this may be a useful alternative to Pay as you Go:

NOKIA 6303 classic for free on £8.49 per month 24-mo contract with £45 quidco

decent phone, available in silver and black. retails as Pay & Go for around £110 -120, sells well on ebay for approx £110-135. specs below.

contract is long at 24 months but then nice & cheap, cost over term is £203.76.
this buys you either 100 mins / 100 texts or 50 mins / 300 texts dependent on your preference. Voicemail is free.

quidco is £45 for contracts on CPW, and i believe CPW phones are generally unlocked.

Talkmobile is decent, I have been with them for over a year, C/S is fine. I think they use the Vodafone signal.

HERE THE MATHS: £204 total cost - £45 quidco - £119 ebay revenue = £40 for the whole 24 months, approximately £1.70 a month. Sure someone will still vote this cold!

Now the phone details in case you wish to keep yourself (works out £6.50 a month after quidco):

24 month contract - no thanks!
#3
Any reason why this is being voted cold? SIM-only deals for a tenner WITHOUT a phone only come with a hundred or so minutes. Voted hot, especially with the quidco
#4
No idea with the coldness. For light users, this is a deal. Hot.:thumbsup:
#5
these phones sell well on ebay, "completed listings" for new unlocked phones up to £135. as I said above - works out as £1 - £2 a month for the 24 month term if you only keep the SIM (you will need a handset without SIM-lock to do this, of course). I bet most people pay a lot more for PayG

this is obviously not a deal for everybody but may be a great option for the light phone user
#6
hot, very good deal and break down of costs. 24 month = no problem for something so cheap
#7
Good phone & good deal for any light user... Nice find
Hot from me :thumbsup:
#8
Too many variables involved in order to get the quoted deal price.
