I've bought a couple if 5c's off ebay. They say refurbished but brand new in sealed apple boxes. I got 32gb for about £110. Not had any trouble at all.
Have you got a link, the ones I get are wrecks and have been sent back
​I had item number 282053350960 but showing as out of stock now. There were lots on there as refurnished but actually new sealed, usually described as A+ or A+++
Thanks only 16GB at the moment but I will keep looking
how do you search with item no, search yields nothing
wasn't this something like £280 on a refresh deal very recently?
Just got the iPhone 6s 64GB in rose gold delivered today (ordered yesterday evening) - setup and activated aim, ordered unlock, and spoke to customer services who paid off the phone & cancelled theairtime contract - perfect. Phone is also perfect condition. Superb for only £403.99

Guys, I am selling a new/new condition S7 Edge Silver with no logo edition brought from UK. Message me if you are interested in buying it!
Will it be as cheap as £395.99?
Am thinking 450 since its a rare kind in Europe the no logo version from Asia.

I'm okay - thank you though!

I've got pretty much everything set up :)

I agree wholeheartedly and plan to get mine for free from 02.
My comment was in response to the poster saying they had been told it would be 7 days. In that circumstance and having spent this much on a phone, another £12 for a speedy resolution wouldn't bother me at all.
I had a quick look on eBay and any S7 codes are £12+ unless I'm missing something... For people like me who are willing to jump through these kind of hoops to get a bargain phone, a few hours wait to unlock a phone legitimately is preferable to paying £12 for some scrote on eBay to type our IMEI code into a keygen

Re the unlocking - cant u just pay a couple of pounds to unlock via ebay?
You could, but why would you when you can do it for free via the network?
I wouldn't unless they told me 7 days which delayed my airtime cancellation ;)
The sending of the unlock code is automated once you make the request. I cancelled my airtime immediately after requesting the code, and it still arrived the next day.

K1LLER HORNET
Here's how you do it/get the S7 for £395.99
Order the one which is £59.99 upfront and £35.50 monthly.
When the phone arrives pop in the sim and make a phone call to a landline/mobile so the handset registers on O2's network.
Then apply for the handset to be unlocked via your O2 account, their app or via customer service on the phone.
Then phone O2 customer service on 202 and go through to the cancellation department.
Tell them you want to pay off your device and cancel the airtime.
When asked if you'd like to keep the existing phone number say no otherwise they'll give you a pack code and the account will remain active until you use the pac code or call again to fully cancel.
Double check everything is cancelled with the support agent and enjoy your new phone.
Do not cancel the direct debit as this may affect your credit report.
If you get an astronomical bill in the region of £600 a few days/weeks down the line don't worry, just call up O2 again and they'll wipe it.
You may get billed for the first months airtime but any days you have not used the service will be credited back to you on your final bill within 7-10 days of cancellation.
Next to the price plan when you click on More details icon you a window pops up which shows Device cash price £465.99 so I doubt it will be done for £395.99.

It will be £395.99 + a couple of £ for the 2 days the line is active.
Look at other O2 Refresh deals. It works. Just a little 'faffing' that's all.

How do you cancel the airtime please? Why would you want to keep it going?

​O2 "Refresh" contract comes in two part, each are independent. You can cancel either. When I took this contract earlier with LG G5 and they confirmed it. That's why contract is split in two parts, air time and handset.

You can check terms and condition and also Confirm with support before making a purchase. 15 days no fuss return is always there.

jco83
Well regardless, you might want to check a bit more thoroughly as if you choose one of the £59.99 upfront plans the total device cost is £395.99

This. Change the price to reflect accordingly and I'm sure you'll get a lot more heat.

Just called o2 to unlock mine and they said that until the imei of the phone had been used with the sim they could not unlock it. Has anyone else come across this? Thanks
Got mine today, it came unlocked with USB type c and a plain box. I called o2 to pay off phone and as soon a i wanted to cancel contract the person on the call center was not happy. asking you only got the contract only for the phone. made me feel bad then. plus I got charged for a few days contact. Did anyone else had the same experience?
ssjinzo
I think the new honor 8 maybe coming out soon with similar spec could be around 250 in a few days time.


