    It says

    QUOTE,

    This offer is Vodafone Anytime 200 and you get the following:

    FREE 12 Months Line Rental (worth 270)
    FREE Nokia 5146
    FREE Sim Card
    FREE 200 Any time Any Network minutes

    END QUOTE.

    I thought the Nokia 5146 was on the T-Mobile (One 2 One) network and it was the 5110 that was the Voda network.

    Just a small point.

    mmmm surely there must be a catch.

    Free phone
    Free line rental
    Free 200 minutes a month

    :|

    How on earth does that work?

    letsbuyit.com get a commision for signing a new user to their network. They then use that commision to offset the line rental and phone AND they make a bit of money as well.

    That's the reason why it's a shitty phone. e.g New phones cost around 350 ish so if you go on contract they subsidise the phone. If the phone costs 100, they can not only subsidise the phone, they can subsidise the line rental as well.

    yeah 200 minutes a month for 6 months, not 12:

    After month 6 you are able to downgrade your tariff to 15 per month, and you will continue to receive the equivalent amount paid into your bank account via standing order.

    still sounds surprisingly good though.

    i'm on hold trying to cancel this after reading all the crap about them... the voice on their automated system sounds like a proper paedophile.

    Also note:

    This handset does not come with a manufacturers warranty but is covered by our by standard returns and refund policy.
    They don't actually say what their "standard returns & refund policy" is (it's probably a fair bet that the handset is reconditioned as opposed to brand new)
