    After a quick look, I can see T-Mob have a site at Kelting House, Eastgate Shopping Complex, SS14.

    Thanks Stuart. Do 3 have anything closer to SS16 6TQ. The reason I ask is that Eastgate is about 2 miles away, but there what looks like a mobile tower about 1/2 a mile away.

    EDIT

    I have just taken a look at both companies coverage maps and probably answered my own question.

    I am right on the edge of a T-Mobile OK / no coverage area, but bang in the middle of a 3 good coverage area.

    So this merger of networks sounds like it will be good for me.

    That's interesting

    The first one is the one about 1/2 a mile away, the 3 one is about a mile.

    Thanks again Stuart

    If you stroll up to the street cabinet it will have a little sticker on it somewhere saying who the operator is.

    what about the T mobile £10 deal?

    im pretty sure its:

    100 xnetwork minutes
    unlimited texts (booster)
    unlimited web

    £169 for the phone

    anyone else think this is a great deal (if 100mins is enough for you per month)

    though am like some of you i imagine am worried about the quality of T mobile 3g rather than just coverage?

    This is the deal I am looking at too.

    I was originally going to go with Vodafone because the T-mobile street checker showed poor 2G coverage for my postcode yet good for 3G :confused:

    But both my wife and daughter have Virgin phones and have good signal strength so I think I will try T-mobile.

    Virgin piggy-back T-Mobiles network, so I guess after October T-Mob, 3 & Virgin will have identical 3G coverage. Remember 3 will continue to roam onto Orange for 2G coverage.

    If you can get a 3G T-Mobile signal I reckon you should get a 2G signal too, looks a good deal, I think I'm going to go for £20 a month and free phone as its really just for the Web.

    A 2G 900/1800Mhz signal has better building penetration than a 3G signal at 2200Mhz.

    Do you think if the price goes down that they will decrease it as well?

    Ordered through tmobile website yesterday (business contract) and had a call today to confirm my credit check etc and was told they'll be arriving Friday and as a new customer i'll be in line to receive from the first batch.

    I'm guessing this means delivery next monday at the earliest?

    Went for the £20 tariff for 18 months (£60 refund from topcashback business contracts)

    Can't wait!!

    most likely yea because im after for an upgrade. i have read somewhere how people who wish to upgrade, get the phones first.

    It happened to the htc hd2. infact, thats where i read it. The phone was available for people who wished to upgrade it first.

    My phones due an upgrade next month....And i came across the same problems...But....The lady i spoke to told me at anyone time people on T-mobile can have upto 4 extra lines on the original account.

    So i've set up a new line ordered my desire at noon yesterday and then at the end of the month plan to pay off my other line.

    Bit of a pain but im happy knowing that on Saturday i'll have a desire.

    Definately getting this phone on T-mobile, but im not sure whether an upgrade or new deal would be best.

    My contract doesnt with T-mobile doesnt run out until 30th of May. I havent upgraded before as i usually find a new contract or change operator but i'm looking to see what kind of deal they will offer.

    I've tried ringing but they wouldnt give me any information before my upgrade date.

    Is this how upgrades with t-mobile usually work? As my contract ends on the 30th of May i'd have thought i would have been able to find out deals beforehand.

    Yes, I will get the Desire and my OH is having an LG Intouch. Have been told we can stay on our 12 month contract and get both phones free.

    Currently have 250 minutes shared, unlimited texts and Web N Walk plus on one of the phones. Pay about £60-£65 a month at the moment.
