Nokia Lumia 710 only £89.99 Pay as you go upgrade at Carphone Warehouse

ozkozk

I went in to purchase a Nokia Lumia 710 for £99.99 plus a £10 sim. However as it transpired if you have a pay as you go sim that you haven't purchased a phone on within the last 6 months, you can buy a handset for that sim for only £89.99.

Note that these upgrades can only be undertaken in store, not online. The handsets are completely unlocked. I purchased on O2 and now have my contract vodafone sim inside.

Terms & conditions

Virgin Media
It must be 6 months since joining Virgin Media or 6 months since last upgrade. Customer must have used number in the last 90 days to make a chargeable event.

It must be 6 months since joining Vodafone or 6 months since last upgrade. The customer must have made at least 3 out-going activities within the last 3 months.

    Good phone for the price but a dead in the water operating system.Horrible and boring to use,poor facebook app,no file transfer via bluetooth,no micro sd card slot,cant use your own music as ringtones,basicly worse customisation then an iphone and no update to wp8 only tango.Avoid and buy and ace.Not as smooth but a better phone to use.

    No1 in apt user names...!
    Come on, a 'better phone to use'? For who exactly? Your mum? Would she benfit from all the customisation and tweaking options etc? Of course not! For anyone who wants a phone to just 'work', then a wp device beats pretty much any android device out there right now.

    I don't believe ANY review has labelled WP 'horrible to use'!! There are things that can be thrown at WP, but horrible to use isn't one of them. By all unbiased opinions, it's the single most intuitive UI on a smart phone yet.
    Boring to use? Well, that's personal opinion. I find it great, clean, neat, and straight to what I want.
    Poor facebook app? Eh? Does everything I need, exactly WHAT is missing that is so vital? No BT File transfer? erm, so? Can't remember the last time I used it. Honestly, I can't. Nice feature perhaps, but hardly a deal breaker is it? I bet most users wouldn't know how to use it if it did have it! No MIcrosd slot? Ok, that's one I would like to have,but I've got the 800, and its got 16 gig, but still, I'd like the ability to have more. But no expandable memory is not unique to WP devices is it? You can use your music as ringtones, but you need to use an app to do it.

    Trolls accuse me of being a MS fanboi, well if having used both, and deciding that WP suits me, most of my family, and most people who see and use it, better than a similar android equivalent, then yes, label me up.
    But to most people, I am merely a tech fan who uses most toys, but wants a phone to be straight forward, hassle free and intuitve, so given the options, I choose WP.

    I can completely understand why, IF you want to fiddle, IF you want to flash new ROMS, and IF you want to spend all day adapting the interface to suit every little need and like, then Android is for you. It has a better range of apps, it has a better range of hardware and it has a huge array of choice.
    If you want a phone to just work, right out of the box, for £100, then this WP Nokia beats anything Android at the price range.

    Will it get WP8? No it won't. Will it stop working when WP8 appears? No it won't. Willl the apps stop working when WP8 apeears? No, they won't, and they wopn't stop releasing either. There are somewhere upwards of 15 million WP users out there, does anyone seriously believe that all the WP devs will dump WP7.5 for 8 the second it comes out, sacrificing a user base of that many for one with none? Of course not. Apps will be coming for a good while yet!
    Remember, WP7.5 apps will run on 8, so if a dev wants to ensure maximum customer base, they will be making them WP7 compatible for some time yet.

    God, I'm ranting. But I hate it when trolls accuse me of being a fanboy. I use tech, and it happens that my prefernce in this area is for a WP device. I guess that by simply not being a android fan I must therefore be attacked eh? I suppose that's what the internet is for.
    If you want to have a pop at something, back it up with facts, not frothing vitriol. And if youo want to throw accusations at me, back them up to rather than just screaming 'fanboy'.

    what would be better, this with windows mobile 7.5 or the soon to be released sony tipo which runs android 4.0? both about the same price, but the nokia has a 1.4ghz processor next to the tipo's 800mhz. from personal experience, android is utter dogsh*t (i think i used 2.3 coming down from iOS 4), but i can't begin to imagine anything windows is good.


    As an Apple fanboy I'd stick to what you know - I dont think you'd have the brains to handle either an android or windows phone. (_;)

    I only wish the OP was comprehensible. I can't decipher the second sentence.


    Here's how it works, if you have had a PAYG sim card (Voda, orange,o2,tmob,virgin) for at least 6 months and use it regulalry (i.e top it up) you can then upgrade for that price, you can only upgrade once in 6 months with the same sim card, you will need to have the sim card physically in store.

    I have this phone and love it, great price

    You'll have to fight the workers to get it for this price though, as they lie and give the other PAYG price of £99.99+£10 top up, which costs £20 more.

    I think you'll be ok - it very clearly states this price on the stickers in the shop.

    you don't have to fight with workers or anyone for that matter, it makes no difference to them !

    Wow, bargain.

    If only I could find a Lumia 900 for this sort of money....They still go for about £400 even on eBay,

    Worth noting that Windows Phone market share grew 166% in the last year, and that compared to Q2 last year, Q2 this year saw 292% growth

    WP phone sales have now climbed to circa 20% of those of the iPhone - not bad for a new OS.

    Depends on your preference, android has more apps, but windows will look much nicer/ run much faster.

    If you do want android, consider the miro (out soon i think) or the Desire C as well
