Samsung Galaxy Alpha available today on Voda

The shiny metallic Galaxy Alpha is now available in a choice of three colours on Vodafone. You can get it on 3G or, if you choose a 4G Red XL or Red XXL plan then you’ll get the double entertainment deal we mentioned last week. Prices start

More iPhone 6 pre-order details

With the O2 and EE websites both struggling under the load of iPhone fans trying to pre-order, we headed over to Carphone Warehouse to check prices. We’ve already covered the Vodafone deals, but if you’re looking to get the handset on either EE or O2 then expect

Vodafone iPhone 6 Pre-order details

If you’re looking to get the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus on pre-order today, definitely read our earlier story with all the links, stores and networks offering the device. As I type a lot of mobile networks have their websites collapsing under the sheer volume of

Vodafone enable HD Voice too

One of the reasons I didn’t want to leave Orange was because me and my wife were both customers and I’d got used to the HD voice quality. In the early days (Orange rolled out HD Voice in 2010) this wideband audio functionality was only available on

giffgaff go a bit mental as their advertising campaign continues

Remember how giffgaff began their “#alltheboss” advertising campaign? The MVNO network recently tweaked their prices and packages but their advertising campaign definitely hasn’t slowed down. In fact, it’s gone over the line a little. It’s basically, as far as we understand it, a way to promote the

Phones 4u gets ditched by Vodafone

Looking for a new contract with Phones 4u? In February there’s going to be a reduced choice of networks. Vodafone has decided to ditch the chain and “enhance” their relationship with Dixons Carphone (aka Carphone Warehouse). Founded back in 1987 by John Caudwell, Phones 4u will soon

Order until 10PM for delivery the next working day on O2

Imagine the scene. I’m sitting on the sofa, feet up and watching another episode of Traffic Cops. To my right, my wife is buying clothes on Next.co.uk. It’s fairly late at night, but the clothes and shoes arrive the morning after. Now O2 are at it too,

LG G2 going cheap on Vodafone

Whilst looking around for a new handset, I stumbled across a sale that Vodafone are doing. They’ve discounted the £99 up-front fee normally charged on their contract LG G2 and you can pick it up (until September 17th) for free on plans starting at a measly £18.50

EE 4G now covers the greatest town in the UK

EE has announced another raft of locations to be bathed in 4G. They include the Prime Minister’s home constituency of Witney and a rather fantastic town called Burntwood where handsome and intelligent people live. We’ve even got the smallest park in the world, so smoke on that.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha coming to EE, pre-order on Thursday

Sure, it looks a bit like the Galaxy S5, but the Alpha has a more “premium” feel and a posh metal frame. Call it a potential iPhone 6 rival, call it a HTC One M8 competitor, we’ve got all the details here. Inside there’s a 12 megapixel

GiffGaff to change goodybag prices soon

We recently covered the news that GiffGaff were asking their members how they wanted a new and improved goodybag to work. Have a read here if you’re interested. Basically they need to change how the unlimited data package works as apparently some users are using far too

EE in hot water over Priority Answer service

You know that new service that EE have started offering everyone but their pay and go customers? Yeah, the one where you pay 50p to queue jump. Well, it has landed them in some hot water on social media channels. #EE is just the RyanAir of mobile

giffgaff considering package changes

We’ve already seen the annoyance at networks who increase prices mid-way through contracts, so it’s rather surprising to see giffgaff considering a big change in their packages, aka goodybags. The changes, which are being emailed out to customers for their opinions, could see the unlimited data getting

EE roll out 4G in 250th town

EE have announced their 250th town in the UK now has 4G coverage with the Cornwall area now being included in the 4G rollout which has now hit 0ver 73% population coverage. EE is still plugging away switching as many sites as on as possible to allow

Find your next network by strength easily

This got pushed into my Twitter timeline and, despite it being in beta, it looks fairly promising. If you’re looking for your next phone and are considering a switch to another network, coverage maps are always good to check. They’ll let you know what the signal is

Three launch new SIM only plans

Three UK has today launched a new range of SIM-only contracts. In a way this mirrors how they relaunched their contract plans recently. Customers will be able to start at just £7 a month for 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. This includes free 0800

Vodafone launch WorldTraveller, but…

If you’re a regular reader then you’re probably already aware of the Three Feel At Home service. It costs nothing if you’re a Three customer and it automatically lets you use your bundled data, minutes and texts in 16 different countries just as if you were back

Three issues an apology

I’ve got to give it to the ad people, this one is rather clever. Three have issued the following TV commercial to formally apologise to the great British public.. It is, of course, to promote their Feel At Home service, which lets you travel to one of

What has Glastonbury and this hard drive got in common?

This is a 2.5TB hard drive. It can store stacks of pictures, plus there’s room for all those “specially backed-up DVD’s” you have too. Now, imagine downloading everything off this drive onto your phone. That’d take quite a while wouldn’t it? Somehow this is how much data
