HTC Desire on Virgin Mobile

Hi, I have HTC HD2 on contract with Virgin mobile for the last two months. My landline, tv and broadband is with Virgin network for the last 5 years.

I am after HTC desire on contract but its too pricey at the minute. I want to phone virgin for it and would appreciate any comments how to bargain for the lower monthly price please.
They are doing it for £25 a month for 24 months and you get 600 minutes, 3000 texts & unlimited internet.
Another deal is £30 a month for 18 months and included 600 minutes, 3000 texts and unlimited internet. Handset is free on both deals,

Idealy i would want to pay £10 less a month on any of the above mentioned contract if possible or £5 a month discount will still do.

Do you mean you're in the first 2 months of a contract with the HD2 or the last ?

You'll always get a better deal when you're out of contract as you can threaten to leave, you can't do that if you're 2 months from the end.
I'd have thought you could have got somewhere close to £20 a months that would cover the cost of the phone. Just depends on what your spends been like over the last 6 months or so. If you've gone over your monthly min/text ect.

general rule, don't talk to upgrades, just tell them you want to leave, which will get you to retentions who have the better offers. Just keep saying, 'is that the best you can do?' and see what they come up with.
Just remember they have limits, the cost of the phone has to be covered by the contract.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply.My htc hd2 contract has just recently started and its been only 2 months since I had that phone. so I am nowhere near the end of contract. I am looking to buy an extra contract just for htc desire. The sim I can pass on to my family member. So around 600 minutes 1000 texts and unlimited web would do for me.

I doubt you'll get anything over a straight new customer deal. You've no leverage, you can't threaten to leave with your other contract. So they've no pressure to give you a better deal.

Good luck anyway. . .

You were right, the best they could offer me is already available on their website for existing customers and I have mentioned in my first post. I am not happy, I have been waiting for a good deal on desire for the last one month but nothing has come up that could interest me.

I think I'll just have to wait and see. Thanks for your help guys.
