    Just wondered if anyone has a mobile with the 3 network?

    im thinking of buying a new phone and found one in superdrug for only £65 which i think's a great deal. it says the handset is £40 and added £15 credit which brings the package to £65.

    dunno if anyone's seen the ad for it..its on the back of the free superdrug xmas catalogue if u wanna have a look...the phone on the left.....cant remember what its called now but its really nice.

    i basically just wanted to know what that network is like cos the phone seems really cheap.

    Also 3 is very restrictive about what you can do with your airtime. i think it's something like you have to devide to into txt's and minutes at the beginning of the month. and each voucher only lasts for one month. the minimum voucher size is £15, so effectively its a £15 a month contract.

    irgin is the best network for pay as you go. i mean 3p texts how great is that, and no catches at all (other virgin mobiles only)

    for £5 you can unlock the handset. so you get, for £50, a handset with twin cameras, bluetooth and mp3 capabilities and the ability to use any network. plus a backup sim

    thats cool, don't get any of the 3g stuff though, which is the only really positive to having to carry around a brick for a phone.

    the phone superdrug are offering is a small flip-top. im not sure if 3g phones are unlockable though. i would assume they are.
