I have just upgraded my phone with vodafone and received the N95 8GB new phone free of charge on a 24 month contract. The monthly charge is £20, with the first three months at half price. I was also told that I could upgrade after 21 months - all of this took a bit of bartering - the deal includes 75 anytime minutes and 100 texts per month. I have added £450 as acost but this is the total outlay over the term.

two years with an N95 - ouch
#2
Out of interest, what do you spend on an average month (was the £20 contract the same as you were on previously)?

I'm on a £15/mo deal and very rarely go over this, so I'm wondering how much bartering power I have (not a lot I'm guessing).
#3
lol... dude u just got ripped off... i bought N95 from O2 3 months back and on a 12 month contract. got the phone free for £30 / month and guess what, 800 mins and 500 text free... i use all my minutes :) never mind
#4
probably about that - will tend to use up to that to get the most out of it. I have just been stung with coolnewmobile so £20 per month is reasonable in my opinion
#5
What a bad move, even worse if it's an upgrade.
In 6 months time, you'll probably want a better phone.

£20 per month for 24 months.
So that's £40 per month on a normal 12 month contract. See?
#6
no it is £20 per month on a 24 month contract - there is a distinct difference !!
#7
Typically, if you phone to get an upgrade, it is not the best deal you could possibly get. It is when they phone back after you threaten to cancel where you can get a good deal
#8
It is a nice phone though, no problems with me. The best deal i found for it was here.

Is the N95 8gb only available with Vodafone until the end of the year?

I was wondering if there were any contract deals around with the N95 8gb on T-Mobile (so I can get a Web n Walk deal).. ideally only a 12-month contract

So far I've only been able to find:

Play.com have the phone unlocked for £499
and
Expansys have the phone for £604.95

No mention of it on T-Mobile's official site (only the v1 N95)

This phone isn't to be confused with the normal N95. At the moment it is exclusive to Voda, but it is indeed extremely nice. I've had mine for a couple of weeks. I got mine for free with a £25 line rental, 250 texts 200 mins but with stop the clock. The normal upgrade cost is £450 on a £25 contract, but I got mine for free since my last few monthly phone bills have been in excess of £200

On that link that Pipster posted (Mobile Phones Direct), Vodafone seem to be offering an upgrade for £178.99 ("UPGRADE - No change to your Vodafone Pay Monthly number or monthly bills"). Although I haven't heard of that company before ?

Vodafone seem to be pushing this phone at the moment.

I got one this week. Free on a 12 month contract @ £25. I dont usually go over my free mins either so I think that was a good deal. :thumbsup:
#13
mmm my mate upgrade his vodafone on an £18 a month contract and managed to get an new N95 8gb for free pretty easily and this was only an 18 month contract not your 2 yrs so maybe u could have done better?
#14
dude, 24 month contract = stupid

just upgraded to a 8600 luna free, £30 a month 18 month contract, upgrade in 15 months, 200 mins cross net + 200 texts, 6 months half price
#15
I am pleased with it any way and to get Spiderman 3 was a bonus - had 6230 for 3 years so happy enough to keep this 1 1/2.

James, there is nothing wrong with your deal.

It is the N95 8GB and most people don't seem to be understanding the diference between the standard N95 and the new version that you have.

Whilst it is a long contract at 24 months, it isn't a hefty one at £20 and you'll probably be able to haggle something out of them 12 months down the line.

Enjoy the N95 8GB and make the most of it by down loading films, music and ebooks on to it. The camera is fantastic, GPS superb and if you're in a 3G or 3.5G area make sure you have a data package for all the web pages.
#17
Yeah, I may be wrong but I think a lot of people are confusing the N95 models. The original deal is posted is fair, given that the entire term of the contract is cheaper than the PAYG price. I think you did well.

Enjoy the phone. I certainly will. I reckon it'll be one of the best phones you can get, or at least very competitive in 2 years time!
#18
What's the best Voda PAYT deal is for this phone? & where?
#19
I hope they have ironed out the problems in the 'new' N95. I had so many problems with mine (bought at launch) that it ended up on eBay
#20
i will wait till it be cheaper price !! kool gadget anyway
#21
Have to say having been looking out there for the last week at which phone to get the N95 8GB is much better than the N95 and has picked up all the floors that the N95 used to have, many reviews have said the 8GB version has been released to give the iphone a run for its money!!!!.

I dont think this deal deserves the cold vote and think that many have failed to note it is the 8GB version which is currently only on vodaphone or simfree only, so well done:thumbsup:

They must have updated them from the standard N95 version then as the camera on that was awful and took ages before you could take a shot and then another age to take another shot, and as for the GPS well that was even more disappointing and could barely lock on even when on foot, however i can find no mention anywhere that they have improved either of these....

