T-Mobile or 3? UK carriers: Coverage, Plan, Wi-Fi calling and Skype.
I recently updated to 126.96.36.1992 and is now considering to downgrade the OS since I've switched Carrier.
One function Ive been wanting is Wi-Fi calling.
I have one Sim from T-Mobile and one from Three , both for UK use with Pay as you go.
Ive only tested T-Mobile for one week now and I find it a bit expensive, but I saw they had a 'better plan' now, anyways Three has a unlimited data plan, i think and they have Skype. But do they have Wi-Fi calling in their OS? I cant find that info anywhere...
Anyone with experience with both carriers regarding coverage, prices, wi-fi calling and skype?
haha I know, lots of questions.

Wifi calling is built-in as part of the of OS 7.1, however only Orange currently supports it.
With regards to coverage, Three is quite spotty with their network through my own experience but I do live out in the skirts, although I did occasionally run into problems while being in the city. Their unlimited data plan will cost your £15 per month then you have to think about BIS which will cost you another £5 a month, so you'd be paying £20 a month if you wanted the unlimited data plan too. This gives you 300 mins and 300 texts.
T-Mobile has a few deals going for BlackBerry where you can top up £10 a month and get free BBM, browsing and email but they also have a BlackBerry Booster where you can get 6 months BIS for £20.
Hope this helps
Thank you very much for the help!
For now Three works for me. As you mentioned, the coverage can be weak some places.
But overall its a good carrier for me so far.
Maybe I will try Orange next time, I really want that feature.
