Is Virgin Coverage Any Good?

I have a Nokia 5800 through Virgin and want to upgrade to a proper smart phone - likely an HTC. The internet on the 5800 is poor. Is it the network or just and old phone .... which has served me well.

Virgin's network is great, they use both Orange and T-mobile cell towers, as they're a virtual network.

Is their 3G through Orange yet?

tmobile and orange should be ready by january (for 3g i think)

3 mobile doesnt use orange anymore. it only uses its own 3g network.

Just the other day someone on here that their Virgin phone was picking up an Orange signal and displaying the fact it was on the Orange network...Virgin never used Orange, they use T-Mobile's network, who share with Orange nowadays as "everything-everywhere".

3 were on oranges network when they started. it was never on t-mobile (i remember when i was trying to get orange to compete with 3 their main selling point was that they use their own network 3 use theirs...)

Ignore me, it was Virgin that can access both T-Mob & Orange.
