Free HTC Wildfire + The One Plan Data Tariff = Unlimited Wi-Fi Hotspot

Three UK's One Data Tariff opens a number of very interesting (and intriguing) possibilities including that of using a HTC Wildfire with Android 2.2 as an unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot that can be used anywhere where there is a Three network.

One of the advantages of Android 2.2 is that it can turn your Android handset into a Wi-Fi mobile hotspot, which means that you can use it, together with the One Plan at £25 per month for maximum impact.

You not only get the phone for free as part of the tariff, you also get 2000 cross-network minutes, 5000 texts, 5000 3-to-3 minutes, free Skype to Skype calls, Windows Live messenger and, of course, unlimited internet access.

The PR department of 3 UK has already confirmed that as long as you leave the SIM inside the phone, you should be able to connect multiple devices to the phone.

Going through Buymobilephone (opens in new tab) means that you save £5 on the official tariff you will find at Three plus you even get a £20 automatic cashback as a sweetener.

How does that compare to Three's current Mobile Wi-Fi deal? Well, you get the Mobile Wi-Fi (Mifi) with 15GB inclusive data allowance on a two year contract for £18 per month; should you want to consume more than that, it just makes sense for customers to get the HTC Wildfire deal with all the added benefits.
