A smart phone with only 250Mb of data :|

It's like buying a sports car with a 1 liter fuel tank

Ridiculous.

Given the FUP, it's like having a car that will do 70% of the frequent journeys most do at full speed, and then at greater distances its limited to 60 mph, but at no extra charge. You're ridiculous.

Ummmm.......I think the point is to get the PHONE for as cheap as possible while spreading the cost, and using another cheaper SIM with more allowance.


Wouldn't that be more expensive then just buying the phone sim free?

Isn't this deal on the same site but a bit further down the page better for those who want data ???

£29.99 for the phone, T Mobile Text Extra Internet. 100 mins, 1.5Gb Data, £26 a month, 24 months.
#11
am I missing the point? £600 for a phone? Love my sgs2 @ £25 pcm for a yr with loads of minutes but this? Surely getting to the point where a playbook/cheap droid is a better prospect.

Or if yopu want more mins - £19.99 for the phone, 300 mins and 750mb. Will see if O2 will match as retention deal. Not holding my breath. Seems Im moving to a different provider after 15 years...

That's totally stupid then.

Why not just pay a bit more and get a proper contract deal instead of píssing about?

Add a cheap sim with decent allowance and your total 2-yearly cost will come to £864 or thereabouts.

Really :p lol - neither the minutes nor the texts 'costs' the carriers much at all - there infrastructure is well publicized to be struggling with the data demands nowadays but if you'll really manage with 250mb then this phone isn't really for you.

I just think it's getting daft - apple have set the tone - everyone else wants a piece of that level of markup. Depending on what happens when launch hype dies down I may just go giff gaff with my s2 and treat myself to a 7" tab to tether to it.

£600 for a phone and shoddy contract for two yrs is a lot of money whether you can afford it or not.

I agree - and if you dont need it you go with PAYG phone. lol. This is effectively for a smartphone which is not just a phone. You can do so much with phones these days its effectively a computer!

£26 a month is not bad - find an iphone on that!

I too wonder about S3 deals on hotukdeals sometimes.. People rant about £450-500 iphone and then jump on to buy £600 phone and get giffgaff or other sim with plenty of data to go with.

better wait until the launch and get this phone in payg for sub 450 level OR with decent contract with at least 1gb data

lol, if that were the case, this deal really is cold as ice, given you can pick up the S3 sim free for under £500.

The £450 to £500 iphone you talk about is without a contract or sim. This is £620 with a sim and contract. So £120 for 2 years of calls and data and texts.

You didn't read what he said though - people mock the iphone costs, and then talk about deals like this as if they are a good way to get the S3 phone itself "cheap" but then stick another sim in it for better data and minutes. Meaning they would be paying at least £26x24 PLUS the cost of this other sim....

And he has a point. Or he would, if the iphone were comparable to these phones, in terms of spec. Which they aren't anymore....

Do you :D

I'll assume that was a question, despite the lack of a "?" ....

I do yes. There is a pretty disgusting version of me that has just woken up after 3 days on the razz with no memory of anything I've done.

And there is a nice looking version of me that hasn't.

Hope that clarifies ;)

what about those that get unlimited wifi (or a wifi allowance) on the move or can use wifi at home?

I also like HTC (due to their HD2 I had, until I bricked it). I would never buy a phone that I can't change the battery out of nor put some kind of sd card in. They're my two red lines.

I don't get the battery and removable storage thing, if i'm on a journey etc i use my portable charger. As for storage i generally have everything sorted online, 32GB in my mobile is more than enough. What do you store on your phone that uses that much space? Is it for alot of music? I generally don't listen to music on my phone so maybe that is why i don't see it as a problem.

Unfortunately its T Mobile - Frustratingly intermittent quality of internet. Also I have to pay a connection charge to speak to customer services when they make a mistake.

Wait for a decent network - T Mobile is terrible.

Couldn't have put it better myself. These are the only reasons I'm choosing the SG3 over the ONEX.

That would be a little silly admitedly as may as well go with a £30+ contract and not have hassle of 2 contracts to deal with.

It takes space to install lots of Apps. Also - rechargeable batteries die and arent covered by warrentee afaik.

I generally don't listen to music on my phone so maybe that is why i don't see it as a problem.

I'm often on journeys where it is not possible to plug in a portable charger, nor is it possible to get online with any reliability - on many of the planes and trains I travel on, and in the wilderness. I often travel abroad and so don't want to run up huge bills for roaming data. I find it much easier to swap out SD cards. So for me and my typical usage there are real advantages, especially the swappable battery/online data issue, but I can understand that other people will have different usage and therefore not feel restricted as I do. I did love Sense on my Windows HD2 and was a bit of a fan-boy about it to my peers, but would like to give the Samsung S3 (and Android) a go and feel that for me, the S3 could very well be the phone for me (although I do worry it may be too big, so would like to feel it in the plastic, so to speak (_;) )
