    Anyone paying 25p per minute for calls and 12 per text on PAYG is crazy. It's very easy to get PAYG deals for 8-10p per minute and 4-5p per text. These often have other benefits too like free calls on the same network. The best thing to do in cases like this is to vote with your feet and move to a more competative provider.

    |That depends on your usage. I'm on Orange and I'm staying there. Why? Because coverage where I need it is good, and I don't make enough outgoing calls to care whether it's 20p or 25p per minute. It's not worth my time faffing about changing. And as for texts, I don't care if they're 12p or £12 each, because I do not text, either in or out, and anyone that knows me well enough to have my mobile number knows that.

    MTR limits will ensure that mobile networks aren't able to gouge each other with expensive termination fees
    So naturally, their response is to return to gouging their customers instead.
