I've been scouting about for a HTC Hero (T-mobiles G2 Touch) for a week or so now. Having looked at sim free and all the contracts out there, the cheapest way to get on of these little delights is on a basic package. For a phone that retails for around £340 from reputable sellers, this deal comes with free minutes, txts, internet and a booster (unlimted txts or unlimited landline calls for example)

Yes there's an upfront payment of £126 for the phone, but the overall price including the £10 per month over 24 months is £366 and there a possibility of £20 quidco. Downside, inclusive minutes and txts are 100 of each (unless you use your booster option to get unlimted txts)

Including quidco this works out at an effective cost of £14.42pm. For me it's like getting the phone on interest free credit and having the bundle thrown in!

UPDATE 18:00 13/02/10: If you phone, they are able to knock a further £40 off the phone price on any of their deals. So better than quidco as it's immediate and a further £20 on top :-) EVEN HOTTER :-) Equivalent of £13.58pm over 24months. :-)

Nearest to it is from buymobilephones.net. G2 Touch again on T-mobile, again a 24month deal at £15pm. 300 minutes and txts this time, free internet (no mention of booster). Possible £25 quidco. Phone is £60 upfront on this deal. Total over 2 years is £420 (£395 inc quidco disc) - again a great deal to option this desirable phone. Equivalent of £16.46 after quidco per month.

HAPPY POST # 100 to me!

Nearly did a similar deal myself - but fell out with WIndows mobile along time a go. I understand it to be a great phone though.

I tried with T-mobile on my upgrade to get the "hero" on a £20 deal plpus a £10 deal for my Mrs. They refused and then offered to keep my old phone with a new 24m deal 300m/300txt and free internet for 6 months all for £5pm! I'll get the £10 deal and for about £20 a month - I'll be saving a tenner in my eyes! :-)

Hey guys,
Just to let you know, i ordered a HTC Hero from T-mobile yesterday (Thursday) and managed to get 300 mins, unlimited texts and unlimited internet for £15 pm and one up front payment of £30! I was speaking to a girl on the phone and i asked if i could get a discount...if you don't ask you don't get!

I called T-mobile direct to get this offer and i'm not an existing customer. Good luck!

If it helps in a T-Mobile shop I was offered £40+ off any of the web prices on the £10 or £15/month t-mobile offers and they would match the internet offers! Suspect the same is true of calling the sales line...

Try looking at the business section of the T-Mobile site, you can get a Nokia E72 unlimited everything for under £30 a month, which I think is cracking, other phones available as well, and if your Vat registered you can claim back the Vat to make it even cheaper.

I would post the deal myself but I dont fancy getting ripped apart. :x

Includes free voicemail as well, so technically that is all you will pay each month

You've made your point, now go away and leave it for real deal hunters to review here. If you come back, then it's obvious you're more about mischief than looking for a deal in the first place! I just think you're a bitter person - when was you last deal find and how hot did that get LOL http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/280468/firewire-pci-card-3port-just-3-60-m :oops:

How can the other post with a title of "300 minutes, unlimited texts, 3GB data from £15 per month on Android handsets with T-Mobile" be compared to this £10pm deal anyway!

Zanim

How much detail can you put in one title without not putting all of the message in the title - ffs.

Others - cheers for the support on a cracking deal. :-D

I have bought 2 of these on the £10 deal one with unlimited texts and the other with unlimited landline calls, excellent phone. I got £40 tracked in quidco for each phone. HOT
suspended#20
surprised this has gotten this much heat,

cheap on a monthly basis, but u hardly get any free minutes and text's. I can live with 100 text but 100 minutes is nothing. Also u have to pay a nice £126 upfront.

24 months contract as well.

i know everyone is different, but it doesn't seem u get much for your money.

I'm out of here after this one. The overall point of my orginal post is that for the upfront cost of the phone from somewhere like Amazon, you can pay £126 upfront (say 30% of the cost) and then have the rest on interest free payment terms in the form of the basic monthly contract.

I said the downside is minutes/txts, but you can upgrade for free your txts to unltd or add in free landline calls with your booster. The other big selling point is the unltd internet which is a must for this Android phone.

I'd like more minutes - I've gone for the buymobilephones deal within my op.

Au revoir :-)

Do T-Mobile charge of voicemail?
Doesn't the T-Mobile Hero have problems with streaming video and things (ie T-M played with the ROM)
I was really tempted, even with the first post, but not sure about T-M?

Also if you go direct to T-M, they give you the internet booster (3gb) and another booster free. Whereas these 3rd party sites seem to only give you the internet free.

if u are going to upgrade to get more minutes and text's, then wouldn't it better just to go for a more expensive contract but paying less for the phone? I understand paying less for the phone upfront, but if u purchase this from amazon then u are not tied to to any contracts if u have a sim already. 24 months is a long time.

One good thing is that u get the internet with it, and yes u definitely need this on a andriod phone.

Maybe i am just comparing this to my deal, which is more suited to my own personal use.
18m, £22.50, 800min, 600txt, internet, free phone.

See u later! :)

if u dial your own number then it just uses the free minutes.

Not sure about t-mob having streaming problems, but saying that i generally dont stream using the network.. much better to use wi-fi (of course when this is available).

Surely if you wanted one of these to seriously use then you should consider the deal on three.

