Luckily, we’re on hand to simplify matters for you: we’ve plucked out five of the best deals this month to be had. Read on, and see the best O2 offers up for grabs!
Pay Monthly deals
Free, £10.50 per month, 24-month contract
This little smartphone manages to squeeze in a sharp screen and the very latest version of Android, 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s not the best-specced on offer, but for just over a tenner a month it’s yours with 50 minutes of calls and a healthy 250 texts included.
Free, £21.50 per month, 24-month contract
For a tenner on top of the Wildfire S, however, you can step up into the Android big leagues, with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo. There’s a beefy 1GHz processor so you can play 3D games, and a bigger, sharper screen. It’s bundled with 100 minutes and 500 texts for free each month, and when you consider the Xperia Neo packs in the same camera, processor and TV-screen sharing abilities as the more expensive Xperia Arc, it’s a steal.
Free, £32 per month, 24-month contract
With a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Torch is designed for ultra-quick messaging, and at £32 per month it can handle all the messages you care to throw at it. You get 600 minutes of talk time – that’s ten full hours – and unlimited text messages.
Pay & Go deals
For a penny under eighty pounds, this gorgeous slice of Sony Ericsson loveliness can be yours. It’ll run thousands of apps and games from the Android Marketplace, and they look great on the Xperia X8’s 3-inch touchscreen. This white shaded version is exclusive to O2 as well.
The Nokia C5 has been cruelly overlooked by the critics, but if you’re after a candybar phone with 0-9 buttons and no fuss, no muss, there really is none better. You can still get all your emails on the go, and best of all, it acts as a free satnav for life: Nokia Maps comes preloaded on your phone, with free maps and no need to use any of your data allowance as it directs you from A to B. If you’re after a simple and stylish phone that still packs in plenty of features, the C5 is it.
