Three's £35.00 "One plan" deal wipes the floor with every other operator. I'm amazed at how much more they can offer compared to the same price point of others. Impressed with GiffGaff as well for the SIM only crowd.

This. Even disregarding the massively improved internet allowance, at £35/month they offer far more minutes/texts - or other networks only offer comparable minutes/texts for much more per month - so unless you're one of the few people who will use upwards of 5,000 texts/month, and especially with *unlimited* internet included, it's a no-brainer.

Note - O2 offers data bolt-ons for Internet usuage. The current charges per month are: £3.00 for 100MB, £6 for 500MB and £10 for unlimited.


Not quite, it's £10 for 1GB. Slight difference :p

This makes little sense:

Is anyone able to explain to me why anyone would buy T-Mobile's £61.27 package when Orange's £51 package offers more or the same all round? And they will be using the same network seamlessly from next week or something?
Orange seems to normally be better value than T-mobile on these tariffs.
Dear God are people paying that? Samsung Galaxy S2, 15 quid a month, more minutes than I'll ever use, unlimited texts and 1GB data, free phone. Better than the iPhone, and about 1/3-1/4 of the cost. It's a no-brainer!
I have no interest in getting an iPhone anyway as I think they are ridiculously expensive, but a 24-month contract is way too long to commit to in my opinion. Plus won't another iPhone be launched next year too?

Three also has a range of other tariffs available. In-depth tariffs can be viewed at the T-Mobile website.


That should say Three.

Technically, that statement is still correct - it's just T-mobile's indepth tariffs there, not Three's ;)
