If this is only a 6 months contract then i say its a good deal for the Min's you are getting. But till its been confirmed i will wait till voting hot because so many deals get voted hot when they are not even available people need to check this out first.

[Mr] Hi I am looking at the skypephone. It says something about the mix and match 300 6 months minum term. Does it mean I can end contract after 6 months?
[Kailash] Hello
[Kailash] Yes that's right this is a fantastic offer which allows you to take out an 18 month contract and we will allow you to cancel the contract after just 6 months if you wish. This offer is available on two great handsets, The LG U300 and the Skype handset. Both of the handsets are free. This can be used with the Mix and Match 300 and Mix and Match 500 tariffs.
[Kailash] Are you planning to place an order today for this offer, As we do have one more promotional offer as well
[Mr ] Yes I am really interested.
[Kailash] That's really great
[Kailash] Since you've come directly online to order the phone, I can give you a promotional code for a Free accessories voucher worth £20.00 (Exclusive online offer) …. Would you like to have the code?
[Mr Foster] Yes that would be nice
[Kailash] The promotional code is HS17030803
[Kailash] Now that I have given you the promotional code for the FREE Accessories Voucher, I want to advise you how it works.
[Kailash] You must enter the code on the promotional box which is in the Basket Page and press 'update' and then will need to select ‘Checkout’.
[] Also will I get an extra 2000 minutes for free, is that right?That's to 3 customers isn't it?
[Kailash] That's only if you purchase two contracts at the same time only then you get 2000 free 3 to 3 calling mins..
[Kailash] However on the Mix and Match plans you get lots of benefits
[Kailash] First of all the Mix and Match plans will be a combination of Mins and Texts as what you like to have
[Mr ] Can you tell me a bit more on the mix 500?
[Kailash] For example with the Mix and Match 500 Plan you can use it as 400 Mins 100 Texts or 400 Texts 100 Mins or 250 Mins 250 Texts any combination that you like. Where 1 Min = 1 Text...
[Kailash] As well as this great value, we also give you free voicemail + 300 free 3 to 3 anytime minutes + free instant messaging on Windows Live or Yahoo Messenger + free Ebay, and free Skype calls.
(These services will work on compatible mobiles, with or without an internet add-on.)
[Mr r] Will I still be able to cancel after 6 months no strings?
[Kailash] And with the Skype Phone you get free voicemail + 300 free 3 to 3 anytime minutes + free instant messaging on Windows Live+ free Ebay, and free Skype calls.
[Kailash] And yes you can cancell it after 6 Months anytime
[Mr r] Wonderful I am impressed. I am going for it. Probably a black one. Thanks so much for your help really appreciated!
[Kailash] Your welcome
[Kailash] Would you like me to assist you in placing the order online?
[Kailash] Just In case if you need any help

Just had the exact same chat - half an hour back.

Although the website has the 6 month banner - it shows an 18 month contract - their sales guy (different from above) confirmed

Not typing from a script by any chance?

I thought I will get this as a cheap way of getting the £7.50 mobile broadband offer.

I was hoping to get Quidco £47.50 for the mix nad match 500 tariff + £30 refer a friend. Taking this to £18*6 = £108 minus £77.50 so £30.50 for the six months.

However, it looks like Quidco is £20 for Skypephone as above.

At least I got a code from the chat for £20 of accessories.

Just waiting to see if the mobile broadband offer will still be open in two or three days time.
#5
Possibly a stupid question, but do you get a mobile number with these, or can you get a 'landline' number (eg 0141)?
#6
you didn't ask if there was a penalty for cancelling after 6 months... you never know :D
suspended#7
So how do you have to cancel ? in the 6th month or give 30 days notice is there a penalty for cancelling. Seems funny that you have to sign up for 18 months what about if you want to cancel in 7 or 8 months can you still do this.
#8
Has anyones quidco tracked yet?

Please advise
#9
Are you guys sure there is no cancellation fee

"but you still wish to end
your agreement for the supply of 3 Services during the Minimum Term of your
agreement for the supply of 3 Services, you must pay us all the Charges you owe,
plus any Cancellation Fee for your Price Plan (as set out in the Price Guide) – see
section 10 of the Terms for 3 Services for details;"

The above is from the right of return pdf file....could someone confirm this. I have ordered the mobile and will double check tomorrow but can someone else check too??

Am I right in thinking that you can only use this in the Uk or somewhere there is a 3 signal?
#12
In the UK or where there are partner "3" networks currently Austria, Italy, Ireland and Thailand (?) no roaming charges.

You all know there's also a monthly 1Gb of mobile data use included don't you? Assuming you can use the phone as a modem for your notebook - with Windows you can cable, with a Mac you can connect via Bluetooth

Yeah quidco tracked, but I think UI should be more concerned about RAF as in T&C it says only available for 18 months contracts!

Can you do that just with the skype phone or will it also work with the LG U300. I ordered the U300 as was not too sure about the skypephone. Which is better?
#16
Has anyone found a way to do this online?
when you follow the links, it says available on 6 month contracts, but there's no option to select 6 months, only 18 months.

Went through Quidco and RAF so hopefully, 6 months with 500 mins with new LG U300 will cost me £30:w00t: Will be able to sell the phone for that price hopefully so got the minutes for free.

6 month contract! Confirmed it with 3 online CS support. Saved the chat log.

o just noticed they were doing it on that phone as well. soz.
#26
duplicate post, but regardless a great deal.

I also have signed up for this, got 20 pound tracked on quidco, 20 pound accessories voucher, and entered all the RAF details so hopefully that will come though and my girlfriend and I will each get 30 quid credit each!

I called Customer services once I received the phone and they confirmed that its a 18 month contract with a minimum term of 6 months, and that I will not be charged if I call back in 6 months and want to terminate the contract.

If you are unsure about anyones explanations call up the sales team yourself (dont buy on the phone though, you can save a bit on the net) it wont take long.

As I said on the other thread, dont expect much of the phone at this price, its basic and the battery life sucks - however the price and skype functionallity easily outweigh all that
#27
What accessory voucher? MY RAF didn't work.
#28
I went for the 6 month contract skype phone just before the offer expired (31/3) Could not use the chat faciliiy, which was down at the time. The phone is due to arrive 2/2 so will see what its like. I could not use the RAF though.

I had a 3 phone about 5 years ago, I just hope the reception has improved :roll:
#29
you can get a code for a 20 quid accessory voucher by either;

- chatting with the online help, they gave me a voucher (and others that i have seen) very quickly and without asking.

- deliberatly canceling your application half way through. Once you have passed the form on which you enter your email address, leave the website. You will get an email shortly encouraging you to complete the order and containing a promotional code for the voucher. I have done this twice :)

What problems are people having with RAF?? You need to start your application from a specific spot to have the RAF feild show during the application, I can did it up if needed although it is lited in the other thread.
#30
My mistake on the £20 accessories - I did read it then forgot. However the RAF I didn't realise was from a specific page.

This offer is over now isn't it? It said valid to 31.1 when I went through checkout. No point in cancelling and then applying again to get the RAF and accessories? I'll cancel after 6 months and use the phone for my existing 3 contract.

#32
Question here why is RAF not working? as when you go through do you not just type the m8s number in on Recommend a Friend Number. and then wont it work?
will doing this get rid of the chance of quidco as well?

would love an answer if anyone knows? cheers

I don't suppose you still have your chat log do you? Three are insisting this is an 18 month contract and denying the 6 month minimum when I try to cancel. I have screen shots taken at the time showing the term but they're denying it.