​I'm hoping that'll be the price... I'm thinking closer to £300 this time though, I've noticed Huawei are slowly putting their prices closer and closer to the mainstream brands. :(

Son 2 just got an iPhone 5s in Perfect condition on payg from O2 for £154. Really is in perfect condition and unlocked.
Thats a 3 year old phone for that price - that's well expensive.
Find it cheaper from a reputable seller with 12 months warranty in 'As new' condition. Because of course I didn't check.
Sorry -I meant that's a three year old phone - that's well expensive - ESPECIALLY SEEING AS ITS SECOND HAND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clearly not the brightest are you.
Bright enough not to buy a phone that's technology is 3 years old and second hand to boot. All because it has a popular little logo on it. You make me laugh :D
Clearly not able to read either. I haven't bought it, my son did.
I never mentioned you buying it - I read that it was your son - I'm assuming you brought him up with your values - enough said.
And still waiting for your link to cheaper.
Why don't you link us to ANY deal - given you like to chat and argue for no reason , it's a deal site, not a site for looking for arguments . You've had 2161 comments , been here for over 3 years - but still no deals . What's your agenda ?

I think you are missing the point. They sell for more than that on eBay in worse condition, thus isn't a site to compare products, it's a site about the prices of a product, and if a product is sold at a better price than anywhere else people can vote it 'hot' or 'cold'. It isn't about debating if you like or dislike a product or a company. If you don't like something just click the minus or 'cold' button and carry on with your life. Nobody will ever agree which phone is best, but this shouldn't ever be the place for those discussions.

The fact is the product is still being sold by the manufacturer today, it isn't obsolete, the vast majority of the technology is used in every other phone in the world still. If you go out today to buy a new car there is a very good chance the technology is nearer 5 years old, models are updated less frequently as phones, but we don't refuse to drive them because they are not the 'latest technology'. We don't replace our TV every year, or our microwave, fridge, desktop computer etc every 12 months, it's a crazy obsession that is a little odd. Just because a phone wasn't announced last week doesn't make it old, especially if it's still being sold and still being bought by people who either don't have the money to waste on the latest tech, don't care for the latest tech, or have a life and realise a bargain when they see one - ultimately, it's a phone with features and does its job as well as most others out there.

It's refurbished, as new, that's not the same as some scratched used eBay find. It has a 12 month warranty, you don't get that on a secondhand product, because it isn't secondhand, the only person who thinks it is secondhand is you, and you are wrong. The only thing that points to it being refurbished is the retailer stating it. Usually these products are delivered, found not to be working on arrival, get returned (obviously unused but opened), get taken apart and repaired and then can be sold but as a used item. Many believe they have now been more thoroughly tested and checked than a product fresh off the production line - and they would indeed be correct.

You were challenged to find it cheaper, doing so would have awarded you lots of 'heat' and you would have been doing something positive. Instead, you are just SHOUTING IN CAPITAL LETTERS which never really looks good and using too many exclamation marks - which is usually a sign of immaturity.

I hope that helps clear a few things up for you.


Better than I could have put it. And still not provided a link to a cheaper one.

Theres no alternative to the Z5c in terms of phone size to feature set,

It's called the Z3 ;) It's getting updated all the time, so absolutely no sign of Sony moving away from their phones from where I'm standing and it's a great phone too... Samsung also make great phones so I don't see the issue using one? I bet your TV is Samsung and not Sony, because that's where Sony definitely fails and Samsung excels. :D
MadeInBeats

Well, the today's power and battery update for the Z3 is pretty awesome... 90% battery since this morning with a fair amount of usage.
I don't use the Sony app for cloud storage but I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that it's a sign they are winding down their phone business lol. X)

Must be the Z5c processor then snapdragon 810 I think, I wish Sony were not winding down but after looking at the X series appears to be a step back away from what makes Sony stand apart! I don't want to move to Samsung. Theres no alternative to the Z5c in terms of phone size to feature set, what else are people comparing this to?
Game in Grimsby have a z5c locked to ee for £200. Condition seemed good.
I've only used flagship phones for the past 10 years, and the best has been my Sony Z2, I'm into year 3 and I have never kept a phone past its 2nd year of contract.
I'm hoping they bring out a z7 compact and Sony if you listening here's my list of specs and il buy it ok.make screen 4.8 full HD.make battery 3000.improve stereo speakers so they bit louder sound better.give it latest snapdragon and 4gb ram only to future proof it for two years at least not that I think it's needed now.make it waterproof and shockproof and drop the Sony bloat make it so we can download it if needed.i don't mind it been thick but if possible keep the same rectangle size as z5 compact and il give you 400 quid.i totally believe Sony phones are underrated and it's a shame very few people buy them but least it keeps prices down while they last as Sony make no profit from mobiles so least they determined

T815 which is this tablet has 6.0 in the UK. Tab S2 8 has 6.0 as well but o2 did not made it available via the air so you have to do it manually. I believe same applies to T810, but o2 only sell cellular tablets.
had a hilariously bad phone call with o2 the other week. an hour and a half before they took my money for a cancellation. I was almost in tears. Their hold music is white noise and distortion, and half of their departments phone lines ( I was passed between at least half of them ) are so quiet they're almost inaudible. They even assumed it was my phone and laughed when I told them it was theirs. couldn't make up, tempted to ask for the recording, but I haven't got the mental strength.
dont buy a T810. Male sure you get a T813. Comes with 6.0.

