    Not according to CPW, you can power on the phone, but not make any calls or store anything in memory. And you can't return the SIM (to cancel the contract) if you've removed it from its holder. On the plus side, they give you 14 days to sit and look at the phone

    I see that Mobiles are offering a free Touchpad with any contract phone, except.. yep, you guessed it, the Pre3.

    These people are truly clueless.

Better to leave it running for the first quarter until that payment comes though, then use the 50 towards paying of the remaining balance. I'll probably just leave it running until term, that way I get a spare SIM to use if I'm somewhere out of my regular network coverage.

    I was thinking instead of "KICKmobiles" they might take a run at a new name:
    "DICKmobiles"?

    The reason it only costs 205 to buy out the contract is because, if I recall correctly, they don't charge you VAT on the line rental for the months you haven't paid yet.

    So if you wait for three months to pass, then you'll save less money on the line rental - but you should still get the cashback from Quidco.

    so I bought my pre- on the first day of release in the uk with O2 - so up for renewal next month. My plan is to get them too beat the 10 giffgaff deal with a new android or I leave. If they accept I'll sell the android and keep my number and sim and use the vodafone pre3 from CFW.

    i 'll pay off Vodafone after quidco has cleared.

    if O2 can't beat giffgaff I'll leave port my number and use a giffgaff sim in the Vodafone pre3 & payoff Vodafone as before.(giffgaff is a far better deal than vodafone).

    either way I get a pre3 for 205 quid & 10 pound a month bills - I might even make a profit if I can sell on the android....

    anyone know a better or simpler route?

    They are offering the Free touchpad on a Vodafone 24 month 15.50 per month contract starting tomorrow/today (ie. the 7th) at 10am

    Well I've got no experience of WebOS, and I know it's a dead end product, but I needed a cheap phone and I particularly wanted Skype integration. So the Pre3 seemed the right choice for a year.

    So I just ordered a Pre3 on Vodaphone from mobiles.co.uk. 12 month contract @ 41.00pcm with 9 free months, so a total cost of 123.00 inc VAT (and I can reclaim the VAT, too!). And I have 600mins + unlimited texts + 500mb per month. What a great deal! I might even order another one and sell it on eBay. ;-)

    Now I just have to avoid falling in love with WebOS while I have the phone. I just hope the battery life doesn't suck as much as I've heard it does.

    How does that "x months free" stuff work? Does it actually come out as you'd expect (e.g. Pre3 with cheap 12-month contract and 9 months free = 3 x 36), or are there hidden charges?

    Nearly correct, the 205 they quoted me with was without VAT, when you add the VAT, the total cost of ownership will be 245.19

    Too bad
    I still have 9 mon left with my pre contract on O2 and they refused to relieve the VAT if I pay the cancellating fee

    unfortunately not,

    if you open the phone and use it then you arent able to return it, with this they are quite specific.
