I thought I'd post this even though it's not necessarily a bargain, as I get asked a lot by people what the best phone is when comparing their strength and low risk of breaking. And to be honest, it's hard to answer... mainly because they're built to be pretty weak these days which can cost many people with outdoor professions, such as builders and construction workers, quite a lot in regularly replacing their phones. Well thanks to JCB, not any more as this phone has a THREE YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY.
Mobiles2YourDoor, a site owned by the reputable "Phones4U", have this brand new handset for free on various Vodafone 12 and 18 month contracts with various free gifts. The cheapest of these, after redeemable cashback (spread over the 12 months), is £200 for the year's contract. This is "Vodafone Anytime 40" (12 month) which would cost you £480 for the year, minus the £280 cashback which you will receive. If claiming cashback isn't your thing, then you can choose for automatic cashback (lower money, but less risk) or to receive various free gifts of an XBox 360, Laptop or 32" LCD TV depending on which tarriff you choose. It's worth exploring.

Don't forget that if you do decide to order, QuidCo.com offer an extra £45 in extra cashback which means £45 in your pocket. Don't forget to cancel any insurance that they throw at you as it's usually quite expensive. **It may be worth noting that in coming months this phone may appear on pay as you go, and if that suits you better it may be worth wiating for a while. Certainly one to keep in mind though.**
