There are many different deals currently available for mobile phones, from smartphones through to more standard handsets; these deals provide excellent value in terms of monthly contracts and cash back redemptions, and come with a range of different data, minutes, and texts packages. Among the best deals are long term redemption offers on the iPhone 5, as well as more inexpensive monthly contracts for smartphones such as the Motorola Razr i, the Blackberry Bold 990, and the Nokia Lumia 920.
While it can be difficult to get much out of a new iPhone contract, it is possible to take advantage of cash back deals, whereby you can reclaim a percentage of your contract payments at the end of it; Vodafone offer a deal on the iPhone 5 where you effectively pay £28.19 per month, and get 500 MB of data and 600 minutes of talk time, with the downside being you have to see out your 24 month contract being claiming your money back.
Sony Xperia Z
You can find a lot of deals tied to the Sony Xperia Z, with one of the best being T Mobile’s 19.99 plan, where you get a 24 month contract with 500 minutes, unlimited texts, and unlimited data.
