    Three (3) network retention deals advice needed

    My contract expires in about 2 months but I've been eligible to upgrade for a month now. What retention deals have hukd'ers received recently from 3?

    I'm currently on a loyalty discount and paying £5/month for 500 mins + 100txt. I pay £5 extra for internet so £10 in total.

    Any help/tips would be appreciated.

    AFAIK, there's no site that compares retention deals? Thanks though

    Retention deals are based on your spend over the last 6 months, so there's no point comparing them as everyone spend (to some degree) is different.

    For example, if your plan price is £25 a month and you go over every months by £20 you'll get a great offer as they can see they'll make money out of you.
    If your plan is £15 a month and you never go over you're not going get very much at all as they can see no profit . . .

    I got nothing as I wanted the iPhone 4. My route is going to be to port (how I hate that stupid industry term, let's call it transfer), to transfer my number to another network then use quidco or something similar to get £50 or so cash credit as a brand new customer.

    (_;) (me hopes)

    I think there's more to it than that. There's how long you've been with the network, number of contracts etc. I didn't spend much before I was offered the great contract I'm on now.

    Nice discount. I have a lifetime discount with them of £5 pcm for 300/300 mins/texts. I used to get a new phone every 12 or 18 months which when sold paid for the whole term and sometimes more. They wised up last year so no new phone unless I change tariff.

    Anyone upgraded recently and got a good deal?

    Does anyone know if there are any decent retention deals for SIM only contracts? I'm currently on a 30 day SIM only £10 per month. Thinking of cancelling to see where it gets me!
