Default UK Sim only plans/decent offers....

Im after selling my iphone 3g and buying this phone sim free and using a sim only plan/pay as you go smart phone plan....

anyone seen any good deals on a decent network? im looking for unlimited txts and as much net time as possible, dont care about minutes...who uses the phone part these days eh! :P

i know tmobile do a basic 10 +5 per perk which could be internet or unlimited txts but i dont know how good the network actually is....

also tesco mobile seem to be a dirt cheap one too and thats meant to be based on the o2 network?

im quite interested in knowing what vodaphone/orange are like as a 3g/HSDPA house is just outside the 3g range on o2 but seems to be well in range for orange/vodaphone according to the coverage "maps"

thanks in advance.

3 PAYG has a data add on for 5 which gives you 1GB downloads in a month. Personally speaking I havent had any issues however much I download.
(current devices in bold)
MDA Vario III --> Touch Pro --> Touch HD -->Touch pro 2 --> HTC HD2 --> Galaxy SII --> Galaxy Note
XDA Exec --> AMEO --> OQO model 2 --> Viliv S5 HSDPA
Nokia N70 --> Nokia N95--> Samsung i8910
I-mate 8502 --> Orange San Fransisco --> Orange Monte Carlo

according to the 3 coverage map i may struggle to get a signal indoors.... lol.

orange seems by far the best coverage for me, all excellent coverage for 3g. of course it depends how you interpret these maps...

while on the subject does anyone else think the new 500mb download limits for the majority of UK networks is simply horrible? over 30 days thats around 16-17mb per day.......even browsing and viewing a few videos on youtube might be touching around that.....
