I get terrible reception with Orange. Also, their data speeds are pretty horrific too, and in August, there was a lot of problems. I emailed the Orange CEO outlining my disappointment with reception after having moved address (I'm 3 months into my contract and moved address recently - my previous address had okish reception). I did ask about any options on terminating the contract, but the customer relations person that responded just patronised me about how cell reception works and deteriorates out of their control. Basically, I know Orange won't cancel my contract. I'm not expecting them to. But it'll be £735 to cancel it, since it is a 2 year contract. Does anyone think I'd have any chance of paying off the contract but at a reduced rate? The plan is to pay off the Orange contract and switch to Vodafone (my flatmate is with them and he has had no reception issues inside our flat or around town). If I pay off my contract now, that'll be £735. I can sell my 32GB iPhone 4 for around £450-£500. I'll still be down around £250. Not to mention that I'll need to buy another iPhone 4 on Vodafone (£250). Overall cost is £500. Another option is to wait till May next year, pay off the contract (be around £380 then), sell my iPhone and get £400 if I'm lucky, and then get the new iPhone when it comes out in June/July. But that means I'm stuck with rubbish reception till then.. Oh, and this has nothing to do with the iPhone 4 reception problems. I use a bumper and I can replicate all this by placing the phone on a table.
