THIS DEAL IS BACK!! :-) It hit 190 last time, before it became expired...

Phones4U have the excellent Samsung Tocco F480 for free on a Vodafone contract with 7 months free line rental on a 12 month contract, saving you £280 over the 12 month period. So, for £200 (after cashback) you get the Samsung Tocco (for free), 12 months line rental (after which you may cancel the contract), and inclusive minutes and texts each month; the amount depending on the tariff that you choose. This works out at just £16.67 per month after cashback - a huge reduction on the £40 per month which these great tariffs are usually priced at. Purchase via QuidCo for £50 in extra cashback, bringing the price down to a mere £150.

**This phone would cost in the region of £280 or more if purchased on pay as you go, so this works out a lot cheaper and you get the minutes/texts too!!**

There's a choice of tariff on this deal. The two tariffs available are Anytime Calls 40 and Anytime Text 40. Anytime Calls 40 has an initial outlay of £40 per month, and offers 700 anytime, any network minutes and 250 text messages per month. Anytime Text 40 has an initial outlay of £40 per month, and offers 600 anytime, any network minutes and 500 text messages per month.

The Samsung F480 Toccos name derives from the Italian word for touch, which is evidently relevant in the handsets new haptic vibrating touch screen that responds to human interaction. The Samsung Toccos design is true class, compact elegance, and high sophistication all classically protected within a pure leather case. The detail in craftsmanship applied to the Tocco is consistent throughout the phones materialistic and technological attributes, and simply holding the phone delivers a reassuring feel of expense. Constructed in a similar form to the fashionable Samsung Armani, the Tocco expresses an aesthetic appeal un-rivalled by its predecessors. The Samsung Tocco delivers a highly detailed 5 mega-pixel camera, with flash and face detection for all variety of photos. Additionally, the Tocco offers a download speed of 7.2 Mbps, which is extremely competitive against the rest of the market. To sum the Samsung Tocco up, this mobile phone is a collaboration of beauty and technology.

This offer works by cashback which you claim from Phones4U at specified intervals. You have a massively generous 60 days to send the claim. You must have paid each bill in its entirety, so please only use this deal if you can afford to pay the bills on time and remember to keep on top of the cashback. Use recorded delivery when sending the claims, or better still - special delivery with consequential loss cover. Phones4U are a large high street firm, and are fairly reliable when it comes to cashback.

**Remember to decline/cancel the insurance that they try to give you as it can be very expensive!!**

See the first comment for my advice on how to succeed with a cashback contract and it'll be plain sailing for you!!

There's also a feedback thread for Phones4U... if you have any feedback about Phones4U (both GOOD and BAD experiences) then please post in there rather than in the thread. That way, the info can be used across all Phones4U threads as it's all in one place.

[size=4]With a whopping £50 cashback when you purchase via QuidCo.com, a great tariff and a cool 60 days to send in your claim, this actually works out cheaper than buying this fantastic phone on pay as you go!!

This deal will end at the end of the month, or when their stock runs out. They do usually run out of stock first...[/size]

Not necessarily true. Vodafone apparantly unlock contract phones for free now. :)

o2 deals tend to be 18 month contracts these days...

Seems like a good deal but i would opt out of getting this phone, in my line of work i use this phone occasionally and the touch screen control on the phone is awful, if you want a touch screen phone i recommend the LG U990 (VIEWTY).
#6
Thanks for your reply! i'm a little confused now, I just rang up Vodaphone customer services and the man said if i unlocked the phone even through them, it would invalidate the warranty,that can't be right can it? I don't know what to do now because i wanted to use my o2 sim in there:?

I think Viewty owners might say the opposite. :?

If you follow my guide then you shouldn't have a problem.

Whats the deal with cashback if you were to add on bolt on's to you plan, does it invalidate the cashback claim as I need unlimited web access which vodafone do for £5 a month (obviously I wouldn'y expect this to be included in cashback)

No, it doesn't invalidate it at all. :)

Also can any one confirm please if vodaphone unlock my phone for me will it invalidate my warranty? Thanks for you help!

All vodafone contract phones are unlocked as standard these days, if you have an existing contract and its locked you fill out an online form and they send you the code with instructions on how to enter it for your phone. So no if vodafone unlock your phone it will not invalidate the warranty :thumbsup:

That's a relief! Thanks for your help fisher42uk,

P4U have confirmed that they have made a mistake, but the Anytime 40 Calls tariff unfortunately won't appear on their website until early tomorrow morning...

Thanks duckmagicuk2, you have been very helpful, only wish i could rep you again!

I'll try to bump this up when the Anytime Calls 40 offer returns in the morning.

I have had this phone from P4U on Vodafone a week and it is indeed unlocked as my O2 sim works in it fine. It is a branded phone though with the Vodafone name & logo just above the buttons and the Samsung name above the screen, and you also get a Vodafone start up screen. The touchscreen works fine for me, but if its your first one then it will take some getting used to and if you like rapid texting it will probably drive you mad. I think the phone has a nice feel about it quality wise. I had read reports about dropped calls though and its happened to me a couple of times, but its too early to say if its a phone fault or network fault (or maybe a combination?) as I'm a bit disappointed with Vodafone signal where I live, and I also cant get 3G at the moment so I will be ringing their technical people to ask why when it looks fine on their coverage map. It works ok a couple of miles down the road though! :roll:

I jumped on the Nokia 6300 12 months free that Phones4U did about 18 months ago and they paid all £480 perfectly.

I've used them since and can recommend them; but, like anything, you have to be able to follow the instructions to the letter otherwise you'll foul up......

The Anytime Calls 40 tariff is now showing correctly.

No (but I don't know of any contract that does allow it).

Hi, i a newbie at buying contracts online and so was wondering if someone can help. I've ordered the anytime 40 calls 12 month deal (thanks to the OP) and everything went through fine. I'm just wondering whether this looks right? My order confirmed that i would get the phone,free itemised billing and the £280 redemption, i'm just wondering what this part means because i haven't a clue what it is?

Totally disagree I'm afraid. I had the Viewty but found the controls horrendous, particularly as you need to use the pen to hit the screen with any degree of accuracy. I sent the phone back and I've now got the Tocco which I find really easy to use. I got the Tocco from P4U on similar 12 month cashback contract to above but with o2.

Hmmm.. Odd, i'll probably find out soon enough (i hope!), thanks anyway:thumbsup:

Damn, I remember the time when Orange had all the best cashback deals, a few months ago I was with them so left and joined Vodafone temporarily so I could re-join Orange with the same number I had.

Now they're all Vodafone deals and I can't port my number as I'm already with them!!

I may be wrong but I think this refers to the abilty to view your MMS (multimedia messages) on the Vodafone website for up to 30 days after it has been sent to you. You have to register with them first but its free.
#29
Can't decide between the two following tarrifs: Anytime Calls 40 and Anytime Text 40. Do you think you can change the tarrif, few months into the contract, as you will still be paying £40? And can you get bolt on for internet access?

thanks
#30
anyone know if this includes free internet access?
#31
just spoke to phones4u - its £5 for a bolt on for internet access.
#32
thank you
#33
Those who ordered the phone: How long did it take for quidco to track? thansks.
#34

We currently only support number porting when transferring to T-mobile, Orange, Three, Virgin and BT Mobile, but not Vodafone or O2.
