You get a snazzy new mobile thats great for Internet, email, etc and has a camera etc. It comes with 50 minutes talk time and 50 free texts per month and 10Mb monthly download allowance for when away from an access point. Think BT uses the Vodaphone network and the phone runs on Windows Mobile 6, mine was delivered very quickly!

Whilst within reach of your BT HomeHub you can download and browse to your hearts content for nowt, including "free" calls over BT Talk. In any BT Openzone you have 500 minutes access per month, and soon (if not already) free access via any BT FON point.

do you use it much? saw the employee offer but didn't bother
didnt look too hard at the specs but doesn't this use Voda mobile network (when not on BB) and hence doesnt have 3g speeds for browsing

I've also been on option 3 for a while,they keep ringing offering discounts for a new 12 month contract,let me know if you get a good deal on this phone and i'll give it a try too...

depends - some of us work for Operate ;-)
#10
Hi got this the day it came out,( openreach fibre jointer ) it's ok very handy for picking up email etc
the battery is not great. they are bringing out a new handset that is meant to be much better but they have no firm date as yet. I am running my Iphone on the sim card and the handset is in the drawer.:thumbsup:
#11
I stand to be corrected here by anyone who has actually got one of these phones, (which are actually a rebadged HTC 5620), that the operating system is Windows Mobile 5, rather than Mobile 6.

This was also confirmed to me by a BT Customer Services advisor... and is also on their website.

EDIT: As I see it, anyone who is already on Option 3 should be able to upgrade to this particular package for an additional £5 per month... not a bad deal for a Windows Smartphone... even if it isn't the latest and greatest model.

(Sorry... Just realised that is virtually what the OP said anyway!)

i will do, ill try end of the week or early next week. I just dont have time!!
#13
It is Windows Mobile 6, and integrates with the BT work e-mail very well as well as BT Internet e-mail. The web browsing is good. Only problem is that I have yet to find an 'open' wifi hotspot anywhere...

For a fiver a month its a no-brainer. I've not used any of my included minutes or texts in the last 3 months, so they just roll-over all the time. I use it purely as a 'blackberry' type gizmo.
#14
Yep, my phone says its Windows Mobile 6 and also comes with a spare longer life battery (with an only-slightly-larger back for the phone to cater for it) as wi-fi puts an extra drain on things. I guess the thing will be to turn off wi-fi when not using it (as with the PSP etc).

The 50 texts/minutes is about right for my casual usage and is about what i'm spending on PAYG anyway so for me it was a no brainer. Found it easy enough to get working across my main three email accounts (bt, work, and home).
#15
Presume it has BT software on it. Is it still compatible with GPS software?
#16
i have been a htc user for some time.

although im with orange i rate these hand sets i currntly use TYTN II. (WM6)
you can get foc if you stamp ur feet with orange disconections.

i would say however if you are looking to get one of these you are always better off getting the oem rather than the bt,o2, or orange varients as they tend to cripple some of the features and mess with the gui.

when i get a new hand set i have to spend hours removing rubbish and re installing standard HTC stuff (HTC home as a forinstance that was removed by orange and replaced by orange home ... rech.. splutterr...).

looks like a good deal, has it got gps?, will they be getting deepfish explorer?
#17
It hasn't got GPS, it's not a bad phone. I factory reset mine and removed all the BT cr*p on it, which drains battery life (even the update isn't over clever). The mobile IE browser is pants, Opera does a much better job at displaying full web pages. My wi-fi drops out on this quite alot. The GPRS is slow in todays terms, and 10mb is pawltry allowance (altough it's unlimited at present). It comes pre-installed with your BT email address and broadband talk (voip) set up. Mine has windows mobile 6 installed.

Yeah BT mobile is a virtual Vodafone network, the phone has no 3G capability so when out of range of a wi-fi hotspot browsing is rather slow.

Ok I have BT Business broadband as a legacy of when it was supplied as part of my work. Now they let us choose our broadband provider and they pay for it. I am on the top level BT Business Broadband option, however download speed and capacity are'nt super important, just reliability (I work from home and am oncall a lot). I pay more than £30 a month already, plus work cover my calls costs for the landline. Therefore cost isnt an issue.
However I am on a really really old BT Cellnet /Genie/O2 tarrif that is a tenner a month for 600 txts and 100 mins. Could I get this deal and put my SIM in the HTC (the ability to wirelessly surf away from a PC would be very handy for me, especially at home) and take the SIM from the HTC and put it in my wifes mobile so she can have the 50 free mins and 50 txts a month?
I also have satnav on a SD card with an external gps reciever that ran on Win2003, would the HTC like this?
How easy is it to reset the HTC back to factory and get all the BT junk off of it?
oh and one more thing could I squeeze a Vision box out of them also if I was changing over? I assume I could bring my BT connect email address with me also? Finally is their Broadband service reliable?

Sorry for loadsa questions!

Thats a software upgrade? I was thinking more of the S710 or whatever?
#26
Do you think these phones will come unlocked?
#27
Nope, they are locked to BT, and the only unlock I can find is £20. Not sure if a Voda sim will work though.
#28
Ok well Vodafone have to unlock phones by EU law nowadays, but as you say its 20 quid. The Sim will work fine in an unlocked fone tho, which is what I want it for.

btw when I rung them and asked about the Vision as part of this package box they said you are locked into it for 19 months, the first 6 months are free then its £6.50 a month afterwards. Not sure what you get for that 6.50 a month mind..
#29
Vision is subscription free, thats one if it's selling points

Not according to the guy I spoke to - he said it would have to be a 19 month contract to get the box free of charge. Ah did I not say it was to get the box FoC?
