Step by step guide for this deal (Thanks, copied from Vassy4u :-) )

1) Follow the get deal button, purchase any of the tarrifs.

2) Receive your phone and sim card.

3) Put the sim card into your phone and go onto myO2 (app or website) and from there request the unlock code.

4) Call 202 from the same sim card as it will make things much easier, go straight to the I want to leave o2 department or something like that (I think it's thinking of leaving us? Press something) as that will connect you with the right people much quicker.

5) Tell the person you want to pay your device in full and cancel the airtime. They will ask you why, tell them you don't think the airtime is a good value for money, but you want to keep the phone because you think it's an outstanding value for money. They will ask you for card details, you tell those details and that's it, they cancel it for you in about an hour.

6) You own the phone from that point, assumed that you have done this straightaway, there won't be any charges, otherwise you will have to pay as much airtime as you have used.

7) Unlock code will come through in about 2 to 48 hours.

Hot. Great price.

To all the moaners, its not "hassle" or a "faff around" you simply order the phone, request unlock code (if you want it unlocked) ring up and cancel the airtime.

Cheap headline price but I don't think this will get the next iOS update and quite honestly 8gb is useless even for a kids phone or a spare (i say this finding my 16gb phones too restrictive for basic day to day requirements).

I'd say spend your money on a moto g4 play at this price point, which is what I've just ordered for my dad despite using Apple myself.

Then you send it back in the first 14 days but it's not a problem people have been doing it on here for years Good price if this is the phone for you.

great price and very simple. I did this at xmas for a s6 for my son. I was dubious at first and thought it would be a faff as many others above but it was simple and no problems.

With the current iOS 8GB isn't going to have a lot of room left over. Will be forever fighting for space.

Both kids have 16GB 5S and that's even difficult to manage by time they start loading up apps etc.

The phone is obsolete, Apple doesn't sell sell any phone less than 32Gb. Its a better bet t wait for similar deal for iphone SE or 6, at least have 16 Gb.

Ive bought a couple of phones from O2 recently. One arrived without a battery. The amount of time I had to spend on phone calls was more than the battery was worth.Talking to someone in South Africa (or wherever their call centres are based) was totally unhelpful. Their online support just ran me around in circles as did their telephone support for several days. Probably the worst Customer Service ever. I never did get a battery.
I do wonder if half the O2 posts are self promotion.

My Mrs has a iPhone 5 that's got a fault which seems a standard fault with those phones but its in A1 condition so I looked at getting it repaired. Went on Apple site, filled in form etc & it turns out Robin from Sherwood now robs the poor for Apple - they wanted £280 to repair the phone !!
Which is when I found this offer which considering its guaranteed for a year, I thought was a brilliant deal !
( But in the end I actually bought this one for her :-) ;

and then watch o2 hold you to term after paying off the device, which is what they have done to me after getting the 5s refresh deal before xmas. Sent the bill, called up oh yes its a mistake but then still whipped £343 out of my bank account and now struggling to get it back grr

I had a similar experience with O2. I bought a 6S from them which was classed as "Perfect". The thing constantly rebooted and was unusable from day1. O2 told me to goto apple. Apple told me they would not touch it because it was out of their warranty, but they did look at the logs and told me that it was in a shocking state and had serious hardware issues and was beyond repair. O2 have been giving me the run around for 2 months. They have had the phone twice and sent if back saying they fixed it but the phone still reboots about 10 times a day. I am still waiting for a resolution. I have spend hours in queues at O2 being passed from queue/department to another and then another. I have visited an O2 shop 3 times and apple store twice. But still have a faulty phone. Never again will I buy anything from O2.

Good point. I should have done this.

But I was told by O2 that apple would swap the phone under the device warranty. The whole process of speaking to O2/Apple & arranging an appointment took so long that by the time I went to the apple store expecting the phone to be replaced the 14 days had passed. I guess I should have asked for a replacement instantly, but I believed O2 when they said apple will just replace the phone if I call into an apple store.

Yes. I have a case open. I was promised a new phone to be delivered tomorrow before 10:30. Only then to receive a text from a different department to say there's no stock and they will contact me when more arrive.
