Cracking phone which hopefully you already know all about. 11 months half price makes this contract a total of £375 over £18 months.

£30.30 from Topcashback (or £30 quidco) means this could come down to £345.

Sorry - have amended title.

Not Desire HD, Link goes to HTC Desire.

I think this is a great deal. I'm keen to get an Android phone. The Desire is perhaps the best one out there. And I reckon that for my needs (400-odd minutes a month) I can barely go cheaper with a San Francisco and a Sim card.

Why the quiet and the coldness?

I dont disagree with the principal but even working on £10 a month for airtime and unlimited internet, that would price this phone at around £165/195 (depending on TCB tracking) which is still pretty good. Clearly I'd prefer a 12 month contract, but no upfront costs for a top line phone means I'm not uphappy with an extra 6 months.

Yeah i just hate being tied in over 12 months but if everyone just accepts it ,, it is pretty much becoming the norm and it will only get worse like 36 months lol its gonna happen because most ppl in the uk just accept it = doormats

As much as i hate 18 month contracts (24 are just ridiculous in such a market), we are long past 12 month contracts these days - theres no way they'll be brought back, even if they did decide on it, they'd just up the price of the phone to cover the lost revenue, so instead of getting a free phone, you'd end up paying £200+ for a new one. At that point, its not really worth it, you'd be better off having cheap line rental for the extra 6 months.

Its not being a doormat, its simply accepting that the market has moved on from 10 years ago, these companies run a busniess and they subsidise their top phones quite handsomely most of the time. If you dont want a long contract, go with the PAYG route, buy the phone and get a cheap £5-10 monthly sim card, i'm betting it works out not that great of a deal in comparison (you'd pretty much be paying more over a short length, most people would rather pay less monthly, but over a longer period).

Like i say though, i dont agree with 24 month contracts and i would never buy one for so long, but 18 months is probably reasonable these days. For what its worth, im on an 18 month contract which is ending soon and ive hated for the past year or so, i quickly wanted a newer phone but was trapped into my contract, but thats just what happens, id love a 12 month one, but the main point for me is im not having to put up a large cash sum at the start.

great deal. might get the white desire on this plan.

Mine arrived yesterday (City Link couriers are a waste of space and delayed it by 2 days) but I am really liking this phone and had a nice result yesterday.

The "unlimited data" plan with this phone comes with a 1gb FUP but I called T-mobile and asked if I had the 3gb FUP limit that they give to Android customers. This 3gb limit is supposed to be for direct customers only but they will give them to any android customer if asked nicely as you can argue that their Ts & Cs are ambiguous and you wouldnt have bought it if you had known (I didnt need to do this as the guy just offered to put it on my account anyway).

personally, i don't mind contract length, because i've foregone the idea of contract + phone these days. sim only and sim free is the way to go, and if any suppliers out there want to offer me a 5/month contract with a thousand minutes and texts and unlimited data, i'll sign up for a decade, and pay in annual installments. mobile is just a service these days, not a phone.
