good price,looking to get one of these as they seem great, as specially the 4G edition.

I'm hoping that it will go a bit lower in the future, but this is still a good saving seeing as they're quite new.

heat added.

Bit confused - contract length is 24 month so if you're going for 8GB a month tariff thats £35 per month for 24 months.

How does one get this by only paying £360?

O2 refresh is a scheme which allows you to break a contract (no matter what month your in) by paying off the cost of the device which in this case equates to £360 on the 8gb contract as the device plan is £15 of the £35. You dont keep the contract for 24 months, you cancel immediately after receiving the tablet and they dont charge you for the airtime plan (the remaining £20 of the £35)

would this have any o2 branding or software on it?

Are tablets normally Sim-Locked when you buy them on a contract?

i believe so but O2 are inclined to unlock it

i dont believe so. If it does it can be uninstalled like the handset ranges

Maybe I'm reading the terms on the website wrong but it seems like even if you pay off the device you still have to keep the 24 month contract?

The only way to avoid this is to get a new device which means your existing contract is cancelled and you start a new 24 month contract on that device.

If you want just the galaxy tab alone it seems you'll end up having to pay the full amount.

incorrect. I just bought a sony xperia z2 and cancelled the contract after a month by paying off the device plan. last bill came in yesterday. Just checked my account online and states contract ended. You are not obliged to stay with O2. You can do as you please.

thought so.....that's the one I ordered. Had a chat with one of their on-line advisors and they confirmed that you can cancel the airtime contract the very next day, just leaving the £360 outstanding......went through tcb for an extra £36 off.......total cost for the tab is £324......not bad seeing as it's the 4g model.

Just now spoke to O2 sales guy & he advised that airtime plan can't be cancelled & you'll need to pay full term. Also you can't downgrade the airtime plan, only upgrade is possible.

Damn and I just bought the tablet under this package!

Thankfully £20 a month for 8gb of 4G is still a good deal to me but I thought this was all way too good to be true.
#17
they've removed £35 plan now & put £37 which increases device cost to £408

if you factor in the total cost of the package the £32 "top pick" is always the best deal since the total is £768 even if the tablet is more expensive the total is less than the £840 total you pay in all on the £35 plan.

I posted that and it went to -50 degrees :(

Dont think they can do that? well thats not what the refresh terms and conditions say? if you bought it online and they are playing hardball just return it within 7 days.
#20
Speaking to O2 customer services yesterday i was told the exact opposite you can cancel Airtime but must payoff the device plan in full. Nothing on their website cleary states what cancellation policy is for Refresh Tarriff. Although you do have 14 days to cancel your contract if they did insist you have to pay Airtime as well.

I'm happy with what I have but the idea you can just cancel your airtime contract any time you like seems too good to be true.

The tablet is more than a £100 less than the retail price, I can't see how they would just let you buy and own the tablet at that price without them losing on the deal.

I think the idea of refresh is that you can upgrade to another device early by paying off the value off the device rather than pay off the talk tarrif as well.

If you can break your 2 year contract just by buying the device and go sim-only why wouldn't everyone? (unless they give you a really good tarrif)

lol guys trust me. you CAN cancel the airtime when ever you like. The reason there's so much doubt is because O2 obviously dont advertise it. They prefer you look at refresh as an UPGRADE rather than cancellation. The 8.4" tablet just became available too and ive just bought it.

YOU CAN CANCEL.

The reason O2 give a discount compared to pay and go is because they want you to pay the airtime plan too. Which they obviously make money on rather than the device.
#24
I ordered 8.4 only to find out that it's only 3G not 4G
Does anybody else noticed it?
It says on O2 website :(

Is it 3G like mine or 4g?
I read it after I ordered that 10.5 is 4g capable but 8.4 is only 3G
Any thoughts?
#26
I ordered the 10.5 on Thursday after chatting to 2 different o2 advisors on line who clearly told me that I can cancel the airtime the very next day after getting tab and just pay off the device tariff. Told them I didn't want an upgrade, just wanted this tab outright. They said that'sfine. Got a text friday saying the tab is out of stock and the are expecting more on monday.

What do you mean?
Are you trying to say that 8.4 is 4G?
I don't think so as on O2 website when you choose tariff it says 1 next to it and it is explained in the little text at the bottom that This is infact 3G tablet
I think they have imported this model from India as it's available in 3G model in India only as 4g model comes with snapdragon processor on the other hand 3G model has samsung's own octacore processor

Did they tell you the 10.5 is out of stock? I've been told it's out of stock, more POSSIBLY coming in tomorrow for delivery on Tuesday. I ordered on Thursday, hopefully will get it Tuesday.

No body said anything like that but when I was ordering it said on the page that it may take 5 days to get the tablet

Cold.

Purely because Samsung are absolute idiots where their colour schemes are concerned. I'm not female so the white doesn't appeal to me, and the bronze colour is just downright disgusting.

Man, it's the same thing again and again with any O2 Refresh deal.

You CAN cancel your airtime any time and without penalty as long as you pay the device plan off. It's always been like that, and it's the main selling point of the plan.
#35
Fantastic deal, but does anyone else feel that these more advanced tablets should be coming with 32G now. I have 32G Note 2014 and the C drive is half full already.
#36
But the device amount payment is £408 not £360
#37
Just to help people out and clarify a few things. This tablet is 4G! The reason why manufacturers don't add 32GB memory is for cost but it does have an SD card slot. On the confusion of the refresh tariff, you CAN CANCEL! As long as you pay off the device plan you can leave O2. This is the same for phones on the refresh plan. The reason I know all of this is because I work for O2 :)
#38
I have just upgraded with O2 refresh, and they told me I can cancel at any time, O2 will pay off/clear the airtime part of the contract, however I would need to pay the remainder of the handset price, which was £15per month over 24months, so if I cancel after 4 months then I only need to pay £300. With is £15x 20months.
#39
Here is my plan.

Take the O2 offer for this tablet on Refresh 5GB plan with £0 upfron and £32 monthly (£17 device + £15 airtime) cost. I intend to pay off the device amount payable in three months time.

£408 (device amount payable) - 3x£17(device monthly plan) + 3x£15(Airtime monthly plan) - £40(Quidco cashback) = £362 (left to pay for the device) over three months I'd have to put aside £120.67 to cancel the Airtime contract and pay the device off.

Hope I am correct on these calculations. That way I would get the tablet for close to OP's posted £360

With refresh as soon as you pay the remaining balance of your hardware you have no contractual obligation whatsoever. This is 100%.
