Just looked in the O2 store at Liverpool St Station and the Samsung Galaxy S II (2) is listed as £399. Seems a great price for a dual core handset.

Cant see the price on the O2 Website so most likely is in-store only.

Great price, as usual the early voters tend to vote cold so they have more time to get hold of the deal before it gets too popular and expires.

Standard O2 deal, it's been posted on here a few times.

Wonder how easy it is to unlock.... if it's anything like the original galaxy s then ill be running to an O2 store!

I can understand the enthusiasm for this phone. I'm going to sell my iPhone and get one of these. Looks like the performance is astounding from the reviews I've seen, and then I won't be locked into that crappy Safari browser and Apple's crusade against flash

People have said 02 will unlock it for free straight away if you phone them up.. but not sure how correct this is..

OR

Apparently theres some sort of form on the website you can fill out

This is only for contract phones. O2 charge £15 I believe to unlock a PAYG phone.

Went into my local O2 store and they told me they have pulled this offer on PAYG until further notice.

I bought this recently on PAYG from O2. Same deal. Really disappointed because of these reasons:

1. Battery drain is very very high (10% an hr with push email on and no calls or any other usage). Worse than my HTC Desire. Some forums indicate that this is possibly due to a bug in Gingerbread. Even if Google releases a patch, it will take ages to trickle down to Samsung->o2->to your phone.
2. It takes 4hrs to recharge from 0 to 100% while the phone is switched off. You can't keep carrying a charger everywhere you go like a life support system!
3. It hardly charges while you're using the phone to play games etc. while charging. Gets very hot too.
4. There is no native SIP calling (VoIP) as its available in Gingerbread. Don't know why Samsung chose to exclude this.
5. Annoying thing with work emails if your company imposes a password policy, everytime screen switches off or you press power button, to use the phone you will have to enter the password. Its really inconvenient! Its possible to put a delay on other phones or custom firmwares but no way for this phone.
6. While on a voice call, person on other side of the line struggle to hear unless I shout. Something's wrong with the microphone or some sor of noise cancelling feature not working.
7. If you come from HTC Desire, you will struggle as there is no search button. You will get used to it eventually but it would have made a huge difference.
8. Although its has a fast processor, BBC iPlayer is jerky.
9. Touchwiz is nowhere near HTC's Sense. There is a lot of choice out there but for those who do not want to tinker their phones, Samsung should've done better.
10. Some games don't work! For ex: Need For Speed that I purchaed on the market says its an incompatible phone. Maybe because its new.
11. My unit came locked to O2. Some people were lucky to get unlocked units.

Positives:
1. Phone is fast
2. Super OLED is better than other OLED screens - not as good as iPhone 4's or bright enough under sunlight.
3. Swype is included which works.
4. Camera is decent.
5. Onboard memory is a welcome relief as you no longer have to deal with memory issues while installing apps.
6. Speaker is decent to play music through loud speaker.

All in all, I'm extremely disappointed with this phone. I'm going to return this and go back to my good old HTC Desire. No point in having a fast phone which needs to be on life support system all the time.

Hope this helps!

really useful. appreciate your comments thanks. Sounds like v1 of the dual core system, probably needs some softwrae updates and/or v2 hardware to iron out the glitches

1. Battery drain is very very high (10% an hr with push email on and no calls or any other usage). Worse than my HTC Desire. Some forums indicate that this is possibly due to a bug in Gingerbread. Even if Google releases a patch, it will take ages to trickle down to Samsung->o2->to your phone. Turn down the brightness on your screen. I don't have the same problem with my galaxy s 2
2. It takes 4hrs to recharge from 0 to 100% while the phone is switched off. You can't keep carrying a charger everywhere you go like a life support system! Again it has not taken me 4 hours to charge my phone however I always use a plug whenever possible
3. It hardly charges while you're using the phone to play games etc. while charging. Gets very hot too. Yes it gets hot
4. There is no native SIP calling (VoIP) as its available in Gingerbread. Don't know why Samsung chose to exclude this. Download Skype it's free
5. Annoying thing with work emails if your company imposes a password policy, everytime screen switches off or you press power button, to use the phone you will have to enter the password. Its really inconvenient! Its possible to put a delay on other phones or custom firmwares but no way for this phone. Got this on my company email with a password system have not encountered the same problem
6. While on a voice call, person on other side of the line struggle to hear unless I shout. Something's wrong with the microphone or some sor of noise cancelling feature not working. Not had this problem either works fine for me
7. If you come from HTC Desire, you will struggle as there is no search button. You will get used to it eventually but it would have made a huge difference. You are correct sir however did you know you can pinch in the application menu to to bring up an overview of your apps
8. Although its has a fast processor, BBC iPlayer is jerky. Again not had this problem either
9. Touchwiz is nowhere near HTC's Sense. There is a lot of choice out there but for those who do not want to tinker their phones, Samsung should've done better. Each to their own, However I don't like HTC sense or Samsung Touchwiz Use Launcher Pro to change it
10. Some games don't work! For ex: Need For Speed that I purchaed on the market says its an incompatible phone. Maybe because its new. Blame EA for that, Runs N64 and PSX games fine
11. My unit came locked to O2. Some people were lucky to get unlocked units. Mine came unlocked, you are just an unlucky b*****d. What do you expect you did buy a PAYG Phone

