A very brief outline!...

Available on Virgin Media/18month contract.

This is the cheapest I've seen this, may well be cheaper elsewhere, but a corking deal and Quidco available.

Has anyone got a direct link, its blocked for me.

Also is it a 24 month or 18 monther?
#3
Very good deal voted hot.
#4
Heat added, great deal.
I'm due for an upgrade from my contract so if they can't match (or hopefully offer something better) this I'll be going for this.

Don't forget Quidco/Topcashback - Quidco offers £30, don't know about TCB.

you should be looking for a better deal for an upgrade as anyone can get this deal as a new customer

Any advice on what to say when speaking to customer services about an upgrade?
First time that I've been on a contract so have no idea what to expect during the conversation and outcome. :oops:

Have a look for retention threads on the mobile phone boards on MSE, should give you an idea of what to expect.

Slightly off topic - but if your looking for a great touch screen phone, T-Mobile does the HTC Hero (G2) £20 x 18months + £91 handset fee (300/300 & internet) = works out to be £25 for 18 months.

However, this will probably drop in price, as newer HTC are due in late March.

Had the E71 and would not go for E72 now... Annoying delays when launching apps, froze many times without apparent reason. E72 may be better, still I'm wary of this E series now.

Really? I've got one and its great, as a result about 5 people I know have one too. I'd happily have an E72 right now. Voted hot

I have had this phone for 2 months now , £25 pm 600 mins and the rest unlimited on vodafone but that was an upgrade deal, I have had no problems with the phone , it does what it does very well , no app delays or freezing here as yet , the screen isnt as crisp as the blackberry bold but the build quality is great, email works great as well , cant fault it if you want a phone to use as a phone and as a plus the nokia maps thing is free now , used it a few times now and its got me where i was going with no issues.
#12
i have an E71, amazing phone, will keep E71 for a while though
#13
Excellent phone, excellent deal. I have its little brother the E63 and its a great phone. However I have now found myself a little bored after about 8 months and want an android phone!

Depending on the network you are, do some research. For example I am (was) with Orange, just stopped my contract with Orange this morning (my phone + my wife). We are switching to Virgin Media on a Blackberry. The guy I had on the phone this morning asked me why i was leaving Orange, when I told him that I was joining Virgin, he said to me "Well does not matter really as Virgin is T-Mobile, and T-Mobile is merging with Orange, so we are not really loosing you". I should have said when i was trying to get a better deal that I was going over to Vodafone or O2. Lesson learnt

Yep, me too. Best phone I ever had. (And will be keeping too.)
#16
I am very interested in this. It is an 18 month contract.

What is "Unlimited" internet like on Virgin Mobile ?

Anyone on Virgin able to vouch for this aspect of the deal ?

In my experience they really don't want to know what you can get elsewhere and keep repeating parrot fashion what a good deal they are offering you no matter how many times you tell them you can get much better elsewhere ! Good luck.

I'm very happy with my E71 and wouldn't like to part with it, I run Tom Tom on it and a great app that turns it into a mobile wifi hotspot ( Joikuspot) with no slow downs or freezing.

Heat and rep added. Great deal.

Now that you can get slingplayer mobile for the newer nokias and now that nokia sat nav is free, it looks especially tempting. As far as I can tell you can just download the map for anywhere you are going on holiday for free too. quite a tempter.

Are there any advantages or disadvantages to the e72 over the e71?
#19
Agree on E71. Excellent phone and will upgrade in a flash to a E72
#20
cold! i've got this £15 a month, 800 mins and unlimted txts on orange. No internet but could add for £5 therefore still only £20.

Fully agree, got the E71 after the E61 and allthough it is an improvement I still feel like a beta-tester for Nokia. This thing freezes at least once a day, especially when using push mail and when being frozen it often sucks out the battery within a couple of hours. Shame that in my company I can only get Nokia's, but privately I abolustely avoid them. Shame, my (basic) Nokia 6020 I had some time ago was a very good phone, almost impossible to kill and excellent battery life (which cannot be said of the E71 which holds 2 days if I am lucky)
#22
i have had an e71 for 6 months and its been great, awesome for podcasts, facebook, opera browser, bbc iplayer, satnav, google maps, office documents. oh and phone calls! i would heartily recommend an e72 as they are pretty much the same but better camera and battery life
#23
Had an E71 for 18 months and it's an incredible phone. Syncs calendar, email, manages music and podcasts, allows work on documents, all with a battery that lasts 4-5 days at a time. Recently switched to Android and had a horrible experience - Android's like Apple in that they believe a smartphone battery that lasts a single *day* is good. Nokia seem to be the only company that know that battery life is imperative.

