    Ive had my mobile phone for a good 3 years(Its a samsung galaxy young-so a bit outdated) now.Im 17 and im currently doing my alevels.How can i get a new phone? I currently have £140 atm which phone would be cheaper HTC,Samsung or Sony? I definitely need a front camera too.I need a decent amount of gig too since I want to download snapchat,whatsapp,facebook and music on my phone.

    How can i convince my strict parents to contribute some money to a new mobile phone.I rarely ask them for anything,the last thing i asked for was fifa14(when it came out) apart from that i haven't really asked for anything.During christmas my dad gave me £100 and my mum couldnt give me anything because she is offsick and currently unable to walk for long periods of time...

    I wouldn't get anything other than an Iphone, I've had my 4s for like 3years I think, seriously I use it day in day out, jailbraking is so much fun and adds more features than an android

    Plus an iphone 4s is only £120 Which is cheap compared to when I bought it (£250!!)

    I would personally go for a 5 or 5s (depending on the price) but it's nice to have a more future proof phone

    And then add £10 PAYG top-up so you have calls/texts/ and internet

    Generally does.......just users posting any deals they find, this is why when a offer comes out, it goes right out of stock because people share it on HotUKDeals. There's a link, no need to sign up or anything unless you want post deals or comment.

    If you're looking for an Android in the region of £100 the Moto G is the best thing around at the moment. :yep:

    As for iPhones, I'd recommend looking at a used 5 or 5c, it's still a good supported phone and they're starting at about £150 on Amazon at the moment.

    Lol seriously? It just has links to webaites of usually big companies who currently have deals on products. You then buy it like you would do normally.

    Exactly the below......nothing dodgy, the ones with the high degree usually mean nothings dodgy. Any dodgy stuff is removed, its a moderated site.

    You will have to stick with what you have got. There are no guarantees in life. Your parents have paid for your upbringing all your life and you are still being cared for. Stop being selfish! Like the others have said - find a job. I have a job and I go to university and have to study every day - it is called time management and organisation. I am not meaning to be harsh but think of your parents before you think of yourself.. Over a phone!

    The moto G and moto X are very affordable from around £100+ and are very good price to performamce and of good quality.

    Just a suggestion
