When the original Galaxy Note came out in the UK, it was met with a certain amount of skepticism from consumers. However, Samsung obviously knew what it was doing, as the device has gone on to sell really well. Fast forward a few months, and it's time for round 2: the Galaxy Note II comes with a bigger screen, a more comfortable aspect ratio, and it's available from today on Three.

The cheapest monthly plan for the phone is £34 for the 'Ultimate Internet 500.' That gives you truly unlimited data, 5000 text messages, and 500 minutes every month. If you want more minutes, you can choose to opt for the One Plan instead, which will put you back £36 a month and bump you up to 2000 any network minutes and 5000 same network minutes. Both of these plans require an up-front cost of £69 for the phone itself.


If you prefer, you can choose to go Pay As You Go for £499.99. As long as you top-up £15 every month, you'll get the same truly unlimited data package as you would in a contract, as well as 300 minutes and 3000 texts.

If you want to buy the Galaxy Note II, you can do so from today, either by visiting Three's website or going in-store.

    Hmm, decisions decisions - Three or EE?

    whichevers cheapest for me. all the texts are pointless for me. i use skype to text and call people for the most part so data is the most important part by far.

    edit - 24 month contract? heeeeeell no! 18 max. no phone is worth a 2 year contract. my sgs2 is old in the tooth now. with intel getting in on the game and more competition coming - this will be an abacus by then.

      ok, i went against my own advice - but with good reason. got the note 2 via o2 for 200 and 10.50 a month for 24 months. sweet deal!

    Is Three regarded as one of the mobile phone provider company's in England(whole UK too?) that has best coverage, price and/or speed? Curious since i am moving there in less than a month. :P

      Coverage across the UK is generally good from all, though LTE is highly restricted right now but 3.5G aka HSPA+ is common. Provided you arent literally in the middle of nowhere like in the highlands of Scotland you should get some degree of coverage. Any town is going to have strong reception.

      Three is generally the cheapest but there is a good amount of competition and prices are consistently cheaper than in the US.

    When does the Galaxy Note 2 come to Sprint, or the US?
