    Which net work are you with? How much do you pay and what do you get for your money?

  4. I don't have a mobile telephone contract. I have a life instead.

    Not when you have to hire a group of renegade badgers to defend the Wall of Infinite Sorrow in the Valley of Pulsating Souls against a ravening horde of Slaughter-Toads.
  6. But that only happens every other millenium when the wind'a from the North and Preston North End have a home game on St.Jospeh of Arithemea's day. I reckon I can risk it.

  12. Good grief! Why do people spend so much money on such pointlessness?

    I@m on pay as you go - Each time I top up by £15 I get a month's unlimited O2 to O2 calls and texts - which suits me fine as the main people that I ring or text are also on O2.
    I'm after a new phone but don't want a contract - I'm happy with my £15 top ups . Nor do I wish to spend £450 on a top of the range smart phone [even though my son assures me that it would be the 'best value' in the end. But i would like a smart phone which stays looking smart - lets me access apps, and lets me browse the net, with email and facebook integration. It MUST have an app which would alert me when I get a txt message - every minute til I look at it. [my current non-smart phone does that and its great!]. GPS woudl be good and a non scratch screen. I do already have an iphone [an old one] which i'm not that keen on because a. its too big, and b. the battery doesn't last long enough. c. it doesnt' alert me every minute when I 've got a text message.
    Anyone got any reccommendations?

    I'm with T Mobile on a 24 month contract which is £25 a month. It's the Flext tarif, so the number of call minutes and texts adjusts depending on how many calls you make/texts you send. I just have a basic Nokia phone, i'm not really bothered about iphones.
    My husband had an iphone and he's now got a Samsung Galaxy S2 on O2 for £35 a month.

    T mobile, £5 a month, unlimited texts and 300 minutes :)

    Threaten to leave- works wonders.
  16. Wonder if that would work with Orange? My contract runs out in July - I can upgrade my phone only if I agree to another 24 months? Can't be right.
