    Default mobile phone upgrades

    im looking into deciding what phone i want to upgrade to,the phone i want is the sontericsson xperia x1,but for me to do so it will cost me £108,yet if i take a new phone no and contract i can get this phone with no cost to myself,what is annoying mobile phone companies look after new customers a lot more than loyal customers,i have been with vodafone since october 1996 yet in vodafones case this means nowt,so it proves that you are better off changng your contract every renewal time,the only advantage i have by staying is i dont have to pay for stop the clock which is now an additional £5 a month

    Had the same issue with orange for the missus HTC HD. £195 to upgrade. I phoned to cancel and in the end they paid us £55 to stay with the phone free.

    Do what I did, cancel the contract, get yourself on mobiles.co.uk take out a new contract, get your phone for free or cheaper(although I dont think they do the X1 with any free gifts) and get a free ps3,xbox360 or laptop or other gadget and sell it!!

    Then you will have more money to spend on the Veccy!!

    Yep orange are doing the same to me even though our bill is £100+ a month for 3 handsets. My contract isn't up yet so need to wait until it is then ask for the PAC code then they get the hint. I also find if you call back and get someone else they can suddenly do a better deal.

    Just renewed my contract with Vodafone, was paying £35 a month for 400 cross network minutes and 50 texts

    its a contract I've had for 6 years so it was a VERY good deal at the time

    Ive now changed it to 600 mins cross network and unlimited texts, on a 12 month contract for £20 a month

    i've got and had an xperia1 since day of release
    its a nice phone and there are plenty of hacks and tweaks for it
    its currently running on its 2nd revised firmware release from vodaphone but they are very slow to release new updates as the latest firmware is much faster and is available to download on other sites

    i suggest you try one first if you have'nt had a windows mobile before as there a little fiddly and several people have returned them because its not an iphone

    i love mine its really good and a lovely looking phone nearly as noce to stare at as a vectra c/signum

    if you need any help or feedback give me a shout
    regards
    Dez
