I know people will vote this cold down to 24 month contract but you can sell the phone now and get around £200 or in a years time for about £100 and buy another and put sim in it.

This deal:
£25 x 24 = £600
Quidco = £-45
Total = £565

free phone and no outlay other than first bill


Simplicity x 24 months = £480
w995 sim free = £350 at play.com (£300 on ebay if you dont want to use a retailer)
Quidco = -£100
Total = £730

Huge initial outlay

Here's the info
Tariff: O2 £25, Bonus 24 months

Inclusive usage:
Inclusive minutes 600 minutes Anytime Any network
Inclusive texts Unlimited texts Anytime Any network

Usage rates (outside of inclusive minutes) - Usage rates Anytime
Anytime any network 12 p each

NOTE: I phoned up o2 as I'm at the end of a contract, mentioned this and also asked for unlimited web bolt on for free and they gave me it. So might be worth phoning o2 direct if at end of a contract and haggling and bargaining to get the web bolt on for free.

Quidco is at £45 but remember you wont get it if contacting o2 direct so the quidco is a benefit for new customers.

Cheaper deal would be appreciated if anyone knows of one.

Also have 14 day cooling off period.

Sorry but it's a £300 handset simfree. this tariff will set you back £600 over the 24 months. Not a good deal

ok what comparable tariff would you find to go with your sim free handset? Also can I have a link to the £300 sim free handset.

If the handset costs you £300 thats the cost of this deal INCLUDING tariff over 12 months and with your way there's still a tariff to put ontop. Hence more expensive!

I'm wanting the best deal.

w995 sim free = £300 (what retailer?)
Quidco = -£100

Its an even better deal if you dont count quidco which is by no means guaranteed

to those voting this cold anyone got a better deal?!

paying 600 quid for 24 month contract is a bit over the top to be honest just my opinion, i would never enter into a 24 month contract

ive just done 18month contract for 600mins & unlimited tx at 34.25 a month on O2 as with O2 you get free bolt-ons as well as priority gig tickets the tickets for me is worth it especially for huge bands where general sale sometimes gets you no where!

But anyone with an iPhone will be paying at least £35 per month on a 24 month contract = £840 (plus the £90 or £175 for the phone) or £30 per month on an 18 month contract = £540 (plus the £185 or £275 for the phone). Which would be at least £930 (24 months) or £725 (18 months).

This deal is for a phone (ok it's not a smartphone, but still one of the better ones out there at the moment) and contract for £600.

Even keeping the phone I have at the moment (Sony Ericsson K850i) and continuing to pay £25 per month I would be paying £300 for the year or £600 for the 2 years. This deal is the same but you get a shinny new phone thrown in.

How is it not good?
#10
it's alright saying pay £300 for sim free phone but personally £34.25 a month is easier on my wallet than £300! and if your already paying monthly it doesn't dent your budget as if your like me its already accounted for.

Just my opinion!

Its a genuine retailer - they just use ebay as there selling platform - presumably to save on costs - you dont get 300,000+ unless you are a genuine retailer

BUT its through ebay and you HAVE to deal with Paypal. Hence not a genuine 'retailer', its an ebay powerseller, end of story. I'm sure the rules state that ebay cannot be quoted as a cheaper alternative to a deal.

HUKD doesn't allow posting for these sellers either so i don't think its fair to compare this deal to it:x

If it was an 18 month contract I'd order it right now.


18 months is £35.24ish a month i've just ordered through upgrade:thumbsup:

Tyhat's more expensive though, you pay £180 extra, £10 more * 18 months, when it's only £150 to do the extra 6 months. So you pay £30 more and loose 6 months.... I wonder if I can use O2 open? Also I know people hate the C905, but it's essentially the same and has GPS aswell correct?

Also it's £34.24 direct from Sony Ericsson on O2, 600 mins, unlimited texts, free phone, 18 month contract and FREE Sony XDRS55 DAB Digital Radio.


YEAH oops £34.25 a month mine is be good if you can find one which includes the clip on speakers to http://www.phones4u.co.uk/Reviews/Sony_Ericsson_W995/

I totally agree - your not allowed to post ebay deals BUT that is not what I was doing - you simply asked the question which retailer and I told you - I have not posted any "alternative deal" I think you will find that was done by someone else in post #4 - I was just answering your question.


It is not "just an ebay power seller" it is a registered company that just use ebay to sell there items. You dont need to use paypal you can pay direct over the phone.

your not allowed to say 'an item is cheaper on ebay than play.com' which is basically what you have said. I would imagine and hope a company with over 300,000 or whatever sales is a registered company for tax reasons but it is still ebay and ebay rules and policies, hence its not a proper independant website. I see what your saying, maybe a mod can clarify?

There is no point in saying well the phones £300 on ebay, if you cant back it up with a tariff with mins and texts similar to this that works out cheaper than this over 24 months.
#26
for the light user phones4u are doing it for £20 a month.

200mins & 200 texts,24 months.

Far too many better deals to list but check here for some examples
http://www.mobiles.co.uk/o2-silver-sony-ericsson-w995.html

this is a good site for mobile deal comparisons [url]www.mobdeal.com[/url]

basically though aim to spend no more than 25% more than the value of the handset over the contract period. Might sound difficult but it's easy to do if you haggle, especially in the high street networks own stores.

I've never had a contract longer than 12mths and always get a mid to high end handset thrown in.

Vodafone in particular will let you upgrade early after only 9.5mths.

Currently getting 300mins, 1000txts & 500mb data for 25pm.Factor in 2x £300-£400 handsets in an 18mth period with the early upgrade and you can see how much better value it is :thumbsup:


Also worth threatning to cancel. the O2 retentions team will always give you a better deal than the normal sales staff you get when you call to upgrade
#28
Top post and I agree, your link (http://www.mobiles.co.uk/o2-silver-s...sson-w995.html) shows that this is a top deal for this phone.

If you read my first post you'll see o2 threw in a bolt on for free, they are getting cocky though is their retentions, had to phone up 3 times to get that.
#29
has anyone gone for this deal, and suffered ftom any cock-ups?
