Author Topic: Another reason to use a dedicated punting phone/sim...  (Read 1500 times)

Explain to me how the £600 phone makes better calls, do you get through quicker, are the calls clearer.   :unknown: :unknown:

Well elcheapo phone uses likely 2G. Decent phone 3G

The traditional (old) 2G phones used the Full rate (FR) and then Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) codecs. While they were good enough, later on the newer phones started using Adaptive Multi-Rate (AMR) codecs. 3G used AMR codecs by default. This results in better voice quality and clarity.

Plus 2G calls cost incredibly more than 3G. I get 3p per min with my 321 Pay as you go from Three. On 2G I think its something like 60p per min.

My advice would be to go and get a locked Grade B Blackberrry Curve from CEX for £25. Get the unlock code for it for 60p via ebay. And there you go (this is what I have done to get a second punting phone last week).

I use a Tesco sim and I think they are about 30p/min unfortunately and that's in an iPhone but they do triple credit - £10 gives you £30 but in comparision still not as cheap as you quoted.

That's quite an education into mobile history too, thanks  :drinks:

Thanks, but I don't need a punting phone ---------- I have no one to answer to.

My Nokia costs around £40 a year to run ------------- some people pay that a month on contract.    :hi:

Surely you mean a replacement punting phone, who would need 2 punting phones ?

My only worry would be my personal number is very widely spread over the Internet for business reasons, I'd hate a wg googling it and it got complicated, I prefer a phone I can use, turn off when I don't need, should I get calls back (not that this has ever happened) I can throw the sim away and start fresh, your right it doesn't have to be a £600 phone to arrange a shag hehe

On my 321 pay as you go I put £10 on in early April. And I just needed to top it up with another £10 last week.

If you get a Mifi (again second hand from CEX) and then put a free EE sim in there, you get 50mb per month data free with this and not need to give EE a penny so you can use this to save on mobile data costs with your Pay as you go sim.

The main difference is it will have greater reception capability (use more masts) and thus will have sometimes have a signal where your old Nokia will not, but as you don't venture far from London you probably wont notice the difference, but new phones do have better capabilities. and yes calls and texts etc will get through quicker due to the way networks prioritise  :hi:

Yes --------------- but I assume you have more than one phone, that would explain the very limited use.   :hi:

I have only failed to get a signal once, that was in deepest Somerset.     :hi:

No unfortunately, until last week when I got the second phone for punting use, that was for my main and only phone :(

I feel like a right Johnneynomates now.

Jimmy, as I pointed out above the differences in new phone technology and old, believe it or not phones are designed for the mass market not just for you  :dash:

Things move on Jimmy, after all even you've replaced your ZX spectrum with an I pad  :music:

The question is do you really need a smartphone for punting, if yes then take the precautions advised if your aren't already doing so. Personally my basic punting phone and pen and paper does me, low tech has its advantages for me.

No, An old phone will work fine, but you can't have Jimmy making stupid statements that old phones worth a fiver and new ones worth £600 are the same  :dash:

No phone is actually WORTH £600 -------------- i-phones are made in Chinese sweat shops.    :hi:

Yes well obviously they aren't the same, and for many people who have contracts they upgrade on a regular basis which suits them, the actual cost of the phone only becomes relevant if its nicked or broken and no insurance is taken out.

That's apart from for bragging purposes which some saddos do, they have an expensive phone and think that's some kind of achievement.

No phone is worth £600. And Iphones are the biggest rip offs in history.

But a £25 3G phone is a much better buy than a £10 2G phone.

In my opinion Blackberry Curves were one of the best phones ever made. So the fact that you can get one for £25 B Grade from CEX is a bargain. And they are very easy to unlock yourself too.

Most of the girls I know keep numbers of the guys they have seen. With notes. i.e. Good, OK, Wanker etc

One girl I saw had a category 'Drop everything you're doing' category for favourite clients. She didn't indicate whether I'd made it into that category or not.

I must be on that list to, just checked the theory after loads of whining on one of my reviews !   :sarcastic:

It is worse that that.      :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

On the EE website they offer an i-phone 6s for £49-99 upfront plus 24 months at £49-99.

That means over two years you will have paid them £1250.      :scare: :scare: :scare:

I'm with you JRC on this one, a punt consists of 2 calls and 1 text usually, the initial call, postcode texted over and an arrival call, that's it!!

If you follow that Logic, Black Cabs, UBER & rickshaws are all the same then, after all they all charge to drive you around London  :sarcastic:

I've never used a dedicated phone specifically for punting.... However as I used my normal phone where I have my Facebook account opened, I have had Facebook alerts for people who I've seen as escorts!!!
