Silly Thing To Do ?

Bit of a random and strange thread but here it goes.

Where do I start ?. Ok so I have a bit of a soft spot for all things gadget like and tend to go out and buy things I don't need which brings me to my current niggle. Basically I would like a new phone, that been the Samsung Omnia. The problem ?, I'm currently in a 12 Month Contract with Orange which I only started in May currently costing £20PCM.

Now the Samsung is available with Videofone on a 12 Month £35PCM Contract free, a good deal I must say !. My other problem though I don't tend to make many calls or txt a lot of people so I'd end up with two contacts costing £55 per month and I wouldn't hardly use the minutes etc. I'm only working part-time at the moment but can still afford it (One of the perks of living at home with cheap rent, no bills etc)

I tried loading off my current contract to a family member but they particularly interested so I can't get away with that. So that leads me here, I need talking out of doing this !

You only live once I guess but still.

Go on tell me it's a silly idea !

Would your current contract company not upgrade from 20ppm to a deal @ 35ppm with the newer phone if you contacted them and explained it.

If not, then having 2 phones and paying out 55ppm on them when you wont use the texts and calls is just plain silly.

Put the £35 it would cost for the new phone aside every month anyway and at the end of the year you will have £400+ to buy a real cracker.

Cheers guys, nice to see you're all sensible people. Will try and wrangle a better deal out of Orange I think. Would be the best idea at the end of the day.

Haha, That's a great video. Think I'll leave it there now though !

While I'm here though is it possible to upgrade a tariff and upgrade the handset ? Anyone ever gone down that road ?

Cheers.

Firstly great video, I'm waiting delivery of my phone, looking forward to the marching band.
Secondly if you go out and spend all this money on a phone sorry 2 phones, in a couple of months your really gonna regret it. You are right you only live once so forget the phone and have several very memorable nights out or for this money a holiday. In many years time your gonna be telling people about this great phone you once owned, or some fantastic holiday where you met the love of your life......The only reason I'm getting this phone is my contract runs out in 2 days and they offered me this, I do love my gadgets and can be very obsessive so I understand to some degree the position you are in. By the time your contract is finished there may be a phone with pull out spaceship and a hoard of dancing ladies, or men depending on your inclination.

Went for this in the end but only because my current contract has been taken over. So I will be paying £35 PCM with £90 cashback to come.

Just got to wait on Vodafone getting the stock.
