    Post you Vodafone upgrade offers here 12-18 month offers only please

    Just got offered a HTC Desire for a handset cost of £50 on a 18 month contract with 100 minutes, 300 texts 512mb of data on Vodafone for £25 a month. Is this a good deal, the phone is worth about £350 on ebay?

    Post your upgrade offers from vodafone here on this thread (please no 24 month deals 12-18 month only). I didn't do any hard negiotating I assume if I threaten to quit Vodafone I'd get a much better deal.

    Sorry can you confirm that it's a Desire or a Desire HD?

    It was just a HTC Desire, I don't think the deal is that good really, just trying to find out what deals others are getting offered. Whats the best strategy when negotiating, threaten to quit, quote competitors deals etc etc?

    Just found this on the Vodafone forum:

    If you wait until your contract has completed, you'll be in a much stronger position. I'm not sure if the auto-answer stull has the "press this if you're thinking fo leaving Vodafone", but choose that rather than "press that to upgrade" - you'll get a better deal.

    You couild also ask for a PAC code to transfer your number. That'll tell them you're off and they're likely to offer you deals to stay. If the phone you want is free for new subscribers, a deal should be available, but it's going to be much easier when you can release yourself from you contract

    Have a look round and see what other companies are offering there are some really good deals around at the moment.
    Ours was due with Orange gave them a call and got
    Free HTC Desire HD
    500 mins
    Unlimited texts
    500 mb Internet
    £17.60 a month
    Only downside is it is for 24 months, but that doesn't really bother me.

    Give them a call with all the details you have collected ask to be put through to disconnections dept as they usually have better deals to offer.

    Don't for get places like Quidco that are offering money to change companies, factor that in with any offers you put to them.

    Good luck

    Just remember that a large part of any offer is based on your spend over the last 6 months, everyone's will be different so all retentions offers will be slightly different.

    Mine wasn't a retention but a new customer deal.

    Free iPhone 16gb
    18 Month Contract
    75 mins
    250 texts
    500gb Internet
    Free Vodafone to Vodafone calls.

    Mins are rubbish but I may upgrade to an extra £5 a month for 300 mins and unlimited texts. Just wanted to close the deal first.

    yeah iPhone 4. I don't know how easy it will be to get. I had some bloke offer me it who shouldn't have and they have to endeavour it. Were nice enough to give me 2, one for me and one for my husband. Yes 500mb not GB! haha, I'm blond!

    I think I will probably just go through quidco or TCB and get the £90 cashback, get on a cheap £15 a month 12 month sim only deal.

    Unless they offer me something mad like a free Iphone 4

    been a vodafone customer for 10 years, this is worst I've ever seen. have a blackberry 8520 curve, all they offer me is a nokia C3!!!! at £25 not even a free upgrade. time to leave
