MarcStam - welcome to Hot UK Deals!

It may be worth totalling the minimum commitment of this contract, as some recent deal postings have allowed people to buy a contract, just to get a cheaper phone than sim free etc. Plus, it allows people to work out what they are letting themselves in for, financially.

There is also cashback available from certain sites, as long as users don't click through to the networks site first, as this leaves cookies. See links to cashback - £80 potentially on this phone and Orange.

There's some information here on how to post a photo onto your deal, so that the post reflects what's on offer - hotukdeals.com/fee…598

Otherwise, generally well done and congratulations on your first post!

Total cost, quick fag packet calculation is 18 x 25 = £450

There is £80 potential cashback from Quidco for this if available directly from Orange, but this deal is posted as via Phones4U

If anyone finds if via Orange direct, here are the links- quidco.com/mob…ge/
Similarly, £80 from Topcashback - topcashback.co.uk/ora…ge/

Edited - had overlooked that this is via Phones4U, and wasn't direct from the network.

snap and hi

Though, if the cashback does get paid - and that's a big If, then it would £370

good price

schizoboy - thanks for adding the update - I'd overlooked the fact this is from phones 4u, and had searched under orange, thus had added some misleading info.

If it's available from Orange with same stuff, then it's likely to be better to go direct, due to higher cashback.

Seems a great deal!

the o2 deal is loads cheaper @£20 x 18months

Have you got a link? They are chargng 89 quid for the phone and 35 a month on the o2 site for a similar contract!

It was via Dialaphone - Just search on desire.

Still need a data plan on that tarriff though which is £10 mth..... so add £180 more to compare

not for me tbh, i unlocking for free for my remainder of orange contract and 02 becums my sons contract with cheap fone, so gd deal for me it is

Uncanny! I got this deal earlier today over the phone. I phoned up mainly to ask about stock levels, and to ask if it was unbranded or not. At the time I was on the phone the stock went down from 3 to 1 to none, as it's a live system they use. Fortunately 1 came back into the system and I claimed it. I told him about quidco, and he said if you get it online then we might not have stock for a few days yet, but he had me one there ready and waiting on the system. So I said if you can match the Quidco (£35) then I'd do it there and then. Without further ado he said the only way he could do it would be to give me an automatic £30 cheque-back after 28 days. So I snapped his hand off.

Should be getting delivery Thursday - i'm so excited i'm like a schoolkid!! As for being unbranded he said sometimes they are, sometimes they aren't. Unfortunately because it's being sent 'apparently' from Orange direct then i'm guessing it will be branded :-(

Anyway, for what it's worth, this deal has already been posted here> hotukdeals.com/dea…10/ but i've still voted hot regardless.

It's also only 100mins, no data, so not really a comparison. This is the best deal I've seen on an 18 month desire, with this level of minutes, internet and unlimited texts

This deal was posted on here a few weeks ago but the phone went out of stock.

It came back up over the weekend. I ordered on Mon morning and quidco has tracked at £35 and the phone is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. For me this is better than the O2 deal as the Orange contract will cover my usage. Phone may be cheaper on O2 deal, but there is the added cost of purchasing a sim only deal on top of that.

I got on phone to ask them if I could cancel today as there was no doubt in my mind that they were going to send out a branded handset. Instead she convinced me by saying that she'd give me another £30 chequeback, making it £60 now! So now taking that into consideration my contract is now equivalent of £21.67 p/m which makes knowing that it's Orange branded more bearable.

What are the biggest problems of the handset being Orange branded anyway? I did ask her if debranding the phone myself would make the warranty null and void, and she said she didn't think so. But I still think it would.

Just noticed this is now -7? Why? This is a very good deal. Or is it simply because the deal has been posted previously?