Sounds like to me you have a faulty unit. I don't know how you can go back to the HTC Desire. Maybe you should use your refund money to pick up the HTC Sensation next week instead.

1. Battery drain is very very high (10% an hr with push email on and no calls or any other usage). Worse than my HTC Desire. Something is definitely wrong there as that is way too high. I would suggest something is not doing its job a hard reset and if still the same new handset required as may be faulty
2. It takes 4hrs to recharge from 0 to 100% while the phone is switched off. way too long as well from flat takes me about 1h 45 mins to be back up and charged fully
3. It hardly charges while you're using the phone to play games etc. while charging. Gets very hot too. yeah it gets hot but what phone doesn't these days especially when using processor intensive tasks like gaming or battery intensive uses like wifi/3g streaming this is normal
4. There is no native SIP calling (VoIP) as its available in Gingerbread. Don't know why Samsung chose to exclude this. yes strange but with so many voip clients out there i guess they just thought you would like to choose your own. its android and very customisable
5. Annoying thing with work emails if your company imposes a password policy, everytime screen switches off or you press power button, to use the phone you will have to enter the password. Its really inconvenient! Its possible to put a delay on other phones or custom firmwares but no way for this phone. unfortunately i have no experience with this but if i find out anything i will update this
6. While on a voice call, person on other side of the line struggle to hear unless I shout. Something's wrong with the microphone or some sor of noise cancelling feature not working.while on a call press the menu button and select/cancel noise cancellation it may be you have a faulty mic though but you can test this and see if it makes a difference. Also the second mic used for said cancellation is on the top next to the headphone jack so if you cover that it could cause noise where the phone tries to cancel it out.
7. If you come from HTC Desire, you will struggle as there is no search button. You will get used to it eventually but it would have made a huge difference. press and hold the capacitive menu key next to the home button and it will bring up the search panel
8. Although its has a fast processor, BBC iPlayer is jerky.tbh bbc has not done enough work on their iplayer app and its woefull on android just use the default browser and go to iplayer homepage make sure you install the flash update and then in the browser go to settings enable plug ins and set to always or on demand to enable flash player
9. Touchwiz is nowhere near HTC's Sense. There is a lot of choice out there but for those who do not want to tinker their phones, Samsung should've done better. very subjective is touch wiz and i agree htc probably have more visual nicities with sense but no htc phone is as fast or lag free as the galaxy s II period
10. Some games don't work! For ex: Need For Speed that I purchaed on the market says its an incompatible phone. Maybe because its new. absolutely the games have not been signed off to work on the phone/software yet. A quick email to EA should get them to tick the box and get it up and running
11. My unit came locked to O2. Some people were lucky to get unlocked units.

Positives:
1. Phone is fast
2. Super OLED is better than other OLED screens - not as good as iPhone 4's or bright enough under sunlight.
3. Swype is included which works.
4. Camera is decent.
5. Onboard memory is a welcome relief as you no longer have to deal with memory issues while installing apps.

This is a good price if you don't want or can't have a contract. Personally I think the 12 month contract SII deals are a much better deal, but this isn't bad. :)

What you mentioned about battery drain, I have heard that this is due to a program that runs in background that is not needed. "Car.." something look on T3 website for details in one of their video reviews, you have to force quit everytime you power the phone on. I have heard that this is also happening with the Optimus x2 and will likely be resolved with an update fairly soon!

Yeah, great package, but for a completely different phone (???)

OP, I have played with the phone in the Liverpool Street store but they didn't have any in stock. Were there any in stock when you went there?
