Cheapest deal I've found for this phone on Three's 'One Plan' (aptly named!)
You get the usual 2000 mins - 5000 texts - unlimited data + tethering & hopefully 4g by the end of this year included in the same plan.

It's via an affiliate link (mobilephonechecker.co.uk) and through a third party website (Affordable mobiles), works out to £33.50 a month over the 24 month period, £2.50 cheaper than going directly with Three.

I know this might not suit everybody but for the heavy users out there it's a pretty good deal.
Personally I feel having limited data is quite restrictive especially if you're getting a top end smartphone, can imagine blinkfeed and other sense 5 apps eating up your allowance in a hurry. Not a big fan of the speed caps and fair use policies either and I think only Three does a 'truly unlimited' and unrestricted data plan.

They're also giving away an HTC Media link HD free for a limited period, retails for £80 but don't think I'd ever spend that much on a glorified MHL connector...wouldn't mind getting one for free though!

Easily the best phone available. The build quality is stunning. Everyone I've shown my phone to has been blown away by the hardware and new Sense software. Highly recommended.

Forgot to mention that HTC are updating the firmware this month and promise more timely Android updates. Talking of security, Apple havent exactly excelled in this area have they?

What a clueless idiot.

Tempted by this deal seeing that its the best HTC one deal I've seen at the minute and including the free media HD link.

My iPhone 4 contract is due for renewal at the end of the month so if this is still available then I will go for it as I doubt 3 will offer me the same deal via their retentions

or £26 per month (£29.99 phone) with 500 minutes, unlimited texts & internet on t-mobile, I went for this deal.

Cashback is £40 via TCB or Quidco, but since it's through an affiliate link I doubt they'll pay out. If you go directly via TCB / Quidco it shows £35 pm.

Yup, saw that one as well. Was very tempted as I don't use that many minutes and it works out approx £6 a month cheaper, but the trade-off is they don't "officially" allow tethering, have some sort of speed cap and fair use policy and also don't think they'll be adding 4g on the same plan as they're doing it with EE. Still a killer deal.

I fully agree, I don't know about others, but although Three are excellent price wise, I still do have issues with their overall signal coverage, whilst with T-Mobile, I'd rather have a little 2G occasionally and actually get signal for texts/phone calls.

amazing phone. I went for my deal on orange. 18 months, free phone.

After getting bored of my Galaxy S3 after only 6 months, I order this phone on Monday, but the 18 month/free phone deal with Orange won me over.

Still a good deal though

Was reading up about it - impressive, aside from the problems people have with the camera being not quite up to scratch.

There's a large thread on XDA developers showing image results. Bit of a shame.

Looks good - and I'm an iPhone fan

I read the thread which contains hundreds of opinions - and image examples.

It was generally concluded that this 4MP camera falls short and no amount of software will remedy it.

Good deal, but its a fairly small difference, I would still prefer to go with Three directly, no upfront and £60 cashback via tcb.

I am on t-mobile and I wouldn't even dream of using them based on their 'unlimited' internet. I am regularly capped by their fair use policy and they cut out everything bar browsing/email, no app downloading, no youtube. On top of this I get dire speeds even with full bars of 3g which suggests a very clogged up network.

To allow tethering on a truly unlimited plan is well worth the money, other companies dont come close to offering this.

if you don't have a landline then I guess its easy enough to use an hour a day on calls?

Hi mate, could you possibly send me a link to where you got an 18 month contract with Orange please. How much was it?

Thanks!

where does it say tethering - if it doesnt saying tethering - 3 can restrict your internet

first quality android phone hardware. I will go for it for the premium feel. hot, thanx op.

Only Android phone that comes close to the design and build quality of the iPhone.

The best Android phone on the market by a mile.

Typing this on my HTC ONE the fastest phone on the market today, would highly reccomend the phone but three is an awful network

Pricey stuff.

Glad I got mine on an 18 month contract. I will upgrade to 4G on a sim-only plan at the end of that, at which time I imagine 4G plans will be much better value.

The one plan sim only with the same allowances is £25 a month, if I bought this and sold the phone for around £500 I'd end up with the same contract for £14ish a month, is it worth the effort? All I want is ayce data and 600-1000mins for a good price, don't care about the phone.

I ordered this phone yesterday. Orange Panther 36 18 months £28 per month after jumping through the redemption hoops and a possible £100 quidco back, although reading reviews not holding my breath on that from Dialaphone. I appreciate this is more minuets, data etcbut just cant deal with 24 months. Voted hot though as it seems a good deal. .

I have one and its crackinnnnnnnn!

Its a keeper!!

Ya, I guess if TCB/Quidco pays then going direct with Three works out similar, just missing out on the Media link. I'm already with Three so wasn't sure they'll pay out the cashback as I think it's only for new customers. But at least they have it in stock right now!! I'm starting to lose patience

Been using this phone for just over a week (moved from an S3).

It really is the mutts nutz. The camera is really good imo, its a phone camera at the end of the day.

The speakers are brilliant but the screen is unreal, watched The Avengers with my beats plugged in and it was fantastic.

grow up, it is the One plan, do you know what it means?

dont expect this anytime soon.

Hot for me. Had a Desire HD then moved onto a Sensation, loved both.
Recently bought a Galaxy S3 and although I like it I feel more comfortable using HTC phones. HTC Sense and all that.
Thinking of getting rid of the S3 and getting the HTC One.

Got my One from Three last week, love it... Although I went directly with them and got the £60 cash back instead (but with zero up front cost).

Why? I ordered mine from Vodafone on Thursday and it arrived Yesterday. Not too long especially as Friday and Monday were Bank Holidays. So the companies must be getting the stock in.

Also must add i am loving this phone.
