Just bought this for my daughter. May only be as good as a my first touchscreen but for a first contract phone it is ideal.
It is on Orange Dolphin £15.50 (24 months), With 100 mins + Unlimited texts ,PLUS 100MB of data usage.
Send the bills off every couple of months to get the first !!19 months!! free. Over the 24 month contract this equates to £3.23 per month.
You can't get much cheaper than that.

Bit confusing,which is it 100 mins or 200?Still good deal for either if you don't mind cashback deals,which I've never had any probs wth btw
bigjeremy#3
Not worth the risk of cashback not paying out ,100 mins aint much for £15
pipsqueak#4

The risk is that you can't be bothered to get yourself organised and send in the bills. I have had two of these contracts, one of them with mobiles.co.uk, and got all the redemption payments with no hassle at all.

The point of the post isn't that you need it, the point is it is cheaper than similar service on PAYG or other contract. If you don't need to save money, then you can save time instead, by not reading the deals on HUKD.

You can't get unlimited texts for under £4 a month ANYWHERE else so how is this not a great deal?? :S

What is the point of buying a *smart* phone nowadays, if it doesn't have wifi or 3G? Which is exactly what the Lite is offering. Your best bet is to use the sim in another phone which does support data.

I have a Samsung Tocco Lite, which I got in a redemption deal almost two years ago. It does data, and data is included in the plan (500Mb per month) on Orange. I believe it uses GPRS off the phone masts. Not as fast as 3G, but 3G isn't the only data service for mobiles, and we don't get 3G coverage here anyway. I use the data for both web browsing and email.

I can't believe this handset doesn't have wifi! Just had it down as a give-in these days. Hmm still ok maybe as an emergency phone, one for a kid etc?

The data version are pretty much as follows:
GPRS<EDGE<3G<HSDPA

GPRS is generally worse than dial up, EDGE is comparable with it and then 3G upwards are broadband like.

Out here in the Cotswolds, GPRS is what you can get, EDGE is what you ought to be able to get, but the equipment doesn't seem to be installed in our rural masts, and the other two are unheard of. We can't get broadband on landline either, as we are too far from the exchange, so we have to pay a LOT for satellite broadband. Still, I suppose 3G would be useful if I ever went into the city. Oh, and our dialup modem speeds were always pitiful too.

My heart goes out to you my friend! At home (back in Northern Ireland) we have no mobile phone signal and ~512kbps broadband and I thought that was bad! I was talking to someone once who was in a similar position to yourself, but he and all the other business owners in a small area got one satellite BB connection and used wifi repeaters to share it :)
