Found 9th Jan 2011
I've been using my broken phone for far too long on a sim only contract using about 3000-5000 minutes a month for £40 a month but I'm looking to minimise asap to get a contract and phone but what does everyone think would be best on a friends only deal?

OPTION 1:

Free Blackberry Bold 9780 2 year contract with 1400 mins, unlimited texts, email and internet = £23.23.

OPTION 2:

£35 for Blackberry Torch 9800, 24 month contract, 1200 mins, unlimited texts, email and internet = £25.03

OPTION 3:

Free Blackberry Torch 9800, 18 month contract, 1200 mins, unlimited texts, email, internet, 50 picture messages and sat nav = £33.95

OPTION 4:

£60 iPhone 4 18 month contract with 3000 mins, 500 texts, internet, email, 50 picture messages and sat nav = £45.96

OPTION 5:

FREE iPhone 4 24 month contract with unlimited mins, unlimited texts, internet, email, 50 picture messages and sat nav = £45.96

NEW OPTION 6:

£99 iPhone 4, 18 month contract with 1200 mins, 500 texts, internet, email, 50 picture messages and Sat Nav = £30.64

NEW OPTION 7:

FREE iPhone 4, 24 month contract with 1200 mins, unlimited texts, internet, email, 50 picture messages and Sat Nav = £30.64

All opinions would be appreciated.

Alot of people are not liking the Torch atm. I was really wanting to get that but now im in two minds..

failing that, the 9780 is nice

Is that so?

I know there was an issue with the first batch of the Torch but I thought this was resolved.

I'm not too sure about which deal to go for....I was originally strongly considering the 9780, as it seems to be a very good deal and I was thinking if the minutes aren't enough for me, then I'll just get an extra sim only deal....although I'll need to go and buy another phone lol

o2 unlimited calls /texts £61.28 per month

you could get a 16months free /18mth contract -cashback
50£ off with quidco / or topcashback

and buy whatever phone you like from ebay

this is with with mobiles.co.uk (carphonewarehouse company)you submit the bills free online
thats my idea

9780 or Buy an iPhone offline and get a simplicity contract? or go for the iPhone 4 Tesco tarriff?

£45 a month for tesco unlimited but 24 month contract although u get a free 32gb iphone

Ig your paying what you are then it's a bloody lot lol

I did consider Three but there network is apparently only going to get worse in terms of reception but there deals are getting betterto compensate for bad service lol...what's the point in having loads of minutes if I'll be throwing the phone out the window when I lose my signal during an important call all the time lol

ive got a blackberry and iphone, prefer the iphone

No worries mate, oh well.

BTW, I can get the iPhones even cheaper now on the network, so I'm going to update thepricesbut let me know what you guys and girls would recommend.

Quite a few of my friends have also got iPhones, so they're saying we can chat for free, so maybe I should consider the other contracts.

UPDATE: I've added options 6 and 7 and I've updated the price of the iPhones.

Could you let me know where this deal is from:

"OPTION 1:

Free Blackberry Bold 9780 2 year contract with 1400 mins, unlimited texts, email and internet = £23.23"

Thanks

Defo go for the iPhone 4 you won't regret it but is 1200 mins enough?

Although be aware battery on smart phones is about a days use.

I have an iphone and a 9700

The blackberry is a horrible phone imo but i love the iphone
