PAYG means you will be paying for the handset.

How much are you willing to pay for a handset?
150 pounds?

i don't want top of the range. but i do want to go online. check news n shit.. not facebook or videos.. and i want to be able to go to france or spane, get a new sim card put it in.. job done.

the carphone warehouse and the ee shop said all thier smartphones are locked for 3 months, then they magically come unlocked.. fuckin shit salesman..

i might buy a phone from GAME.. they seem to sell phones on the cheap..

anyways i went to town today to buy the samsung ace 3 from the EE shop.. and the different sale person said its not avalible on payg.. only contract! wtf bitch? so i left.. they annoyed me.. i went to the co-op instead and brought profiter rolls and croissants.

Its ok. I have been with them for many many years.

I only have to speak to customer service when upgrading my phone every 2 years so the network must be ok.

The new Sony Z series are fully waterproof if you like dropping your phone down the toilet.
hmm, i would like the option to throw it in the toilet.

thats like buying a TV with anti car crash mode. because you might one day throw it into oncoming traffic?

I got the Motorola G 4G Catsel and it's pretty ideal for the money

I bought it the day it was released for like £160 or something and it's been good a year or so now. You can pick them up for around £80 now I think?

Castel my old buddy!


I would really recommend a contract phone. Pay as you go rape you. I have just finished my contract so I too am looking out for a new phone.

thats 2 years though! what if i decide to fuck off somewhere in the next couple of weeks.. then i got a 2 year contract i gotta keep paying off for nothing...

i just don't see it being worthwhile...

not bad... but does it go down the toilet?

Me mams got the Galaxy Ace 4, its not bad for £150.

Id get that and get on a monthly SIM contract from giffgaff or suchlike.

Works out cheaper than a 2 year handset contract and you arent tied down
