Mobile Phone Carriers [Mar. 18th, 2008|01:45 pm]
Douglas Spencer
My current mobile phone carrier, with whom I have a contract that's imminently due for renewal, is pissing me off. This is because, while they have an excellent system for keeping track of users who don't want any unsolicited marketing calls, their upgrades department can't actually use it. They've currently been instructed that, if I get another call (of which I've already had several) reminding me that I'm shortly entitled to an upgrade, I'll cancel with them and go and set up a new contract somewhere else. I'm competent to manage my contract myself, and I've kept a note of the dates when the contract is available for renegotiation and when it comes to an end.

My first task on opening a new mobile contract is always to instruct the carrier that their marketing department shouldn't phone me. I'd like a carrier on whom I can rely to honour that instruction.

So this is the obligatory "suggest a mobile carrier" thread. UK, contract rather than PAYG, lowish usage and unlikely to reach the contracted-included number of calls and texts, would like a low price, not too fussed about handset features.

Thoughts?

I've just had two vodafone agents phone me ... the people that originally sold me my first contract and phone many years (which is fair enough, I gave them my details, I bought from them, and if anyone should be in the frame for saying "hi, you are out of your tie-in period and can have a new phone and renegotiate your contract" it's them.

The other one today was Warren at "PhoneTrader", and I must admit I didn't think much of his sales style, but he said he'd phone back with some lower rates and such, but hasn't.

I will phone Vodafone directly and see what they offer, and then talk to T-Mobile again and see what they are offering, and then cancel one contract and stick to one lower tariff including data.
