i know this is going to get shot down in flames again, it's not the best phone, and £99 for the handset is pushing it and a 24 month contract is hardly ideal, however i would like to make people aware that i think the wildfire is the cheapest handset to receive the 2.2 froyo update. the HTC Wildfire has just got it's 2.2 froyo update which allows the handset to run as a wifi hotspot thus enabling a user to connect to the phones 3g connection for internet tethering, and this contract includes unlimited* internet (i would assume this would be based on a fair usage policy).

i usually go into much more details when i put a post on hotukdeals, but i've got the flu and this is the best i can manage, this post is not the bargain of the century but a £10pm contract smartphone that can become a wireless access point (legally). some people pay more than £10pm for a 3g dongle, and they are not phones, you don't get 100 free txts or 100 free minutes and a choice os a flexible booster

cant believe you posted such a shockingly **** deal.....
wildfire rrp is 189 yea, but u can get it from phones4u for £129. then get a sim only from 3 for example for £10 a month, where u get 100 mins, 3000 texts, 1gb internet.
3 have the largest 3g coverage, and cheaper shorter contract if u look at it as a contract, however its a 1 month rolling contract with the sim deal im talking about so you can cancel whenever you like by giving 30 days notice.

Bo0td, thank you for your input, i was not suggesting using the phone and or network for peer to peer file sharing, you quoted "you can't use your phone as a modem" i believe the term modem is a bit redundant, this is an official android update that t-mobile has distributed to it's customers, and the skype app is freely available in the android market place as it is in apple app store

TheDelBoy, it's not the greatest deal in the world but a cheap phone on a cheap (but long) contract, with the added benefit of an addhok internet connection on the go

Not a bad deal. I've been with T-Mobile using a G2/HTC Hero since February. In urban areas, I've usually got both HSDPA and voice coverage. Out in the sticks it can be a bit touch-and-go, but still better than Orange (and of course, one can roam onto Orange for 2G+GPRS as backup since their merger). I use the flexi booster to provide unlimited texts.

My only caution would be that the smaller-than-average size of the Wildfire's screen might prevent some apps from running. The Motorola Defy for an extra £16 is perhaps a better buy.

my daughter upgraded her phone contract b4 amas with 3 for £15 a month and got the following
unlimited internet
5,000 3 to 3 calls
3,000 any network calls
2,000 text messages
and a htc wildfire phone. good deal or what
she has no problem with the phone whats so ever.

when you talk to them of renewing your contract try pull a few strings like saying another company offers better than that. or you will think about it etc, thats the best was is to haggle with the companys cause if they give in and give you a good deal then they certainly can afford to do this. even if you ring back later the next day they could give you a different deal altogether.

The 3gig date and added WiFi hotspot is a real deal in my eyes and it is unlimited, if you use your full allowance they reduce your bandwidth to stop streaming etc but you can still browse the net in other words what ever you do with your phone no data charges ever, although there may be better ways of taking advantage of this than the deal posted

Sorry but you would be far better off buying the handset on PAYG and then finding a sim only contract deal.

To Shoogle.

I don't know all the ins and outs of this deal but
it seems that it's not the best out there.
May I suggest that you take a "Mickey Finn"
to help your flu, switch of this aggro and have a
good sleep.
You can come out with all guns blazing on another
day. Get well soon.

It depends on whether you just want a shiny new handset to show off with and use for basic voice/SMS, or you actually want to make extensive use of 3G data. T-Mobile's data network actually works, provides respectable performance (about 2Mbit/s in my experience), 3GB/month FUP limit (for contracts initiated with an Android handset), and is reportedly only throttled after 3GB.

i know this deal on the wildfire isnt the best, but i really do think that the data allowance and wifi hotspot facility on the htc handsets with the added fiexible booster is a cracking deal and isnt getting the heat it deserves on other posts ive seen , then again i use the data allownce for my netbook and my booster is 1000 land line mins which i also use,maybe its just good for me.
good stuff from tmobile for once

you clearly just made that up or didnt get the right information , 3 do not offer 3000 mins, maybe 300?

either way the deal you have mentioned cant be compared to the one being discussed as, it involves paying around £100 for the handset then committing to a 24 month contract

where as ive said pay 129quid, and get a sim only, or even better 3, give for £10 on PAY AS U GO. 100mins 3000 texts 500mb net.

even better option for those who dont even want to commit to a 1 month sim only. LOL
