PhoneBoxDirect have the really slim Samsung U100 which is JUST 5.9mm THICK with 12 months free line rental on a 12 month contract (after cashback) on Vodafone. For £0 (after cashback), you get the Samsung U100, 12 months free line rental (after which you can cancel), 500 x-net minutes every month and 250 text messages each month too.

This amazing phone forms part of the Ultra II range, which includes the Samsung U300 flip phone and the Samsung U600 slider. A great contender in the thin phone competition too at just 5.9mm!!

Whats equally impressive about the Samsung U100 is that it packs into such a tiny space! There's a 3 megapixel camera, a 1.9 inch widescreen colour display, a fully featured media player, 70MB of memory and Bluetooth. It even has a TV output socket so you can view your photos and video clips on your big screen TV. Unfortunately there is no room in the U100 for a microSD memory card slot but 70MB should be sufficient, its enough space for a load of photos and a few of your favourite MP3 music tracks.

If you want an easy-to-use mobile that can slip easily into your pocket then you wont go far wrong with the U100.

This offer works by cashback which you claim from PhoneBoxDirect at specified intervals. If you wish you can purchase via QuidCo.com who will give you £30 in extra cashback, meaning a PROFIT of £30 on the whole thing!! Remember to cancel the insurance if you don't want it as it's quite expensive. As usual, send claims recorded/special delivery as soon as you get the bill and you'll be fine. Please not that PhoneBoxDirect charge £2.50 for the initial credit-check, a charge many phone retailers now employ.

This is a brilliant offer as this phone is a pretty new release. Cheapest term elsewhere is about £120.

Remember to check the link in my signature for tips on cashback etc!!

Also, take a look at Edi's thread on Vodafone contracts with Cool New Mobile, it applies here too!!

Do you know if offers like this work if the phone is never used? I.E. I sign up to the contract, put the phone on ebay, get my £30 from Quidco and keep the contract alive paying the £30 a month (or whatever) and claiming it back every 4 months or so? Obviously i would cancel the contract at the end of the 12 months but this would leave me about £200 quid up (based on current ebay prices) for sending in a few bills??!!

Anyone know if this works?

Welcome to HUKD rojabuck :)

I've done this (rather use to) & it works. As long as you dont end the contract early, there is nothing to worry. Remember to submit claims on time & claim cashback.

So, just for confirmation, i could essentially order 100 of these babies, sell them for 120 notes each, and run the contracts for a year and end up with 12 grand in the bank? I can't see anything in there T&C that says "one phone per house hold" or "one contract per person" am i missing something or is this literally a licence to print money?

Oh and cheers for the welcome :)

Well there's a £2.50 credit check, if you think you'd stand up to that and the 100 x monthly payments for the first 4 months then I guess you can?

So that's £14,000 costs for the first 4 months and maybe another £3500 if they delay a little sending out the cheques. You'll need to post each claim individually and send each claim recorded delivery. That's £480 in postal charges for the 4 months alone that you will not get back. Your £12,000 income from the sale of the phones on ebay will be minus charges, plus it will alert the tax man, they are very hot on that these days.

The credit check will find out that you can't really afford £3500 in direct debit payments each month, so I guess that is where it would fail.

Good luck

Rojabuck that is fantastic thinking.

I was looking forward to him doing his, it sounded fun.
#9
lol... right then so when you say networks i am assuming you mean orange/o2/voda etc?
#10
oh and also do you know if there is a best time of the month to start contracts on? i have read in the forums that people can end up trapped in to 13 month contracts if they get the dates wrong... is this always the case?

I think that only tends to happen on o2 with Carphone Warehouse as they charge you for the partmonth upto the 15th of the next month...

No problems here I believe.
#12
duck you have been a massive help :) time to go and max out my allocation on all networks! haha... One last thing, is there any company/shop which is the most reputable? i have looked on the forum and e2save seem pretty good but you being more experienced may know something i don't ;)
#13
This sounds like a very good deal...but what are phoneboxdirect like on cashbacks?
#14
You should all read this from edi who's had good experiences with their sister site. He knows the ins and outs of a successful claim with CoolNewMobile, and it applies here too:

Edi has had good experience with CoolNewMobile several times. They're pretty much the same company and the claims are porcessed in the same place.

They have quite stringent terms and conditions. If you stay on the ball (see the link in my sig for advice on organising your claims) then you will get your cashback.

At the end of the day, they're hoping that people forget to claim or mess it up. You just have to organise it all when you get your phone. It's very possible. :)

P.S. They've been around pretty much as long as I've been a moderator here, which is over 2 years now.
