iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Sony Xperia Arc S Available From £97!

Another dial-a-phone/O2 deal can be exploited to deliver a massively discounted smartphone, the Sony Xperia Arc S, for as little as £97.

The contract costs £25.50 per month but you can remove the bundled 1GB data before you use the phone for the first time and save £10 per month for the remaining 23 months.

On month 10, downgrade to the lower tariff at £10.50 for the rest of the contract. There are a number of pitfalls and hurdles that could derail the process and, as a customer, you need to be aware of those.

Ultimately, you could end up with a 75 per cent discount on the Arc S and get the phone on an interest free loan (which is what a contract essentially is) and unlocked (as most, if not all, Dial-a-phone handsets are).

The phone runs a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255T processor clocked at 1.4GHz, with 512MB RAM, a 4.2-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, 720p recording, official Ice Cream Sandwich update, the ability to take 3D panoramic photos and HDMI output. The deal entails going through dial-a-phone's and Quidco's automatic cashback process which in a swoop allows the user to get £200 within the first few months.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
