A while back I wrote about my problems with Orange.
Reception is still terrible at home and at work (both within the Oxford ring road), despite the deal Orange struck with T-Mobile.
Thankfully, now that my wife has an iPhone 4s, we can take advantage of iMessage and FaceTime. Whereas the mobile network results in missed calls, annoying static, and text messages that refuse to send, the magic of the interwebs delivers high resolution video calls with crystal clear sound, and messages that send instantly and reliably.
How very 21st century!
