    I just saw that mobiles.co.uk have Vodaphone Pre3 in stock, for as little as free with contract. Now, seeing that I can get unlock software for the Pre3 for as little as usd40, I'd really like to get mu hands one one. But as I live in Norway, it's difficult. Any ideas? Any UK residents who'd like to buy a few, activate them to the US appstore, unlock them, and put them on ebay?

    There is no way for anyone to buy few... One can only buy two pay monthly contracts from them in 3 months... Besides, the phone is free, but you have to pay for the monthly rental

    The pre3 comes unlock though.

    That is a hell of a deal.

    You sign up for 24month contract with vodafone and get 15 months free and free Pre 3, so total cost for 2 years of unlim. texts, 300 mins, 500MB internet and a Pre 3 is 9x31 = 279. Not bad considering I paid 300 for the phone alone

    If you just want the phone, get the 10.50 plan -- 252 total.

    There's apparently a loyalty program you can try joining that gets you another 50 off, and I hear tell that if you cancel the plan right away, it's actually 202, but I'm not clear on exactly how all that works.

    I've sent them an email to see if they can help sell me a phone off contract. Boy was it hard sending that email, I needed to fill in a UK post code, as well as an order number. Seems like they don't want emails unless you already have ordered something, and live in the UK. I faked both, so we'll see how that goes. :-)

    Too bad only people from the UK are able to buy via those channels.
    And obviously there can't be found enough people from this board willing to do this service, even for a little extra, for us non-brits.

    Get into a contractual relationship for the purposes of making 40 or so on the side? You are surprised that people are giving this idea a miss?

    Well, contracts have a limited life time, don't they?

    Tbh I'm looking more for trade for a 32Gb TouchPad with touchstone dock then cash but you can always persuade me otherwise

    Well it seems I didn't get my 2nd one as Voda did the credit check twice in 30 mins so put the 2nd one on permanent hold

    Interestingly if you now go to CPW website to order a pre 3 you have an option to add a 32Gb or 16Gb touchpad as a free gift, but they then say there is no stock LOL

    That gift option has only just recently been added. I wonder if they have earmarked some more touchpads to ONLY be sold with a contract Pre 3

    They're reserving the Touchpads to bundle with Pre 3s, and are launching the offer tomorrow. So for an extra fiver a month over the 10.50 Pre 3 deal you can have a Touchpad too.

    So that amounts to 120 for the Touchpad. Which is still a decent price to get the TouchPad for, but it's definately much higher than the firesale price.
