Go easy, ice-cubes.

Have to pay £40 up front for handset, but Quidco tracked at £15.

£20 off the handset itself, £10 a month off the line rental (no redemption rubbish), free 8mb broadband for duration of contract if in Orange broadband area, huge amount of minutes and texts on an 18 month contract. Magic numbers and free evening and weekend data for 2 months. Absolute steal - 4 offers in one deal!

After Quidco, it all comes to £385. Phone itself is £369.99 on Play, £20 less on dodgy-looking sites.

Phone arrived next day via Royal Mail. Does not come with data, but shouldn't be too much of a problem for a lot because this phone has wi-fi.

You can add an internet addon to this, £7.50 extra a month for unlimited and it can be cancelled again (which suits me). Even without a plan, the max you will be charged per day is £1.24, but you can turn off the data connection on the phone and be charged zero.

I love the phone, and mine didn't have the big ugly orange logo on the front (in the pic), but on the back where it looks better. Make sure to update your firmware once it arrives, as it addresses the only issue reviewers really had with the phone - UI lag. It handles an insane amount of background processes.

Absolutely love the phone. Heavily recommend this deal. Thanks.

Thought this was a great deal... nearly even managed to persuade me to sign up to my first ever 18 month contract...

But a) no inclusive data is rubbish on a sweet phone like this.... b) £7.50 a month for unlimited data is 50% more than the likes of O2 and Vodafone c) its on Orange which Ihave heard bad things about, d) even £1.24 per day max for data is WAY above Virgin's 30p and Voda's 50p.

So close to a hot deal but then so far....

Good spot though OP.

You're saving £10 directly off the line rental - you can still add the £7.50 a month and still end up £2.50 better off.

If you don't need all of the minutes and texts but want data then there is this deal....

I was looking at a similar deal at [url]www.mobiles.co.uk[/url]. £20 a month for 600 mins Any Network Anytime + Unlimited Texts + 500MB Data. Phone costs more at £99.99 but £40 quidco possible. Better deal for me as it includes data for £20 a month, but 24 month contract.

Seems like a good deal to me, interested to know what better deals are about? £17.50 p/m including data, I'm paying just shy of £20 with o2 simplicity for basically the same dealio, and I had to fork out to get me phone SIM free. Would have got this if it'd been available last month ... suppose I still could and sell the phone if it doesn't compare favourably to my N86.

As far as I know there aren't, i'm guessing people are going NO WEB WTF and down voting on that fact alone. Despite the fact that it's still a bargain if you get the net addon.

Line rental is £10 p/m, plus £7.50 for the unlimited data add-on ... at least I think. [edit] I'm being silly, it's £10 off £30 p/m, rather than off £20, which makes more sense because otherwise this would be hot.

good deal! hope to get a similar one on upgrade with three when they release this phone next month! otherwise will def go for this!!
