HTC Desire on Vodafone 12 month contract! Quite rare to find a good deal on these "short" contracts!

£45 per month with a free handset. For this you get 900 minutes and unlimited texts.

Mobiles.co.uk are offering 4 months line rental 1/2 price taking the total price from £540 to £450.

Go via quidco for an additional £50 cashback taking the total to £400 or £33 per month!

Edit - You can add internet for £5 per month, so making the total £460 or £38 a month. Personally I think this is still a good price for a 12 month contract. To buy the phone sim free from Amazon would cost £439. Every where else seems a similar price.

You aren’t supposed to include Quidco in the price and should also state in the title that it includes a Redemption.

Was in the description but edited the title.

As stated already, no internet allowance kills this deal almost immediately. Even if it does have wifi...

Sorry!

It's like buying a Zonda, and not being able to afford the petrol :p

If only they'd bundled this with a sensible tarriff! grrr when will they learn! :whistling:

Im confused! Even if you add the internet bundle on at £5 per month,It still makes it a good price for a 12 month contract @ £460

If you were to go for a 12 month deal with internet included your looking at £600 - So your saving £140 adding it seperate.

Plus it still works out cheaper then any 18 month contract with internet included.

Ah well, cant please everyone!

For YOU. Perhaps for others too. Perhaps my grandmother should come and vote cold all HTC deals because they are too complicated for her to work??

This deal is just fine for some people. I spend the vast majority of my time in wifi areas and, when I am somewhere else, chances are I have better things to do than to play with my phone! Contrary to common personal opinion, the world is not centred on any one posting either here or anywhere else!!

For £400 you are getting the HTC Desire, 900 minutes, unlimited texts, free internet and on the Vodafone network which is the best. Those fools who are voting this cold are... well fools. Just gone for this.

If you're going to use the sim card then this is a better deal. If you wanted that much allowance on the other deal the price would immediately go up by £300 (£25/month + £95 for the phone = £700 instead of £400).

I'm guessing people going for the £10/month deal are just getting it for the phone and will probably buy themselves out of the contract.

With this, at the end of 12 months you'll most likely get an upgrade offer with the newer phone in a year's time at the same price. With the other deal you'll be stuck with the same phone for 24 months otherwise (which considering the rapid rate of development of mobiles, especially Android and HTC devices, you wouldn't want in 2 years time).

Putting it simply: over 24 months:
This deal = 2 phones, 900 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £960
The other deal = 1 phone, 100 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £400
Upgraded other deal = 1 phone, 900 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £700

Over 12 months
(assuming you buy yourself out of the 24 month contract):
This deal: 1 phone, 900 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £480
The other deal: 1 phone, 100 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £400
The other deal upgraded: 1 phone, 900 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet for £700

No prices include Quidco or cashback via redemption
Having this over 24 months could actually give you discounted line rental when it's time to upgrade along with the new phone.

Heat added! Just ordered. I need the phone as I have sim-only (which includes data etc) and wife needs the sim from this deal for the mins & text. I think it's worked out o.k.
#15
Question - I would obviously need the data add-on (seems pointless to me having the phone without it) but the only deal available on the 12-month contract is the "Your Plan 900 + Mobile Internet (12 months)"

This is working out at £50 p/m (as there's no half-price line rental offer applied) meaning £600 for the life of the deal, not the £460 as shown above.

How can I get the:

12 month
900 minutes
Unlimited texts
Unlimited data

... for £460? Is the data bolt-on added later or something? Cheers.

If you go for the 900 mins and unlimited texts only and include cash-back/Quidco etc, it comes to £400. Then if you get the data plan added on afterwards for £5/month, it brings it to £460.

Only thing is I'm not sure whether adding stuff to your tariff nullifies cash-back.
#17
Any ideas when you can add the unlimited data plan?

Is it as simple as calling Vodafone as soon as the phone arrives and adding it before switching the phone on?

Seems like a great deal does this - I can essentially cover the entire cost of the contract by selling my now out-of-contract iPhone.

Right, I've just checked the T&Cs of the cashback. Doesn't look promising if you add a data add-on via Vodafone. Mobile.co.uk may refuse the cashback deal if:

* You do not remain on the original tariff with the original handset and number.

I can see them avoiding the £90 cashback making it less of a deal. I'm going with the £50 p/m deal with £50 Quidco. Brings it down to £550 for the length of the contract which isn't too bad for the amount of minutes/texts.

@ £439 for the phone (Amazon) you're paying £111 for the contract (£9.25 p/m).

I wouldn't do that if I was you. I think it's best to ask Mobiles.co.uk first about what is intended as this could save you some dosh!

I really think they mean if you down/upgrade your tariff but add ons? I don't think that would count, unless of course they mean changes full stop.

(Oh, also it's not £550 but £560 as you have to pay £10 for the handset. Not that £10 going to make much difference)
