This seems like a really good deal!!! im not convinced there isnt going to be a catch!!

How much is the cheapest contract you can get?

£35 a month from what i can see, and that for unlimited texts and 500 minuted any time any network

Gosh that seems like a very good deal!

Also £30 quidco

Gosh that seems like a very good deal!



Hang on.. :roll:

18 months x £35 = £630
Quidco cashback = £30
Effective term cost = [COLOR=red]£600[/COLOR] !!!

Get a Nokia 6300 for 12 months FREE on 12 month contract @ ]Coolnewmobile + £35 Quidco profit !

Assuming you still need the Wii, you are better off by [COLOR=green]£400[/COLOR] after spending £200 on Wii and NOT taking TheLink offer

No offence intended to AngelUndercover, just exposing the marketing blurb ;-)

Wow...thanks for doing the homework edi. Totally appreciate it - no offence taken at all!!

Looks like this deal totally sucks after all.

Go ahead and delete it. Sorry folks - I thought it looked good from the email and checking out the site but I guess one had to calculate the long term costs.

P.S. Damn...I'm on T-mobile, flext 35 quid a month, motorola v3 18mth contract. Wish I'd seen that nokia 6300 offer!

These deals have been around for ages - UI've ssen them with xbox360s and laptops and all sorts on Fone-Shaq
I think they are a very expensive way of getting a free console though

I apologise to everyone :oops: ...I really should have done the calculations before posting.

I know that Wii's are hot property at the moment and it looked like a brilliant deal from the email and what I saw from the site and I figured that someone who was planning to go for a contract mobile would love to get a free wii in the bargain. Lyns was right, there had to be a catch - it was too good to be true.

plus pangya is free to play online on a pc and has been for years.also called albatross 18 im sure gamespot have the download.

then again edi's deal is only valid if you do get the cashback?

how many minutes do you get for that t-mobile contract and when did you sign up?

nearly 18mths ago, carphone warehouse, tmobile flext 35quid a month - gives me 60quids worth of texts/calls per month.

:giggle: don't laugh but I couldn't honestly tell you how many minutes it includes. I just know its 60quids worth. Ya, what a bimbo!:roll:

phone them up and tell them you deserve a new phone forthwith.flext 35 gets £180 pounds worth per month from t-mobile.not to put a downer on your day of course.

i imagine 60 quid is 600 minutes?

p.s. and that includes a new phone

does anybody know when u get the cashback on the 6300 offer vodaphone?
