I think this is the best deal for a Nokia N96 around. Others may not, so let's see what beats this.

Dolphin £35 at £35 month. 600 any time, any network minutes every month plus Unlimited Text Messages.

(DUCKY ADDS: Possibly also a free alarm clock using the vocuher code posted here on HUKD).

This offer is conditional upon you entering into an insurance contract which you may cancel at any time. (Ducky adds that you should probably cancel this at the first available oppertunity, as it can be really expensive otherwise).

Plus 8GB Memory Card
You'll also receive an 8GB Memory Card, allowing you to store all your favourites songs for hours of music listening fun!

Plus Free Magic Number
With this great deal you will also be entitled to unlimited free calls anytime to your nominated Orange Magic Number! Customers can nominate one Magic Number up front, and another every 6 months - there is no limit to the number of Magic Numbers you can have! To register your Magic Number please call customer services on 150 or register online at orange.co.uk/you…unt.

And if you are going to vote cold, at least explain why so I and others can understand, please !

If this is direct from the Nokia site, they are twined with Dial A Phone. What is this company like?

I didn't know it had anything to do with Dial-a-Phone, but now you've said that, the Nokia website link does resemble the DAP one.

I'm not sure what company you are referring to. Nokia or Orange ?

Might as well go through ]Dialaphone then and get £60 Quidco.
I bought my N95 8GB on O2 through them with no problem at all. All my bills come direct from O2.

I was looking about getting the Nokia E90 from them, but i have read some horrid reviews on the net.

it is cheaper in three

I currently use a nokia 6300 and im thinking of upgrading to the N96 mainly because of the novelty factor - my main concern is size? for those of you that have lived with the n95 is it ok?
I am a farmer and have a active outdoor life.

As above, this is actually a Dial-A-Phone deal. I have amended the deal so it's with Dial-A-Phone and it has a direct link to the DAP site. You can also get £60 QuidCo, so I'm adding that to the OP/Title and some info on the tariff.

Good find. Voted hot.

I still think the N96 on Vodafone is a great deal.

900 Anytime minutes, Unlimited text, Mobile Internet & Email for £45 a month but with Quidco you get £90 back making it £35 a month for 9 months and then with Vodafone you can downgrade the tariff after 9 months to ££35 a month with 600 anytime minutes and unlimited texts for the remaining 9 months still with free mobile Internet and email. Also I think Vodafone is a better network overall.

Just my opinion.

Ah, but if you include QuidCo on this it's even cheaper. Also - as with all cashback sites - QuidCo isn't always guaranteed.

Yep thats a much better deal in my eyes.

However i'd leave getting this phone for month or two as i imagine they'll drop the prices for a couple of reasons 1) the initial rush of purchases from the gadget freaks will have died of and 2) they'll be launching christmas offers.

Could someone tell me how to order this deal with quidco? I've never used it before. I registered on there and clicked through to dialaphone via quidco but this deal isn't available, it says that the phone is £29.99. It's only when I click the link on here for the site that the phone is free.

Help please!

just called them regarding the mobile internet and you can buy a bolt on from orange for £5 per month for unlimited usage

Anyone know if Orange have put their horrible Homescreen on this instead of the generic firmware?

apparently its not and the dial-a-phone representative lied, its actually 7.50

Could anyone answer this question for me please? Want to order the phone asap! Thanks

It's worth pointing out that in lots of ways this is a worse phone than the N95 8GB it replaces. It's a slower CPU, worse battery, no 3d acceleration for apps, no Voip (so kiss Skype goodbye) etc.

If you're looking at one of these an N95 8GB is now dirt cheap so at least consider it.

I think I'm going to stick with my N95 8GB.

Seriously hard choice to make, but it's a bit like XP & Vista. I think XP is better, but vista has the new fancier features. I think the same will happen here - being that the N95 8GB will be the faster phone with only a few extra features. It certainly looks nicer than the N95 8GB, but I'm not too fussed about that.

I stand to be corrected, but I could not see that this was eligible for Quidco when I posted. It is Ducky that says you can, but the website you go to to order is a Nokia website, NOT Dial-a-Phone.
I would forget the Quidco option in my honest opinion.

