If it were me I would buy the phone and stick a giffgaff sim in it :P

For £10 p/m you get 250mins / Unlimited Texts / Unlimited Data, thats what I use!


Thanks for the suggestion. Unlimited data is tempting, but O2 coverage is pretty poor in my area. Also that would put the price of the whole thing at £17 a montt (including the phone) so it wouldn't be the cheapest.

That's way too expensive. If you are going to pay £250 I would suggest buying something better.

I am still sadden with the fact no FM radio chip on this device, what did they think really?
It's a high end in a mid range price without a low tier thing :)
