Been looking for a new phone as my current one was starting to go faulty. I was on the o2 simplicity contract (£19.58 a month - 600 mins, 1000 texts and unlimited internet) I was just looking to buy a new phone on PAYG and put my sim in but came across this deal in Carphone Warehouse:

Orange Dolphin30 contract (24 months)
600 minutes
Unlimited texts
500MB internet usage
Free Nokia 6600i slide (or Nokia 6700 or Samsung Tocco lite (pink or black))

Should cost £30/month but currently being offered with £10 bill credit (NOT cashback) each month for the whole 24 months

This was instore only, not available online

I wasn't keen on taking a 24 month contract but it was the best deal I could find and can only see me regretting it if o2 lower the price of the simplicity

OR

Go to mobiles.co.uk/nok…tml and get the above deal PLUS either of these offers:

17 months haf price line rental
£60 cashback
Free Nintendo Wii Fit
Free Jawbone headset
Free Sony DAB radio

- thanks graybags

Go to mobiles.co.uk, and you can get this deal with quite a bit of cashback thrown in on top. Got Samsung's Tocco Ultra on the deal - and I'm a happy boy.

all 24 month deals are cold cold cold afaik.
There's very little chance that a phone will be working/useable/in date in two years time....

LOL - do you play rugby with them or something?

My phone is about 5 years old and has no problems at all. Sometimes I think that this is a shame 'cos I sometimes fancy a change for chang'e sake. ;-)

Some phones just do not have the build that's required to last, which is wrong, as it means we're becoming more of a disposable society. Plus, it's easy to drop them, have some damage, new features come out etc. Sometimes it's not worth claiming on insurance either, or issues are not covered, when they try to wriggle out of responsiblity.

Otherwise, some people just like new things, don't like locking themselves into long financial commitments, when jobs etc are no longer as certain as they were. I'm in the latter, I prefer the shorter term certainty of what I'm signing up for. Tariffs etc are changing so constantly - my current tariff has a fixed no of minutes/texts, but the same one today has unlimited elements, but contracts are usually restrictive about when you can change, as well as what tariff you are permitted to change to, without financial penalty.

The contract terms that mobile companies make you commit to are a major reason that many do not want to sign long term agreements - I really don't. Plus millions of us are strapped for cash, and will get things with discounts etc, only when they're really good and likely to follow through with cashback, despite the gigantic hurdles that many put up to deter/prevent people claiming.

That said, for a few minutes and texts a month, and needing nothing else, I'll use a phone for as long as it lasts, and SIM only is good for this, once the minimum contract has finished.

Same for me - NO to 24 months contracts. End of.

Phones were stronger made 5 years ago. Get a new one and it will last a year, if you are lucky.
