Seems like a good deal to me. I've been looking for one like this and although there are a few, there doesn't seem to be many that offer contracts over 18 months with unlimited internet for less than £30 pm.

I would challenge anyone to find a better deal

The website is a clone of dialaphone. And I would argue that it's better to purchase from DAP given the higher quidco at £50 and potentially youatwork cashback of £45. :roll:

Virgin £18, unlimited web plus mins and texts, 18 months....but phone choice is limited the best being the nokia 5800...do i win the challenge????

Do you win the challenge? Hmmm android vs s60. In a word, NO!

is the virgin free web or could it be 30p a day !

Hmmmm 20-50 apps for android and 1000's for s60.....makes me a winner....:thumbsup:

Have to say - looks like a decent price and a decent deal - Android is the way to go now.

Just bought G2 instead of Compact V on eBay, was it a right choice? Well anyone could help me with 30 days pay monthly with unlimited data? I do not care about minutes, 50 is enough! Please any suggestions?

G2 is the HTV hero but in black and been suffered from the t-mobile branding.

02 do a pretty good deal, £19.58 + £23.33 quidco, but u better make sure the g2 is unlocked.

is a pretty good deal for the phone.

why are u guys comparing diffferent phones, the price of the phone will reflect the price of the contract so of course ure gonna get more on a 5800.. its a cheaper phone O_o

I would have went for this deal if i wasn't waiting for the Pro Three.

Nice find:thumbsup:

Better? Depends on your attitude towards the intricacies of monthly costs versus cashback return (or not).
Cheaper for same phone / network / mins / txts / net? Most definitely:
£28.25 / month equivalent cost via Beepy, and that's before £40 Quidco.
£28.75 from BuyMobilePhones, again without taking additional £20 Quidco cashback into account.

Does the OP deal take into account the VAT rise scheduled for Jan 2010?

All these deals are priced nearasdammit the same - just couldn't resist rising to the challenge :whistling:
OP's deal would be my choice, or a slight variation with auto-cashback rather than the redemption malarkey.

Can't find the deals you are on about tbh. Not that I think they don't exist, but this is a much better deal than those previously listed. All the other ones either have 24m contracrs, or no internet, or reduced mins/texts. This is everything you need for a 'reasonable price'

Looks good! Nice deal. :thumbsup:

You can do the math.

I would say that you are clutching at straws when you say that they are better deals. You have to initially pay £45 a month! If you could afford that in the first place you might as well go for the iphone.

On another note, how does the redemption thing work if you don't pay the extra £1.50 for itemised billing?

Qualified by my earlier statement of
"Better? Depends on your attitude towards the intricacies of monthly costs versus cashback return (or not).... Cheaper...Most definitely" (cos it's a lower monthly cost).

Not aware that itemised billing is a pre-requisite, or do you mean paper billing?
Cahback eleigibility criteria varies from company to company but generally all the vendor will ask to see is formal doc itemising name, address, mobile number, contract cost - typically all contained on 1st page of Orange bill (unless Orange have a special promo page prior to the bill proper).

Also note that I previously stated:
"OP's deal would be my choice..." :thumbsup:

What I mean is - In order to claim my redemption, do I have to have paper billing (which costs £1.50 pm) or can I do it another way?

If I do have to have it, the deal will be nowhere near as attractive with an extra £27 to be shelled out over the 18 months.

Oh and I get what you mean about the 'cheaper' thing. I'll give it to you on that basis

Another thing that I noticed is that the unlimited internet isn't quite unlimited!! It says that its subject to a 500mb pm FUP. WTF is all that about?

This phone should be connected to the net all the time to make the most of it. Coupled with the fact that you are gonna want to stream TV programmes and stuff like that, is 500mb enough?

Can anyone clarify whether it will be suitable or not?

Not for TV streaming it wont...in fact 500mb is quite low but others seem to top off at 1gb....not sure about o2 though??

The black version on the dialtosave website, going through a company called Beepy (never heard of them).

£23.89 per month
Black HTC Hero
700 minutes
Unlimited SMS
1GB data
18 month contract with T-Mobile

Also, there is £40 Quidco (Beepy) which would work out at £21.67 per month (Life of the contract is £430 without Quidco, £390 with).

So £21.67 wins. Although it's T-Mobile and they charge for VPS. And there are a few hundred less minutes.
