Looking at the new Lumia 520 Windows Phone? The Nokia smartphone is already listed on The Carphone Warehouse for just £11 with O2, but we've overlooked other mobile operators who have contracts that are even more affordable. If you're after a better deal, be sure to read on.
Orange, T-Mobile and Talkmobile are also offering plans with the Lumia 520 and no upfront fee included, which is a huge bonus. So what's the cheapest available contract? T-Mobile is at the top with a £7 per month plan. You read correctly, just £7 for a brand new Windows Phone 8 device.
Unfortunately, no data is included (odd for a smartphone plan) and subscribers will be restricted to just 50 minutes and 250 SMS per month. If you're after something slightly more, Talkmobile's cheapest option is £8.50 and sports 500MB data, 150 minutes and 5000 SMS. All plans are 24-month contracts.
It's worth noting that the red variant is exclusive to O2.

How is this phone so beautiful? This is what the iPhone will look like in 10 years...
I'm using the one I picked up today having ordered it on Monday and love it!
I got mine on PAYG though but I only spent ninety nine pounds to get it on O2. And the deal with them on that is imo better than the contracts paying ten pounds a month...
I made a forum post about it in the 520 section, check it out :D

That is one hell of a bargain!
This is a great deal for a desent smart phone. i really like what nokia are doing with windows phone and i think the devices they are now bringing to the market stand out with the best of each class. i cant wait to get a lumia 920 i have the 900 now but want the 920 because of the camera. the 520 looks a great phone for kids and i think alot of blackberry users will start to look at windows phone over the next 12 months if nokia keeps the price and designs as good as they are now.
