Apple iPhone 5c 32gb Refurbished £216 @ o2 Refresh

141
Found 24th Jan 2015
Was about to buy an iPhone 5c 8gb for £319 and stumbled across this on the o2 website.

Contract is £22 per month; £9 handset, £13 sim.

Because this is an o2 refresh contract, you are able to pay for the handset outright (£216) and the £13 per month sim cost is waived.

Comes locked to o2 but o2 will unlock it for free.

Hope this post can be of use to someone.

Can you explain how to do this as is not clear and does not have those options... Cheers

I've saw this offer before. Buy out your contract and keep the handset as you have paid for it. Nice, heat added.

bah. no white ones

just click "Go to deal"

No that's too easy

Green and yellow still in stock for anyone capable of clicking on go to deal and pressing the coloured tile and the 32GB button.
For anyone else they are all out of stock and Android lovers don't do it, your phone will spontaneously combust.

It's says no longer available

Not working for me says £256 and there is no discount on the £13 contact ... Lol oh well

HOT

Bought a Note 3 last month at the same price (216)

Cancelling the airtime and getting the unlock code all very straight forward

Not locked to O2 is it?

Sorry prob being slow but how you buy it outright and not have to take out the contract?? says £216 upfront then £13 a month...how do you not have to pay the £13 pm?

Once you receive your phone, cancel the airtime contract within 7 days.

how do I do that, just ring them up? sorry not up to speed on these deals thanks for your reply tho

1) sign up for the contract (nothing to pay)
2) When the phones arrives apply for the unlock code (no need to insert the sim)
3) Phone O2 tell them you want to cancel the airtime and pay off the handset £216.00
4) Confirm with online chat everything is in order, keeping a copy of the transcript
5) That's it.

just keep an eye on the payments that o2 take. Sometimes they get a bit confused by early refresh cancellations. They do sort it out when you fort it them.

Warning- these are refurbished phones usually, had one before, after a year battery fails.

Probably why it says 'refurbished' in the OP and on the site.

Would a Lumia 830 not be better?

O2's 'refurbished' handsets are normally phones that have been returned under the 14 day cooling off period. In many cases they've hardly been touched. 
All phones are fully tested and checked before being put back on sale. 
A refurbished phone should be no more likely to go faulty than a brand new one and is treated just the same by o2 if it was to break.

Wow asking me for some credit check bs. I don't even what that is.

iPhone 5 16gb was available on refresh last week for £192 which was good.

I got a 32gb iPhone 5 last year using refresh for £240. Handset like new and came with brand new charger, usb lightning cable and EarPods.

No problems at all cancelling the airtime side of contract and after selling my old iPhone 4 on Gumtree for £190 this wasn't a bad way to upgrade.

oh no

Who in their right mind would want to pay £216 for a second hand phone old enough now to be considered a mid range phone by todays standards for more than the cost of a current mid range phone, other than apple fans?

By far if you can live without the apps, more fluid OS, better screen, better camera, far more up to date phone than this.

I would guess anyone who wants a compact cheap iPhone that runs the latest IOS and which will be supported by at least another 2 major updates. Not everyone wants or needs a top of the range Android or IOS device, and Apple tend to support their "older models" for much longer than other manufacturers.

So if I'm currently on a refresh contract and pay it off early (handset trade in value is higher than remainder of the contract) and sign up to this can I still cancel the airtime and just pay handset fee or I'm locked in full contract in some way because I'm already coming from a refresh contract that I paid off early?

That is just it though, by todays standards £216 for the equivalent of a current mid range phone is far from cheap.

Where is the £216 price mentioned ? I don't see that.

You're correct though missing the point. This is a good price for a (likely new effectively) 5c, comparing this to Android or Windows phone is pointless.

£216 for last years tech hhhmmmm if your and apple fan I guess its a good deal

I guess it's one way to getting a phone, where it's got a 12 warranty, and you have no fear of it being blocked after being purchased from Gumtree or eBay.

A good deal in my opinion however as a telco, I reckon the days of the glory o2 once were has vanished, although o2 seem to be the the only company that offers refresh deals with an easy option to quit.

Why? Are not other midrange phones from other manufacturers in direct competition with Apple, therefore to be compared?

Who in their right mind would want to pay this much for a used midrange phone? Perhaps the same person who is not in their right mind to want to pay £600 for an iPhone 6.

I had a refurb iPhone off O2, not a mark on it, told me these are customer returns & haven't been used or very little use. Saves paying a fortune for a new one
