Considered by many to be the best phone on the market. Deal is for 18 months.

A nice price for those considering the HTC Desire. No immediate outlay and a decent mobile internet allowance. Networks seem to be cracking down so this might offer a decent allowance for those interested in utilising the internet whilst away from wifi hotspots.

Cashback allowance not factored into the deal. 6 months 1/2 price via redemption is available, knocking a further £90 of the total, bringing the total monthly cost down to £25. Quite a good offer for what is considered to be the best phone on the market with a healthy data allowance.

Anyone who goes over 500mb a month needs to start using their laptop/pc/mac for porn.

That's for you to decide depending upon your needs. I don't use the above mins and text per month, so it would fit my needs. I saw the Data Allowance as the attraction. No point in getting this phone if you're not going to utilise the features. :thumbsup:

Low cost of ownership for the lifetime of the contract, given the PAYG/Sim Free prices - worth bearing in mind the above allowance is typically at a cost of £50 over the lifetime of the contract if you adhere to the cashback via redemption conditions.

Do you not realise that with the increasing use of smartphone (Iphones etc), apps and phones will use much more data than present.

The phone companies are not stupid which is why they are now stopping unlimited data or chraging more for it.

Anyone with a free data plan should hold on to it for dear life!

Dial-a-phone are doing Desire on 18month 600 min unlimited text and 1gb data on 10 months half price so works out at £28.89pm. So might be worth the extra for many people.

They are also doing the same 100 min 500 texts but with 500mb data with 8 months half price that works out at £23.33.

is this on t-mobile? if so, once you get the phone you can try callup t-mobile and getting the data increased to 3gb(i've not done it myself but have read on a different forum of people getting it done).

you need to call cs and say that you have an android phone, from what I've read t-mobile do 3gb data for android phones at full speeds(unlike with the 1gb which has the speed limited). also this frees up the 'bolt-on' which you can change to one of your choice(e.g. unlim txt).

this all depends on the person you get as with most things, if they say they can't just hangup and try again.

Good options. I tried to keep my deal as simple as possible, highlighting the £30 max outlay with the 1gb data allowance. I think there are cold voters doing comparisons and not on a like for like basis. Still, that's how it goes :thumbsup:


If anyone can find the same deal cheaper, do let us know and get it up. I'm sure there would be a few interested members.

Yes as I have a Desire already. I use maps on a daily basis, download apps, stream TV etc and never touch 500mb. People who go over are just taking the p*ss and ruining it for the rest of us.

I tend to disagree slightly. If companies had marketed as unlimited, then they should have had the wisdom to plan an explosion of use. It's a little unfair to blame others for taking advantage of what was offered. Indeed now the networks to an extent have customers hooked into the new tariffs, some would suggest that it was the plan all along.

I agree with your sentiment about the term unlimited when it comes to a service that isn't. It still stands however that to go in excess of 500mb or 1gb of roaming data is extremely excessive. It is only the users that exceed that kind of data that trouble the network, the average Joe Bloggs will not. I even double checked with a friend who has spotify premium and he has used 1.2gb in 4 months, granted he doesn't use maps very often.

People who do use in excess of that data should have to pay more, normal users should not have to subsidise excessive users.

Swampy donkey:
What you say is wrong and is misinformatioj given out by the mobile companies. They say that a few percentage of users are using a disproporitnate amount of bandwith. Well if it is only a small proportion then why change it? The answer is because that as time goes on, phones will become more and more data hungry. Mark my words.

They see this as a money making thing, they arent trying to protect their customers, they are not that caring.

If capacaity is affecting other users then add space on the networks. They paid billions for the 3G licences now they need to make sure that people can use it.

I'm not disputing that, but why should 'regular' users have to subsidise high data users? Just set it at a few levels, under £500mb costs £x p/m, 500mb-1gb costs £y p/m etc etc. That way it remains fair for all. Just pay for what you use, as at this time the networks are not able to deal with true unlimited data packages.

Say if you were on a £30 p/m contract just add costs x or y to let you know how much it costs. Simples.