HTC Hero, 750 anytime mins, unlimited texts, 18 month contract for £23.40 a month. Addd £5 a month for the unlimited internet to get the most out of the phone. £80 quidco which tracked pretty much straight away for me when i did it and its a pretty good deal. After quico thats £431.20 all in. Yes not as cheap as this deal but then why buy a phone like this if your not going to use it!!

I think the people who criticise forget that if others stop posting like the one above intends to then where do all the deals come from? Come on, stop being so nasty and if you have nothing nice to say don't say it! By all means say if you can get a better deal but this site depends on the interaction of others goodwill to post what they find. I for one would miss out on a lot of 'finds' if others stopped posting. Amen
#28
Its all about what you see as value, it may be a cheap contract but how many people only use 100 mins and 100 texts. If you end up paying for bolt ons or finding your bill each month goes over £10 a month it soon looses its value. Also 24 months is a long time with the same phone. I am not criticising the deal I am just saying it doesnt seem like great value in reality, as it may be cheap but thats because you dont get much. Surely if you are a light user then android handsets arent really for you. Trust me there is no point in getting this handset without being able to make the most of it.
#29
According to the T-Mobile forums this phone is having a lot of technical problems, the phone itself is great but the problems are variously being attributed to custom software from T-Mobile and/or their network. The HTC Hero is great but whatever T-Mobile have done to it to make it the T-Mobile G2 is frustrating a lot of customers.

I'm not sure about these internet addons/ minutes etc. If you top-up on PAYG by £10 on T-Mob don't you get free internet or texts or something the following month anyway? Not sure on this so some advice would be great.

I bought a Pulse (same OS, processor, memory as HTC Hero I think) on eBay for £125 and am using it on PAYG - no contract, and loving it though T-Mob needs to do a lot to improve customer service.

The HTC Legend is incoming, and directly replaces the Hero. There's no denying it is an upgraded version. As a result, expect Hero deals like this to become more common as stock is sold off.

well i txt and use the internet lots but only use minutes when i have to, so 100 mins unlimited txts and 3gb internet is enough for me,

yes i had to pay 120 for the phone, but i sold my old n95 8gb for that much, so effectivly the phone was free, 40 quid quidco tracked too, also when i want to upgrade my phone, ill just stick it on ebay and pay any extra needed.

to say that i wont use the phone as much as you if you have that deal is a silly statement

OP dont be put off by the individuals on here that have little better to do than give bad tidings to all comers. I just bought one of these from the T- mobile store local to me, I challenged them to match this deal including quido and they obliged, with 100 mins talk time, unlimited text and unlimited internet for £10 a month with a phone as good as this, what do people want for me its great?
So what if there is a new HTC phone coming out to replace this, and there will be another and another and indeed another phone just around the corner, all of which will be at a premium at least 2 fold of this deal I suspect? as for the "i" phone posse sure the "i" phone is probably better than this, but its £45 a month for 2 years, which is £900, its all about opportunity costs and personal choices I recognise but id sooner have a holiday with the £600 saved......:thumbsup:

I tried that and it didn't come out of my inclusive minutes but was charged @ 12p incl vat per call.
I then read on the android forum about HulloMaIL which is free to use and does come out of my incl minutes :)http://www.hullomail.com/gb/indexGB.html

I have had my TM Hero (G2 Touch) for about 6 weeks now and so far no probs. It truly is a fantastic phone, I have to say that the Hero forum at http://androidforums.com/htc-hero/ has been a mine of great info and tips and lots of great people there to help suggest solutions to any problems.

nope, internet is included with android phones, txt is my flexable add on, and i will enjoy it too, cheers:p
#36
I think the t-mobile £10 deal is great have got one myself with a different phone I mean which other network is gonna give you 3gb of net for anywhere near a tenner never mind the other extra unlimited bolt ons (I took unlimited landlines) Anyway if you want more minutes take out a dearer contract £15 gets you 300 should be enough if you get all your landlines free plus the dearer your contract the cheaper the handset cost. I got mine through fonehouse and it was cheaper than the tmobile website for the handset (got a samsung galaxy) you should give them a try.
#37
Oh and try instore aswell my friend got the SE W995 for free on £15 24month contract and it is showing up at £68 on their website.
#38
Called T-mobile today (first call no joy) couple of hours later got a nice bloke.
He gave me the Hero for £40 on £15 pm, 300 texts, 300 calls, unltd internet and a flexible booster (I took ultd landline).
I'm happy with that but you may be able to do even better! But I think they are getting tons of new customers already, the girl I spoke to earlier wouldn't take me on at all. You need to talk them round. The sound guy said he wouldn't have done it a couple of hours earlier either.
Thanks to OP and good luck everyone :)

Ouch from the OP - I finally plumbed for the £10 deal because they wouldn't move on the £15 deal. Got the phone for £86, so equivalent £13.58pm

This deal really is brilliant if you are currently a regular payg user.

If you split this deal up to see what you are getting you get the following.

unlimited (fair usage) internet: o2 charge £10/per month for this
100 min (average payg charge around 30p/per min): £30
unlimited texts: well, your going to use at least 200: £20

so realistically if you are currently on payg if you upgrade to this you get £60 worth of payg equivalent credit for a tenner a month and a up to date smart phone with a retail price of £300 upwards for £86.

all i can say is....nice!
