I’ve been very excited recently about buying a new mobile phone. An android smartphone, no less! The best phone available (almost) today is the HTC Desire from T-Mobile.
But which plan should I go for. Obviously the plan that offers you a FREE phone isn’t going to be cheap but the phone is FREE! Their website suggests £35 a month tied in for 24 months is the one I want. It gives me 500 texts and 1200 minutes of talk time each month. That’s 20 hours a month and more texts than I think I’ve ever sent!
As you can see I don’t use my phone that much and if I get free internet, then I could probably cope with £10 a month tied in for 24 months. The phone isn’t FREE but now costs £164. This gives me 100 minutes and 100 texts. I might keep within that limit.
So over 24 months I’d pay either £840 or £404. The phone (from Amazon) costs about £440 SIM-free so the £10 plan looks great for me. I don’t make that many calls anyway.
