The Lloyds TSB one because it is EXACTLY the same as the HSBC one but the free non-existant railcard.

One of the offers it gives you is a free phone, well you basically get the chance to sign up for a contract phone. I have decided (as has my mother) this will be a good idea.
My mum has said they will pay the line rental of up to £20 a month as long as I pay for all the calls etc.

So...what phone do I get, and on which network?

I want one that I can take photos with but doesn't cost a bomb to use...any thoughts an ideas and experiences would be much appreciated!

Three's current offerings are pretty awesome. £25 per month will get you 500 minutes to any network at any time... or 500 free texts. The choice is yours.

Yeah I also like T-Mobile. I used to hate them but now I've been with them nearly 2 years, I've never had to pay for voicemail and my texts are ten pence.

My calls can range from 30p to 10p depending on how much I put on.

However I text a lot so lots of free texts would be good, however with 3 don't you get video mobile which costs a bundle?

Can't be arsed, I'm not tired.

Mmm that 3 phone looks pleasing...as well as it's not that expensive to run. However the £25 a month seems daunting...

that's like £300 a year....

The thing I find most daunting about it all is having a direct debit for it.

Only grown ups have direct debits :|

don't get one on Orange. if you run out of credit (it can happen with contract phones as well as PAYG) you cannot get incomming calls.

Also go for a contract that doesn't charge for 'cross network'. Oh and don't bother with the insurance. You can get a mobile put on normal insurance for pennies, the person selling the phone will tell you you can't but don't believe them. I've had 3 handsets lost or stolen all replaced by my insurance within 48 hours.

I think I'm going to go for this one.

It seems like a good deal, especially if you look at the tariff.

I'm sick of pay as you go

That one looks good, but just check on the free texts thing: from what it says I'd guess you get 1000 free texts/month for the first three months, or the middle 3 months, or something, but it doesn't say you get any free texts at all outside that.
The free minutes are good though.
