Looks to me like a very good phone with the benefits of a normal phone + Skype.

You must go through Quidco to get £20 off, 3 seems good for tracking their payments.

Cheapest elsewhere is £34.99 @ Play.com.

The £20 quidco is on a contract - not PAYG.

The £20 quidco is on a contract - not PAYG.




it say on Quidco site £20 for skype doesnt say it has to b contract , further down all the contract amounts are listed so i think it is any skype phone

I think its a missed opportunity that this phone does not work wirelessly for roaming.

Hot all the same though.

£12 for PAYG (per transaction, not per phone basis)

Quidco is £12.

do you have to Top up every 30 days to use Skype for free.

can it be unlocked ?

I would not have thought so as if your using SKYPE to SKYPE then it's free to use so cannot see them trying to force you into topping up every 30 days but I am a SKYP virgin so dont know 100% but am sure someone will clear it up

Doesn't work with all the Skype features, I believe a standard call is made which is then forwarded onto Skype (correct me if I'm wrong) not sure if Skype in / out work either (I know at least one doesn't)

according to three, if someone is calling from a skype account or if you use the skype function then it is free, if its from a mobile they will be charged accordingly.

can someone clear up quidco for this, i am assuming it will be £20 as it states Skype phone

No , Skype only works on this phone if you top up £10 at least once per month so Skype lasts for 30 days each time you top up, if you dont top up you dont get Skype, Simple, I got the phone for me and my g/f so it's good for us but what i need to know is if i can use Skype to Skype abroad with the same Standard UK Handsets? Anyone know exactly?

Not sure whether you mean calling abroad or from abroad

You can call anybody who is on Skype, regardless of where they are from free if you are in the UK. If you are abroad then it will not work

yep i have the phone and you need to top up

theres A massive forum about this partular phone, ill try to find it for ya mark

The Quidco is definitely £12 as posted by Emasu.

You need a £10 top up every 30 days for Skype to work - works by the the first leg of the Skype call being routed over the 3 network, so without the top up no Skype.

The Skype calls are only Skype to Skype (no Skype out or in - this is supposed to be available later this year). The calls can be to anywhere in the world as long as its a Skype call.
As for using abroad - you can use the Skype functionality where 3 has sister networks - Denmark,Italy,Australia and three or four others.

well quidco themselves have said it should £20

If I go for the PAYG version, can I use my existing 3 contract SIM on this device (I think I can use it), but the question is that will I be able to use skype then? Logically, I am using a three contract SIM. Has some one tried this?

Yep your contract sim will work in the payg phone. SKYPE is free to use on contract phones altough you maybe subject to a fair usage thingy).
