    Hi all,

    My contract is up very soon so looking at the Sensation (had the Desire and Desire S) but I can't find any decentish deals.

    Especially if it's an 18 month contract, what's the best deals you've seen?

    Looking on mobilephonesdirect.co.uk you're looking at

    I've been looking into 18 month contracts myself. The cheapest deal I've found has been on t-mobile but bought through buymobiles.net; it's

    If on, or thinking of changing to vodafone contact @vodafoneukdeals on twitter - they were certainly able to offer me (as an existing customer) some decent offers on the sensation (for my OH)

    Ended up going for 26/month 24m 300/unlimited txt+100 mms/750Mb

    Also if you work for a large company see if they offer any corporate discounts. I do and this should equate to a further 20% off hopefully bringing it to 20/month if that works out (to be verified). But only some tariffs apply so make sure you discuss this when looking at contract options.

    Not sure if this is retention only but a lot cheaper than retail.

    My experience of vodafone is not one I would recommend to anyone. I was with Orange for 10 years until they started to have major issues with signal at my home address where I had lived and still live all the time I had been with them, but seemed totally uninterested in sorting the issue out, so move to vodafone, who seemed to have a good signal and reasonable deals, but over the last year and a half, I have started to have major issues with signal with them as well. After many promises of sorting out the problem, I still have very patchy signal at the best, and no signal at worst. Seems very strange as the mast is only a 10 min walk away, and depending on who you talk to at vodafone depends on whether you are meant to have a good or bad signal according to their system.

    Vodafone could offer me 1 million mins, texts, and a terabyte of data and I would still rather use two tin cans and string.

    If you're not too worried about minutes.... I got a sensation xe for 21.50 a month for 24 months. 100 mins, 500 texts, 500mb and unlimited WiFi. Go through quidco and get 60 cashback. If i can work it out there is also 70 cashback by redemption. This is on O2.

    I've literally just upgraded too.

    I've been with Orange ever since my first phone bar 1 year I was with O2 before I got sick of their lack of customer service. I guess with most carriers if you build up loyalty then they'll look after you. I had problems with reception at my last property, so considered moving to 3, but having just moved and the missus signing up to 3, she's found signal shocking in the new place so I stuck with Orange.

    Upgrade arranged through Phones 4 u, Sensation XE with 600 minutes, unlimited (3000 fair usage) text messages, 1 Gb data and unlimited wifi, plus I get sky sports or MTV or something in the swapables.
