3 phones uk
Three.co.uk is an online store for mobile phones which come in plan or pay-as-you-go package. One of its best buys is the candy bar phone Cedar. It is a basic call and text phone with a 2-megapixel camera. The site offers it for £16-21 per month for a 24-month plan or at £39.99 (as of 12.07.11) if you just want the mobile phone.
A promising deal
The Xperia Arc is another promising deal as for £35 a month, you can get 5000 texts, 200 minutes of call time and all-you-can-eat data for the internet. It is a great deal compared to the £499.99 (as of 12.07.11) price of the phone alone.
Phones4u.co.uk site offers new phones for £29.95-99.95 (prices as of 12.07.11) for the pay-as-you-go option. It offers the Xperia Arc for a lower price as compared to that of the Three.co.uk (about £25), but it comes with only 300 minutes of call time, 3000 texts and 500MB data size for internet. It’s not a bad choice if you don’t need to send more than 3000 text messages a month, nor to pay up more money monthly.
There are other sites like Dialaphone.co.uk, Mobiles.co.uk, and Shop.o2.co.uk, which offer free phones in their plans. The price range differs for about £2-10 with the previous sites, depending on the unit which you want to purchase and the plan which comes with it. They also offer pay-as-you-go options if you just want the mobile phone.
However, this may be more pricey since you also need to purchase a SIM with a plan for about £20 ( Monkey sim pay-as-you-go plan from Shop.orange.co.uk). All that you need to keep in mind is where to subscribe and which phone to buy will depend on your needs and your lifestyle. If you don’t need a powerful smartphone, barphones and sliders are perfect for you. They are versatile and cheap, plus, you get to maximise the phone’s capacity.
