OK, so this isn't going to appeal to many (if any?)
But it's been quite warm today so could do with a cool down ;-)

Been toying with the idea of actually spending some money and getting one of these phones, but haven't done thus far, or wouldn't be mentioning this.

It's via redemption so it's going to upset 50% of the readers of this before they've got any further, but I thought it was a good-ish deal?

24 month contract (Yawn), but with 17 months FREE by redemption.
It's with Mobiles.co.uk who I've not had a problem with personally regarding cashback.
(Just finished one 12 monther and half way through my second and considering my 3rd contract which is how come I ended up looking at this in the first place.)

It's a steep £55 a month which is a staggering £1320 over term!
Assuming the cashback goes ok and pays out as and when claimed, all £935 of it, then you're left with an overall contract cost of £385 or £16.04 a month.
(Shame you can't just get it for the £16.04 to start with)

There is of course another £50-ish if you happened to go through TCB or Quidco, but can't include that so am just mentioning it.

I think it's too much to risk as a monthly outlay, but if you talk a lot, an awful lot and are paying this sort of money out already then perhaps it's not a bad deal?
Think it's pretty silly to offer this phone, well any smart phone, without the interweb in some way, shape or form, but that's just me.

Like I said at the beginning, won't appeal to many but was the cheapest way of owning a desire I could find, if you really want one and don't mind the risk of cashback redemptions?

No doubt I'll be able to keep my lollies cool/frozen on the back of this one, thanks :-)

I think you may need to change that comment, as it is 3000 minutes - there is a typo on the summary page that says 1200 minutes, but it is called 'your plan 3000' and when you add it to the basket it confirms the 3000 minutes...

Ive added it to my basket, yet when i go to my basket, it appears to be empty. Doesnt exactly fill you with confidence. What other details of this deal may be a "typo"? :whistling:

hot and worth the risk but only for the organised and persistent big talkers
#7
at 55 quid a month its pretty stupid.
#8
Was going to vote cold due to £55 a month - but the redemption makes it...........interesting. Not for me, but I will vote hot. The real question is, what are they like with crediting redemptions, and are they likely to be around for the duration of the contract?

How right you were.

mobiles.co.uk is quite good, I've had 1 completed contract with them and all cashback were claimed with no problem at all. Just started my 2nd contract with them.

Im on a £75 a month contract, so ofcourse im likely to be interested.

But ur link isnt working for me any longer and i cant see the plan when i go to the website directly either. I think there was definately a mistake somewhere, whether it was with the 3000 minutes or the price plans name, but they seem to have revoked it now anyhow. Lets hope they atleast honour it for those that took the plunge before it came to their attention.

Clicking on this link will put it into your basket/cart:

https://securesite.mobiles.co.uk/Cart.aspx?tid=1527&spid=91636572

If that link doesn't work for you, try a different browser (although I'm sure you've done so already).

So it does :thumbsup:
My link still works for me?
You have to click on the 24 month option on the page it takes you to, but it's the last one on the list.
Says 1200 minutes in the description, but then states 3000 minutes when you put it in your basket, which I've just managed to do again.

Sorry it's not working for some, but still think it's about the cheapest way of buying a Desire if all the cashbacks work as they should.
