    You can get this for under a tenner, if you don't mind a little messing about. With cashback this is effectively £1.53 per month at http://www.mobiles.co.uk/samsung-galaxy-y.html, and then topcashback give you £27 for taking out a contract. The contract itself is a bit naff though, only 100/5000/250Mb. A few months back these were going for 27p a month, cashback making them free.

    that is still signing a 24 month contract, and one must be fool to sign on a 24 month contract for this phone.....

    There is a difference between PAYG and Pay Monthly
    This is a deal for PAYG

    I have one of these on a completely free (by redemption) 24 month contract deal that was posted here a couple months back. It is a simpler version of the Galaxy, some might say "stripped down", but a big step up from my old Tocco Lite. I put a free GPS app on it so also saved having to buy a separate GPS device for the car. The only thing I might miss from the top model is the much better camera. I can do without the big Galaxy S screen- it makes the phone bigger after all, and I wouldn't watch movies or whatever on a camera anyway. The only problem with the smaller screen is that the touch keyboard is tricky. I get a lot of mis-presses.

    I don't think I would have actually paid for the phone though. After previous redemption deals I am too used to getting phones and service free.

    marko- Seems a little odd to worry about the length of a contract when you don't have to pay for it. I know some people are leery of redemption deals, but really they are a doddle if you are reasonably organised.

    These are great little phones. Do most things the big boy androids do without stopping you from sitting down !

    Unless you get lots of credit checks I'm not sure this an issue? Personally I have had a mortgage, a loan and 3 handset contracts in the last 2 years yet still pass every credit check going.

    The phones come unbranded and unlocked, it is the same phone you'd get on PAYG. If you don't like the contract just bin the SIM.

    I'm not knocking your deal, its good for what you get, just pointing out to those with less money to burn that there are cheaper ways to get this handset albeit with more hassle.

    If you are talking about redemption, there are many more better deals than this proposed deal. People who have not tried it just prepare to spend a lot of time dealing with claiming redemption. Also prepare that you might miss the date that might make you pay more ..

    Considering my time and the work to be done and the risk of missing the deadline for redemption deal, I will only do redemption deal if it is at least £1000 of money involved not £60.

    that yiu might

    Each to their own, I find emailing a pdf once every few months a fairly easy task TBH. These phones do have a calendar on them, you just stick the dates required for redemption into that when you get it. Any chance of a link to the better redemption deals? I thought this was pretty good, not as good as the one a few months back but still good.

    I agree, but your forgetting that the yoof of today dont do words 'n addin up un 'ting. Genuinely a lot of people dont have the organsiational or life skills to keep track of something simple like a redemption deal :p

    Occasional credit searches are good as they increase your credit rating. Too many over a short space of time makes you look "Credit Hungry" and is considered an indication that you potentially have finance issues.

    I have saved over a thousand pounds using redemption deals. I'm now on my third. That puts all the other savings I have made from HUKD posts in the pocket money range. Yet redemption is constantly cold voted, and the whiners continually post nonsense about how hard or dodgy it is.

    I guess it's just as well. If everyone went for these deals, and put in the claims on time, they would not be sustainable. Long live the clueless slackers, I say (just wish I didn't have to see their comments).

    L3 Optimus for the same price. Arguably it is the better phone imho. Both great deals though for half decent Android phones. Heat added.
    phanco
    Dont think the L3 is available for £39.99 (to existing t-mobile customers) - and all reviews I can find the Vivacity is far ahead of the L3
    marko35
    even though i posted this deal i tend to agree vivacity is on a different league all together.
    marko35
    as for the choice between l3 and this samsung galaxy y, i wouldnt know what to choose

    in theory yes, but let's face it if it all worked as planned these redemption companies would go bust, it's a numbers game, sure some people will follow everything to the letter and get the deal but in reality a huge chunk of people will trip up on the way. They're great deals for a certain type of people but certainly not for everyone.

    one of the pitfalls isn't even claiming back all that is owed, it's also timing the cancellation of the contract so you don't fall foul of the redemptions rules (you generally can't cancel the contract before making your final claim) during that point you're (potentially) still paying for a contract that really should have ended (due to the notice period you have to give, even an organised person might end up paying for 2 months of contract which they can't claim back).


    With companies like Ovivo springing up who offer (essentially) free mobile services (200min, 200txt, 500mb internet) every month, the catch being you see adverts when browsing on a 3g connection I think the majority (of light users) would be better off just going for a PAYG (needs to be vodafone or unlocked) and sticking in a Ovivo sim

    looks wise, galaxy y looks good.. however l3 has good internal memory which helps for apps installation.