Who remembers when Nokia made good phones?

V12 fimrware is a big improvement in the operating of the phone and the later models are better build quality and have better battery life.

For anyone using the GPS, you must have V12 firmware loaded and A-GPS enabled.

Always the same for new phones, need a couple of firmware updates to sort out the bugs. Just ask any honest (not fanboy) SE K850i owner what they think of their new SE phone.

I have no connection with this company nor am I recommending it, I have merely posted the cheapest PAYT I've seen.

I got one when they were released so that could have been why i was unhappy with it, I had to send three handsets back due to the wobbley slider problem which didnt help either...

The N82 looks nice.

Where did you get this deal from?
In store or online? Thanks!

I upgraded with voda initially the day this phone was released. They wouldn't budge on a 24 month contract. And they wanted me to pay £14.99 for the phone.

I took the deal had a good play with the phone to see if I liked it (which I did).

So I cancelled the upgrade and sent the phone back.

Tried to haggle a better deal, but voda are so up there own back sides they were having none of it (I was on a £30 tariff and willing to go up to a more expensive 1 to get a good deal, but they refused).

So a couple of days later I walked into Phones4U, and got the same phone, free on an 18 month upgrade, 750 mins, Unlimited (3000) texts, Unlimted Mobile Internet (120mb) for £45 a month, and I also got £90 cashback.

So all in all, it works out at £40 a month after the cashback, and I can upgrade after 14 months.

Not an amazing deal, but better than voda would give me direct.

Yes but this is the new 8gb version which is a little more than the bog standard N95
#30
Two things I dislike about the N95:
The battery lasts me about 24 hours (but I do use the MP3 functionality for 2 hours a day).
The bloody slider, once it's in your pocket it will slide backwards and forwards, only fractionally but it unlocks the phone which on a bad day will result in you randomly phoning people or web surfing as has happened to me before.
#31
Seems to be sorted on the new one, i've certainly not had any problems and the battery has never been completely flat when i've recharged it, i think it tends to last in excess of 48 hours.

:viking:

Have had a N80 since April 06, its amazing how lazy one can be with a cough bad phone. Too much stuff on it for battery life.

Thinking of upgrading or is it downgrading to a Nokia 6300 or 6500 classic. Like I said I am only thinking, so could be another year, lol.
#33
The key to a good deal and a good mobile phone upgrade is to wait until your current contract is about to end and dont accept anything that is being offered and you will be amazed what you can get, Vodafone have given me a Nokia N81 8GB on £12.50 a month contract, superb cant fault the phone or contract, and this has now worked for me for the last two years.
#34
£12.50/month for a 12 month contract? How many minutes/txt per month?
#35
Been researching a new phone for a few months now.

The Nokia N82 is a new phone that definitely deserves a mention for all those considering the N95 8gb

My shortlist is from:
Nokia N95 8gb
Nokia N82
Nokia N95
HTC TyTN II (aka Vario III)
SE K850i (perfect except no Wifi)

Im impressed, I am struggling to get an 8gb N95 out of Vodafone on an upgrade. Average spend is £38 per month, , contract is £35 - 500mins and 1000texts

Current offer is 18month renewal, £50 for the handset and either 9months half price mobile internet or 6 months free music store. I emailed them back and asked for both :)

Am I to understand I can go into Phones4U and perhaps get a better offer for the upgrade there? Because your deal sound close to what I want??

Thanks

The deal I got is a standard tariff that Phones4U offer, and I think they give £50 cashback as normal now.

I just haggled and they offered me £90 instead.

To them it's no different if it's an upgrade or a new contract, they were happy to do it eitherway at the same cost.

However when I asked about a lower monthly tariff they were not able to help.

The thing was, my original plan was £30 a month and my bills were always around £40 anyway, so for me it's great.

I wouldn't recommend Phones4U - customer services are non existent and if your phone breaks it takes ages for them to a) acknowledge that it's broken, b) get it fixed c) send it back fixed. The reason I broke it down into 3 stages was because that was the information I got from customer services every time I chased, they did however give me a replacement phone for the 3 months they had mine for, although it was admittedly a phone that hadn't been made since 1997 and could have quite easily filled up a womans handbag on it's own.

This thread should not even have a price because it is all down to your bargaining skills. Most people would get a more expensive price while a few others might even get a better price. It is all down to how Vodafone values you as a customer and want to keep your business (ie you pay on time every month for many years) and if they really want to keep you and you are good at bargaining, you get a better deal than others.
#40
From previous experience I would never phone Vodafone and ask for an upgrade. Their sales people have limited access to appealing deals.

I always write to them and give them notice of my intention to end the contract. Their retentions team then phone and they have access to better deals (or just try harder!).
