Well its coming to the end of my contract and I want a new phone, and cheaper bill too, unfortunately the phone I can get free on a new contract, orange have decided will cost me about £120, so without terminating my contract I can pay £120 to get a new phone and then change the contract to get the new bill.

Or I can cancel my contract, and take out a new one giving me a free phone.

Anyone else see the mistake they’ve made?

If I’m terminating my contract, what’s to stop me going to say vodafone and taking out a similar contract?

so the question is, upgrade and keep my 10% loyalty discount, pay £120 and change my contract

cancel my contract, take out a new one (£19 75min, 475text) for a free w810i

cancel my contract and pay £100 for a w850i on a £19 contract (75min, 475text)
or cancel and go to vodafone pay £90 for a w850i for their similar contact at £18 with 150 less texts.

To spend or not to spend? should I stay or should I go? they are the questions.

    On T-Mobile you can get that phone for £29.99 the the Flext contract. If you get it before the end of the month then its £15 a month (although an 18 month contract.) With that you get £34 worth of calls which can be used on either calls or texts.

    ahha thats an other option, but Sharon has signal problems with tmobile at my house so I think the coverage is a bit pants

    erm I’ve just got it so the phones free on that £15 a month on but thats only the first 3 months, then its £22 (about the same as I pay now)

    its the Flext 20 + web’n’walk deal, works out cheaper than both vodafone and orange, I just dont get quite as many texts to not use every month

    think I’ll try that, they recon they have coverage
