If you're ready to fork out an additional £3 per month and if you don't need Skype, then Virgin offers you a £12 that gets you a 5-megapixel camera (The Samsung G600), a 512MB card, 150 minutes and 150 texts as well as 50 free photo prints, a memory book and collage poster. Three's offer though is great especially since their own PAYG require you to buy £10 per month.
