I'm trying to find a way in which I can write apps and use them on my own device without having to pay for an App Hub membership. I know that there's a student offer where the membership is free, but I'm not a student... Is there another way???
All I wanna do is code some apps and try them out on my windows phone. I'm a complete beginner so I have no near-future ambitions for publishing an app to the marketplace, I just want to practice and be able to use the apps I create on my device.
Any help, guys? Thanks :)

If you get in contact with your region's windows phone evangelist, they might be able to hook you up with a free app hub subscription. In Australia I believe that guy is Dave Glover (@dglover) but I have no idea about the UK.
If you happen to know someone who already has a membership they could possibly unlock your phone for you (assuming it doesn't breach any membership terms or conditions). I'm pretty sure each membership allows you to unlock up to 3 phones but they would need to physically connect your phone to a PC to unlock it.

If you are a student then you're able to get free membership to the App Hub, search "Dream Sparks".IceyApps: IceyApps.com | Facebook.com/IceyApps | @IceyApps

I did this once for my friend who wanted the exact same thing you do now. I use my AppHub account to unlock his phone. But it need the me to be physically present with the phone and PC, as I don't feel comfortable to pass on my password. I have no idea about the number of device one account can unlock though.
