Yep, that's a T-Mobile deal.

I have to say T-Mobile has been the best coveragewise for me (Birmingham area) and it's even better now with the Orange network share.

A friend on Vodafone has nothing but trouble with coverage. I was on O2 a while back and coverage was ok but their billing errors and service were shocking.

I guess I'm lucky - T-Mobile easily offer the best value for money and their coverage is excellent for everywhere I've ever needed it.

I'd recomend my route if you want to save a few s.

Find one on ebay from someone a drivable distance away.

Email them explaing the crazy fees they will have to fork out when the auction ends (Postage, listing fee to ebay, sale fee (10% up to 40 max) and paypal fees of around 3.5%) Then make them an offer which will save both of you money.

E.g. I saw the GN for 480. After deductions he would have made 414. I offered him 430 Cash , picked it up that day.

Just an idea.

Wonder is this standard Vodafone price. If so it's got to be a good option.

Woohoo!! I just legged it to the nearest store and bagged one for 425 too! Took a bit of persuasion as they only had two left and wanted to keep them for contract sales mind you!!

Thanks for the heads up!!

Cheers,

Derek.
