Just noticed the 800 x-net mins & 500 texts is better value - 9 months FREE on 12 month contract, although you've to pay £45 / month upfront :)

I'm tempted by this, for anyone that's tried this method before, how much of a hassle is it getting the money back? I know what you have to do to get it back, i'm talking more about how long the process takes after you've sent each claim form and bill.

I havent dealt with OSPS but received a cheq from e2save yesterday (within ~ 45 days of submitting the claim) :)

OSPS has probably the best for cashback as they are owned by the carphone warehouse

i would have to agree with edi that CNM offer a slightly better deal, as they offer new rather than clearance OSPS does.

i do have some bad experience with OSPS in the pass, but i think they have now improved, such as demolishing the needs of cashback vouchers.

i on the other hand have very good experience with CNM.

Looks like this is a price-match deal with rather tough T&C's :-

£201 to £600 claims

Cash backs are claimed in five equal instalments.

Instalment 1: - Send us the claim form and original monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected on, that arrives showing you have been connected for 4 months. i.e. if you were connected on the 1st of January, you need to send in the bill that is dated around the 1st of May. This is 120 days (4 months) after connection. See porting below
Instalment 2: - Send us the claim form and original monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected on, dated 180 days (6 months) after connection.
Instalment 3: - Send us the claim form and original monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected on, dated 240 days (8 months) after connection.
Instalment 4: - Send us the claim form and original monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected on, dated 300 days (10 months) after connection.
Instalment 5: - Send us the claim form and original monthly bill showing your name, address, mobile number and tariff you are connected on, dated 360 days (12 months) after connection.

Just to clarify - these T&C's are for the CNM deal.

OSPS are more laid back - you can send a copy bill so that if the original gets lost in the post you can just send another copy (as opposed to trying to get another original from the network provider). There are also only 4 claims for a 12 month deal plus they usually have an "auto cheque back" which should arrive automatically after a month of being connected. You normally have to chase this, though. The manuall cash back claims work fine (make sure you send via recoreded delivery so that ou know it has got there).

Is it ? ;-)

Follow the link in OP to OSPS site and click the link where it says '9 months Free Rental' to see what I've mentioned above.

This is NOT the usual OSPS deal but a much tougher cashback deal. None of what you've mentioned is applicable to this deal.

I bought from them before - and I am those rebate freak person - but they got me because they kept on changing the terms on the website. It was supposed to be 2 cash back - 6th and 12th. with all the bills have to be attached. The last one they just didnt pay :?

Yeah.. the T&C's for this deal is the same as for CoolNewMobile or PhoneBoxDirect. CNM's deal comes with brand new handset whereas OSPS is refurbished. I'd still prefer OSPS because of their affiliation to Carphone Warehouse :)

Ooops - sneaky bu88ers - just noticed the link to "special" T&C's - similar to the stricter ones used by CNM and others. Lookls like they are trying to wriggle out of paying by hoping more people will make mistakes!!

In fact, just checked - these look like the CNM T&C's - word for word. Someone said that CNM are part of CPW?

Was this some time ago, as I have used them for a couple of years no problems. The claim periods are specified on your original paperwork that cam with the phone, together with details of how to claim. Any changes in T&C's on the web site should only apply to new purchases, as your T&C's are printed out.

I know that OSPS were a bit ropey some yerars ago (before they were taken over by CPW).
#16
CPW seems quite good, so maybe they are better now - I may even get one :)
#17
Just noticed that CNM don't do number ports to Vodaphone or 02?

Also if your OSPS handset goes wrong, you can just take it into a CPW shop.

Still don't like the T&C's for their "Price Match" deals. These now seem to be the only ones that are nearly free.

He he.. CNM is not a part of CPW :) Yes, the t&c's are literally copied from CNM's site.

The OSPS deal is on o2 which in my opinion is far better than Vodafone. You only have to look at the price of any mobile, it's far more expensive on an o2 contract. Has anyone got any experience buying a clearance phone from OSPS?
#20
How is this a free £0.00 deal? The actual cost is 3 x £40.00 (12 month contract/9 months free) - 37.50 quidco

Total cost = £82.50

just thought id let every1 know that using this phone for music on loudspeaker is very poor. my sony ericcson w550i plays music louder and clearer thru the loudpseaker then withw880i.
#22
On another note, if i cancel my current contract now, how long does it usually take to process? Do they just charge you the bill pro rata or wait until the month is up and charge you full price?

Thinking about getting this that's all, but i'm not sure how long it takes to cancel a contract.

You need to give one month(30 days) notice to your service provider in order to cancel the contract. So if you cancel now, they will charge you for another one month. Make sure you are in the end of the contract. If not they is a penalty charges.
#24
Cheers mate. The contract has already been running 12 months so no worries there, i just haven't got around to buying a new one.
