I was on the phone to Three today to renew my contract. After being told my account was elligble for the HTC hero as it was not in Stock the guy offered me the W995.

I was told as a special off he would throw in mobile internet and a 8gb memory card for free.

Is this a good deal?? He kept going on about the mmega pixel camera which appears to have got bad reviews online.

The offer he seemed to be offering seemed to have the internet and 8gb memory card free over what they offer online.

Any thoughts??? Is this phone really worth the money? Whats it like for mobile internet?

It's the best phone i've ever had, i love it. Internet works great, use the internet app, not the wap built in thing. The camera is good i think, and the 8gig card comes with it anyway.
#2
I agree with the above.
#3
I have this phone on Orange, I pay £30 for unlimited txts, internet & 900 anytime mins,the internet is good on it & so is the camera I dont know were you looked at the rewiews for the phone I looked for a month & this phone had great reviews (better than the sony C905).
What minutes,txt are you getting (mine is an 18 month contract).
Katie.

for mine i pay £34 for 600 mins unlimited texts 18 months, but did get mine 8am the day it came out.
#5
300 min and 300 texts. So £24.57 less the vat isnt that great a deal. Its only £5 of the website price.

So the 8gb card comes with the phone.

When did the phone come out??

Is the HTC Hero or the soon to come N900 better?

I am extremely ****** off they refused to offer me the HTC model. Wasted 40 mins on the phone.

Think it was end of june in shops and middle july for networks.

Yes 8gig card comes with it, don't let them tell you otherwise

Trouble is he spends so long giving the marketing talk its hard to get a word in. I really do think they just talk from crib sheets.

I would ring up and go to cancel department, and see what they might offer you by saying your leaving.

Hope that helps

I would be wary about renewing contract over the phone,they offered me free internet as well but after the first month I noticed them charging me.Denied they ever said it.Then wouldnt let me cancel cos I was in a new 18 month contract.This was standard practice at the start of the year.They would say anything to get you to take out the new contract.(This was last Jan)There was plenty of forums with people complaining the same had happened to them.I would get everything in writing,or better still just cancel and go elsewhere.
#11
Apart from above,I have got one of these now (from Orange) best phone I have ever had.Wish I`d had it at the start of the year when talking to 3.Its got a record conversation facility lol
#12
Got mine on free upgrade on voda for re-signing a 12 month contract on <£10 per month....

Thats what I did first. The lady kept telling me my account was not allowed or acceptable for the HTC phone. It almost sounded like she was saying some customers can have the phone but others cant.

The cancellation guy told me it was out of stock!! it would of been simpler if the lady had said that.

So what phone would you lot reccommend? Any better deals going?
#14
It's definitely a good phone this - very well reviewed.

It's currently on offer for £200 at Phones4U. Would love to own it myself but haven't got the dough. The Orange one has been confirmed as being unlocked and debranded and probably the Vodafone one too.

Check this thread on the deal http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/508211/sony-ericsson-w995-vodafone-orange-

This phone is great, i would get it, but on another network. I'm with o2 and comes unlocked
#16
take the hero and wait for stock, trust me the hero worth alot more, and if you ever decide its the phoen for you, sell it (even 2nd hand is worth alot more than w995) and then buy the w995 lol, htc hero has had rave reviews btw, its a the competitior to the iphone, with its similar andriod marketplace, (ie app store) and intuitive os by google
#17
def get this phone - its great!
#18
It' better to record the call in case they are cheeky.
#19
I have the HTC Hero and I love it. Not had a Sony Ericsson for a while as I like my phones to do more but I can't comment on newer models. If you want to see a Hero working, get on Youtube. I have had mine a couple of weeks now and I am not regretting it.
#20
Do you think I should ask them to go £22.50 a month on this phone?? It would seem they can go a bit lower. The issue is 14.5 months on I will be on the same three network.

I am concerned if I get a cheaper deal elsewhere over the phone talking to some indian call centre I will get told one thing over the phone and another later on.

200/18= £11.11. Add on internet for £5 and thats 16.11. Question is what value is 300 texts and 300 mins on calls worth? If i move elsewhere i need to give a month notice. I am past month 18 so should have acted earlier. :(

I am quite frustrated that they seem to be refusing me the Hero model. It does appear to be new on their website. it wasnt there last month. Hmmmm.