I have this tariff on my N95 from orange, and whilst it sounds pretty good, the call charges for 0845 numbers and things like that are realllllllly high. my bills usually come to around £50-£60 per month, even though i don't go over the text limit or the call limit. (I should say that I pay an extra £5 for web access at evenings and weekends - this is where the vodafone deal is probably better if it's anytime unlimited web access)

and no I don't phone dodgy numbers in phone booths ;-)

When the N95 was launched it had no mention of the accelerometer, and no one knew it existed on the phone until Nokia released a little app with a rolling ball. So I would assume (but not promise) that the N96 will also have this feature.

worst CPU and battery life? that sucks big time!

Without sounding like an idiot or having bad karma for posting a deal I can't believe my post of the N96 deal was SO COLD and this has received some decent heat.

This is why I thought the one I found was good.

£45 a month line rental for 9 months = £405 + £90 cashback (Quidco) = £315 for 9 months

The remaining 9 months can be put to £35 a month (downgrade tariff) = £315 for remaining 9 months

The first 9 months you get 900 mins, unlimited text and internet and email, the remaining 9 months you still get 600 mins, unlimited text and email.

Or for 12 months you can get the N96 for free on £45 a month tariff, £90 cashback making the first 9 months £35 and then downgrade the tariff for the last 3 months. No unlimited text or internet on the 12 months though. But you do get the phone for free doing it this way, rather than the £200 asking price from Voda on a £35 a month tariff

This is direct through Vodafone as well, not an affiliate company

No problem. I'll probably order it through quidco anyway as even though the phone is £30 you still get £60 cashback from quido. Thanks for replying

shop.vodafone.co.uk/mob…96/

Free on 12 months, £45 a month

£200 on £35 a month

EDIT. Vodafone have changed this since I ordered.

I thought it seemed a good deal on 12 months, no one agreed though!

there is no quidco cashback from the link provided. As mentioned by someone else if you manually find deal on dialaphone website the phone costs you £29.99 on dolphin £35pm the phone is free on canary £40pm

Its just a shame that the Orange network is absoultely aweful, even with 3G phones it drops out at any given moment!

Would have been great if it was free on 12m £35 contract. Seems like you got lucky!

Never had a problem with orange's signal dropping out , ive been with them for 5 years now , you can probably get rid of the orange menus etc by changing the product code via nemesis service suite , you can always change the product code back if the phone needs to be returned , no need to flash anything just use nokias own update software. Very probably a nice phone when theyve done a revision or two of the firmware. Deals isnt bad i suppose , we get ripped off on mobile prices anyway.

Well that's misleading! Although it's true there is no skype, why would you buy an expensive phone on an expensive tarrif if you use skype all the time?

It is a slightly slower CPU, but by all reviews so far the menus and applications are now faster.

The Battery is the exact same, however, they've increased efficiency and now the battery will last even longer

Plus points over the N95 is that it now has 16GB internal memory and upto 32GB can be added, the software is no longer slow/buggy. There is an additional LED for low lighting camera situations, the BBC iPlayer can now be used on the phone. It's better looking and the slider feels more robust.

EDIT - I'd say a better deal, for those who use more minutes is, getting the N96 from O2 via Mobiles.co.uk (£40 QuidCo) on the £45pm, 1200 mins + Unlimited texts (think you get a free bolt on with O2 as well) you can get 8 months at half price = £590 (with cashback) total over 18 months as opposed to £550 above, but with an extra 10,800 minutes..(0.003p per min)

does anybody know if they are easy to unlock :thumbsup:

you might get unlocked one from orange if they were in a hurry to get them out to customers first 10,000 may not be locked , get one from car phone warehouse on 02 and it will be unlocked. If the N96 is branded orange as in N96e then forget it.

TBH if anyone gets a contract phone from any company and there is network lock on the phone RETURN it within the first 7-14 days and tell whoever you bought it off Exactly why you are returning it, co's some nobhead locked it and get it from another company. I have never had a locked phone from carphoneW on 02.

Also, Vodafone don't lock their phones

No, it was free on the £45 a month tariff for 12 months, but the deal also had £90 cashback via quidco, therefore the first 9 months with the cashback teken off make it £35 a month. After 9 months you can downgrade to a £35 a month tariff for the remaining 3 months.

To me it seemed like a cheap way to get the phone and 600 mins and 500 texts wasn't so bad

really want an N96. Been with orange for a while and am due an upgrade. Anyone know if orange will be doing them direct? Also been ages since i was with vodafone and back then the net was "their" net. A walled garden. Have they since opened it up?
