Unlike the o2 contract (good price if you want to use as PAYG), this monthly contract with T-Mobile is pretty decent (if you need more mins/texts look below)
____________________________________

How it works:
Phone - £99.99
Per month for 24 months - £20.43
Cashback with TopCashBack - £45.45

((20.43x24)+99.99-45.45) / 24 = £22.66 / month

***TOTAL = £534.87 FOR 24 MONTHS***
____________________________________

If you need additional mins or texts (600 mins, 500 texts), you can pay a bit more @ £24.89 / month for 24 months, which works out to £597.26 for 24 months.

It is but only if you plan to use another SIM. The contract itself is useless.

looks pretty good to me... although I've gone for the O2 deal, linked above, it works out, using my own contract sim (600mins 500texts 3GB data 7.50 p/m) ~ £490.00 over the two years

I have one of those T-Mobile sim-only deals from a few months ago but my only concern is that at the end of the 12 month contract period you may not be able to continue at that price and the discount will be removed reverting to normal price.

This looks like a decent deal, I ordered a desire hd from affordable mobiles a week or 2 ago (was on hotukdeals) of course being out of stock they still havent sent it. Do you reckon they'll let me cancel it? I'm really tempted to get one of these! I'll phone them in the morning!

how did u get it to be £4.90 iam on the tmobile 7.50 too

outright
working it out =£400 phone + 24*7.50 = £580

or
per month
13.50 per month *24 +£150 for phone =474 + 24*7.50=£654

can you let me know thanks

I'm on that T-Mobile deal too. I'm guessing the way he worked it out was:
13.50 x 3 months = £40.50 until £90 cashback pays out (hopefully)
then £10 x 21 months = £210
then £7.50 x 24 months = £180
and finally £150 for the phone

40.5 + 210 + 180 + 150 - 90 = £490.50

That said that's presuming you get to keep the £7.50 contract after the initial 12 months

Limit it like how ?

I'm be wary about buying a top range smart phone now. A new wave of superphones are about to be released which include

iPhone 5
HTC Sensation (HTC's top of the range Android phone with dual core etc.)

There's already the Desire S, Incredible S, Xperia Arc, the Tegra 2 phones etc etc

2 years is a long time to be locked in a phone contract.

T-Mobile are great apart from the issue for me that I can very rarely get any sort of signal any where.

Does it really matter that it's a 2 yr contract? What great things will the next gen phones do?

3D? Quad core (to play angry birds and facebook)? 12mp camera (with no optical zoom)? No thanks!

I'm struggling to find where it says 1 GB internet, I thought the t-mobile booster was 500mb.

Can someone help me out beofre I order. Ta.

This is a good deal if you actually want to use your phone and are in a T Mob area.

I was really tempted to go back to T-Mobile with their new Orange shared signal as the customer service was the best I have had and the prices the cheapest. Unfortunately though it only kicks in when there is ZERO T-Mob signal. My house is a 0-1 bar house so it still would not lock onto the strong orange signal.

With regards the limited 3G, to my knowledge that is when you get Internet as your free booster. If you go for a internet contract and a different booster then you are fine, but their prices become more like those of O2, Voda and Orange. I am normally by WiFi in work or home so it isn't a deal breaker for me, but if you don't have broadband I would avoid.

Even if they ignore you and send it anyway, you still have 14 days to return it without any commitments because of the distance selling regulation. Just send it straight back without opening it.

I've been with T-Mobile on their regular web 'n' walk tariff for the last 3.5 years and I've had nothing but phenomenal speeds off my HSDPA enabled handset. Sure you're not on a restricted tariff? Could even be your handset itself that's the bottleneck. I get even faster speeds on my laptop when I connect using my mobile as a modem. Believe it or not I'm still using the Nokia N82! You do however need to make sure you're phone is set up to receive UMTS and that you're in range of a 3.5G (HSDPA) signal. In London I've never ever had a problem and now that they've merged with orange it's even better.

Yes but the Galaxy S II 'IS' one of the 4 phones to be released with dual core processors (Samsung Galaxy S2, LG Optimus, Motorola ATrix 4G, HTC Sensation) spec wise they're pretty much neck and neck but the reviewers seem to have the Galaxy S2 ahead. As for the other phones you mentioned (Desire S, Incredible S, Xperia Arc) they're not dual core and only slight revisions of older phones.

