DialAPhone / Carphone Warehouse / Phones4u
« on: February 25, 2011, 12:14:00 am »

Basic question, anyone used any of the above companies?

My contract is up soon and I'm pretty sure on the phone I want(either Blackberry Torch or HTC Desire Z(good shout from Robbie!)), the only problem is to get a decent deal through T-Mobile it'll cost me roughly 40+ a month for the phone I want, and haven't found many better offers with other companies directly.

Through Dial-a-phone I can get a pretty good deal on texts and minutes, with 500mb internet & unlimited BB mail(for the Torch) for roughly 20 a month. Usually I wouldn't touch these companies because of the horror stories you read, but the massive difference is making it very tempting.

Reading reviews online the majority are horror stories, but then again I think your more likely to write a review about a bad experience rather than a good experience.

Any help would be appreciated, ta!

Burnsey, i've spoke to a load of customers at work that have said the Torch is utter wank. they have serious hatred to it and keep sending it back.

Nah, mainly because last time I upgraded T-Mobile wouldn't budge, so I walked away and found a good deal on a Dial-a-phone type website but backed out of that at the last minute because of the horror stories and ended up paying 15 extra a month for 100 extra minutes that I don't need :/

As for the Torch, loads said that about the Curve when I get that too, and I love mine. I think I'm just going to try and take my chances with it as it seems every phone gets slated now. Ideally I'd like a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard so it's pretty much down to that and the HTC.

I can get a decent deal through the Carephone Warehouse for a little more than Dial-a-Phone, which I was more tempted to use because they have a shop in town so if I had any real problems I could go see them and kick up a fuss.

I work for carphone, and even though I am obviously biased, we're not as bad as people make out. Idavoid online stuff as you then donthave somewhere to go in person if needs be.

I might pop into town and see what the Carephone Warehouse can offer me, the option to go and see them in person is a definite deal breaker like!

I'm thinking about just getting an Iphone4 from 3. Instore they have a good offer on the Iphone 3gs for 25 a month/69 for the handset(before March), but can get the Iphone4 for 30 a month on a better deal from them anytime for 99 upfront, but I'd get 55 from Mazuma for my Blackberry to offset that a bit...

Ended up ringing to see when my contract ended, and they offered me the Iphone4 on a pretty good deal, for cheaper than I'm paying now. Plus I get it on Tuesday. I stand corrected, retention's is always worth a try!
