Go easy, ice-cubes.
Have to pay £40 up front for handset, but Quidco tracked at £15.
£20 off the handset itself, £10 a month off the line rental (no redemption rubbish), free 8mb broadband for duration of contract if in Orange broadband area, huge amount of minutes and texts on an 18 month contract. Magic numbers and free evening and weekend data for 2 months. Absolute steal - 4 offers in one deal!
After Quidco, it all comes to £385. Phone itself is £369.99 on Play, £20 less on dodgy-looking sites. http://www.play.com/Mobiles/Mobile/4-/10823762/HTC-Hero-Sim-Free-Unlocked-5-0-Megapixel-Mobile-Phone/Product.html
Phone arrived next day via Royal Mail. Does not come with data, but shouldn't be too much of a problem for a lot because this phone has wi-fi.
You can add an internet addon to this, £7.50 extra a month for unlimited and it can be cancelled again (which suits me). Even without a plan, the max you will be charged per day is £1.24, but you can turn off the data connection on the phone and be charged zero.
I love the phone, and mine didn't have the big ugly orange logo on the front (in the pic), but on the back where it looks better. Make sure to update your firmware once it arrives, as it addresses the only issue reviewers really had with the phone - UI lag. It handles an insane amount of background processes.
Absolutely love the phone. Heavily recommend this deal. Thanks.