After having £30 taken out of my account and having to call customer service to initiate a refund, I have just received a bill for £596.77. This is an 'early termination' charge covering the period 10 Aug 16 - 06 Aug 18. I am currently on the phone on hold waiting to speak to someone...
Let us know what happens... I'm thinking about doing the S7 deal but just cannot be bothered with the hassle if they start trying to charge termination fees and generally mess me around.

Got through to a very apologetic rep that confirmed that no charge should have been forthcoming and that this will be cancelled but needs to be referred to a manager to action. She also promised an email detailing our conversation which strangely has not shown up. I have been told to expect a call-back confirming resolution within 4 days. Will keep you updated for sure.

"O2's website claims that Pay & Go customers will have to wait for 12 months before they can unlock their iPhone, and that it'll cost them £15, but we spoke to an O2 representative who claims that O2 will now unlock all iPhones for free [ok you tried this, so follow the instructions below].

That representative also said that, if you're not an O2 customer, you can simply put a non-O2 SIM card into your iPhone and then plug it into your computer and open iTunes to unlock the iPhone. We've yet to be able to test this, but we'll update this article as soon as we can confirm. If it does work, it's possible that this will work on your iPhone even if you are an O2 customer, so it could be worth a try before filling in O2's form."

Do let us know how it goes, as it will be helpful to others.

​I see, the situation has become a lot clearer (as you've now revealed all that has been done or not, as the case may be).

So, if the EE sim didn't work, it looks like it's still locked & to O2.

But, as you've cancelled the original O2 sim, you are not on contract any more, but defaulted to O2 PAYG. In this case they are right to offer to do it for £15, as those are their rules for unlocking phones on PAYG.

So, looks like the cheapest way to unlock it now is to follow minhp's advice & do it via eBay (unless you can finder a cheaper way).
Or simply pay £10 to unlock on eBay to avoid all the hassle (make sure which network your iPhone locked to before do that).

Is your phone unlocked now? Maximum time to unlock iPhone on O2 according to their CS representatives is 72 hours. Even if you request unlock before cancelling, it should be fine providing that the first ever SIM you inserted to activate the iPhone is O2 of the phone contract. Or else, your unlock request cannot be completed - I experienced that before.

O2 seems to insert the O2 SIM in and out before they dispatch them now as another the 6 Plus my in-law get last Monday this week already locked to O2.

What was the first SIM you insert in to activate the phone? You would have to call that SIM network to unlock it be it EE, Vodafone etc.

If it's locked to O2 and they suggested you get an O2 payg, sign up to their SIM Only tablet £5/mth 30 days contract. Put it in the phone, wait 24 hours then requesting unlock using that number. Cancel it once done ;-)

The previous model (tab s 8.4) is higher spec and with a better screen than this one. No 4g though.
Seems to be going through fine for me, just at stage of entering card details. I'm not sure I want another two hits on my credit file though after two earlier this week!

I know its only £24 at the end of the day, but the reviews aren't exactly glowing.

Why was this expired? Its still live to buy.


Showing as out of stock for me, home delivery and no stores have it for Click and Collect
futwebapp2114
if the airtime is a 24 month contract, how are you able to just ring up and cancel it over the phone?


The way o2 refresh works is that you can pay off the device and the contract sort of becomes 'null' I think, you may need to google it to be sure

It might just be me, but on the mobile site I only see 'almost perfect' condition listed, which they define as:
Almost Perfect phones are nearly new, so are a little older but still in great shape.
They may have a bit of wear and tear, but we’ll make sure there are no scratches on the screen, no more than five blemishes and no chips bigger than 2mm. We install the latest operating system and you’ll get a 12 month warranty to put your mind at ease.

£16 (device cost) x 24 months plus £79.99 upfront. 500mb data plan.

Can't find that price plan. Cheapest 500mb £79.99 upfront I can see is £30 a month.


