    Hmm

    well, i used to be with Orange, and have had my iPhone for around 6-7 months now, and personally, i find O2 are a far better provider with far more helpful support and signal coverage down here in the muddy land of Cornwall!

    so if they offer similar prices, my money would still be on 02..

    I am with Orange and was very close to leaving to go to O2, however it would have been a big hassle with my number, now I don't have to, just wait a few more months and pretty sure I'll get a free upgrade :-)

    Actually moving numbers between networks is quite easy. Probably about the only thing that is!

    pretty sure I'll get a free upgrade
    Heh. Will be interesting if they do that!

    Yup, was going to upgrade within the next few days but may as well wait and see what deal i can get. I like Orange as a company, never really done anything misleading

    I wish this was announced back in June. I'd have waited as I was with Orange, got good service from them and the O2 signal in a few schools isn't great where is was better with Orange.

    I know that moving numbers is easy, but I was going to run both phones side by side for 5months until my Orange contract ran out and then try and get my number across, they told me a O2 that was possible, but I'm not so sure, but now no hassle :-)

    Signal wise there has only been one place where signal was pants but I won't be going back there again and that was when I purchased my car somewhere near london but I dont work or go to London and when I do its very rarely.

    Other then that I have had great signal reception - 3G reception can be a pita esp when you are trying to use googlemaps for aprox directions

    They have failed to meet targets or breached the contract with Apple I read online the other month, thus the reason why Orange now have it.

    I don't see any reason why not, if it's unlocked anyway.

    Can you unlock an iPhone, or is that what jailbreaking is?

    Jailbreaking allows the installation of third party apps (i.e. non App-Store apps), onto the phone.

    Unlocking is using one of the third party apps (such as ultrasn0w) to be able to use any SIM in the phone.

    You can jailbreak without unlocking - but you have to jailbreak if you want to unlock.
