I also get 500 o2 to o2 minutes and since almost all of my friends and family are on o2 it works out well. If you've been with them a while give them a call and see what they say. 2 years ago I had a similar situation and I just asked and got 2 extras just like that (unlimited o2 to o2 calls and 500mb bolt on, both for free). If not that 3 deal that someone mentioned for 33 seems like a steal. Phone was free on o2 btw.
I've been with O2 for 12 years on the same number and they will offer me nothing!!

I might just for the ease go with O2. or i will buy the phone and get a giffgaff sim card!

Wow thats shocking! I've only been with them 5 years and even then this is the most expensive tariff I've ever taken out with them...usually I was a SIM only customer (15 a month). I go on their live chat thing and ask what are my options are and I usually get someone saying 'well since you've been with us a while' etc etc. Maybe try your luck and say you've been with them 12 years and you want this phone but that tariff is too expensive and competitors are cheaper and you may have to leave. They seem to value customers so could offer you a loyalty discount (and yes they do this cause my account has a bolt on thingy saying 'Loyalty Discount, -4'). I have half a mine to ask them to knock another few off for those 50mms messages cause they will NEVER get used lol.

If you have been with your provider for quite a while, then try and call their cancellation line and request your PAC code, they will offer you a really good deal just to keep you with them, but if you deny all their offers and go away with the PAC code, wait for another call... with the best deal possible

Why no one commented on the deal that I found?

Is it because of T-Mobile or 300 minutes is not enough?

I have never used T-Mo, so I'm curious a little bit now

I'm on Orange panther 31. As it suggests, 31 with 400 mins, unlimited texts and 750mb data though CPW. Also includes free sky sports on the phone and another one of those swappable things.

I also get 15% loyalty discount for staying with them so works out at 26 odd coupled with roaming data access to T-Mobile I'm very rarely without H connection.

Basically, if you're on Orange (my carrier) or T Mobile you can use either network for phone and data. Mine seems to spend more time on T Mobile than Orange but either way, coverage is great it automatically picks the best one I think.

You also can manually move to either via network selection if you prefer.

Plus orange do that loyalty discount too.

I personaly dont understand, why u all look for "carrier" phones with monthly payment...

Isnt there any "local" internet shops (similar to ebay/amazon) where you can buy? Here there is planty of them! Choose the one u like or the price u like and go ahead!

You can see some of search results here "http://www.salidzini.lv/search.php?q=htc+one" But ofc, these shops dont send outside Latvia, so its not option for thread author

Ohhh i know what you mean now, Orange and Tmobile joined up last year..

I just thought you mean, if you internet connection is crap you could use someone else network lol

Like I (vodafone) could use... say 3 UK network when my 3g network fails.... haha that would be impressive
