I have an iPhone on the 3 network and an iPad on Telstra. I spend a lot of time travelling to Sydney and Melbourne by bus and train to see grandchildren (off to Sydney for thee days in a week and to melbourne for two weeks at the end of the month). I find the 3 network very patchy and spend a lot of time roaming and strangely the need to reset the iPhone network settings for time to time but that might be the iPhones fault. It's patchy in suburbs and poor when travelling. Understandably Telstra is much better as I can usually get a connection on the highway but not so good on the rail line between towns.
