So word has finally gotten out about the piss-poor state of play with Orange. I've had my current contract with them since May, and have honestly lost count how many times I've called them to get their misfiring filter (Safeguard) removed. Many times, staff found multiple instances of the filter attached to my account.
It wouldn't be such a bad feature if the damned thing actually worked! On my HTC Tattoo, it still blocks me from visiting perfectly harmless websites and forums, like the HTC support forums.
About a month ago, they even tried telling me that I was lucky to be averaging 2.11mbps over HSDPA, when under my previous contract period with them, I always received 7.2mbps. This, they say now, is the result of a faulty sim card.
Because it could never be the result of a crap network.
Sent over 2G, because 3G hasn't worked properly for me in nearly a fortnight.
