(Help With) Current Phone Deals

PostPosted by phillpark » Fri Dec 12, 2014 1:52 pm

Brother-in-law's mobile contract with O2 has just ended and he's been disconnected (as requested), however the plank hasn't bothered to sort out a new contract yet!

He was on an iphone 5 with O2. Don't think he was that keen on the phone, tbh. He has no idea what phone/network etc to go for now, and is open to suggestions. I'm pretty sure a chorus of "get a Note 4" is gonna come this way, but he might think that's a bit big. He coaches kids football so i'd imagine it will have not weigh down the pocket of a pair of tracksuit bottoms too much!

I'm just wondering if anyone has spotted anything that appears to be a cracking deal at the mo? Any phone on any network with a reasonable number of calls/texts/data (I'm sure a Gig would cover it).

Saw an LG G3 on O2 via cpw for £28pm, including a free 'circle case'. Seemed like a good deal to me?

Thoughts on that phone, and any other deals you spot please!

Mrs M has the G3, a great handset which has repeatedly been voted No.2 in best Android handset polls (behind the M8, obviously ;) ) For the money it's hard to beat - also it will be, allegedly, the first non Nexus device to get Android 5 :bringit

Obviously my personal recommendation would be the best Android phone, and at £26pm you'd be hard pressed to do better than the M8

EE don't really do deals but they do deliver a service that works, so you pays your money and takes your choice ;)

Nice phone, but not particularly good value IMO
