While the handset itself is priced at £499.99 on Play.com, most other retailers have this listed around £30-50 cheaper. Still... it is indeed a very good offer, providing Quidco tracks and does indeed pay out. Always a gamble, so that should never be set in stone. Also, £40 a month for what you get is pretty dire though. You really are paying for the phone via the line rental... just in installments rather than up front.

After my contract expired, I didn't see any decent phones worth signing up for another 12-18 months so decided on a sim-only package of £20 a month for 600 mins, unlimited texts and unlimited internet. It would take a exceptional mobile to wean me from this at the moment... or until my mobile dies on me lol.

That being said... reviews seem to be mixed on this as there are some major downfalls with this mobile, especially with the camera and playback facilities. It doesn't even appear to be a "true" HD mobile either, and most consumers will be none the wiser until they end up purchasing one.

Although, we also don't need reminding it's a 12 month contract too, not an 18.

Not for me personally, but overall a good find, and a hot deal. Voted so.

I mate of mine got this phone on a 24 month contract (evil!), and I had a play around with it. Seems very responsive for a HTC, surprising really, as previous phones have been 'laggy' to say the least. Big bright screen, stick thin phone that's very light. It has it's ups and downs, but just a case of getting used to it, and end up loving it! I personally would recommend it, as it's quite a unique phone, and offers tons of uses.
The 12 month contract however, is much to be desired, but the network needs to make its money somewhere I suppose... so they charge for the phone, increase the value of the tariff and give you hardly any minutes in return.

Will suit some people. Heat added ;-)

A friend of mine had one of these HD2's and sent it back, The concept of the phone is great, but in real life its just a big bulky touchscreen that doesnt do multi touch in the OS just the browser and picture viewer.

He's used to an iPhone so it didnt quite cut it for him with regards to the Application store, touch screen and OS

HTC have made a great phone with the HD2 I think. I was considering getting one of these a couple of months ago. As I have a Samsung Omnia, I thought it best to upgrade to WM 6.5 and see what Microsoft have to offer as far as apps go. I must say I feel that a lot of developers have deserted Windows Mobile for Android and Apple. I think there was about 100 apps on the Microsoft store, which left me a bit disappointed. I know there are developers who make some good apps for WM, but usually require a lot of searching around, and reading of various forums to find out what they're called and where to get them.

I guess it's about what you want from a phone really.

I had the phone for two weeks, had to send it back. looks amazing, but in the end compared to the iphone i have this is floored.

#7
Very good phone, that pees over the iphone in my opinion. It's biggest downfall however is the amount of bugs it was released with.

There have been two official updates to patch these so far I believe, and most of the issues have now been addressed. Now to decide whether to switch from my Hero to this deal!
#8
£40 a month is very poor value.
#9
I had two HD2 from O2 and returned both. Very buggy phone although technically I did love it, it had too many issues. I would pass on this offer.

I got this phone just before Christmas on T-Mobile - 30ppm , 18months contract, 300 mins + 300 texts and unlimited internet.

Nothing much between the two contracts really but if like me you were throwing 25-30 quid a month on Pay as you Go (when I came out of last contract) , and still running out of mins then it's a no brainer for a top top phone.

Love the phone, yes it's got a few bugs but so what, it is after all Windoze PLUS it should be up to the job of Windows Mobile 7 when it launches so quiote future proof in that respect.

Touch screen typing isnt as bad as some make out, and that's coming from somebody with fat fingers!!

£40 a month is very poor value.

Didn't you read the deal ?
It's £40 a month for a £500 phone - the text/minutes/internet use are included for free. I fail to see how this is "poor value" !?
guv
HD2 is a greart phone.... but £40pm for 300 minutes is crap.

But you aren't paying £40 a month for 300 minutes :thinking:
You're paying £40 a month for 300 minutes + texts + internet + a £500 handset.

It's an excellent deal, and most certainly not "crap" !

Then buy one - they're currently £360 shipped to the UK from http://www.google.com/phone although you will have to pay VAT on top when the package arrives.
Once you've paid for 12 months of voice/text/internet use then you'll have spent significantly more than the total price of this deal.

Its an excellent deal on a 12 month contract, the phone itself is between £469-500
but instead you get to pay 40 a month much easier for a lot of people, and get usage included, 300 mins and unlimited texts and unlimited internet, got a better deal beat it???

The main focus of this deal is the 12 months, and a excellent phone which works out cheaper than a payg handset with usage included. :w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:

Could pay the contract up early and save VAT too.. makes the phone cheaper again

No, because if you do your research you will find that the US version does not do multi touch out of the box with the installed browser, you need Dolphin browser for that. In Europe it will do MT out of the box. It will be here in the UK soon enough, I can wait. I'm not even sure if I want one yet.

If I used an O2 sim only deal I fail to see how I would have spent more than this deal.

This deal £40 pm x 12 = £480
O2 simplicity £20 pm x 12 = £240 - £23.33 Quidco for a 12 month SIM Only = £216.67

Yes I would have the phone to pay for but I would rather pay for a phone outright and pay a much lower monthly amount and have proper minutes (800 O2 simplicity 12 months deal, 1,600 texts and unlimited web bolt on included) than pay a silly amount per month for a few measly minutes and not be able to call people as much as I do. I would also keep the Nexus for about 2 years anyway.

