[access-uk] Re: Choosing/switching mobile phone/providers questions

not poor hearing but it hink for example, that the speakerphone is much better when out and about ont he n seventy three plus if i get an n eighty two no one wants my n seventy three so i may as well just stick with this phone until it breaks, smile. no contract offers the n eighty two now if that KNFB reader was four hundred quid cheaper it would be in everyones price range. but most people jsut roll over figuratively speaking and accept the current prices, we are a small market? maybe. but surely we should ahve the freedom to the eader for a considerably lower price. itis not our fault we can't see it is just nature for most of us or the way we were born, and where are we who are unemployed, for the most part, going to find nine hundred pounds to buy something to read the odd letter, or bill?

Hi Will,

Do you have poor hearing then? Do you need it much louder? Personally I think Talks sounds harsh on the N73, and besides, the N73 is an old phone
anyway <Smile>.

All the best

Steve

hi but the n sevnety three is much much louder guys than the n eighty two. i love the KNFB reader too but who has got the money to spend on it, 900 plus pounds? it should be hundred quid and that's that as no one can afford it. for me when i saw the ne ighty two, the design is great but the sound is the
worst i ahve ever heard on any phone

Very interesting and useful to know Steve, thanks.  I love the keypad
on the N82.  I've had a play with the K-Reader on that phone and it's
very impressive.

Hi Jackie,

Yes, only in that the battery life is about three times as long.

All the best

Actually so do I, except I haven't got one ... yet.

Hi Carol,

Just to point out that older phones like the 6630 are no longer
available, and you are therefore, not likely to get them from an
operator with a new contract.  Third Edition phones are the "in
thing" now, such as the E65, E75, N82 (The best phone ever so far in
my view), the N95, etc.

All the best

Steve

Hi Catherine,

As I'm exitting Orange as a very unhappy customer of theirs, I'm
delighted to tell you as much as I can.  (See my answers to your
questions
below)

1.  Could I leave before my contract's up?  How do I even find out
I had graduated to a £15 monthly contract where only a month's
notice had to be given, because I thought I was on the way out!
Well, usually with contracts they say they still charge you ... even
if you go ...

If you've been paying much over the odds, do what I intend to do and that's to go to OFFCOM, if they don't give me the money back they've
taken falsely!
2.  What happens, if/when you switch providers, about keeping the
same phone number?
You ask them for a PAC (Port Authorization Code) which they will
send you in the post.  Then you sign up with another provider and
they import the number.  There's a short delay, so you may have a
temporary number for a few days, but it works out OK.  I've done it
once already and am just doing it again with two phones.

3.  Has anyone got any comments accessibilitywise about particular
providers?  Or phones for that matter.  I'm happy with my Nokia
6630 with Talks and a hefty crack in the screen, but if switching
means I get a new phone which I can instal Talks, MobileSpeak or
SmartHal onto I'll do it. On the other hand is it possible to sign
up for a new contract and use my existing phone?  I think they
usually give you a phone as part of the contract but would I be
able to swap the sim over and use it in my old phone?  If this is
possible I may do it to save money.
I'm sticking to Pay As You Go for the first three months to look at
various contracts with O2.  Even if I was having a contract, I'd
keep my own phones running because TALKS gets expensive to keep
changing.  Yes, you can swap the sims, unless you have very old
phones and then they may not work. The 6630 should be OK.

4.  Has anyone any recommendations for websites that compare
different packages/tariffs?  I had a quick look on
moneysupermarket.com and found the phone comparison tool's search
results a bit hard to understand, though I've used it before for
credit cards.
I suggest you may want to look at

http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/

Or, if you prefer, call in and talk to them.


Can't help you much with your final question, but hopefully this
will get you somewhere.

Write again if you think I can give you any more and of course
privately if you want a bit more info about my problems with Orange.
