I'm with Orange and, some time ago, they announced that the phones could also connect through T Mobile. The result is the phone automatically connects to the strongest signal.

I got my message on the 4th of this month so it obviously takes time to filter to north of the border.

buteman, must be a bad signal area ;)

I am quite happy with the signal I get and never go anywhere to change it.

Maybe quicker with jungle drums or smoke signals for you users N,O,T,B.

I always remember Rothesay as being a very poor signal area!

I always remember Rothesay as being a very poor signal area!

Probably nothing to do with the dreadful weather we got when visiting last.

Booked into a bed and breakfast for 2 days but only stayed 1 as the weather was so bad.

Never even noticed what like the signal was as I never stayed long enough.

It was probably my last visit getting a bit old now for driving the 700 mile return trip.
