Righty-o, a bit of a convoluted deal here. Please bear with me!
Due to the lack of deals on mobiles at the moment, and my pressing need to keep my own number...I went for this.
Get the phone, web n walk, 300 mins and 200 texts per month for £35.
8 months are free, so the outlay for the year is £140.
If you go via quidco you get £40. If you were to trade the phone at cex.co.uk you'd get £63.
This means you get a year's calls / mins / web for around £37.
My criteria for this deal was to
a) Keep my number.
b) Get a good price for a year's contract.
c) Get a decent quota of call time
d) Web access without a large bill
This deal in a roundabout way suits me best. I'm not after loads of heat here and don't expect it, with the anti-cashback brigade about to pounce and the trade in aspect may not suit everyone (but Christmas is round the corner, and a few wii or 360 games will keep the family entertained!).
But hopefully some will find this deal useful.
You need to cancel both the gadget insurance and the phonecare insurance...it's free for 1 month though.
The link takes you to the site, but you'd have to find it manually on T-mobile (£30+£5 web n walk). I found it via phone-splat, and I'm having real problems adding the link directly.
There's a voucher for a headset, although it wouldn't add it for my order.
