They've just said that they can't do anything as they don't stock the phone at the moment, so I'm just going to leave it for until T-Mobile have it and see if I can get an upgrade. Unless they call me on retention, which I doubt.

I'm going for one of the deals on o2, but on contract. £27 a month with 300 mins, unlimited texts and 500mb data on a 24 month contract at £49.99. :unsure:

Anyone ever used any of them online sites like mobiles.co.uk or affordablemobiles? They have good prices and some bad reviews, but the bad reviews are just because of free gifts and them not reading the T&C's, which I wouldn't have problems with..

Yeah I've been looking at that EXACT deal. If I can't get anything better with T-Mobile direct, that's probably where I shall be going. Never used quidco or any cashback sites before though.

Can't lose anything from it, so if I don't get it direct, I shall definitely look in to quidco. Have you had any problems with that site or everything fine?
And I hope T-Mobile hurry up and get the S2, I can't wait forever.. Annoying that everywhere there's someone telling you a different date.

My orange renewal came up (expires 7th June) so i called the upgrade hotline and the guy said they had no stock.

He called me back today saying the Galaxy S2 had just come in, do i still want it?

£14.50 per month 24 months

300 minutes
x amount of free text (wasnt really listening but it was more than none)
500mb data allowance
phone insurance (break, theft, loss)

im like, is that £40?! or £14!? He definitely said £14.50...even though my old contract was a £35 p/m but discount down by £10 a month on a auto rebate type thing. I did double and triple check that i wasnt getting a Galaxy 1, or somehting else. but i was amazed at that price?

I dont even quite believe it now, but the phone will be with me on Monday apparently. So heres hoping i really have got a proper sweet deal?!

Bye bye San Francisco, you've dont me well for 9 months. But Flash and a better phone for the win!!

Got mine yesterday on a new contract through buymobilephones.net

Was a little nervous as had never used them before but spent some time researching them and apart from a few people moaning that they had not received some naff free gift they seemed to be pretty good.

Ordered phone on Sunday (before bank holiday Monday!) and it arrived on Wednesday.

Tmob contract, 18 month, 600 mins, 500 text, web bolt on included, phone cost 19.99 and contract is 30.64 per month with 35 cashback tracked through quidco (or was it 30?).

Came from Vodafone, PAC code from them arrived in an hour and Tmob are porting my old number over now.

Perfect service from both companies.

Oh, LOVING this phone!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Just curious, is the phone locked to T-Mobile? I'm looking at the exact same package myself.

Nope, mine also happy to take my old vodafone sim while my number gets ported. No Tmob branding on the phone, no extra software I can see.

BEWARE!!!

If you get a Tmobile contract and it is NOT direct from Tmob then your data speed will be capped to 3g. That means no video and music streaming, no skype calling, laggy browsing and bags of frustration at a hamstrung phone.

I had to pay an extra £5 per month to get what you would get for FREE from Tmob if you buy from them direct.

Weigh your options, deals from 3rd party are cheaper but there are hidden costs. With all that being said I still think what I have with the extra £5 is a good deal, just that they dont advertise this and its very well hidden.

i called orange and got a retention deal for a Galaxy SII.

i was on a £25 p/m, 200min, unlimited txt and 500mb data deal.

i was offered by the first woman i spoke to the same £25p/m but with 300min and the phone for £139.

I then mentioned the O2 deal where its £21.50 p/m, 100min, 500 txt, and 500mb with the phone working out at £56 including Quidco cashback. The women said she couldn't do anything for me but she'd pass me onto retentions.

I then got offered (and accepted), £18 p/m for 200min, unlimited txt, 1GB data and the phone for £92. Just need to wait for the phone to come back into stock.

I posted this on HUKD.

If you're looking for a 12 months contract, I don't think you can beat this.

Buy through e2save on TalkMobile

£149.99 = upfront for the phone.
£360 = £30 x 12 months
= £509.99

The possiblity of quidco (£46) brings this down to £463.99

The good thing is you get 400 mins, 1000 texts and 1GB internet.
