3's line rental structure is already an attractive model. That is, you pay your line rental charges up front instead of claiming the line rental discount over set periods during the term of your contract. The latter is known as redemption. 3's more enlightened model allows you to better budget your cash. However, this excellent offer further reduces the line rental from £27 per month to just £20 per month with an enormous pot of free minutes and/or texts to enjoy in the meantime.

Look and feel
Although svelte, we were surprised as to how solid and sturdy it feels. So it should, as it's crafted from anodized aluminium, which is one of the most durable, yet lightweight materials around.
Ease of use
The keys are a little fiddly to press because they're rather small, but the user interface is simple to use.
Features are solid for a mid-range phone, with 3G (but no video calling), a reasonable two megapixel camera, good music player, stereo Bluetooth and 1GB of internal memory.
Despite boasting 3G we found the internet experience to be slightly sluggish with the screen struggling to fit in content.
We found the battery life very acceptable for a mid-range phone.
