    Cheers for that, for some reason I overlooked the 'and' between UK mobiles and 01, 02 etc.

    1GB should be plenty, this sounds like a good deal and from previous posters, its not a bad phone and new.

    go for it!

    EDIT: hold up. 300 mins and 300 texts. you sure?

    look around man, but of course the main reason i got it so cheap, was because i used Quidco (cashback site) to get £120 back for the contract.

    contract was orginally £100 for the phone and £20 a month for 24 months, but with the £120 cashback it was effectivly a free phone and £19 a month

    you can ring UK Mobiles

    You can ring numbers starting with 01, 02, 03, i.e: you can phone a 0208 number and it'll come out of your inclusive minutes

    when ringing voicemail, the minutes that you are in voicemail will come out of your inclusive minutes.

    Texts are to UK mobile networks e.g. orange, T mob, 3, vodafone etc

    unlimited internet is always capped to either 1GB or 2GB. (only some contracts are truly unlimited)
    I read it as voicemail is not included and that you will have to pay for it. At least that's the case with my t-mobile contract.

    Unlimited Internet, etc, bearing in mind the phone, won't it be quite old in two years?

    Just wondering what people thing before I buy...?

    THANKS
    I bought the bb 3g phone for £200, and then got a sim only contract for £10 a month, unlimited texts and 300mins, its a 12month contract, and if you can be bothered to work it out, its cheaper, you can get an internet bolt on for an extra £5 a month if you want, but I didn't really need it cos I've got wifi at home, so I can just connect it to that..
