#2
will that be for PAYG or Contract do you know?
#3

#4
Very unlikely and too good too true.what would o2 gain with all the old 2gs 3gs every one would be swapping if this is true.

Fingers crossed though :)

My friend at O2 told me they are gonna to be free on 1 month contracts if you trade in any 2 phones:thumbsup:

Well if this for a contract phone the deals crap. I expect to be being paying well under £100 for a 16 gig 4g phone on my current o2 tarrif and I'll still have approx £200 worth of 3G 16 gig phone. If this is for a pay as you go its bargain of the century. Can't see it myself but who knows.
#12
cold deal - check [url]www.cex.co.uk[/url] - they are offering 200ish for a good condition 16g 3g s phone on o2 and if its in mint condition u get £280 cash. the 4g will prob be around 150£ on the 35£ or £40 tariff which is what most ppl opt for, so really if this is true ur post they are only paying u 100£... COLD
#13
I hope this is true.

If the usual Dollars = Pounds then the 16GB 4G is going to be £199. O2 currently offer a cash back of £173 for the 3G 16GB.
#14
hot if true. can see people buying damaged iphones from ebay though. Unless o2 want a working iphone instead.
#15
Even if they did, which I highly doubt, iPhone 4 is likely to be the same price as the 3GS is now, so either £149/89 (I think) on the most common 2 contracts - £35/£40 18 month (according to someone I know that works at O2), that would mean they're actually giving you, at most, £100 for an old iPhone.

You'll get more on eBay or even from some of those mobile recycling websites.

I just read online that O2 are looking to waver fees for early upgrades and allow people to get the iphone 4g it states

"O2 has recently announced new mobile tariffs including a reduced rate upgrade to the 4G iPhone for its contract customers.

The deal includes £25 per month for 100 UK minutes, 500mb data and unlimited texts on a two-year contract, rising to £30 on an 18-month deal. The company is also offering unlimited minutes deals from £60 per month. However unlimited data plans are not available.

O2 has also said that anyone who is still in contract can pay just £20 per month but the offer is only available between 24th June and 24th July.

The downside to this offer is that customers will have to agree to be tied into another contract. Also, those who currently are eligible for an upgrade will be able to get hold of the iPhone 4 online or in O2 shops on launch day; additional early upgrade fees are being waived.

For new customers, O2 has also announced that the new iPhone will be available on pay as you go as well as contract. However, the company hasn’t yet released any details of pricing for either payment plans.

Unlike the 3G iPhone, the 4G version makes use of the micro SIM (as used in the iPad) rather than the usual SIM card. As such, anyone upgrading will also have to switch to this newer card.

All the networks will be competing shortly when the iPhone is launched. 3UK is the latest company to announce it will be stocking the handset"

Has anyone heard anything like this?:?
#19
just watch the prices at CEX drop if o2 do anything like this :-)
#20
I think they will be charging £50 as upfront fees rather than charging £100 or £150..So you will get £100 for your old phone...

I doubt if they do that for £50 because everyone will take that offer.....so o2 will get all the old models back and people will not take new contracts for new 4g..

My mate told me that I should take Charlie to Candy Mountain, seems a great deal up there.

you might find that for early upgrades it's £20/month on each of the remaining months the current contract rather than the usual monthly rate, then have to take out a new iphone4 contract(e.g. you are on a £40/month contract with 10months left, you will have to pay £200 rather than £400 to buy out the remaing contract. Then you take out a new £40/month contract and pay £x for the iphone4)
#23
also the unlimited date usage is capped now, its no longer unlimited!!!!

this seems to be the case, their 'special offer' is letting you pay £20 a month for the remaining contract, which is kinda S*** if like me you just started a 24month one, ah well,

Perhaps a little off-topic but have seen a couple of people mention CEX - Be careful with these guys, they're not the worst company in the world but can be a little trigger happy in downgrading the condition of your phone which can have a big impact on the price. They also flat out refuse to explain why they've downgraded the condition.

Also, iPhones are selling well on eBay at the moment. Just got £375 for my 3GS 32GB 12 months old. CEX would have given me £270.

Iphone 3gs trade in at Carephone Warehouse is £230

Yeah, they should just let you out of the 24 month contract for free and give you a free iPhone 4 as compensation for your inconvenience. Customer service these days eh? Pah!

Just a quick warning. If you upgrade you rhandset you will be forced to go onto the new Iphone tarrfis.

They are terrrible:
1. they are now going to charge you 20p per picture messaging (with the current one it is 4 texts taken from your allowance.

2. The minute allowance is being reduced (ie if you have a £45 tarrif then at the monet you get 1200 mins, the new one only gives you 900 for the same money.

3. Voicemail will no longer be free and taken from your minute allowance.

4. Worst of all they are now capping the data. The whole point of having an iphone is to have unlimited data.

I am not going to upgrade mine! Will probably buy on pay as you go.

ye it will b on 35 pound a month on a 24 month contact

I'm in the same boat and also don't like the look of the new O2 tariffs. I'll probably ask to leave (contract was up on last week) and see what they do. If they won't improve the data allowance I'll be off to Orange. I suspect that it will be way too expensive to go the PAYG route.
#34
rubbish deal..get new one i guess for about £50-200, and sell you old one like an iphone 3g 16gb for about £200-250 on ebay
#35
As an o2 employee I would love to know where your friend is getting his information as it is absolutely nowhere to be found on the internal intranet. Take this with a pinch of salt people - of the hundreds+ o2 employee's who likely use this site on a daily basis - strange how nobody's backed this up ehh?

There's no way in hell this is true because £50 for it on contract ONLY if you trade in your existing iPhone is a terrible deal, especially since handset pricing hasnt been released. And it's impossible to get this for P&G. The 8GB 3G still costs £350 and the 3GS costs £450. The 16GB 3GS will only get you £230 when you recycle it with o2. In essence what you are saying is you'll get an iPhone 4 16GB for a total of £280. Sorry, never gonna happen!!

edit: Better yet, the 8GB iPhone 2G only gets you £82. Thus the iPhone 4 potentially costing £132. I mean come on, didnt you even think about this 'deal' before posting? Don't believe everything you hear, even from a friend... 'cos he's been talking absolute bull**it to you.

People do not realise that with the increasing use of smartphone (Iphones etc), apps and phones will use much more data than present.

The phone companies are not stupid which is why they are now stopping unlimited data or chraging more for it.

Anyone with a free data plan should hold on to it for dear life!

Thinking alone those lines myself but waiting to see what T-Mobile come out with for their T-Mobile deals before I decide what to do. But have one on pre-order with Apple as another option.
#38
Well I for one am thinking of buying a sim free phone. Whilst the phone will cost a lot, the benefits of keeping a tarrif with unlimited data (which thankfully O2 cant take from you) outweigh this cost.

HOLD ON TO YOUR UNLIMITED DATA TARRIFS!

Pound to a penny they will be similar (if not identical) to Orange - they can hardly undercut them as they're now one and the same.

Maybe, but I was also thinking that they may just come out with higher data limits, I may be wrong but I think they allow up to 3GB on their current 'unlimited' plans. Can anyone confirm this?

Another option may be for me to move my number from O2 to a 1 month rolling T-Mobile contract if the data allowance is generous.
