(and this time you don’t need to donate any money)
You may remember I’ve been on the lookout for a new phone deal and settled on Tesco Mobile because it’s pay as you go, quite cheap and very simple (20p/minute to all phones and landlines, or 10p/minute to 3 favourite Tesco/landline numbers). But I now have a dilemma.
I’ve got a Nokia 3410, which works fine and is in good condition, but I’ve now discovered the Siemens MC60. Not only does it look rather nice, but it has a colour screen, multimedia messaging, integrated camera, Java games and is a tri-band phone so it’ll work in the US and Canada, assuming I ever go there. And unlike the Nokia 3650, it’s not shaped like a rather flat, rounded brick so it doesn’t monopolise valuable pocket space. What’s more, Tesco have it locked to their network for £125, compared with the usual price of £170 for an unlocked SIM-free phone.
On the other hand, there’s nothing wrong with my current phone, bar the lack of the features I mentioned above. It’s unlocked already, so I could conceivably just buy a Tesco SIM card for £9.99 and get 500 free Clubcard points, equivalent to £5 of vouchers off shopping at a future visit to Tesco. Furthermore, I don’t have that much money, although I could sell the 3410 to get a bit of cash back.
Decisions, decisions. Anyone want to help me decide?
