Well I could not believe they had this phone already at this price on pay as you go

The Nokia N97 on pay as you go for only £369.99 a bargain , so if you are not bother by not having a SIM FREE version (around £449) then this might be your best bet as long as they have coverage in your area and they pay as you go plan is very good.

I saw the deal in-store, I can not find it online. Even when they say that All their mobiles are available on Pay as you GO.

You can see all the stuff you get with their pay as you go in here

three.co.uk/Pay…net

-Free SKYPE calls
- Free MSN
- Free 3 to 3 calls
- 300 texts (or 600 texts online) when you topup £10 (you get more if you top up more.
- 150MB internet downloads

Not bad for a Pay as you go, and even if you spend all your balance on the first day you still gett all the freebies for 90 days. Then just topup again and you get them again.

£10 gives you about 50 min (20p each minute anytime any network) so not bad if you don't make many calls

I've got it in contract but I know some people prefer to get them in pay as you go.

Therefore I thought is a good price. For whoever is looking for it, this might be an option.

Anyone know if it can be unlocked.. lots of issues with this model at the moment - hopefully Nokias latest firmware is sorting them out

All that money for just a phone...CRAZY!!

I asked around the local shops and 3 of them said they can do it for £15, £25 and £35 but the annoying thing is that in all of them they had to keep the phone for like 2 or 3 days wihch is a no no, especially with a phone with 32GB where you have so much stuff.

Some other shops they said to check again next week, I think within a month it should be easy to do. I will try again towards the end of the month.

But to be honest their Pay as you go deal is very good, so having it locked with them is not that bad (as long as you have reception).

Yes I know, some other people spend money in CARS, computers, games consoles, women, drugs, alcohol, holidays, houses, TVs, etc, it's a crazy world out there.

Keep all the money in a matress :-D :thumbsup:

I have to admit is an expensive phone but if you want one and you can afford it them why not ?

these any good? I got the iphone 3gs, which is the sh*t. And just wondered if these were any good, went off nokia phones when all other manufacturers seemed to embrace colour screens, and left nokia lagging way behind.

I saw this before, good price for the phone. Only things is we can't upgrade firmware on 3 n97(from one of the online reviews). just waiting for some other networks to start on pay as you go.

The upgrade of the firmware from Nokia was available on the first day of July . The 3 version of the firmware was released about 2 to 3 weeks later. I have the latest version of the firmware on my 3 N97

for the guy asking whether this phone is better than the iphone. Let me just tell you one thing if you text or chat a lot or browse a lot the keyboard is a huge bonus this message it's been writing on my phone. Can you do that with the iphone. i know that i could not do it. touchscreen keyboard are not for me.
Both phone pretty much do the same and boths have their issues but they also have their benefits. i think they are far from perfect but they are very good though

I hope this helps

Judging from the reviews I've seen, it's not even worth £199.

However maybe there will be firmware updates to fix all the flaws.

There is also a "N97 mini" phone coming, according to rumours. A smaller version of the same device.

I honstly accepts your words. Basically I want a phone and video player . Iphone will fulfill both of my reuirement. But as gathering the information , let it be separate , so now I am going for nokia n97 for phone and archos 705 (80 GB) as my video player.

Thanks for the comments.
