Summary

Andy at EE provided excellent service, explaining why a contract was best and recommending a nice looking phone with plenty of playground credibility.

O2’s Jaz also gave good recommendations, though her information on the Nokia was a little inaccurate.

Three’s mystery man would have been helpful if the old handset he produced had actually worked.

Roger from Carphone seemed uninterested in my request, while Vodafone’s Anju just seemed aggressive when she realised I didn’t want a 24-month contract.
