Seems like a good deal, although I heard that the Satio has/had software issues when first released...probabky sorted now though

seems a pretty good deal, i got a satio a few weeks ago from vodaphone - 600 mins, unlimited texts, 500mb internet, free phone £30 a month (but i did get £90 quidco with that so it kinda lowers the monthly cost a bit)
love my satio, takes a few days to get used to as there's so many features and settings to tweak, it's a great phone and takes awesome photos

ANY Sony Ericsson phone = epic fail.

Get an iPhone and if you can't afford one - steal until you can.

every phone thread - you mention an iphone
why dont you ask mommy for one?

Sorry. Seems a very average deal to me.

Looks like a normal £35 pm contract with a small discount, but you are paying for a phone which near enough cancels it.

It looks like you are going with T-mobile? Could be wrong but thats my guess. I'd phone them direct, say you have been offered the above, i'd be tempted to ignore the phone and say its free and see if they can beat it. Of course if my guess is wrong, phone which ever provider you want to go with! The worst they can do is say no.

sounds ok might got mine a bit cheaper than that. Cheapest place I found was dialaphone.

Just checked and they have a similar deal for £34 a month but a free phone. Plus its £50 quidco on it and also £25 if you can find a friend to refer.

Bought one this month and all software issues are now sorted. they did a big recall and fix on them. Top bannana phone, looks the dogs.

I paid £440 for an iphone, and £20 a month on vodafone sim only 12 months for 600 mins, unlim text, unlim internet. £120 cashback has just been paid from quidco - so equiv: £10 a month for 12 months... £120 + £440 = £560 total iphone contract cost over 12 months.

WIN.

actually i got it in november, it's up for renewal in may. i said c905 not c903 which was one of the best phones at the time, i'm only saying what i have as an example of how many minutes/txts you can get for £23 because she's got to pay for the phone anyway
