After last years fuck up with O2 where they let me upgrade my account 4 times in 5 months

Seem to be having more good luck

Aaaaaages ago I got a phone on 3 shorty after it launched. It was a no line rental deal & you had to pay for the phone (I got mine free).

Its been running for over 3 years & I've never paid a penny. Get a bill from them every few months saying I own them nothing, been meaning to cancel it but never got around to it....

But now I can upgrade the account

If I upgrade for 12 months I have to pay for handsets, but if I go for a 18 month contract then there all free (Well, excluding the SE W950i which is 80)

So

12 x 0 = 0
18 x 0 = 0




Don't know what to choose. Choice of K800, K610, Z610, W850, 6233, 6280, N80, N73, N93, E61, V3x, V3xx, LG U830

Got the W850 at the moment, might sell this & then keep the new phone. Or I could just stick with the 850 & sell the new one

Fancy the N73 I think, what decent apps can you get for them? (Other than sat nav)

The N73 is better than the N80 though?

How much?

The closest they do to a PDA is the Nokia E61

I've had a K800 before & it was really great But the new one has just been announced

Matt i have two contracts still running from 3 from years ago and get bills for 0. Are you saying that if i ring them up and say i want to upgrade and sign up to a 18 month contract which if i dont use i will pay nothing, then they will give me a handset?

The stores have an upgrade calculator, try calling in at your local store

Or ring up customer services. Tell them you're on a 3 to go tariff & you want to upgrade

Its worked for me so should do for you

They don't do that plan anymore, but if you're on it you can keep it when you upgrade
