    Switching from Pay as you Go to Monthly Contract

    Switching from Pay as you Go to Monthly Contract 5th Apr 05 at 2:33 PM
    I want to switch from an Orange pay as you go to a contract phone, but haven't a clue as to how to go about finding the best deal. Can better deals be found on the internet or on the high street?

    I am currently spending £300-£350 pounds a year on the pay as you go, so I think £25-30 a month will be about right. I would like to keep my number if possible, but will change if a significant a saving can be made. I would like the best phone possible. It is important that the contract and phone will allow a reliable service in Europe, USA and Asia. (The service when roaming with pay as you go seems patchy. Are contract phones more reliable abroad?)

    Which companies are the most reliable and have the best contacts? Also is it necessary to get phone insurance this seems like a significant extra cost?

    Any help appreciated.

  • While I oft bemoan Xmas being a retail festival. It's strange today many are bitter that shops are REDUCING prices, usually its the opposite

  • And leave people held hostage to high Xmas prices? Our tradition was Xmas discounts spread in Nov/Dec not on one day

  • John Lewis website is down - its price matching black friday deals. Maybe its a good day to buy cheap extra servers?