Basically when you pick a plan at the bottom it is summed into phone cost and airtime cost £16 is the phone cost and £14 the airtime (ignore the airtime)
If you take the 5gb plan at £41 a month and £50 upfront,
16*24=£384
£384+£50=£434 same price on the 20gb plan

Does anyone have any tips on getting the SIM unlocked quickly on O2? My phone is arriving today and my old one is bricked/not recognizing the SIM. I'd like to get my new one up and running as soon as possible.
I've heard some different advice about unlocking on O2 as below:
(1) Unlock through form here (takes up to 7 days)
(2) Unlock through My O2 Online / O2 App (24 - 48 hours??)
(3) Use a 3 SIM to unlock straight away (I read there could be issues with registering the phone with iTunes on iPhone through this method)
I am a bit wary about using the third method - don't want to get it wrong.
I am leaning towards the quickest way - on My O2 Online. Is there any down side to choosing this method over the online form (method 1) ?
Cheers!
any tips mate. i am about to receive handset and have three sim handy
did this deal last month when it was about. Just log onto your account on o2 online and fill in the unlock form. Mine and the Mrs 6S's were unlocked within 24 hours

Which Sim did u use to activate on itunes


Basically you'll receive a email saying your phones been unlocked, you don't actually need to even connect to iTunes nowadays. You just pop any other network sim into the phone and a pop up will appear saying 'unlock successful' or something along those lines and your sorted

I just paid off the device in full and cancelled airtime. The tab went offline. I also received an email saying my first bill is£17.50. Will they refund that and when should I cancel the direct debit. Someone help please.
Leave the direct debit as is (if you cancel then this might be termed as missed payment and affect your credit score) They will take the payment for the first month but it is no problem as they will refund it, You just need to call them after they have taken the payment, asking them to refund.
Thanks for that.

Can anyone confirm what their typical charging current is via the Ampere app?
Even on decent chargers and cables, mine struggles to get to around 1000mA, when my phone report 1800mA.

I cancelled the day after, I've been charged 17.50 when i've never even used the sim, now they is also an outstanding balance of £205.82... After cancellation and paying of the device. Anyone else having the problem?
Been charged £17.50 for the first month, even though I know from experience that this should be refunded the next month. Surprisingly my new bill states I have an early termination fee of £340. Called them up they said this is a mistake and that they fill fix it, however they won't be refunding £17.50 as that is what you are supposed to pay apparently if you wan't to get out of the airtime. However I am going to chase this up and make sure it is refunded as it was within 14 days cooling off period. Someone messed up this big time for me tbh. Gonna cancel direct debit as well just in case.
The £17.50 was always likely to be charged the bill was issued before we even got them, got similar £300+ bill today too. An email I got on the 13th says that if we end up in credit we need to ask for a refund on o2.co.uk/finalbillbefund . Seems an odd way to do it.

On the o2 account page it shows that most of my £17.50 was refunded before they charged £348.xx in early termination charges.

Yes I know that 17.50 should be refunded the following month on the next bill, however this was the first time I have ever encountered that early termination fee so I cancelled direct debit.

My tablet started to play up quite badly, it was frozen yesterday for about 2 minutes without any valuable reason, I was just doing casual browsing, after it came out of lag the battery started draining enormously. I have charged it to 100% and it's been fine up to when it got down to 50% this morning when I was doing casual browsing and some messenger again, I have also checked how much ram tablet is using because I was experienced some lags beforehand, and it said that 1.6GB are free, but then the funny part started, the tablet froze completely for about 5 minutes, then eventually unlocked itself and shown me that messenger is not responding, then locked itself back up and restarted 10 minutes later to comeback on with 30% battery left?! I am not a Samsung Expert, but I am pretty sure this should not be really happening. (I didn't had any apps running in the background or anything). It worries me that when I will require a high performance out of it, it will be unable to cope, if things like this happens when apps like messenger and chrome are used and not even simultaneously.
Tempted to call o2 and see what they say.
Problem solved?

Not using that one as much so can't comment on issues as I got 9.7 and will sell 8 on.

Out of stock, or me being an idiot?
I've done Refresh a few times and I've NEVER put the SIM in to activate the phone, my unlock has always come through. Am I just lucky or have they recently changed things? In all likelihood the phone will have already been registered on the O2 network by the person who sent it back, so even if you did have to get O2's supermachines to 'see' the phone this will already have been done.
Yea done this and it works, just call O2 as it's free !

i see alot of people are doing this but 02 have you by the horns if you catch my meaning example (get phone on contract and then ring up and cancel,but if you want it unlocked then you have to put in the sim and activate sim in order to get o2 to unlock. once you do you are liable for 1st months charges. if you do not activate sim then you can cancel under the 14 day cooling off period and 02 can not charge you for the sim part under distance selling regs, but you can be sure they will try.) is this how it sort of works?


This is from an online chat yesterday:

LILY: Once you get new phone and SIm from O2.

Just use the SIM with new phone for few hours and then request for unlocking and then pay off device plan and cancel contract.
LILY: You can do that on same day but make sure you use O2 SIM with new phone to get the phone register to O2 network before cancelling contract.
CUSTOMER: ok, so maybe make a couple of calls?
LILY: Yes, you can make the calls and you'll only get charge the number of days your contract is active and not for entire month airtime plan.
CUSTOMER: ok thank you
