    Do you spend big amounts each month though for them to be offering you such a good deal?

    err, I'd say 70/month is a rather significant amount to be spending on a phone, no wonder they were generous!

    £70 a month isn't that high really. It's a good spend but not outrageous :)

    Most of the PDA phones you're likely to have to pay for, how much depends on which one you want.

    I used to spend £60-70 a month on personal calls and stuff when I was a standard contract customer, it's not that hard or that high in all honesty, especially if you use your mobile in preference to a landline or you send a lot of texts.

    I guess it's all about perspective though.

    £70 a month is next to nothing when you take into account line rental.. but anyway.. you appear to be on 3? thats surely a different kettle of fish to orange because 3 really do need to hang on to their customers?

    I guess you somehow missed the thread title, "Orange upgrades OWn!". In his first post, he mentions it's a problem with his 6680 that he is discussing with Orange about.

    Maybe you just saw his £700 bill on 3, but I think he's done with them now.

    no smarty pants I didn't miss the title, I just thought it was a bit weird posting a picture of a 3 bill when it's got nothing to do with anything.

    I just wondered if I was missing the point.

    Oops, forgot to put the smiley to indicate it's just a polite reminder. Not meant as a "smarty pants" comment. Sorry :o

    He was just trying to say that (whether genuinely or by mistake) he's had much bigger bills than the £70pm he usually gets.
