Vodafone UK announces Christmas line-up

image With 16 exclusive mobile phones including the new BlackBerry Storm for contract customers, Text Unlimited for all pay as you talk customers, and the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 ‘netbook’ with built-in mobile broadband, Vodafone UK will have something for everyone this Christmas. From the great value £30 pay as you talk Vodafone 527 Rainbow with its range of colours for the fashion conscious, to the latest Sony Ericsson C905 with its 8.1 mega pixel camera, all Vodafone’s Yuletide offerings will make the most of its fast and reliable network.

Ian Shepherd, consumer director for Vodafone UK, says: “This year’s Christmas range features a great mix of phones at a price that will please everyone. Many of our exclusive mobiles will make ideal gifts especially as several will come with a free digital photo frame. There really is something for everyone from a stylish low cost mobile in the shape of the VF527 Rainbow to more sophisticated mobiles for avid internet, social network, instant messaging and email users.

“Of course there’s also plenty of choice for those who want to have their music in their pocket or quick access to satellite navigation with the Sony Ericsson W350i and the Nokia 6210. Best of all, every Vodafone Pay as you talk customer can opt into Text Unlimited to be rewarded with free texts each month just for topping up £5 or more. As Vodafone is the only network operator to reward topping up just £5, this all makes a mobile from Vodafone’s Pay as you talk range a perfect gift for Christmas.”

Pay as you talk: Not only will Vodafone have twelve exclusive mobiles for Pay as you talk (PAYT) customers to choose from, there will also be a highly desirable free gift of a digital photo frame (RRP £50)* with purchases of the Samsung G600, Nokia 6500 Classic or the Sony Ericsson K770i. All Vodafone PAYT customers can get even more value with free rewards of unlimited texts when they opt in to Vodafone’s Text Unlimited plan. Free to join, Text Unlimited is activated by spending as little as a £5 on top up each month**. Customers can earn extra texts each month from unlimited weekday evening texts through to free texts all month by just topping up.

For our contract customers there is a wide selection of smart phones and camera phones, all of which are available from free on monthly price plans that all include unlimited email and internet*** use.
