    Couple of points - on the mobile - its really dependent on your type of use (heavy peak time/off peak, light user). A good starting point is
    have some cracking deals on the Nokia 3100 with a combination of call packs (50ish)- money back after two months. Only problem is that they are temporarily unavailable - they'll probably have more in shortly.

    Another good deal is being offered by Onestopphoneshop - they'll give you a Nokia 3510i and 200 xnet mins and cashback, where you actually make a profit !;action=display;num=109687 5480

    On your other points - the 1899 override works for either PAYG or contract - but on PAYG you'll probably be paying 20p+ a minute to access 1899.

    One final point - if you're with BT its cheaper to use 18866 (1p connection fee rather than 3p with 1899).

    Overall, your best bet would be to choose a provider that allows free calls to 0800 numbers. Orange.
