DC-HSPA+ Phones
Hi can anyone tell me any phones that are DC-HSPA+ for upto £250 but upto £300 at a push, i dont want an iphone 5 as i dont like apple devices and ive ruled the Samsung galaxy S3 out because of cost (although i do like that phone a lot lol)

Im in contract so dont want to be spending the earth on a phone (my current phone Galaxy S2 broke Dropped it in bath but also splattered screen as same time so its not worth the cost of fixing lol) I know the nokia lumia 920 dose it but i suspect that will be out of my price range when it comes out

Thanks for any help

Because i want a DC-HSPA+ device i get unlimited tethering with my contract and as of late ive been spending a lot of time away from home i got anywhere between 8 and 12 meg with the S2, 5-6 now with the 50 quid phone im using so with DC-HSPA+ i should get 16-24 (just been greedy i suppose so used to faster speeds lol)

and if im going to spend the doler i might as well have a newer phone thats going to be supported longer

After a bit of looking around the sony xperia T supports it but thats bout 350 so bit over budget really

yea its the same around here on o2, my cuz is with them run a speedtest on his phone the other week at 3AM to make sure the least users were online and it still oni peaked at about 2.5 max,
During the middle of the afternoon well about 4ish your lucky to get 0.5 lol i was with them before i switched to three cant say i miss the days of slow capped at 500meg usage internet lol,

Was paying o2 57+6 for unlimited calls and texts with the 500meg Bolton with no tethering

Now paying three 32 for 2000 any network mins 5000 3 to 3 5000 texts and truly unlimited internet with tethering my main calls were to people on three anyway so it seams a good switch just for a price point of view the internet is a big added bonus.

RE: DC-HSPA+ Phones
I do not think you are going to find anything affordable with DC-HSPA+ as it seems to only be included in LTE (4G) phones.

Even the standard Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II do not support it, its strictly limited to the LTE versions only.

yea i looked at the S3 then realized it was only on the LTE edition was so bummed out lol.

looks like i might have to stump up the extra 50 quid and get the sony Sony Xperia T not a bad phone really good cam

Just looked the SGS3 LTE is 450 minimum :/ think will defo pass on that lol

These seam to support it looks like a decent phone its a 4G phone too so would be ok for future (can pile it off on mi mum when i get a new one when my contract is up end of next year haha)

Seams three have bought some 1800 spectrum too to start roling 4G out them selfs next year