Voted hot - great price for the contract

Best advice is not to ask for an ungrade to to ask for your PAC to leave. It will then depend on how much you spend / how much they want to keep you as to what happens next. At worst they will give you a PAC that you don't have to use in which case you carry on with them.

Didn't think this was available direct from Orange.

Everybody, I have owned this phone before it even started coming out in the UK. My previous phone was the E71, so I thought i'd go for the E72.

Now, i'll be totally honest. The phone will become buggy for some of you who will use its email features. Just like the e71 when it newly came out, it was full of bugs. But the e71 had a couple of firmware upgrades and became the best phones in the market. The e72 is following that path too! Only problem is its taking ages for the new firmware to come out to fix the bugs. So, for those who want to get this phone, I just want to warn you that you will find bugs (believe me, I bought it offline straight from Nokia!) Most of the time, I am kinda forced to do factory reset to get my email features working again. What exactly happens is that your connection to your mail accounts stop working. You'll try everything to get it connected to your mail account and you'll fail. If you want to see proof on this, go to 'Nokia Discussions' board and see how many complaints there are.

Overall, its an amazing phone, it has the new 600mhz cpu processor and runs on symbian. And now symbian has become open sourced, so expect to see great apps coming out on symbian phones in the future.
#27
Seems a good deal to me. Might get this for the Mrs as her w800i has almost given up!

jonathan88, how did you mange to get that deal on orange??????

i've got this phone for about nearly 3 months and luckily i got on a nice deal from F***ing VF..they are greedy bast**ds ... actually most of the networks are trying to blackmail the innocent customers by signing them up in lengthy contracts
i find some groups on facebook
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=299284798748&ref=ts

Any-ways back to the phone..the phone is very nice and the best thing about it is its battery life 2 days plus with normal usage..i dont have any problem with it freezing yah it does but its only once in a blue moon so no problem..Nokia email is great on it as soon i get a email its pops straight into me phone..4 accounts setup..though some software issues like most of the symbian software's are not compatible but still many available..

i'll give it more marks on e71 as it is a-lot mature than e71 and i hope with coming firmware upgrades it'll get batter.

Ordered, and heat added. I was about to buy a blackberry, think this looks altogether a better phone for my needs. Good find!
#32
the buy mobile phones deal is 24 months and you pay £20 for the phone, but it is £2 less a month and you get 50 more minutes, but less texts and you will pay for voicemail (i think 12p/min)
#33
My e72 arrived, and it's a quality bit of kit. HOWEVER, I can't for the life of me set it up with my email!

Anyone want to help?

no its £15 a month so thats £7 a month less. I was confused by the internet aspect though, is it unlimited with both?

On a previous deal related thread someone clarified the Virgin package's take on unlimited internet (post #12):
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/579091/nokia-e72-on-virgin-18-month-contra
However whether it's subject to a fair usage policy (I'd imagine it would) I can't confidently confirm.

Furthermore I can't comment on T-mobile's mobile internet usage policy.

I called Vodafone about being eligaible for an upgrade and, to cut the story short: Regardless of the person calculating I used on average a fraction of the free minutes and txts on my current 12 month package tried upgrading me with a 24th month contract with an equal surplus of minutes an texts if I were to upgrade to a E72.

Vodafone have lost a customer and I'll most likely sign up for the Virgin package for it being more suited to my usage as well as being more comfortable with a shorter contract length.

Two questions for anyone who took the deal.

1. Is the phone unlocked? I read a passing comment on another thread that the Virgin e72s are unlocked.

2. Did it come with a micro SD card? There is no mention of one on the Virgin website.

Many thanks if anyone can help.
