X-Series Gold Bundle

It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine…

For £25/month for the first 6 months and £40/month for next 12 months or a total minimum commitment of £580 over 18 months, you get:
  • Nokia N73 (worth £340 at nokia.co.uk)
  • 512MB Memory Stick
  • 300 voice minutes / month
  • 1000 texts/month
  • £5 free downloads/month (equivalent to 5 music tracks)
  • 50 video calling minutes / month
  • 50 MMS messages/month
  • 1GB per month. Also, your data usage doesn’t include using your mobile as a modem.
  • Windows Live Messenger won’t count towards your monthly data fair use limit but has its own limit of 10,000 messages per month.
  • Skype on 3 is 5,000 minutes per month. If you go over this you’ll need to wait until the start of the next bill month for the service to resume, however Skype calls can still be received.
  • Orb and Slingbox have a total combined limit of 80 hours a month.
  • Mobile access to Orb or Slingbox does not include using your mobile as a modem.
  • For Orb and Slingbox you’ll need minimum PC software, PC and router specification and broadband at home.
  • Slingbox and Orb are for personal use only and you mustn’t breach copyright or get around copyright protection.
  • To watch home TV on your mobile you need to have a TV service that you can legally view.
  • Slingbox is sold separately and contains a Freeview receiver so you’ll need a TV licence if you haven’t already got one.
  • The Slingbox is sold separately for £99

Even the Knights of Cydonia would struggle to sort this mess out.
