Just decided to purchase one of these for myself as I was paying £15 pm for a o2 simplicity contract, this works out cheaper and you get a nice phone. Contract is only 12 months too. £150 has to be claimed back via redemption and £30 can be claimed by going through the quidco site. I just had to edit this as when I ordered they offered £195 redemption which had worked out at £11.25 a month, anyway £15 a month for 12 month contract still seems good.

Too many ifs and buts to get that price, not a fan of the 'claim back' redemption.

I would have stuck with the simplicity myself - but thats just me, using the 30day Simplicity online 20 and loving it, I'll never have another contract phone.
#2
If anyone doesn't fancy the redemption, I took out a 12 month, t-mobile combi 30+web and walk - £35 a month but £115 auto cashback (no sending off vouchers/bills) and £20 quidco, so roughly 25 a month for 12 months. That was with buymobilephones.net

Vodafone are doing 18 months £35 with 10 months half price, also good if you want to go direct.

Good deal though if you don't mind the redemption factor.
#3
I'm paying £21.75 for an 18 month contract 600 minutes unlimited texts, phoned orange and said about that voda phone deal and thats what they offered me, no cash back to clame just a cheap contract for lots of minutes and texts
#4
Was tempted to go with orange but extra £5 for web. O2 were offering it for free. Just waiting for the phone to come back in stock

This might look like a silly question but where can i see the vodafone deal? Nothin on VOD website?

Cheers Pal. For the sake of discussion..isnt E71 a better phone than 5800. Considering that buymobilephones are doing 12month contract with auto cash back which works out @25pm effective on Tmobile combi 35+web walk would it not be a better deal?
#8
depends what you mean by better mate, e71 has a higher value, and I was torn between the two.. however, big touchscreen for browsing meant more to me than exchange support and querty keyboard. + I wanted to try the new s60 version.

I would think the E71 better for business, 5800 for entertainment, IMHO

3.5 headphone jack for example, makes a huge difference to me.

Was not impressed with the cowboys at phones4u . Myself and a mate both applied for this contract when it was £195 cashback a week or so ago and we BOTH had the contracts refused ! We both have an excellent credit rating and have had contracts before , i suggest Phones4u are plugging these excllent deals to get people on their site but once they"ve given away a few " bargain deals " at this price they simply refuse everyone else"s contracts !

Incidentally , they actually denied my mate had applied for the contract ,even though he had a confirmation email AND the Quidco tracked - DUMMIES !!


I for one wont be using "Phones not for u " anymore , will take my buisness to someone who wants it .

:thumbsup: Spot on that description, I've owned both. Size wise the E71 is wide and slim, the 5800 more narrow and fat. They are different things geared toward business or entertainment but also the big decision is do you prefer keys or touch, generally business = keys.
One thing to watch with both is the type of data contract - the phones don't "work" well unless they have an unlimited data contract and Orange doesn't do that well. Personally 02 and Voda don't work well in my area so I'm not sure what's available from those prioviders but TMobile Web and Walk suits the phone well.

On what plan? Surely not the £15/pm one?
#13
I agree with David C - you need unlimited internet with this phone. I'm on the t-mobile web and walk, through buymobilephones.net with the auto cashback. I was in london at the weekend trying to find the hotel, and the GPS and maps are excellent!
#14
If you work out the vodaphone deal, £35/month for 600mins unlimited text/internet, 10 mths 1/2 price, plus £90 Quidco + 2.5% difference in VAT (not deducted on Vodaphone site) the vodaphone deal worksout at less than £20 per month on average, with no dodgy cashback to chase!
#15
I don't trust phones4u either they never do anything properly had bad dealings with them in the past and their customer service is the worst

Cheers for that advice. Please can you explain in detail what you mean by "work well". I plan to go for a 5800 now.. but would prefer on orange purely because I am already with them and would want to use Orange Wednesday's. Also T mobile charge extra for voicemail @12p per min which will add up...

If you use the Internet fetaures of the phone, push email, mapping, Internet Radio, YouTube etc - and chances are you will as that is one of the main reasons to get a smartphone - then the volume of data can quickly add up. When I was with Orange they would only allow you something like 4Mb a month on contract and it was VERY expensive if you went over. Yes you could buy bundles to make it cheaper but they expired each month and so difficult to manage.
Tmobile web and walk is "unlimited" data - although in reality there is a 1Gb limit - but it does mean you don't get nervous each time the phone goes online. That's what I mean by work well. I typically use about 20Mb a month but it varies widely.
Note you do still have to turn data off when going abroad as costs of that are always extra.
For Orange Wednesday family has a spare pay as you go which I top up often enough for it to qualify.

The 5800 does has exchange support.... or am I thinking about something different?

My 5800 connects to the microsoft exchange network and pushes to the emails to my phone automatically. Calenders also synchronize.

How do you turn the data off on this phone? Cheers.
