Dot Mobile

Dot mobile phoned me yesterday. They said that I can keep with them despite no longer being a student and to check out details for the contract extension, and since i am a preferred customer (read that i paid my bill on time)

Checked their website, If I don't choose a new phone then I can get 11 months free line rental on a 18 month contract (£20 a month). If i get a new phone it would be 6 months free line rental. Once again it is in Units rather than seperate minutes and texts which i prefer, so will probably stick with them.

Will try and decide what i want to do and do it by the end of the week. Part of me wants to keep the phone that I have as there is not a decent Nokia flip phone available, despite my current one having a cracked front display. The other part of me is to upgrade for one that does not have a cracked display. although i would have to change to motorolla and although i have lots of nokia chargers (downside) I do get 7 hours of talk time for the battery rather than 3 hours.

If i don't go for the mobile, I would only pay £140 for a year and a half, whereas if I do go for the phone it would be £240 for a year and a half.

I'm not sure how it works in the UK (Laura would know) but here it's the same phone for both texts and phone time. The roaming thing is the only bad thing for me, not that it happens all that often. Of course, I usually keep in touch via computer anyway! :D

Oh it is the same phone over here. The difference is that most providers gives an amount of free minutes and a seperate amount of free texts.

For example: For £20 a month, a provider will give you 100 free minutes and 75 free texts. For the Dot Mobile, they give you units. 2 units for 1 minute of phone call, 1 unit for a text message (now it is a half unit). This means that for £20 a month I get 350 units, which i can choose what i want to use them on when i am using the phone.
