Carphone Warehouse

The high street retailer is offering the first 1,000 people who pre-order the Galaxy S3 a bundle of freebies worth over £400, inlcuding a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a car charger.

All other customers who pre-order a device will receive a free Sandisk 32GB micro SD memory card (RRP normally £29.99), Invisishield Screen Protector (RRP £14.99) and in-car micro USB charger (RRP 14.99) -a combined value of £59.97. The addition of the Sandisk memory card will bring the combined memory capacity of the device to a massive 48GB.


Vodafone will have the 32GB version of the phone exclusively for the first month, which is certain to attract a lot of customers. It will also offer the 16GB version.

You will be able to get the 16GB version of the Galaxy S3 on a two year contract from Vodafone from £36-a-month which includes 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. Boost that to 900 minutes and you're looking at £41-a-month.


Orange is offering the 16GB version of the phone for free on two year contracts, both costing £36-a-month. The first will combine 600 minutes and unlimited texts with 1GB of data.

For those who prefer to talk more than surf, you can get the same priced contract with 900 minutes but with just 250MB of data.


T-Mobile is currently only offering one contract, which costs £36-a-month as well but will require you to pay £199 up front. It will however give you 2,000 minutes to any network, unlimited minutes to T-Mobile network, unlimited texts and unlimited data.

While the £200 up front cost will put a lot of people off, the large number of minutes and unlimited data will certainly attract a number of power users.


O2 currently has two offers for the Galaxy S3, the cheapest again is £36-a-month, though you will have to pay £49 up front. This will give you unlimited minutes to any network, umlimited texts and 1GB of data.

Add an extra £5 a month and the up front cost disappears and you double your data allowance to 2GB a month, which should be enough for the vast majority of users.

We will update this article as and when networks announce new deals they have avialable for the S3, and when a SIM-free price is announced.
