This is a fairly straight-forward deal from Phones4U. Basically, they're giving you a FREE Nokia N95 8GB version, in black, for free when you sign up to a £30 Vodafone tariff. Most other places either force you to sign up to an 18 month contract or charge you for this super high-end phone, so this isn't too bad at all. There's no cashback to worry about, so there's no risk, but if you wish you can purchase via QuidCo.com who are currently offering a tidy £50 cashback on this deal.

There's a choice of tariff on this deal. The two tariffs available are Anytime Calls 30 and Anytime Text 30. Anytime Calls 30 has an initial outlay of £30 per month, and offers 250 anytime, any network minutes and 100 text messages per month. Anytime Text 30 has an initial outlay of £30 per month, and offers 150 anytime, any network minutes and 500 text messages per month.

The Black Nokia N95 is a true example of mobile phone master class, as if you thought the current Nokia N95 is a fantastic machine then prepare to be blown away. The Nokia N95 Black is everything a mobile phone could aspire to be & everything a mobile phone user wishes it would be. The Black Nokia N95 is smart, attractive, advanced and more evolved than any phone ever produced to the public. Regardless of everyday demands or lifestyle, the Nokia N95 Black is to be marvelled by all, as crammed beneath its elegant structure lies a monstrous amount of technology awaiting release. One of the Black Nokia N95s key features is a 5 mega-pixel camera capable of multiple image formats through a world-class auto focus lens. Any sceptics not convinced by one of the mobile phone markets most powerful cameras will soon be converted once they realise the Black Nokia N95 contains a 8GB memory capable of holding in excess of 6000 songs. Additionally, the Nokia N95 Black has built-in GPS satellite navigation maps covering over 100 countries, so navigating and taking images of your travels has never been easier.

agree at the end of the day you will have spent a lot on this contract if you are a moderate to heavy user and exceed your usage. This is the way to tie people in a contract and make them pay (read realize) later.

Also personally vodafone has been bad experience for me so wont touch them, they want money (read have the right to direct debit) even though you return the phone w/o using in the first 14 days without even activating your connection.

dont see your problem with this as the handset is worth in excess of £300 in its self, the deal is up their cuz its the lowest tariff you can get it free on well worth it
#11
Not too bad. Could really do with fewer mins/texts and inclusive data personally, but a hot deal nonetheless.
#12
Freezing!
#13
cold for me, not worth £360 for the phone which will soon be discontinued.

At the top of the thread where it says the temperature (currently 69°) there's a red arrow pointing up and a blue one pointing down. Click red to add heat ;-)

Respectfully disagree completely. Best deal for an N95 8Gb there is. All the great features of this phone won't magically stop working when the N96 comes out!

You don't need to see my problem with this. The phone isn't worth in excess of £300, they go on HUKD for about £200, so £160 for the contract.

Better off getting this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/234775/nokia-6300-free-phone-with-12-month/

And then buying a Nokia N95 from somewhere, even eBay! Granted, cashback headache, but it ends up cheaper and you get an extra good phone.

Buy N95 for £200
12 months free contract
Won't count the quidco as it's the same
Sell Nokia 6300 for £50
Total: £150

Rather than the £360 this costs.

Thus, absolutely freezing.

cold, y not get a cheap deal with the SE C902!

I'm on orange and pay £25 a month for 600 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited internet and got the nokia n95 8gb free.

I agree its a good price BUT i would recommend people visit a phone shop and thoroughly test this phone before you embark on a 12month contract. The reason i say this is that I have the N95 8GB and there are 2 major flaws on it that, as yet, have not been fixed plus smartphones are quite sluggish, bulky and hard to get used to for novices and might not be your cup of tea once you've tried it!

The first big problem (i have with it) is with the 8gb of built in RAM (aka mass memory). Its extremely slow for copying large files too (like movies or satnav maps) and because its embedded you cant upgrade it like you can on the original N95 or most other phones. The second problem is (i think) related to the first problem. The inbuilt video camera is OK (640x480 resolution I think) but after a few recordings has a problem where the video begins to stutter every few secs when using high quality. You can get round this various ways by either, formatting the mass memory (a bit severe once you've loaded the phone up!) or backing up all the videos you've done so far and then removing them. You can also reduce the video quality or use the "phone memory" but this reduces recording time considerably. As i say, i think this is related to the memory being too slow but it may be fixed in a firmware update and support from nokia has been quite good so far.

