    Due an upgrade on O2 and I quite fancy the iPhone 4 (using a 3G ATM). However, I don't fancy the £35/month, 24 month contract with a phone for £229.

    Just wondering if anyone had negotiated a better deal over the phone? I'm paying £35 a month now with 600 minutes (18 mnth contract) which I'd like to continue if poss.

    Just out of interest, any idea how the Blackberry Torch stacks up against the iPhone 4?

    I couldn't get them to shift from £199 if I wanted to keep my £35 a month tariff. so I opted for a free 3GS instead. Meh, at least my case will still fit now!

    Mines cost a 12" inch pizza and you may ask why?

    The joys of going to pick up a takeaway, arriving to find myself the only one in the shop apart from staff and a lovely boxed iphone 4 not even tjurned on yet sitting there in the box, which happily sold for £450 quid.

    On another note my friend recently upgraded, he managed to get an 18 month from 3. They wouldnt budge on giving him the phone for free until he mentioned he was moving from T-mobile.

    I am with Tesco, only place that offered (or so i thought) a 12month contract. Three offered me one when I said I was leaving them, for the same price as tesco, however, the signal for Three is poo in my new house so couldn't stay with them.

    Phone was £350, and £20 a month. Will sell it next year for £250ish and get the next one, or keep it for another year and drop the line rental even lower. I hate being stuck on 30+ line rental a month, hence why i fork out a lump sum first.

    Blackberries are pony compared to the iPhone.

    I bought mine outright then got a £20p/m SIM only contract through vodafone through quidco and I got £100 cashback, bargain.

    https://www.quidco.com/vodafone/
    £100 - for a 12 month SIM only (£20 tariff)