I agree with you on the 24 months (2 years) contract being a long time. I find them offensive and unnecessary; to be honest they make my skin crawl. See the major networks are trying to push us to commit to ever longer contracts by enticing us with more minutes and cheaper phones. Problem is they do this only to then remove the option of going back. Also if you notice, what they offer now on the 24 month tariffs in the way of minutes and credit towards a new phone, they used to offer on the 18 months and even on the 12 months before that.

With the great deals to be had on PAYG or rolling monthly contracts or even the sim only 12 months as posted on this site, why on earth would anyone commit to 2 years..you can even buy the latest phones off people that have them as unwanted upgrades for between 50-60% of their rrp (depending on the popularity of the phone and how long its been since release) Example I'm certain that I'll be able to buy an unwanted upgrade off someone (galaxy s 2) in a couple of weeks (as they start to flood the market) or so (unlocked, boxed and sealed) for £300, and if you pair that with one of those great PAYG or rolling contracts deals, you'll find your way better off AND without a pathetic contract.

Hopping from 12 to 18 to 24 which tomorrow will become 36 months for more minutes and more options on free phones is damaging to the consumer in the long run because the objective is to obligate us for longer for less. And that requires our consent. Goes like this:

For those of you wanting to renew your old 12 month or 18 month tariffs, with certain networks they won't even allow you to take the top end phones without shifting to a 24 month tariff

I'm not sure I agree - I have had t-mob for over a year and prior to the merge with orange, I thought they were fantastic (bar some reception issues in some areas not london). Ever since the merge, the service seems to have cut down to the lowest common denominator ie. Orange - they've cut the net down to a measly 500mb (from 1-3GB) and half the time my signal goes to orange even if im in a known t-mob area so I lose the web connectivity.

Please put the total amount in the deal, not the monthly.

I don't know where you're looking but if you're searching retailers the 10% you mentioned certainly will hold true. What I'm talking about is the large pool of people that receive free phones for renewing their contract that then decide to sell them on. In deed I did it myself on the with the originally Galaxy S I received for extending my second line 9 months back. I think the retail value at the time was around £500 too and sold it for £320. Bare in mind that was within 4 days of it being released. Also helped friends buy HTC Desires a few weeks after release - again for 60% off their retail value..in much the same way..ebay is ok if you can give them cash on collection but you need to agree a deal with someone early on before the bids start flooding in.

A bit of a generalisation there. It depends on what you want/need. If you need 20,000 minutes, 200,000 sms and 20gb data, then you simply don't vote on the deal, as it isn't useful to you. You certainly don't vote it cold.

I considered this deal, but ended up with the O2 linked above as it worked out nearly £5 per month cheaper and fit my needs. It doesn't mean I'm going to vote this deal cold.

If you buy the phone for £300.00 and then add your great PAYG/ rolling contract deal to it for say £10.00 per month you end up paying the following over two years:

£300.00 + £240 (24 x £10.00) = £540.00

Almost the same as if I did the deal above. Only difference is you hard to fork out £300.00 of your hard earned cash and I got what you could class as an interest free loan.

Now lets say after 12 months you are tired of your old smart phone and decide to sell it for say £100.00 and pull another £200.00 out of your pocket to buy the latest and greatest smart phone.

Guess what I can also sell my old smart phone and buy the new latest and greatest smart phone.

So after 24 months we have both had two of the latest and greatest smart phones and have spent around the same amount off money. And I have not been struck dead because I entered into the dreaded 24 month contract.

Why not wait until 2015, I hear there are some super superphones coming out then.

Or maybe it would be best to leave it until 2022 just to be on the safe side. Or how about 5 years after your own death?

Engadget had the following to say about the phone....

For a handset with such a broad range of standout features and specs, the Galaxy S II is remarkably easy to summarize. It's the best Android smartphone yet, but more importantly, it might well be the best smartphone, period. Of course, a 4.3-inch screen size won't suit everyone, no matter how stupendously thin the device that carries it may be, and we also can't say for sure that the Galaxy S II would justify a long-term iOS user foresaking his investment into one ecosystem and making the leap to another. Nonetheless, if you're asking us what smartphone to buy today, unconstrained by such externalities, the Galaxy S II would be the clear choice. Sometimes it's just as simple as that.

I even liked the original galaxy albeit the s.w update issues
but the plastic effect put me down

for top dollar id like myphone to feel like luxury as with anythign you pay high money for

sorry but that just my own personall opinion...im not saying the phoine is any good but then again nobody does make the perfect phone!!
