I’ll be honest, I’m tempted by a new mobile handset every single month – because every month, something new hits the market that seems that little bit better than the handset I carry in my pocket. So it’s interesting that Orange want to tie us into contracts that little bit longer – although there are benefits if you go for it.
The reasons for a longer tie-in are obvious – it gives the company more value for their subsidised handset deals and cuts down the waste of perfectly-good handsets. But it has to be a two-way deal – and it is. Orange is offering voice and text benefits on top of its standard packages if you sign up for a two-year fixed term.
That could be between 50 and 450 voice minutes, depending on your choice of deal. What do you think? More minutes or more handset credibility?
It’s a tough one.
