I am from the Sth Wales Valleys and i have never had 3G. For a few days i am getting 3G but then it goes only to return. There's no real pattern to this. I will get it in the same street then if i was to return to that street it would not reappear. Also when i switch my phone off then on i will get 3G. any else experience this?
I did check that the same time I had 3g but the live status says no 3g. have had a few different explanations to this. One is that the area is switching to 3g, that sometimes my signal picks up 3g in other masts when my signal drops & there is work going on in the area. I have asked O2 direct but they cant give a definite reason or are able to find out if work is being carried out/upgrading to 3G. Guess I’ll have to hold out for a few months to see what happens before deciding to change providers.
The choice is entirely yours. Personally, a free upgrade to a phone that will probably be capable of 4G, but only have the ability to get 3G at best, and maybe not even that, wouldn't be worth it to me. What's the point of having a good phone that you can't use to its potential?
