Does the mortgage outlay really warrant this over the S2?
Cold, only £34 p month at Three , free S3, 2000 mins unlimited txts n data 3000 3-3 mins.
+ £110 topcashback.
Seems that every possible deal has already been posted individually; or am I suffering from S3 overdose

Sorry, I missed the vital one! Added to the list

No really hot deals.
The mind boggles.... I personally think you need to get your head examined if you spend such a ridiculous amount on a phone!
nice info, thanks
get an s2 - better as perfect size for a smartphone and costs half as much
Thanks for the effort taken!
s2 is best as s3 looks terrible,

Ive just upgraded to the note as Im needing a bigger screen
Heat for effort sir

Thanks for the effort taken!


no probs. lets just hope it goes hot! *hint hint*
Heat for the trouble you went through for fellow hukders, some people are just unappreciative, that aside, I think the three deal is the best, maybe its not the cheapest, but its the the only one that gives you so much allowance, I've been with three for over five years, never had a problem with the signal, whenever I've had a problem, its allways been resolved, basically I can't fault them, also with this tariff you truly get unlimited data (tethering included?) If I'm not mistaken.

Your lucky.. I had nothing but problems, full signal one day , no signal next day so on and so forth..But to their credit after 6 months of torture they cancelled my contract because a mast was down ....free of charge and let me keep the phone....A lot of complaining and phone calls ..put me off this lot.
Standard contract prices really. Nothing to see here.

What this one mentioned above?

3) Three- 2000mins, 5000 Three-to-Three mins, 5000 Texts, Unlimited Internet
£34/Month for 24 Months - £110.09 Quidco
@ Three
Total Cost: £816 - £110.09 Quidco
Link: three.co.uk/Dis…394
Contender for let down of the year.. Just get the rival
voted cold to counteract those giving it heat for failing to understand how this site works and giving heat for wrongly creating a list with some awful deals in
Agree with most ugly phone
i'll wait for s3 to arrive and then get myself a bargain s2 at the beginning of June...
Not so hot
Utter nonsense. Read the internet people. Most networks have yet to confirm pricing. COLD
Probably the best phone out there but not a HotUKDeal and I thought Apple was over-priced.
Look forward to the massive price crash on the S2!
Altho the Three £34pm deal is probably best with quidco, you cant order it from their website until the 30th
Thanks for taking time to compile and share the list. Maybe not a post for the hukd purists but for the occasional mega launch like the s3, I think folks will find it useful.
heat for effort. Going off at a tangent I still find it difficult to believe / understand that people will spend £400 per annun to have a phone / mini computer in their pocket. Despite the current economically difficult times there are still a lot of people still out there with money to burn.
Sure it is a good phone though and better than the iphone!
wow no coments on how the iphone is better?? oO
Nice summery of the best deals. Thanks a ton.

3 is def tempting. Lifelong iPhone user but tempted with SIII with smaller than Note and bigger than the Apple.
great-deals

Hotukdealers BAFFLE me sometimes, clearly to get the best out a smart phone like this you NEED the kinda mins and all you can eat data that the £34 Three deal offers.
Yet when myself and another posted the Three deal on its own it got ice cold??
Ps top cash back £110 has no £5 annual fee like quidco.
Thanks for the share, heat added!
