I will be getting an Apple Watch Series 4, does anyone know if my activity will carry on because I want to keep my move steak etc going, I assume it will because I will be using the same iPhone and Apple ID

1GB of data.....that's strawberry floating gooseberry fool. Even 8gb is too low.

Enough for me as I have wifi at work. Anyone know what coverage with sky is like?

Also this has annoyed me. Apple are discontinuing the iPhone X! this is because they know that they would have to drop the price when the XS comes out but dropping the price of the X would effect sales of the XS! So how do they get round this? remove the problem :x

Don't forget the most important bit: the XR is only waterproof to one metre instead of two.

Bit weird that they've left out 3D Touch, when it's been on every iPhone since the 6S.

I can understand why they had to discontinue the X because it would be far to complicated explaining the difference between the X and the XS and then like you have said they would have to reduce the price of the X slightly probably by around a £100 and then it would be close to the price of the XR and then why would anyone buy the XR, its the same with the Apple Watch when they had to discontinue Series 2 and just keep Series 1 and 3, and now its just Series 3 and 4

Avoiding at all cost then. I am currently with o2 and their service is absolutely terrible. Even when 4G is showing,it is actually slower than 3G or non existent.

Yeah from my experience EE and EE based networks are just plain better and worth the extra cost.

Never had any problems with O2 in London...less so when I leave. Signal is prone to dropping out, particularly indoors.

O2 Priority comes in very handy though.

I guess it depends where you are, but round my way o2 have sucked for years. Also it probably depends on what you find acceptable / how you use your devices.

I stream everything and don't store stuff so I need it to be reliable and fast so that I don't have to drop quality etc. And EE provide that for me. I know a few people on giffgaff but they don't stream so much or are willing to have slower service because its cheaper.

I am on Tesco Mobile PAYG and I only pay £10 a month for 3GB data, 500 Mins and 5,000 Texts, I have BT broadband at home and its connects to any BT when when I am out, I have also registered for free with all the WiFi providers I can such as Sky, o2 etc and it auto connects to them as well, I have never had an issue with speed and I don't even use the 3GB of data

You could move to BT mobile for the same price but unlimited minutes and texts.

I just had a look at that and it's a good deal but I do like the freedom of pay as you go and not being able to be charged more if I go over or abroad etc
