Not sure if this is going to go red hot or freezing cold - its a £5 monthly contract with 50 txts and 50 minutes per month. Minutes and txts do not rollover (as with most contracts). The bad news? 36 month contract. You are eligible for a new phone after 18 months though.....

*edit actually £4.89 p/m with the VAT reduction

The free phone is a Nokia 2323 or you can put some money towards a better one

Possible £50 quidco (according to the quidco website) - however as its a cheap contract not sure whether they will honour it

I'm seriously considering this as its the cheapest monthly tarif yet. I use about £3-4 a month and that gets me 30-40txts, so it basically offers me the chance to use my phone for 50 minutes talk time a month for £1 and send a couple more txts. I'm put off by the length of the contract and I assume the nokia 2323 is VERY basic?? the quidco could persuade me if it tracks - it basically pays the first years fees

Also qualifies you for Orange Wednesday's - BOGOF at the cinema (but you can do thiat cheaper by just getting a (free) sim

blurb:


Orange today announces that it is extending its Pay Monthly (PAYM) range to include a £5 tariff, the lowest contract price point on the market, alongside new £10 and £15 monthly plans. Available from 1st June 2009, these 36 month great value plans provide customers with two handsets one when they signup and another after 18 months. Orange will also introduce 18 month SIM Only contracts for the first time which provide customers with more inclusive minutes and text messages offering better value than ever before.
Neil Macgeorge, Director of Pay Monthly, Orange UK said: In the current economic climate, the demand for both low-cost monthly plans which include a phone and SIM only deals has materially increased. These new 36 month phone plans starting at £5 will provide light users with more choice since currently their only option is a pay as you go package. They are ideal for people who dont want to go through a top up process, are happy to commit to a contract, want the security of knowing that they wont run out of credit and who want a phone included in the package. Some customers worry about handsets wearing out so the mid term replacement means they neednt be concerned. We think that this is just the sort of innovative approach to meeting changing customers needs during this time."

36 months????errrrrr
I'm just wondering they will now start contracts for 5 yrs or 10 yrs soon....
mobile industry is going nuts....ridiculous....gone were the days of 12 months contracts....

However good deal for low spenders..may suit old people..

I think 18 month contracts are bad enough but 36 months!!!!
Still I do not think you can get anything else for £5 p/m
( mobile contract wise anyway.....)

Its a Nokia 2330 or Orange vegas (pink or black)

The £10 one looks pretty good 100mins 300sms for £9.79 with SE W395i

Hot from me! My wife was spending £10 a month on PAYG and was happy with her SE handset so went for this deal, got £50 quidco then sold the nokia for £30 meaning 16 months of line rental covered and saving £160 of payg talktime. Result in my books :thumbsup:

She doesnt care about the latest handset just needs a small amount of talktime & texts each month.

heat added :)

Asda Mobile is 8p per minute, which gives 62 minutes for a fiver. That doesn't include text's but they are only 4p. And no contract tie in.

is the 50mins cross network or just land line ?

Vodafone, I think

If you go for this make sure you don't go over your 50 mins as it looks like it'll be 24.5p a minute for every minute you go over.

I think I'll stick to ASDA Payg which I can confirm does use the Vodafone network and from my limited exposure has a good customer service team.

x network, or to a landline

The length of the contract does bother me, but if you look at it another way, if you are on a £30 a month contract and already have a decent phone and are coming to the end of the contract - you will save around £1000 over the next 3 years by switching. Now I've seen 50p savings voted red hot - how hot for a grand??? Oh - -51 :roll:

Oh well - I figured it might well go cold and I appreciate those who added heat in the spirit it was intended - ie to help someone save money

Does anyone know if you get a better choice of free phone in 18 months time?? That WOULD swing it for me.......:santa:

Ouch! don't go over your limit kids :w00t: Although I am currently on orange PAYG at I'm sure its 20 odd p (possibly the 24.5p quoted) for me anyway, so no loss. In fact a £10 saving (technically)

seems a reasonable statement, although potentially lethal to assume that her requirements will not change (up or down) over this contract duration of the next three years!

The deal with Asda at 8p calls and 4p texts would cost 50*0.8+50*.04 = £7. Extra minutes would cost 8p each as well but I guess the Orange ones will be much more. Also, people who use less than 50 minutes don't send 50 texts either so you'd probably be better off on the Asda deal. You can get a cheap phone for £5.

Yes, I like the Asda concept, not having to pay for time when you're on holiday etc, or want a break.

Many low users could still be better off with a cheap phone, ASDA payg, and getting themselves a new cheap phone after 18 months, if they really want to. My old mums on payg, doesn't use
much, and phone's now about 4 years old, Nokia 3400.

ASDA data also seems well prices, compared to others - not dongle type data, just data used from a voice plan.

Also, don't like encouraging contracts to become standard as longer than 12 months, which has been happening.

I'm assuming that new phone after 18 months will be an equivalent phone, not a top of the range phone for a low spend customer.
