T-Mobile are reducing the amount of inclusive inclusive airtime on 12 month FlexT contracts taken out on or after Wednesday 15th August. Also, calls to voicemail will no longer be included in the inclusive credit supplied each month and there will be a minimum call charge on one-minute.

Flext £25 will be reduced from £40 inclusive credit to £30; Flext £35 will be reduced from £120 inclusive credit to £90; Flext £50 will be reduced from £170 inclusive credit to £125.

If you were thinking of taking up one of these contracts then NOW is a good time!!

Click on "Go to Deal" to see offers available online direct from T-Mobile. Often special offes can also be found by telephoning T-Mobile, so you may also wish to try that before trying. If ordering online then don't forget QuidCo which will give you £12 back.

Here are a selection of current cashback deals on the FlexT tariff.


The Moible Outlet have the FlexT 35 tariff with 12 months free line rental on a 12 month contract after cashback with most handsets you can imagine (literally - just name one), including the Sony Ericsson W580i, S500i and the Nokia 6300. QuidCo is available at £30.

CoolNewMobile also have a few phones, including the Samsung D900i, on the FlexT 35 tariff with 12 months free on a 12 month contract after cashback. QuidCo also available here.

Damn, my contract expires next month and i was going to see if they give me a better deal on my flext 35 but if i'm lucky they're going to tell me they'll give you the same amount of minutes i'm already on, which isn't good enough.

I like the way flext tariffs say " £180 of value" as if you can spend it how you wish only its not its on uk texts and calls to uk mobiles/landlines.

Why can't they just take the price of other calls off the "value" amount? :roll:

Oh, i just realised this is on 12 months basis..... i don't care about that then, as i'm on an 18 month contract. lol

It would be great if companies provided a good 12 month contract, i hate the fact that i have to wait 18 months to get another new phone and most of the best phones are normally at least a few months old, so you end up having a 2 year old phone at the end of your contract.

I also think it's rubbish that they say you'll receive £180 of credit but they charge almost double of there pay as you go price plan, which is 12p a minute, whereas the contract is 20p a minute and i always slightly run over my minutes.

Just to inform those than can take advantage.

If you can register as business customer, or even get existing contract changed over to business customer then voicemail retreaval is free and has never been part of any FLEXT usuage or any other tariff for that matter. Also phone is replaced in 24 hours no questions asked up to about 5 or 6 times within 18 month contract.

I am on flext 35 at the moment and have 8 months left in my contract i hope they offer me the same allowance that i have now in 8 months time if not then they will have to offer me a better phone to compensate of the loss, not my problem with they lower the tariff!!!:whistling:

Flext20 is the cheapest mate, tis the one im on. Signed up when they were doing a special offer a few months back and pay £15 a month instead of £20! Get £34 credit for that, more than enough given i use the internet for most of my phoning/messaging :-D

Was a cracking deal tbh, line rental down from £20 to £15, free W810i, free travel speakers (retailing for £25) and the option to upgrade after 12-months! :giggle:

To be honest, that's a rubbish deal when you consider you signed up for a 12 month contract, as even on pay as you go on t-mobile, it's 12p per minute with no obligation to spend more than you need and they provide you with special offers, such as unlimited weekend texts and 20% free extra minutes.

Obviously the benefit of PAYG is you have no obligation to spend more than you need to with no long term committments, but you don't get a free phone which you can buy for cheap anyway and you're supposed to get a lot less minutes.

Not long left on these now...!!

I think 18 month contracts have been better on T Mobile (and other networks) since Flext came out over 18 months ago.

Both the network and consumer win over it. Network makes more cash as they don't have to hand out upgrades as often and consumer gets 50% more credit per month.. which works out more than the value of the handset.

I only recommend a 12 month contract to low usuage users who don't think they will use all their credit and where the phone is free on both 12 and 18 month contracts. At the end of the day, you could sell the handset on a 12 month contract on ebay which will quite easily pay for most of the total cost of ownership anyway. This strat makes even the downsized 12 month low usuage flext tariffs still better than PAYG.

Anyone interested in doing this needs the Samsung U600... its free but value is a lot higher than the other "free" ones, that end up on ebay.

If you recommit to another 18months and not take a new phone then T-Mobile may offer you anything up to £15 off your per monthly line rental. Other users have had a similar experience here...

http://www.whatmobile.net/forumvb/showthread.php?t=19433

In 18months you save -> £15 x 18 = £270 (Which incidentally is just under the going rate for a new N95 on eBay at the moment). So either take the savings long term or get a wedge of cash sooner by eBaying T-Mobile's highest value handset now to put towards a simfree phone as you wish.

My 18months will be up in October and I'll be trying for the reduction in line rental, that way I can take contract lenght out of the equation when deciding when I can and can't get a new phone :) (assuming my mins/tx needs don't change then this will work, but Flext35 + WnW is more then plenty).

18 month contracts may work out better from the network, but cashback contracts are best on 12 months, with 12 months free line rental and a shiny new phone every year.

I still have my old "one to weekend" tariff which has always had free voicemail retrival and still does, as i took flext 75 (£50 a month as i got the discount last year) in addition to this contract I only pay £2-99 a month for it, giving me 48 hours at weekend free to uk landlines, plus my £390 a month on the flext which I only pay £53 a month for, and yes I do use it all :whistling:

well just make up a name for your business,anything realistic,like errr say dh jones & partners ...........next step ...they could ask for a business card to be faxed to them,google it for a free one,they could also ask for a company letterhead,easy peasy from ya printer,make it look good,if they say where is ya business premises ....just say u work from home ....and ya self employed........wicked!:-D
#26
Things to add:

If you have web and walk £7.50 a month, you can still have the "old" 12 month allowances post tomorrow.

They are the Flext ** + Web n Walk tariffs, which are unaffected.
