    Just to put this out there, I have a Samsung Nexus, I didn't pay a penny for the phone and I pay £13.50 per month. Ha, top that. The Nexus is an AMAZING phone though.

    S3 (phone was £50), T-Mobile, £27.50 pcm, unlimited internet, texts and T-mobile calls, 2000 minutes for other calls

    EDIT: it's worth noting got the phone release week and have been with T-Mobile for years, so it's sort of a fine balance in that I got some discount on my plan (Full Monty, usually £36) but as it was a new phone still had to put up some cash for it. You could probably match my deal now without paying for the phone if you point out the S4 is just around the corner...

    Some how I think they got the better deal since you have to stay with them for longer.

    You can always tell a pessimist from an optimist

    Mobile phone economics defy logic and someone somewhere ALWAYS gets a better deal.: )

    Have you tried out multi-window yet? That's awesome, and I believe the first instance of real multi tasking on a smart phone
    (by first I mean Samsung were first, it first appeared on the Note and later on S3 via an update)

    When the phone company offer you a new phone turn it down and ask for a cheaper contract. I am with T-Mobile and get 500 mins + 500txts 3gb (but it is not capped) for £10 per month

    True, but no good if you want a new phone. I understand that you could save the difference and outright buy a new phone in 12 months, but who's got that kind of patience?
