Like many of you, I have been monitoring the deals for the HTC Desire, waiting for the right one to come along. I was going to go with BuyMobilePhones.net and called up T-Mobile to cancel my contract (I had three weeks left on an 18 month contract). I told them that I had seen a deal and would be leaving. The operator asked me what deal I had seen and he said the best they could offer was

HTC Desire Handset for £95
300 mins
300 texts
Unlimited Internet
£15 per month

I was very tempted by this and said I would call back shortly when I had made up my mind.

I called back within half an hour and spoke to a nice young girl. I informed her of the deal I had been offered, and when she read back the offer, this time the cost of the handset was only £20. I double checked and everything seemed in order so I bit her hand off.

HTC Desire Handset for £20
300 mins
300 texts
Unlimited Internet
£15 per month

Very happy chappy.

I know this will probably be for existing customers only but it definately looks like the best deal around on this amazing handset.

IMO the HTC Desire is the best phone on the market at the moment. The HTC Legend is similar, looks a lot nicer, but not as powerful and has a smaller screen. I chose this over the Iphone as well, although it doesn't have the AppStore, more and more Android apps are appearing on the market, and it was much cheaper than the Apple offering.

Up until recently BuyMobilePhones had

HTC Desire handset £89.99 (although this has now gone up to £119.99)
300 Mins
300 Txts
Unlimited Internet
£15
£25 Quidco

Initially they offered me the same deal but £5 more for the handset. Only when I called back the second time did they offer it to me for £20 which was a big saving.

May be worth noteing t-mobile do not have this in stock at this time,
be prepared to wait, I ordered 2 over a week ago and still waiting:x
#7
Absolutely fantastic deal, Heat added!
So far T Mobile customer service has been excellent.
#8
That's a good deal, T-Mobile have just put up the price of the Desire on their website. Last week it was £164 for handset then £15 a month for 18 months with 100 min/txt. It's now £226 for the handset.

My contract expires on 18th May, though the local T-Mobile shop said I can get a new contract for next Monday. I was going to look around, but if I can get a deal like this, I'll stay :)

Of course it all depends if T-Mobile actually have stock. There are a few people on their forums saying they ordered on 23td March and still don't have a handset.

I must have been lucky. The operator i spoke to did say that whenever they get these in they go out of stock very quickly. Worth waiting for mind. I liked the title someone else used - the Iphone Killer!
#10
Lazy journalism gives you stupid sensationalist headlines like iPhone Killer (Daily Mail springs to mind). It's a very good alternative to iPhone prices and tariffs, and it's choice that we want. IPhone is a good product, it brought smartphones to the masses and you don't need to be tech savvy to use one.... but it's not for me.

I wonder if they allocate a number of these deals per day and the OP just got lucky. I tried calling 150 and it says they can offer me an upgrade from May 19th which sort of makes sense as I took out an 18 month contract on 18th December 2008. So I'll need to be more patient.
#11
Do you know who you spoke to?
#12
Oh and did you get the free booster too?
Cheers
#13
I rang them up and it was £191.50 for the handset on that tariff :(

Sorry unfortunately not. I went through to the cancelations dept in merthyr tydfil if that helps.

I thought the free booster was the unlimited internet? A booster on top really would be a bargain!

Thats ridiculous. I know each operator is different, but that is substantially more.

True, i had it last week and i was debating whether not to post it. Why post now? Why not, its a deal i picked up less than a week ago and if someone else thinks its a good deal and they manage to get it as well then good for them. Isnt that what this community is about?

this is specific to one person and 24 month contract .It may be the htc but 24 month contract cold for me.

I agree, and 24 months usually put me off as well, however the overall cost of the contract is cheaper than most 18 month contracts. So effectively getting 6 months for free. I dont know what the next few years will be like in the mobile market, but im pretty hopeful that the Desire will stand strong for a good while yet as well. Do you not think that the overall cost would make this a good deal. What Desire deal would you say is better?

Forgot to mention that the cheapest ive seen the handset for is £355ish, so for £25 your getting two years of service including unlimited internet which is a must for this device.
#22
All the prices have now gone up and they have dropped the £10 tariff. I had the retentions Team call me from Vodafone and they are having problems with supply of the handset and therefore were not offering anything less than £30 monthly tariff with it!
Great deals if you can get, but I cant!
#23
Just done a retention deal with Orange for 800 mins, unltd texts,unltd internet (500mb) free phone for just £22.50 a month for the HTC desire, well well pleased. I know this is most likely just for me and it is a retentions deal.

I logged onto my account to update my details and it didn't quite look rigjt. So I called customer services and long story short, I've actually got unlimited text messages as well. Result!

just a heads up guys, a retention deal is quite specific to the customer phoning up. It means if you phone up you may not get the same deal. The agent on the phone actually has their hands tied, the computer decides what value deal you will get. If you spend a lot on the phone, you will get a good deal. If you have a cheap plan, never go outside your mins, you will not 'unlock' the better deals.

This is not unique to t-mobile, this is common practice across the networks. They employ a system that looks at your spend across your contract, determine your value and then the offers are based on that. Most companies know how much you are worth before the agent even answers the call.

Therefore the posting of *good* retention offers will only be valid to a limited number of people. However its not much different than a tesco offer in one town offer deal!!!

I just read this on one of the websites earlier during the day and Android app store have touched nearly 50K apps (with almost 60% of them free).

good enough deal.
The HTC Desire is the best phone currently available in the UK according to various phone/gadget/specialist reviews, i have ordered one through vodafone, £30 pm deal, with 150 quid Quidco. Their retentions offered me the same deal £25pm and extra fiver off for 6 months. But preferred the lumpsum payment as it falls just in time for my summer hols.
#28
Hot deal!!!
But i canot remember when my contract ends. When i log in the t-mobile website, it says i can upgrade in July.

That's most likely when it ends then. Mine is an 18 month contract with T-Mobile, and it ends in July. Logging into the site, I get told I can upgrade in July.

text "up" to 150 for free.

It tells you when you can upgrade.
#31
Sorry but how can this be a hot deal for anyone other than the OP? I personally think retention deals shouldn't be allowed on here, they are often just one person getting very lucky.

What didn't look right, was the unlimited internet booster ticked?

silly question... do they ever offer contract 'retention' deals to PAYG customers who call for a PAC, citing some deal or other on a contract elsewhere?

I did this when I told them I'm moving to ASDA mobile after 5 years of using T-Mobile's PAYG's services but they didn't try to hold on, within 5 minutes I got my PAC.

Very good reviews on this device. luckily I work for T-Mobile and they do a MY Phone scheme so will be getting it free next month :) Shame we peed off Apple that’s why they never gave us the IPhone !!
But T-mobile and Orange are one now so hopefully soon we'll start selling the IPhone and not getting them for business upgrades/retentions back hands from chitterchatter !!

Doesn't it give people who arre coming near the end of their contract an idea of how low T Mobile will go, in an attempt to to hold onto your business?
#39
The confusion about the booster: Tmobile include a free internet booster with all Android phones on top of the regular free booster, so you can select free texts or whatever still. Likely the operator simply assumed OP wanted the free texts in the absence of instructions to the contrary.

In that case it's information and should be in the Misc.
