    28 a month,
    700 mins, 3000 texts, 1GB Data
    Free Samsung S2
    100 Instant Cashback.

    Works out that the phone tarrif is costing 7.16 a month. If you aren't after a new phone but your contract is up, sell the phone and take the cashback for a cheap contract perhaps?
    Crikey - who's that with? (guessing 3 because it has to be too good to be true)

    Is this true?
    I can get 25% off orange as a new customer just for working at a school?
    Any website that gives more info?

    No they don't do that. I tried and was told the 25% discount is a retention bonus if you take the same contract 5 times in a row.

    Finally received my new phone, it's beautiful! Why does it take them so long to activate the new SIM card though? I rang Orange and they said Phones4U will activate it on Wednesday and got the phone/sim pack on Friday. I love the phone, I can't see why somebody would pay so much more for an iphone at all! I downloaded a sat nav app from the market called Sygic, and have tried it a couple of times - and it appears to be VERY responsive and it's all in 3D. The features are amazing, downside = a little big and you can certainly feel it in your pocket. another downside = I choose white and I think maybe if I could turn back the clock I would choose black.

    I don't know who told you that, but somebody in our office just got a contract last week - one of those 10 a month ones with the cheapo phone and it's only costing her 7.50 a month with the 25% discount.

    We certainly get it here. Even had a letter from the local Orange shop re-iterating we could have 25% discount.

    S2 - It's light but I have to take it out my pocket if I am working on some cabling or something under a desk.

    Just to redress the balance a bit on the Galaxy S2 - its very nice to look at but its got at least 2 issues.

    1. Low headphone sound level (compared to other devices - 10dB down on my wife's HTC Legend)

    2. There are GPS issues (I run my own speedlimit app and whereas it used to get a GPS lock by end of the road- now sometimes if doesn't get one for several miles/sometimes it gets a lock sooner but nowhere near as quickly/reliably as my old HTC Desire)

    Once you start trying to find out some facts on the T'internet - you get swamped by so much guff its very hard to discern the wheat from the chaff - this wasn't the case with the HTC Desire.

    Well said @Domino

    Put you're own ROM on there and enjoy it... Leedroid is a good one for Samsung, as is BlitzMod
