If you want a freerunner, or any other phone that you're network
doesn't offer directly, you can tell the sales people that you don't
want a phone from them but would prefer money off your bills
instead. The mobile phone market is quite competitive so they tend to
be willing to accommodate what you want. I'd doubt you're likely to
get enough to cover the total cost of a freerunner unless your on an
expansive tariff or are willing to sign a really long contract, but
you never know, and if you can get a chunk of it the freedom and
features might be worth the extra bit.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
