as some one who is about to take the plunge and get a TP2 im wondering how people purchased them and what deall they got

if im right they cost £504.85 including vat

best deal to suit me on contract is voda talker £30 + with mobile web

500 mins, 100 text (dont text that much) and unlimited mobile web 18 months @ £34.26 + £616.86

now for that the phone comes with no branding and unlocked, so why just buy it then get a contract is there something i am missing


so whats deals have people gone for and why

thanks for any input

Vodafone 1 year contract, 27.50 a month, + Unlimited Online Blox

I need to pay 286 extra for the TP2, total is ~650?

Not too bad. Because the the TP2 alone cost 600. So I can call 200 minutes/400texts a month, for around 50 a year

And I'm getting a free 16gb microSD card from the e-tailer I'm buying it from. Great offer if you ask me.

Wink Best deals I could find
Hi there,

I posted this on a different page but this is probably the best place for it...

I'm currently talking with T-Mobile and they have told me that they will be getting branded handsets in at the end of the week, personally I prefer a sim free version but it looks like it will be possible by next week to buy them on the network with a lovely discounted rate.

Handtec are selling the phones at 502.40 inc VAT

As I'm a fussy git I've managed to wangle an upgrade through Carphone Warehouse so it will be fully unlocked, sadly they dont have them in stock yet so I will have to wait until the end of the week :(

For anyone who could do with this phone on a new contract on T-Mobile/Vodafone I urge you to check out www.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk as they are doing some amazing deals, I couldnt help but drool, I would recommend the Combi 30 + package, 25 for the phone and 35 per month with web and walk thrown in and a shed load of free calls and unlimited texts.

I hope this info is of use to some of you.

UPDATE - I have cancelled my old T-Mobile contract and gone for the Combi 30 + Web 'N' Walk deal on www.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk as it seems the best way of getting the phone with a very useful tarriff.

Cheers guys

Terry

Neckermann!

I was doubting if I should buy it there, but thought that it would probally end up in paying 600 for it. As the price is now 599 but it was indeed 440 before.
But it is a pretty sweet deal you got there !

Hi,

I to ordered with neckerman and have a "confirmation" e-mail for the 440eur. I got no mail as to the price being changed or my order being canceled. I however also did not receive any unit yet nor did i get a shipping confirmation.

I'm pretty sure there is no way to hold me to a higher price.. the other way around however..

How / why are you so sure you will get the unit for the " confirmed" price.. there is some small print discaimer for wrong pricing.
I'd be interested to get my order definitively confirmed to...

Cheers

Thre are a lot of people who asked confirmation from neckerman (in a dutch ICT forum: tweakers.net). It seems that all people who have paid already using IDEAL get it for the prize they paid. People who asked a transaction form (accept giro in dutch) still have to pay 600 or get their money back.

The product is available in the Netherlands since today, so I expect to receive it pretty soon

(the fact is: people who used IDEAL closed the buying agreement by paying.)