On the plus side, still pictures are pretty good and I recently got TomTom working on it even though it is not officially supported. Other satnav programs also work such as garmin mobileXT but be warned, you have to pay for nokia's own MAPS program! I should also say that the WIFI / web browser is OK (although no substitute for a PC as its very fiddly to type in URLs without either a touchscreen like the iphone or a proper keyboard). Plus where I live there arent many hotspots and when at home use my PC as it's much easier, comfortable and versatile for web browsing but i guess its a nice feature to have on your phone, just in case!

I think at the end of the day it depends what you plan to use it for and i know there are loads of good applications for this phone other than the camera but I just thought I would post a few words of warning from an experienced user of this model and personally I would advise you to wait for the N96 (out soon) or the new samsung which, i believe, has the same features (wifi, satnav etc) but has a higher megapixel camera.

PS: the problems i have mentioned can be read about at the following forum and there is loads of good support here too.. http://www.n95users.com/forum/ Hope this helps someone!

Anyone thinking of buying this, instead pickup a Nokia N95 8GB on eBay (make sure it's the right model; some people are selling the Original N95, with a 8GB SD Card, which would be fine if not for the gaping differences between the rest of the firmware and hardware!

Next, pickup either a cashback contract, either one where you have to fill in forms:

12 Month Contract
LG Viewty
700 anytime anynetwork and 250 texts (Vodafone Anytime Talk 40)
Phones4U (£50 Quidco)
£40 a month
£440 cashback from Phones4U
= £3.33 a month, or -£0.83 a month if Quidco tracks (and it will)

That handset is worth £150 on eBay; around £135 profit after eBay and PayPal fees

Offsetting selling the LG Viewty for £135 profit, against buying the N95 8GB for £250, you're only paying £115 - saving £195, and getting almost 3 times as much free texts and calls (which is where the bigger saving will be made - exceeding your inclusive minutes and texts is expensive!).

Hope this helps someone :).

Voted cold! But too be honest it's because of the handset! It's just not worth spending all that on it. I mean there's better deals and cashbacks and other gifts avail for GOOD handsets. I'm sure this handset appeals to some people and it should, its full of gadjets and looks nice so I thought I'll link this site for people to check the deals avail for it:
http://www.mobileshopdirect.co.uk/show.asp?network=&gift=&hs=n958gb

Quidco supports most of the sites, so cash is avail from quidco but I'd read the reviews on the site that support the deals before signing up with the contract.
Hope it helps!:thumbsup:

If you want to ask a sensible question, here's one: why not sign up for that contract, say, 10 times and pocket over a grand ;).

This one is still available.

Works out £360 for the phone, ridiculously expensive, cold.

The cost price of this phone is £350 (as at August 1st), so £360 seems pretty bloody reasonable to me!
#27
Go through topcashback.co.uk instead of quidco for £60 :)
#28

Yes, but noone here at HUKD buys things at cost price!!

It seems alright I suppose, I got my N95 8GB free on Vodafone with 600 mins/Unlimited texts for £35/18 month contract. Also at the time got £130 quidco cashback on it which I should be getting back beginning of september :thumbsup:.

I don't think the Viewty made it to the front page and it's now out of stock (and they don't expect any more until after the deal has ended).

I didn't post it too prominently 'cos there's people who live off these deals; if you've got a good credit rating you can make a few thousand a month just signing up for the right cashback contracts!
#35
To those voting cold, you state the phone will cost £360 but don't forget that you would pay for calls as well if you were to buy it SIM free.

Undecided as to whether it is a hot deal but I get frustrated when phone deals are slated because "You end up paying for your Wii" or ""The phone ain't free" or similar.

If you were to pay £15-£20 on a PAYG phone that YOU BUY (which some people do), why not get a nice phone or a PS3 to boot? AND spread te cost?

Even if you pay a few bob more you ave someting to show for it!
#36
ThunderBolt, if you read the rest of the posts you'll see people suggesting to buy the N95 simfree and then buy a separate contract with 12 months free - you get your calls and texts and save money.

I can't believe this has made it to the front page despite so many people posting details of how to get it cheaper. I guess it's because it was posted by a mod.
