I've been looking to get a N85 for a while now, and it seems that the networks don't seem to want to push/offer this phone. Ebay is around £330 but I don't like going down that route due to insurance scammers, warranty etc.
Dialaphone has it, on Vodaphone and Orange, on some pretty crappy contracts. I was thinking of getting it on the lowest Vodaphone contract, 12m @ £25, then cancelling it straight away as I don't need another contract. Vodaphone then work out the settlement figure at the monthly cost without VAT, as they are not providing a service for the remaining months. This would be £288, with Quidco included and allowing two months contract at full price to ensure it tracks properly.
My question is: will Dialaphone try to do some kind of clawback (in regards to the phone subsidy) as I have broken the contract early (I'm sure some retailers used to do this) and they may not receive their full commission?
