The 1GB internet won't be 1GB for long....
#2
Now 500MB but no extra charges if you go over the 500MB
#3
good deal, will get something like this when my contract is up in september.... too long away that is :/
#4
Good deal IMO but have just had my order declined for not meeting T-Mobile's status criteria!

I know I have a cracking credit rating and have heard of similar issues with online applications like this.

Ah well ...

Good deal but a bit short on minutes.
#6
such a good phone and not a bad deal.

Two years is too long to have the same phone. I'm a light user, and after the 1st year any phone I've owned has started looking a little worse for wear. This is especially true for me since I've been using mainly touch screen phones for a long time. Pretty much since the first Windows Mobiles came out.

The screen responsiveness seems to degrade after the first year or so. I don't yet know if that will be the case with my current HTC Desire, but it was certainly true with the Touch HD it replaced.

That's a great deal though.... are DAP phones locked and branded?

[edit] I ask as I occassionally need to travel abroad and really don't fancy either roaming costs or having to use/buy a seperate phone. Also vendor branding just winds me up [/edit]

The Desire is STILL a great phone even after being out for a year.. problem is in another year I don't think it will still be such a great phone so in two years you will be tearing your hair out in my opinion.

Yeah but if you just think about it as £320 for the phone and up to 2 years of usage, then if there's something great in 14 months time either pay out the contract or just cut up the sim and give them notice to terminate at the end of the contract and wait it out. Still probably cheaper than buying PAYG isn't it?

I have had the HTC Hero for 12 months now and it is running very slow now and I see your point. HTC are not very good with update to because I had to wait over 6 months for the 2.1 Eclair, as from the date they said that it would be available.

I also have the 3gb data allowance and was wondering if that package will go down to?

I have the Desire since May, it's fantastic but 2 issues that HTC need to overcome are; Battery life. I have to charge it every day even though I do do a lot of WiFi during the evenings on it. Secondly, the internal memory needs to be sorted. You can't move a lot of the large apps to the SD card even on Froyo 2.2 so you're left with the niggling running out of space reminder. Overall though, by far the best phone I have ever had. Everyone I meet who uses it says it's just unbelievable and the screen is great for watching videos.

can you upgrade it to android 2.2?

I could have written exactly the same ... except the issue with moving the apps is the fault of the app developer, not the OS. The developer has to write a version that can be installed / moved to the SD card and it's a pain when this is ignored.

I've had my Desire since April (although this is my 2nd as the first kept over-heating and rebooting when using GPS) and it is a truly great phone for the price, especially as mine only costs me £12 a month! However, I reckon by the end of 2011 I'll be looking for a new, unlocked / unbranded Android, simply because 2 years is too long to have a phone!

On the subject of the Wildfire, I bought my wife one for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. As the HTC advert used to say, it's the last thing she looks at at night and first thing she she looks at in the morning. It's amazing the amount of tech they've shoe-horned into such a small space!

That's not really the case with newer capacitive screens with toughened glass. In addition with Android you get the software updates (eventually!) so its like having a new phone every year or so.
After almost 2 years my Hero was quicker then when I got it and the screen was still perfect despite very heavy use. I only replaced it because Vodafone gave me a Galaxy S otherwise I'd still be happily using it!

The issues with battery life and internal memory can be sorted with rooting the phone, similar to jailbreaking an iphone. Rooting the phone let you use a different rom which uses less battery power and also a different kind of app save to SD card to free up more internal memory.



check the list of roms here, i recommend Leedroid for most people to start off with

Can T-Mobile cut the data allowance if it is in contract.

Received this yesterday, just remember to cancel insurance and gadget care.

Cheaper than buying sim free more or less, and if you wanted upgrade after 12 months just sell it or recycle it you can get £186.40 by recycling it at the moment so you wouldn't really lose out.

Runs 2.2 out of box as well.

Yes. It's in the contract that they're allowed to make changes if they give a suitable amount of notice.

I'm holding judgement on long term reliability until my Desire gets to be a year old. I've been rooted since I got it more or less and am currently running a Desire HD rom which is pretty good. So I don't have any problems getting the latest and greatest OS. Am considering having a play with some of the GingerBread ROMs out there, but not convinced they're stable enough yet.

100min contracts can be had for 99p

In essence you are paying £340 for the phone

As good as it is, it is an outgoing model and been bettered

Worth no more than £200

Voting cold!

You're right, but they haven't given many people (including me) any notice at all. First thing I knew about it was reading it online yesterday. I went with them so I could get the 3GB of data per month, compared to the other major companies that were only offering 500MB at the time. It's out of order IMO. Companies shouldn't be able to use the term "unlimited" if it has limits, and they shouldn't be allowed to change your contract part way through without decent notice and giving you the opportunity to cancel if the contract changes will affect you financially.

Please point me to the direction of 99p/month contract with data allowance... Thanks! I'm seriously considering getting this one ...

Wouldn't it be better to buy this on payg then get a sim only deal to get a better tariff??

A Desire costs about £300 unlocked. You'd have to get a SIM only deal that costs less than £18 over 2 years in order to better this deal. Even the 99p deals mentioned above (if one even exists!) would cost more than that.

I don't see how the guy above can say that this deal is worth no more than £200 when a brand new Desire would cost you £300, and that's with no data/minutes/texts.

Why, is the Desire going to get worse with time? If it's a great phone now it will still be a great phone 2 years down the line, just that others will have moved on a little (I can't honestly imagine though what more you could want from a phone). And don't forget all HTC's have a 2 year warranty.
#35
2 year contract for 100 minutes and 100 texts?? How is that a good deal?
#36
this seems to be the cheapest overall cost with no charge for the phone - just bought one. as for the internet i called t-mobile they told me that all data plans with the HTC desire are unlimited because android is continuously using the internet.

No it isn't. Only when you allow it to be connected.

Why nice new phone? Even if conditions allowed you to cancel, surely you would have to return the phone?
