    Basically it's 15/30 a month for 18 months

    with

    300 (double: 600) anytime, any network minutes*
    1000 (double: 2000) Texts




    The reason I ask is that I used to be on Genie (now 02 online)

    This has a full keyboard so would be easier to type messages into

    (If 02 sent me a 3g sim, would it work in the three handset, or is it
    'locked' to the three network?)




    See More: If I buy a handset from Three (Nokia E61) woud it (in theory) accept an 02 (Genie) SIM?

    I doubt it would work with any other network - 3 were rumoured to be
    'glueing' in their sims to handsets now, and also the 3 Nokia handsets
    are sim-locked.

    Only way (at the moment anyway) of unlocking BB5 handsets is via the
    network operator - AIUI 3 charge 115 for the code. Better off going
    on Orange (they only charge 20) or get an O2 handset as they are
    unlocked usually by default.

    I though 3 were only gluing sims for paygo phones

    oh well

    115 quid to unlock? I can just buy a simfree one for 250ish
    (froogle.co.uk) but I prob won't bother. I need money for ... well food
    and rent.

    If you're wanting a O2 Branded E61, give O2 a call and ask if they will
    match Three, then you don't need to bother with unlocking as O2 mobile
    usually are anyway. Well everyone I've had has been.

    Have you considered a contract on O2 ?

    http://www.mobilechecker.com/compare...asp?phone=e61n
    (No connection with the above - just a bookmark from long ago).

    Cashback is with OSPS - now part of the CPW group ... diary the dates
    & you should be ok.

    Cheers
