three currently have an offer on of £20 a month on their 1100 minutes package with certain phones i believe. SEE BELOW

£7.00 off offer available until 31st July when purchased with one of the following handsets: Nokia 6120 and 6288, Sony Ericsson K530i, K610i, K660i, K800i, W660i, Z610i and Z750i and 3 Skypephone only. £7.00 reduction will be applied to the customer's bill monthly for as long as the customer remains on the Mix & Match 1100 tariff.

my questiion is can anyone tell me which phone would get me the most on ebay as im not interested in the latest phone.

also can a three shop beat this deal as im aware there is quidco too. has anyone used the refer a friend and quidco????

can any other dealer eg e2save etc match/beat this deal with cashback??? your help is much appreciated guys.

I got the Nokia 6500 slide but is now giving me problems so i phoned up and they are willing to exchange it for a Nokia 6500 classic.

Says £20 per month on my screen, where you reading fella. Quidco is compensated by the free sat nav :roll:

three shops can't beat any deals..they cannot use the recommend a friend (due to abuse by staff i believe)or quidco. Remember to get the online £20 voucher buy asking online via chat.

sorry Marko, have come to this thread a bit late.
I've been with 3 for about 4/5 years now, good value, ok reception, awful customer services when it goes wrong, they're not very technical, and stuff is lost in translation.

Of what you have linked to, i do not (personally) like the Nokia Series 40 range the 6500 and the like, prefer summat a bit funkier.

As for the deal itself mind, if you're happy with it, and seems like you have done some of your own research, then go for it.

Think dial-a-phone and e2save are 2 of the better ones, but as always some folks would disagree.

Do you have/want to be with 3? Just re-read, said you're looking for best re-sale value. Not sure any of them will break the £100 barrier by too much

Good luck :)
#16
thanks for this yeh want to stick with three only because of the massive minutes which i will use!
#17
Ok, well just checked ebay, 6500 is barely breaking £100 sometimes not
What about the lesser phones with the PSP or DS lite options?
Might be able to sell them for a higher combined price?
Take it you only what a cashback deal and you realise the risks?
Are you with 3 now?

no ive been with vodafone got my full cashback via phones4u but need to be on three cause of minutes. yeh i realise the risks of cashback.

was thinking of getting the
Sony Ericsson W880i Black and the £220 cashback
#19
The deal @ (effective) 14.78/month, 18 months?
Ebay prices again vary, around £60 seems conservative
So, £220 cashback, £65 quidco and £45 Refer a Friend plus say £60 for the phone that's = £390
That'd leave you £27 @ 18 months = £486
Some £96 for the duration....seems fine :)

Can i have the refer a friend please if you need one?

or getting the sony ericsson c902 mobile with no cashback but selling the phone?

Can i have the refer a friend please if you need one?
#21
Edit, sorry, i see you've snook a new line into my quote :)
How much is that phone worth on ebay.....i'll have a quick look

The C902 is going for £180 or so, which is less than your cashback, but less of a gamble if you can sell and get rid asap
Phone values don't stay for long :-(
Mind, it would be £180 less paypal and ebay fees, plus the hassle of a sale.
Comes down to a gamble; ebay vs cashback
#22
or i can buy via three.co.uk

get £62 quidco and get that phone or is there one that would get me more money on ebay and the refer afriend on three

Highest value phone on 3 is the N95 8Gb but you're looking at £36/month for the 1100 mix and match you want and prices range from £180 to £310 so not worth the hassle i'd say

I think for what you want, ie trying to keep costs down, but with a bit of risk/reward 3 direct is not the best option
I think you're gonna have to go down the cashback route as we have already been down. Sorry

No sorry, don't know Marsden
Whereabouts is it?

its a small village near huddersfield u know in last of the summer wine country near slaithwaite??
#28
Can't say i've been :)
Right, how about this deal......
Now i know it is only 500 not 1100 mix and match but hear me out.
Quidco £32.50
Refer a friend (not sure it is available on this tariff) £30
Sell phone - Nokia 6120 - £50 or thereabouts on ebay

6 months x £18 = £108
All above comes to £32.50 + £30 + £40 (after fees etc) £102.50

Sorry, RAF is only £30 not £45 btw. Tis only £45 if you take mobile and broadband with 3
