Thought I would pick up a PAYG SIM and make use of the £5 a month data deal.

SIM arrived popped it into the JasJar and then had the wonderful roaming triangle next to the G.

Now I don't live in a rural area as such so would have expected not to be roaming from home.

I'm dreading what will happen on holiday to sunny Devon.

I live in Fareham and work in Southampton. I get 3G coverage at home albeit poor, but only roaming at work. I dont think you will be able to use the data service on roaming. I certainly cant.

The phone indicates that you are connected to Orange, obviously on 2G. If your in London you are ok, but outside the service is really patchy.

That doesn't inspire confidence, does it? £G here in Woking, not tried elsewhere yet.

Hi Guys,

If you switch your phone to manual and select O2 as the network provider you can connect to the internet fine on 2G.

Cheers

Dean, any sim bought within the last year or so uses Orange not o2 as its 2g backup.

Don't expect much from Devon though! I was out last night at a pub on the A38 and the only 3g I could get was T. Albeit this was while standing outside! :D

That's weird! I tried putting my Athena in 2G mode only and it didn't like it, I tried the SIM in my C600 and it came up invalid SIM. Maybe I shoulkd try again!

I thought you'd sent yours back though, Paul?

I did, this is a PAYG SIM.

I don't mean it'll work in 2G devices, I mean data will work when connected on a 2G connection.

Ah! I thought the voice/data SIMS did work in 2G and 3G and it's only the data only SIMS that don't?

Just returned from holiday in sunny rainy Devon and had an interesting week with coverage.

I have seen O2, Hutchinsons and Orange while traveling around and even where I was staying I had three different networks.

Popped into a 3 shop in Torquay and the guy there was saying I should not be able to roam with O2 now as 3 has stopped their roaming agreement with them.

One thing he did say that was interesting though, is that 3 now have an agreement with Tmobile to use their transmitters without roaming charges being applied. So technically what ever speed you can get on Tmobile you should also get the same with 3.

I thought that deal only covered the 3G(UMTS) masts not 2G? I gather T would be for it, as they had the smallest footprint ofcom licence, and 3 had the biggest.

They are sharing equipment NOT networks - or so it seems.