There are people who cant afford to pay for a phone upfront £400 but can afford to pay £40 a month. Your calculations are rubbish.
If you paid £216.67 for the sim only
You definitely arent going to get the phone for less than £400/£450
So thats 616.67 at least. which is utter ****.
Suck on that :whistling: :whistling: :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

Don't want to vote either way, as a student I would be crazy to think about going for a £40 a month deal, even if you do get an expensive phone. Plus im not too keen on the phone myself, much prefer android :)

So do you want one or not ?

What does any of this have to do with the OP's deal which is for an HTC HD2 including a year's use for just £470 ?

Erm...

Read your post again.
The Google Phone costs around £360 plus VAT, so around £425 in total.

Your O2 SIM-only idea weighs in at £215.

That's a total cost for 12 months of £640 ! If you fail to see how that is any more than this deal at £470, then something is very wrong !

You've just listed one option at £480 which includes a handset worth around £500, and an entirely different option at £216.67 which includes no handset at all :oops:

simate
I already said I would have the phone to pay for although you chose to omit that from your childish waffle. Try not to embarrass yourself any further you prat!

Are you for real ?

You've just illustrated above how you fail to see that £640 is a greater cost than £470, and now you're suggesting that other people try not to embarras themselves ?

:oops:

I'm paying £24pm for 600 minutes, 500 txt, Free Internet, Free WiFi on O2 with a 16GB iPhone.
In comparisson, this most certianly is a crap deal.

Without telling us what you paid for the handset, and how long your contract period lasts, and where the same deal is available today, that's utterly useless information :oops:

I suggest you check out O2's current iPhone pricing - http://shop.o2.co.uk/promo/iphoneindex

On a 24 month contract, the iPhone weighs in at a minimum line rental of £840 (!!) plus an additional £90 for the 16GB handset.

On an 18 month contract, the iPhone weighs in at a minimum line rental of £540 plus an additional £190 (!!) for the 16GB handset. That deal also includes just 75 minutes and 125 texts.

As pointed out, the OP's deal is excellent. Current iPhone pricing doesn't come anywhere near.
#22
I don't know why anyones moaning, this is a very hot contract, after 12 months you can sell up and upgrade, or put a sim only in there for £15 - £20 per month depending on what you want, including data and quite a lot of mins and txts. Which means it also beats 18 month contracts in the long run too.

I would get it if I wasn't already in a contract.

I think it's the windows mobile version, so if you want google's OS, don't get this deal.

Wow, by the looks of things you have bought an iPhone handset at full price PAYG style, then got a sim only deal. Wow, just wow, that must have been expensive, especially with the mediocre sim only deal it looks like you have taken up with O2. You don't even mention contract length!


This is an AWESOME deal.

Basically, call the phone value £400, which is being mean - with the deal you pay £517.77 over a 12 month contract for this (NOT INCLUDING POSSIBLE £50 QUIDCO), so the line rental is effectivelyonly £117.77 for 12 months making it £9.81 per month for 300 mins, unltd texts, unltd internet - beat that.

Or £5.65 per month effective line rental with Quidco included. - beat that mofos, one of the best phone deals I've seen.

Some people just don't understand these deals, do the math.

Probably wise to say nothing until you know the facts.

But you did make me laugh out very very loud.


Yeah I don't know the facts as you haven't provided them, I'll be happy to be in the wrong if you give the details of your contract.

I dunno, the virgin deal looks hotter to me:

vodafone:40 x 12 plus cost of phone minus quidco = £468 for 12 months usage and 1 month insurance.

virgin: 18 x 25 plus cost of phone minus quidco = £500 for 18 months usage and 3 months insurance.

So for £32 more you get 6 extra months.... 500 instead of 300 minutes....and 2 extra months of insurance? Did I get something wrong somewhere?

The gadget show's reviews are as much for entertainment as fact and hardly represent a proper review. The 3gs is superb but if you want a phone that can multi-task then it is no use. This HD2 phone can manage to take a phone call whilst still using Satnav - very handy for me but the 3gs can't do that basic requirement, it stops navigating and restarts after the call - great if you are in a city or near spaghetti junction.

My wife loves her 3gs, I love my HD2 - neither is better, one just suits my purposes, the other hers.

Good deal overall (you need to consider the whole package).

Does it come with Vodafone's branding? I remember them messing up the Omnia with that. Otherwise, it's a hot deal.

The phone's got to be paid for somehow!
#31
I've had my HD2 for a month, and it is the best WM phone ever made, and is miles better than most conventional phones even with the bugs that need ironing out.

Visit the XDA-Developers forums for a wealth of knowledge and tonnes of tweaks, bug fixes and applications.

That said, if you aren't will to put in the legwork to make the phone use it's full capabilities (being a bit geeky helps), then don't even bother, as you will just call the phone crap unfairly and send it back, haha!

As for the deal itself, not voting either way, as I got mine for £315 sim-free (employee discount!)

The Virgin deal is better than this, especially if you're a Virgin customer so you can get the first 2 months free, then you're paying less for more minutes and 6 months longer service. Even if you can't get 2 months free, it's still a better deal, as Aries37 posted above.

Do you still have a right to cancel with mobile phone deals? I don't want to sign up and then not like the phone. I'm 99% sure that you do have cancellation rights, but if anyone could confirm that, that would be great.
