Ends call for upfront charges

3

Three has encouraged consumers to join the smartphone bandwagon today by slashing prices on five models and removing upfront handset costs.

Although in most cases, the monthly cost is roughly the same as its competitors, Three has outdone its rivals by saving buyers up to £150 in upfront costs.

Firstly, there's the Samsung Galaxy Ace, which'll set you back £15 a month on a 24 month contract. For that you get 100 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB data allowance.

The same deal is available with the HTC Desire S and the Samsung Galaxy S for £22 a month.
