I wouldn't normally post a phone deal as 90% of the time they go ice cold but I was asked by a friend to find a reasonable phone/tarriff for him and this is the best I could find at the moment so I thought I'd share.
The LG Optimus is an Android Smartphone which gets good reviews and to buy the phone on its own is £99.99 (just reduced to this on the Carphone Warehouse site).
200mins + 200texts + Unlimited Internet (usual fair use policy of 500MB per month), they also do the same deal but with 100mins + 500texts + Unlimited internet.
Add to this £40 Quidco which could mean your monthly tariff averages out to £10.34 per month.
The new LG Optimus GT540 is a simple, stylish smartphone that's easy to use and fun to play with.
This gorgeous Android phone comes with tons of the Google applications that you use everyday, from Google internet search to Google Maps™ and GTalk™ instant messenger. It also gives you one-touch access to Android Market™, where there are over 70,000 great games and apps for you to discover and download.
A superb smartphone for beginners, LG Optimus is simple to set up and customise. Within a few minutes of turning your phone on for the first time you'll be accessing your email, instant messenger account and social network feeds. Once your phone's all set up and ready to go you can play around with the layout of each of the 5 home pages and fill them up with your favourite apps, shortcuts and widgets.
Whether you want one-touch access to your phone's media player, a game you've downloaded from Android Market or the integrated 3 Megapixel camera, it's easy to make the LG Optimus more you. Simply tap the touch-sensitive menu key to set wallpapers, customise settings, start a web search or add a shortcut to any home page. As a starting point, why not add shortcuts to some of your phone's most important features, including your contact book, messaging centre and social networking hub.
LG Optimus gives you all the features and benefits of a brand new smartphone, without any complications involved. You can access the internet via Wi-Fi or 3G, stream videos and download content, as well as accessing your emails and visiting your favourite social networks.
One of the best things about LG Optimus is its emphasis on entertainment.
