I currently have, which is about to expire in a few days:

18 month contract with T-mobile
free Nokia N95 (was just launched when I signed up)
£250 of credit (1250 peak mins/2500 texts)
10,000 offpeak mins (evenings and weekend)
£40 per month

Tried to negotiate a renewal contract with them but they're trying to get rid of my unlimited offpeak mins...which I can understand since I used over 5000 mins per month over the last few months alone and didn't pay anything extra. :giggle:

Yours is quite similar to mine, i think you generally get a better deal going to the indevidual network shops, I have always found they add more freebies in

Vodafone.

So who has the best mobile phone contract at the moment then...for what I need, I think I've got the best so far, as I used at least 6000 mins to any network and at least 500 texts last month and it didn't cost over £39 (would be £40 but the tax rate is now 15% :p)

As above - but also got a free iPod Touch 16GB - and 'cos they messed me about saying it was a V2 iPod - I got £145 credit in my account... I intend on selling the iPod and reduce the tariff down to 600 mins / £24pm after 9 months.

Total cost per month (including the initial £58 the iPhone 16GB cost) reduces down to about £8.50 per month over 18 months.

I was waiting for you to come along...I think you managed to get the best deal ever but yours was a mistake...I doubt it'll ever be seen again and I guarantee O2 are making a big loss. :giggle:

These are good.. but a contract (or two) is no good without a phone? What was the X1 like? and how did you manage to pull of such great deals? a £600 cash back? & a free X1 phone?!

Free contract means I can choose which phone I want. As long as selling the phone or cashback covers the cost of the deal I'm happy.

currently I have the N95 8GB (cost me >£150) and a Nokia 5800 (cost me £170).

X1 is not that good a phone - build quality is one of the best I've ever seen. But software wise it's slow, and clunky windows mobile just slows it down. X1 + Android and I would have kept it.

BTW it's not £600 plus an X1! Its £600 cashback for one contract and an X1 with the other. So i'm paying £55 per month.

Next up I'll be selling the Nokia N95 8GB and getting the N97 when it comes out. And possibly getting rid of the 5800.

Seems like your on the ball. You know exactly how to get your monies worth!

Anyway, I think I want the X1, going to check it out in the shops next week. Any idea why its not available thru Orange as an upgrade yet? or why its not on the Orange website?
Im thinking of moving over to O2 too...

Yeah as long as the contract is almost free I'm happy as I can then use the money to buy whichever phone I want.

i don't know when it's going to come out on Orange.
