Handset = £149.99
£13.50 x 24 = £324.00
Quidco Cashback = £130.00

Total= £343.99 (£14.34 p/m)

Seems like a great price to me!

EDIT:
Forgot to mention, the Quidco required a purchase of an accessory to get the £130.00 cashback.
These range from £4.99 Socks > £19.99 Speakers.

You might be able to remove the £3 month internet after the first month (as it is a bolt on) further reducing the total cost to £275 with quidco cashback (£10.50 p/m) - Thanks Drew101 for the tip!

Couple of things OP:

You can remove the internet as it's a bolt on, saving £3 a month. So after one month of paying £13.50, the cost becomes £10.50. After 24 months that's £255. Plus £20 (150-130) the phone's cost comes to £275.

£275 for a Samsung Galaxy S2, including 50 mins and 250 texts p/m for 24 months. Read the deal before you vote cold people.

Topcashback didnt track for me with the HTC desire s deal... so i think quidco and TCB are pretty much same. dont jump in thinking cashback is going to be paid, its a 50/50 chance

My Quidco tracked no probs with the Desire S deal.

Not sure why this deal isnt on fire right now, less than around £280 for a top of the range dual core phone recently released...surely that has to be a good deal!!!

I'm not a fan of Samsung phones to be honest but I've looked at the reviews and videos for this and it looks like a good piece of kit. In saying that I did try it out in a phone shop recently and it seemed to 'freeze' and lag however I defo wouldnt generalise that to all these units. Unit in phone shop was prob a prototype and defective.

Had I not gone for the Desire S deal then I'd prob went for this one instead.
#12
OMG! You, sir, have just made my day. Due to my stupid bank refusing payment I thought I missed this great deal (CB was reduced to £50 from £90 but now a whooping £130!!). You can remove the internet booster after receiving the cb, say after 20 months, and it comes out as less than £300. Amazing!
#13
when you checkout it doesnt accept the order. tried with 2 cards. (sorry there has been a error with your order please try again or call us on).

anyone getting this problem?
#14
Trying to complete the order just results in the O2 website saying my card doesnt work and i can try another (although with no option to go back and try another), went through it twice and got the same thing both times (my cards are working fine).

Not sure if they dont allow orders at this time or something, but theres definitely something up with their website for me!

Same story for me :( Missed out on the TCB deal after the cashback dropped, so this is perfect as I prefer quidco. Will try again in the morning. Cheers OP.
#17
The thing with the card happened to me and I used an older card on the same account (I have a 2-in-1 sort of account). Then I was refused credit and O2 credit check said that was because my bank denied payment. I will phone them tomorrow to see what's the deal. My cards work perfectly fine as well.

i had the card problem twice using a mastercard. used a visa debit card and ordered went through fine. thanks op.

whats the point in having a top of the range andriod phone with no internet?

as soon as you start to connect to the internet it wont take long to go past the 100mb allowance and if you remove this to save £3 youll soon be going past that amount
#20
I've been looking at all of the permutations for this phone with a plan to getting it after pay day. This was one of the deals I'd discounted as 100Mb internet seemed too low for practical use but I suppose you'd need to check how much the internet costs would add to your bill when you go over the inclusive amount.

If memory serves (can't get on the o2 site on my phone) the 500Mb deal with 100 mins and 500 texts in only an extra £3 or so though so still a great deal.
#21
This is the spreadsheet I put together for comparison:
https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AsPYMs_oRsYIdEJtbHBNTkJkUXZCU01ZdnppbW5iRmc&hl=en_GB&authkey=CI-d51U

Figures were correct when I put them in last week but please don't rely on them.

I've not taken into account the £130 phone + accessory cashback from Quidco as I'll not be buying it till next month and that deal expires today.
#22
Lol, 100mb internet with a top-spec android phone? The price is very good if you are after the phone specifically but if you want even an alright contract, this is nothing.
Best bet is to get the contract and jump to giffgaff and give them sim onto some really low usage person.

£275 for this phone would be a great price. you could consider getting a good 30 day sim deal and using that (if this can be unlocked) as you can get plenty of internet that way and more minutes and texts.

This is what i'm doing. I'd rather use giffgaff than O2 and this seems like the cheapest way of getting the phone if quidco tracks.
#25
Ordered, fingers crossed everything goes OK!! Great deal.

For everyone moaning about minutes and 100mb Internet, the whole point of this deal is to get the phone unlocked by 02 then pay off the contract making it cheaper than buying it on pay as you go, simples!
#27
After ordering last week and still not recieving the phone - have place an order for this one too; though getting a referral (probably down to however many credit checks last week becuase of their system) so not sure if QuidCo will track anyway. Oh well will see what comes off and maybe eventually get a phone from o2
#28
I want to get this and use with my t-mobile sim only deal.

Does anyone knowif it be possible to take this out then pay off the contract to O2 in full?

This is an excellent deal but i'm a bit concerned about having a contract that I forget about.

well you could get quidco, it is free after all. But without quidco it is an ok deal, but for me, I wouldn't be able to see the point of not getting quidco and gaining £130

I'm not sure. I'm not up for relying on cashback etc. I got my Desire direct from O2 for £280 as an out-of contract upgrade. Since then, I've been a giff gaffer and never looked back. Not really up for getting another contract, especially for £30 p/m.

I think I'll wait for some good sim free / pay go deals.

yes i would imagine the handset instore is the "prototype" for samsung. its going to lag because samsung will have filled it with crap.get it rooted and then see it come alive. same as all other phones.

No internet = No point
Voted cold as you need significant internet on these phones.
My t-mobile contract gives me 3gb which is enough.
#35
Don't think there is a better phone on the market at the moment. I bought it last time when quidco was paying around 100, but this deal is much better at 130. Hot, hot, hot!

I think you are missing the point here, people buying this phone will use their own sim cards, just the phone on its own costs 450 - 500 if bought sim free, so how is this cold??

Great deal. Great phone, got it with the £90 topcashback a week ago. I put the "3" £10 sim deal (£5.50/month after cashback (12months) in this as the phone was unlocked when it arrived. 300mins 3000 text and 1 gig internet. then gave the O2 sim to the wife for her payg tocco lite which she seems to be happy with atm.

I can't believe some people can't put their grey brain cells to some use and figure out that paying £280 for a £500 phone is an amazing bargain. WHO CARES ABOUT THE INTERNET. This deal is about the phone. Seriously, either get your thinking caps on or don't embarras yourself by posting stupid comments. People have explained the point of the deal use your eyes and read....
#40
i got the o2 sim only deal last year with £100 C.B. o2 paid £25, and after several emails and months later i finally got the other £75. So make sure you check and keep your emails as proof of purchase.
