I am expecting to get blasted for this, but here we go....

This deal only works if you take quidco into account, they have just increased cashback to £150 for contracts.

This deal takes a bit of hunting for, YOU MUST SELECT THE PHONE PLAN FIRST (12 month contracts require a few clicks), if you select the phone first you have no option of a 12 month contract.

You then select the Dolphin plan @ 27.41p/m, the phone then costs £146.5. This plan gives you 200 mins and 300 texts, there are other plans to choose from as well.

However quido tracks @ £150, so the phone then becomes free. I placed my orer about 1 hour ago and it has tracked the full amount already.

Total Term Cost = (12 x 27.41 + 1 x 146.5) - 150 = 325.42

I choose to add the 500mb of data for 4.89 p/m. This was the cheapest deal I could find, and I have been looking hard! Hope it helps somebody.

not really that cheap, as you can get it free on £25pm contract anyway, but good try so heat added

Would be hot if it dint break the rules and have quidco included in the price.

Where can you get it free for £25pm? is it a 12month contract too? Quite interested in getting this phone.

Cheers

yeah, I'd like to see the same too

As this phone utilises the 3g internet a lot I would question whether Orange is the best provider to go with (only included 500mb in packages when i got mine - so went with T-mobiles flext - which has 'unlimited internet')

As they are now the same company, maybe the contracts should be changing soon

Agreed, tmobile is much better (3gb d/l limit, as opposed to 500mb with orange), but for those of us with no t-mobile 3g reception, this is the best alternative.

A free Hero for £25 a month on a 12 month contract.....bull****.

I also agree that quidco should not be included in the price, but without it the deal makes no sence, hence why I included it.

Just to clear-up a common misconception on here - you'll have to go BONKERS to blow a 500Mb limit on a phone, in a month. Unless you're planning to stream live music 24/7 you won't get anywhere near it in fact.

My mate uses his iPhone for allsorts and he's yet to break 400Mb in a month and it's usually more like 150-200 - so the only reason you'd need more is if you decided to use the phone to 'tether' your laptop (and download files to that) - and Orange will give you a £5/month dongle as an existing customer so that's a much better approach anyway.

I'm also waiting for this mythical £25/month 'free' Hero which doesn't exist ofc.

Possible answer to above - BUT 24 months is the problem.

Just looking at the £150 cashback deal with Orange, which excludes Orange 5 & 10 plans. But if you choose the Blackberry Email plan at 14.39 a month for 12 months (172.68) then choose a Blackberry Curve 8520 (free on this plan), is this eligable for the cashback? Making the whole deal 22.68 for the year with unlimited internet?
