    When will shops in the UK start giving details of deals for iPhone5?

    And when should I pre-order my micro-sim because I don't want to have the phone without a sim?

    I assume they will start planning after today. It's usually the same sort of plans as the iPhone 4 was when it was released. They more than likely have their pricing prearranged to be honest. They know what they can charge for the new iPhone. Regardless of today.

    If you are looking at getting a contract for the iPhone 5 I would recommend T-Mobile. You can use Orange's 2G signal and their prices are respectable. I get awesome signal no matter where I am. Even in my girlfriend's parents mobile home in camber sands. Which is in the middle of nowhere, I get 5 bars and 3G.

    o2 is probably the best. I've never had problems with them.

    Down here, their towers go down for hours at a time frequently. And their prices are ludicrous. You get a naff plan unless you pay £45P/M+

    Up here I like 02 because I'm on pay as go, and most of friends are on 02 so free calls is what I like, signal can be pish (I'm in the capital, and sometimes struggle to get 3 bars with any connection, then other times I'm great.
    Tried 3 but not orange, the only problem is I have no friends on orange, ect .....
    So will we be able to pre-order this week the iPhone five. Or what happened last time with iPhone4?

    what about Vodafone?Is their coverage good - I would guess so, since they are the biggest provider over here - or am I wrong?

    I wouldn't trust O2 - my sister is on contract with them ever since she came to the UK - almost 5 years ago. She presumably signed a 2 year obligatory period and now they wouldn't let her change providers unless she pays. She would like to change because of hidden charges - I personally am new here and don't have a clue - but will rather trust my sister.

    My girlfriend and her family are on Vodafone. They get crap signal 24/7. Go T-Mobile.

    Right, try and convert me over from 02, what are the pros and cons
    For t-mobile ( as a pay as you go customer)


    This is why I'm with 02 pay as you;

    Pros
    go topping up
    £10 a month and I get 500Mb Internet a month (does me most of the time)

    Unlimited texts to any network

    And they don't take money off me it's just for topping up

    Then I get an bolt on (add on) for £5 off my tenner, 1000 minutes to 10 of my own selected 02 numbers.

    98% of my friends are on 02

    Cons:
    Singal is sometimes pish (Bars),
    3G connection I struggle to get in some buildings which I can get fine 3G if I stick a 3 Sim in in the same building I struggle to get 3G on 02.
    That's about it really.

    I take it you are on t-mobile my friend ?

    Yeah, unlimited everything. None of that same network crap. Signal is great. I have 5 bars now and I'm in the middle of nowhere.

    Ah. I forgot to mention I'm on a sim-only contract. Hence I get a good deal. I buy the iPhone unlocked every year.

    Ah nice, so if I was to go into a t-mobile shop what deal would I ask for, I might think about it haha,
    When you say "unlimited"
    I take it there's a cap somewhere with all that, or do you mean unlimited for real (don't have to care about going over minutes)?

    It's all unlimited apart from the data. There is a 5GB fair use policy in place. Which you can go over but they charge you extra.
