Orange issues

About a fortnight ago I received a text from Orange telling me they’d improved network coverage around where I live. Ever since then I’ve hadissues sending email from my phone, which is why moblogs and pictures have started arriving in clumps. I don’t believe the two are related, so I fear Orange’s servers may be over stressed.

It’s about time for me to renew/change my contract anyway. I’m currently paying far too much and really need a better deal. Does anyone have suggestions for the best mobile package with data rate?
