Been into my local Vodafone Experience store this evening and they had 3 of these in stock for contract. As everyone is aware this is going onto PAYG any day. However to speed things up they agreed to sell a contract handset on PAYG. This is a practice that any store can do. You may have to pay £10 for a top up however if you have an voda PAYG number or contract number you dont need to get the top up.
I am not sure if PAYG stock will be locked but the handset I got was sim unlocked already and is currently using my Virgin sim card in it.
I will post reciept in the first post for proof.
At this price it knocks the other deals out of the water.
