We rather like the Samsung Galaxy S II - you can read our thoughts on this tasty Android smartphone here - and now you can get one for next to nowt. Three is offering the 4.3in - handy if you're one of the many folk who favour a large display - dual-core handset for free on a £25-a-month two-year contract. The catch: you have to …

I've seen plenty of deals with no upfront fee at that price.
In fact I got an S2 a few months back via Tesco's Mobile shop (actually on T-Mobile) for no upfront fee and with more minutes and data than that for £20 a month..
Can be had much much cheaper...
Alternatively you can find this phone with double the minutes and triple the data for £17.88 a month with line rental redemption, even without the hassle of the redemption it's only £26 a month and on a network that's not a complete travesty.
Good try at bagging yourself a freebie though
Better deals elsewhere...
There's been better deals for the S2 way before Christmas. I got an unbranded S2 under Orange Panther for 26/month, with more data and texts, plus additional cashbacks. With Orange Panther swappables you can get a Deezer subscription for free as well, which means I have my music sorted for the next two years...
