This deal has been up before, but it was expired after Dialaphone pulled the deal. Now the deal is back!

Basically, Dialaphone has a stock Samsung Galaxy S (that means totally unbranded and unlocked) on an 18 month O2 contract at £20 per month. Yes, the contract is crap (100 minutes, unlimited texts and no mention of data), but this deal is not about the contract. Use your own sim in the phone, or get a Simplicity sim, or even a giffgaff sim. If you go through Quidco or TCB, you'll get £35 cashback. You then downgrade the O2 contract after the 9th month (says you can on the O2 paperwork) to the £15 per month tariff. That way, you're only paying £280 for the phone over the course of the contract.


Click the link, then effective monthly cost on the table in the lower half of the page to see the £20pm x18m deal:

Total cost of the phone this way is:

9 x £20 = £180
9 x £15 = £135
TCB = -£35.00


= £280.00 spread over 18 months, interest free!



So basically, you can get this handset sim-free for £280, and just stick the O2 sim in a drawer. It works out cheaper than paying play.com £449 for it, or O2 £329, and this way you spread the cost over 18 months as well as paying less!


UPDATE 2: Deal no longer showing up when going though cashback sites. Not expiring, though, as £315 is still the cheapest you'll get this handset sim-free (still cheaper than the O2 PAYG deal, and this one comes with a contract and no up front costs).

O2 has confirmed that you can downgrade to the £15pm tariff at month 9.

What is the £15pm tariff like?

What is the £15pm tariff like?


Probably REALLY crap! I reckon 50 xnet calls per month. Like I said, this deal isn't for the contract, as that contract is crap for smartphone usage. This is just a really cheap (cheapest?) way to get a stock SGS.

There's a difference of £365 there!

Vodafone is far from being the best network. It has a fixed 500mb limit on its data per month. T-Mobile offer 1gb data on its non-smartphone "unlimited" tariffs, and 3gb on its android tariffs. If you go for T-Mobile, you can sometimes get them to switch you over to the 3gb FUP tariff and get another free flexible booster too (I got unlimited land lines). Giffgaff is a better and cheaper option than Vodafone! For £255 over the course of 18 months (7.50 for the first two months, then £15 a month), you'd get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data (no FUP). That, with the price of this phone, still works out cheaper than your vodafone deal.

To give you an idea, I have a T-Mobile contract. I pay £10 per month and get 300 minutes, 300 texts, unlimited landline calls and unlimited data (subject to a 3GB FUP). T-Mobile increased my data FUP limit from 1gb to 3 gb and gave me an extra free flexible booster when I told them I was using an android phone. They also gave me two new Galaxy Portals each with 100 minutes, unlimited texts (can change to unlimited landlines if I want to), unlimited data (subject to a 3GB FUP), plus an extra 100 minutes per month on each line for £7.50 a month. I think T-Mobile is certainly better than Vodafone.

Well for most people where the best coverage is usually the best network for them.

As for the deal if you a low user then this is a great deal. As for this vs the vodafone deal there is not much in it. Trying to get the limit moved from 1gb to 3gb on T-mobile is far harder than it used to be. So on this deal you get this phone for £280 and then for equivalent to the vodafone deal you would need to get the £20pm SIM which will give you the 900mins and 1gb data as vodafone but only 500 texts. So over the 18 months is £360 plus the £280 equals £640 so not much in it. Oh and with the vodafone deal you gat a 16gb phone.

With respect, the £40 deal has 1Gb data and the one above has none.

I'd also suggest that Vodafone is head and shoulders above any of the other providers for 3G, in London at least.

I went for this deal last time it was on and factored in a further saving. As a happy O2 broadband customer but wanting to move away from O2 for my mobile, I would have lost my £5 per month broadband discount unless I did an unwanted O2 topup of £10 every 3 months. Although I won't be using the O2 sim that came with the Galaxy, this low-end contract still gets me the broadband discount, saving me £60 (6 x £10) over the course of the 18 month contract. Oh, and I had an O2 payg sim with a few pounds of credit on it, and got this transferred to the new O2 contract as a credit against my next monthly payment.
Far and away the best deal I could find on the Galaxy - and delighted with the phone too!

Someone isn't getting it. This is not really about the contract. Its about getting a £350 phone for £280!

Theres no way that o2 can go back on the downgrade is there because im looking to get this deal but hardly makes sense if i pay £20 for 18 month for a sim im not using.

As stated in the first post, this deal is really for people who already have a contract and are looking to get the SGS sim free. This is the cheapest option in respect to that. Most people don't need 900 minutes, so a giffgaff contract would be the better and cheaper option - also, its unlimited data is truly unlimited at the moment.

Never heard of GiffGaff before, can some please explain how it works.
1. Do the sims work on o2 phones or do they need to be unlocked
2. Can you stock up on the goody bags now during the sale and use them one at a time over the next 12 months.
3. Are they likely to disappear in the next few months,.

thanks for the help

As far as I know, they piggy back off the O2 network, though I'm not sure if you need to unlock an O2 locked phone for them to work.

2: You can buy a max of 2 goodybags in advance during the sale, to last you two months. They've already extended the sale by one month, so it's possible it could be extended again.

3: I doubt they'll disappear overnight. They seem to be very popular and doing very well. Apparently, you can earn some sort of cash back through referrals and posting on their forums, too. I don't use them, so can't really say for certain. I'm sure someone who knows more than I will be along shortly...

I don't think it includes any data, which sucks considering they are selling the contract with a smartphone.

It says you will never pay more than £1 a day for data (subject to a 100mb FUP) for data used on that particular contract without a bolt on. If you want a bolt on, it will cost you £10 a month more, which is not worth it.So, if you are looking to use the contract that comes with the phone, you're better off going for the Orange deal posted here:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/free-samsung-galaxy-s-500mins-3000-/727786/#post9098696

There are probably other better deals out there too if you actually plan to use the contract.

It shouldn't change, no. If it does, then they give you a good reason to cancel the contract or at least allow you to downgrade as per the original terms, as it's a major change to the contract.

+ it doesn't appear to be listed as a merchant on either quidco or topcashback anymore. So no cashback there.

Yet I've found cheaper T-Mobile deals with the same amount of minutes and higher FUP for data, as well as a load of cashback on top. So I stand by what I said about the Vodafone deal being expensive. Also, I'll point out again that I posted this deal for people who already have a contract, as the contract that comes with the phone is crap. I even said that in the first post.

Apparently, that's for people who don't buy goody bags. You will still get unlimited data when you buy goody bags. As it stands right now, all giffgaff users get unlimited data, and not just those who buy goody bags. That's what's changing in Oct.

Just dropped mine from a height of about 2ft and the screen has completely shattered. There's a hole in it and everything. I'm heart broken, and this posting doesn't help lol! But yeah, judging from how easily it broke, some of you may want to avoid this one!

Ah that sounds awful. I would definitely send it in for repair, or maybe have a look into buying a replacement screen. That doesn't sound right really to be honest. Broke a bit too easily.

Wow it's like you didn't even read what I posted!
As stated before YES if you have a good pre existing contract this is probably the cheapest way to get the phone. The vodafone deal is comparable as the breakdown above tells you. As for guaranteeing 3gb (1gb is fine for most people) you have to go direct with t-mobile and for a free phone it's £35 per month on a 24 month contract (you get 1200 mins+ possibly £80 quidco).
