Right guys, to all those that missed out on the HTC Desire S 'deal' here is another one. Okay before you begin telling me that this isn't as cheap as the previous one I want to outline that I know this and understand that it is not quite as cheap. However, it is still a very good offer in my opinion and even arguably better as it is a 'usable' contract opposed to the very minimal one being offered by DAP over the last couple of days.

PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT THIS OFFER IS GOING TO REQUIRE A LITTLE MORE EFFORT THAN THE LAST BUT AS LONG AS REDEMPTION AND QUIDCO GO TO PLAN (FINGERS CROSSED) YOU COULD BE IN FOR A GOOD DEAL.

Okay so the deal is by http://www.mobiles.co.uk and as we already know they are a trusted seller. The 'Go to deal link' should work and take you to the deal page where this offer is the FOURTH deal down.

So this is how this deal works out:

Brannd new phone - HTC Desire S
Free delivery
200 X-net minutes
Unlimited text messages
250mb of data

Okay and now for the maths:

Phone = £0
Contract: £20 x 24 months = £480
7 months free by redemption = -£140
Possible quidco = £50

Okay so, £480-£140-£50 = £290 for the entire £24 months

£290 / 24 months = £12.08 p/m

Specs from the phone are taken from the last post and thanks to the OP for posting them before hand.

Right guys, I hope this helps some people out. I havent actually ordered this myself yet as I'm still toying with my options. I'm actually a seasoned iPhone user (long before the days of it being a fashion accessory hahaha) and am looking at possible options but this does look good.

Peace

Dial A Phone doing 9 months free redemption on a 24 Month contract for 100 mins, 500 texts and 500MB for £21.50/month on O2. Overall cost £322.56, less £50 for Quidco comes to £272.56. But that's the same price that was being offered for the much better (and more expensive) Galaxy SII.

But even then we're paying between £70 to £120 more than yesterday, and the fact that the contract is better is a moot point for those already with many months left - and I personally don't think the deal is great for them, especially since a similar deal might pop up over the coming months (for perhaps even a better phone).
