Rep added for posting the total price (rather than just the monthly amount). This is much more useful.

Helps to compare it against the price of the payg equivalent + top-ups.

Some of those TMob deals are very good. With the booster, the deals are effectively unlimited texts, internet and choice of minutes. For the 18 month deal, that is about £490 for the term which is very good in my book.

24 months, eek...I do hate 2yr contracts considering the pace of handset releases at the moment.
#5
oops double post!
#6
I think I'll be taking this one. Cheap price overall. I was looking at 18 month contract but they are the same price so will take the extra 6 months basically free.

edit: £35 cashback available from http://www.topcashback.co.uk/tmobile/

Topcashback is £35 for t mobile at the moment.

Is this phone instock now, or is this a pre-order deal?

handtec are selling it for delivery from 5th April.

Seems a very good deal, I would be worried that in 2 years who knows what the state the mobile phone market will be in; faster phones could leave this in their dust (even though it is the fastest at the moment), Android may be onto its 3.0 or 4.0 in two years.

Its £20 cashback for £10 & £15 contracts. £35 for £20+ contracts.

I think what you are looking at might apply only to SIM only deals, it looks like all phone deals are £35
#13
Good deal! However please bare in mind that T-Mobile's coverage is shockingly bad in many areas.

Ah yes, Quidco are doing the plan I stated. Topcashback seems to be doing £35 for any contract. that'll be the way to go then :thumbsup:
#15
just ordered on £10/24m with unlimited internet and texts.... anyone who goes for the £35/24m and 'free' phone is a lunatic IMHO
#16
Which deal is that pr1?
#17
has anyone got an email back stating its out of stock?? Just wondering if T-mobile are saying this so that they can release on the official release date. Here's hoping as i dont want another phone, i want the desire..

its standard and the order should go through. It's showing on my bank account that £129 has gone anyway!
#19
yep cool, just spoke to T-mobile and they said its a stock release thing, they have the stock for my order coming in during the week ready for the official release.
#20
This is an insanely good deal. Even before I realised you get a booster on top of unlimited internet it was an amazing deal.
I have a Nexus One (almost identical phone) which cost me £450.62 unlocked. Cheapest 24 month deal I can get is £6.67 a month for the same as this minus the booster.
So that's £610.62 for a pretty similar deal.

Personally I'm not very happy about how good a deal this is, as this is going to see the resale value of my Nexus One plummet. I was considering dumping it for an iPhone come the next update as I miss some of the iPod features such as replay gain and smart playlists.
#21
Have ordered this, hopefully it will come before the other MPD would have arrived :)
#22
First time poster been lurking for months was nearly getting a hero in february but thankfully i couldnt upgrade at the time or else i would have missed out on this little beauty.

Im sorely tempted by this offer but what do others think its the same cost overall as the 18 month contract.

On the upside of the 24 month contract you in effect get the last 6 months for free. On the downside you are tied in for 24 months but are paying a mere £15 per month when considering at the moment I pay between £25 - £30 per month and thats without an internet addon seems pretty good to me saving on average a tenner a month.

Dont know about keeping the same handset for 24 months though have had my current samsung soul for 18 months and thats the longest i've ever had one saying that its lasted well and is in pretty good nick.

Do you think this phone will survive 24 months.

Any replies muchly appreciated :-D

Based on the build quality of my Nexus One - the Desire's (twin) sister-model - I'd say there's every reason to believe either model would survive two years. My greatest concern is cracking the screen, which is a consideration for all large-screened phones. Less so on this than the iPhone as far as I am aware, given that this has a plastic outer screen rather than glass. I just keep mine in the neoprene pouch it came with. It's extremely scratch resistant too.


Though seeing how the 18 and 24 month contracts are the same price overall, I see no reason not to choose 24 - you can choose whether to get a second contract after 18 months or take advantage of the free 6 months service. Not sure about the implications regarding keeping your number of course.

Click on the Deal button then select the £10pm price plan.

I have just got the handset for £124 on the £10 a month deal so sorry this isn't so hot unless you need/want the extra minutes. Talk to the people at T-mobile sales and get them to check the system as the offer is out there!

I guess it all depends where you are.

It all depends on how many minutes you want, I was tempted by the £10 deal but decided I needed the extra minutes. (that's why I posted this deal rather than the £10 deal)

And its worth noting they will give about £40 off of all these deals as that is currently what the cashback sites are giving out. I know my order tracked for £40 with topcashback.

So I think it all comes down to how many minutes you need, for which deal you pick. If you use more than 117 minutes the £15 deal is better, if you use less, the £10 deal is better.

Yeah no problem, If you need the extra minutes then you need them :)
#31
totally off topic but tmobile do the iphone for upgrade customers only and you have meet certain criteria! so anybody upgrading enquire about that they are supplied through chitter chatter and come form germany!
#32
:thumbsup:
It looks like other networks have fallen in love with this fine phone and will be launching it soon - I'm using the Nexus One which is essentially the same handset and operating system with different button layout and it's very very good!

I got £20 off the £15 24 month deal just by asking. Paid £109 for the phone.

HI the phone doesnt have to last you 24 months its yours so you can sell it when you want if the htc incredible floats your boat you could sell this and buy that sim free its yours to do what you want with


Hi, yeah very good point I wasnt thinking of that.

At the end of the day im currently on a
750mins xnetwork (only use about 300-400 max and some of thats land lines)
unlimited text (maybe use 300-400)

with no internet through 3 mobile and pay £25 - £30 per month so to be honest if the monthly bill is less and i have a cracking phone with internet i think im gonna go with that. even if it is a longer contract :-D

a few people have reported a £40 discount by telling them

Thanks for the info folks think I will phone them tomorrow and see what they say. At the end of the day if they dont match topcashback I can always just order online. To be honest though If they are round about the same I will go with the phone offer that way I dont have to faff about with topcashback

Thanks everyone

Just put in my order for the HTC Desire earlier this evening.

£35/month on an 18 month contract. 600 minutes, 500 texts, unlimited (fair use) internet and a free 'booster' pack so opted for the European extra minutes as I do keep finding myself in Europe each year either for business or for holidaying so I think it'd be useful! Thought that was a pretty reasonable tarrif and the phone was only £60 on that.

Only phone I've felt is worth jumping ship from the iPhone for.. I hope it lives up to my expectations!

as long as you aren't expecting copy and paste then you'll be happy :thumbsup:

I got a nexus one and had it for a week and sent it back as I couldn't live without the copy and paste which I use a lot, it is on there but very limited :-(

Screen input isn't nearly is good as the iphone either, found it quite cumbersome after the iphone.

So, I went back to the iphone instead, OK it's got a crap camera but all round it's still better for me.
#39
I ordered desire yesterday, lady told me that she will ring me on sunday to tell when it will be delivered. I paid 130 pounds for the phone and 10 pounds a month for 24 months, so the overall cost will be 370 pounds which is smashing!!!!!!!

This is the deal I was looking at, but with the unlimited texts as my booster. Good thing about the boosters is that you can change them month by month, so if you know you're going away, you can swap out the unlimited texts to the european extra minutes.

Cue responses on here telling you you're paying £690 for the phone, but what people don't seem to understand on here is that some of us do actually use our phones for calls, so 300 minutes just doesn't cut it, hence we need more call time and hence the monthly rental goes up. If I do go for this deal, I won't be getting it because I'm getting the phone cheap, it will because it's the best deal for the amount of minutes I use, for a quality phone.
