First posted deal here and I know you lot can be a pretty hostile bunch without proof, but I figure if it saves someone some money i'm willing to take some flak! I'm letting you know in advance this deal is probably not for new customers, not online - I dealt with them over the phone and may well be some kind of loyalty bonus.
I'm an existing 3 customer coming to the end of my contract (end of this month) and wanted to get the HTC desire. They don't have it in stock until the 20th, but got a call today from them saying i'm a valued customer (aren't we all?) and offered the following
HTC Desire @ £50 handset cost, dispatched on the 20th
Unlimited internet (1GB allowance when questioned)
300 3-to-3 calls and Free Skype (for what that's worth)
£16 Per Month
18 month contract.
Total price: £338 (cheaper than buying Sim free apparently! Yay!)
My word of warning though, my experience with 3 has been pretty poor. They've regularly hassled me recently during this "upgrade month", have a terrible customer service program which I suspect is in India and have made a few billing errors. They also have a tendancy to whack a load of 3-orientated software onto their phones, but dunno if that's the case here. It was with my N95.
I appreciate this isn't going to benefit everyone, but I wanted to make the two happy 3 customers in the UK know that they can get a Desire for cheaper than T Mob if they ask nicely (by threatening to leave)
