Bitterwallet's Friday poll - O2, Orange or Vodafone for your iPhone needs?
We hear you - we should be covering more iPhone news. There are only so many hours in the day, but we'll give it a shot. While we blow our wages on our 12th consecutive battery life app, you get to decide the best course of action for fresh faced iphone buyers new to the wonderful world of dropped calls and a battery life that'll see you through a text message if you're lucky.
In the blue corner - O2. Everyone seems to rate their customer services, their bundles allow for MMS messaging and texts sent from abroad, they haven't got shirty about data allowances but then their 3G coverage both sucks and blows. In the orange corner... Orange. They managed to somehow screw up what should have been the easiest product announcement in the world. Their tariffs don't distinguish them from O2, they'll charge for MMS message and roaming SMS on top of any tariff and nobody has a kind word to say about their customer services. On the plus side, Orange boasts better 3G coverage and they're offering tethering charges which aren't entirely unreasonable.
Finally, there's the opponent that won't enter the ring until January - Vodafone. They're talking of some big surprises and exciting tariffs for their iPhone offers, but so did Orange and look what happened there. And so to Friday's poll - how would you advise a new iPhone customer to buy? What do you mean, there's no fourth option suggesting an Android handset? Be quiet.
