Apple iPhone 7 Plus Like New in Jet Black 128GB O2.

Grade A so mint condition. Got mine yesterday and warranty with Apple started when I activated it (I checked on the Apple website).

The price is for the Refresh contract, select the 5GB tariff with £109.99 upfront to get it at the cheapest price.

This one is cheaper than the Jet Black 32GB new!

Unlock for phones on contract with O2 is free as well. Free next day delivery.

Receive the phone, make a call, send a text or use some data with the O2 sim provided, request unlock, then call to pay off the device and the day after call to cancel.
You won't be charged for the whole 24 months. You'll pay for the data, texts or calls used up to then only (so a couple of pounds at best).

I recommend to do the cancellation after paying off the device to avoid being charged more in error.

Haha I expect it to go stone cold but if you want an iPhone with plenty of space it's a good deal (and the 7 Plus it's on par with the new iPhone).

I've done the refresh thing a few times and if you don't cancel and pay off the device at the same time it all goes smooth.

Obviously yeah for a phone it's still expensive.

Jet black not the best colour choice scratch and fingerprint magnet

Well I expect most people put it in a case anyway so bit of a moot point. I put mine in a case straightaway.

I have sold my iPhone 7 Plus Matte Black recently that I got on Refresh (perfectly fine condition though) and made a profit and got this one instead (I considered the 8 plus but too expensive for not much improvement and would have had to go for the 32GB)

How’s it on a par with the new one exactly?

New one has minimal improvements lol. Every review website says it and no one recommends upgrading to the 8 plus from the 7 plus. Not for the money they want.

The X is a different phone but you're gonna pay double the money.

No. That's what I paid for a grade C 32GB iPhone 7 Plus Black on refresh...

No way you can get this any cheaper on o2. I tried all tariffs to get the best price.

And for those going on about how this affects your credit score... You don't have a universal credit score in the UK!
Every lender in the UK scores you according to their own criteria.
Your Experian score and the likes are meaningless as they are not lenders and don't even know your income. Just use it as an indication.

If anything paying off the device plan will show up on your credit file as a settled loan and contribute to making you look good as a borrower.

The only issue is you'll have a search on your file which is no big deal unless you have applied for a lot of other stuff at the same time and have a lot of them in a short space of time.

See that’s different. It’s not on a par but people are recommending it’s not worth the cost to upgrade from the previous model because they don’t believe the differences are large enough for the outlay. Doesn’t mean they’re on a par

On par meant simply that the difference isn't noticeable in everyday usage.

Well I've seen a video and they opened several apps at the same time really.
If you're a gamer then you will see an improvement but how many people really game heavily on a phone (by that I mean playing demanding games a lot).
The reason to get the 8 might be the new camera effects, wireless charging and quick charge possibility but it's nothing wowing.

Considering the fact that the difference in price is noticeable, I don't see a compelling reason to go for the 8 at this time.

They also have offer on will let you upgrade on refresh early without paying done mine today saved me 98 pounds

Except the RRP isn’t necessarily the price you pay on the 8 and 8 plus as so many people are doing decent deals on them. I got the 8 plus for £825 sim free brand new from Carphone warehouse unlocked for a 256gb version. I upgraded from a 6 plus for the record

For that price it would’ve been silly of me to get a 7 plus large memory version

Pretty good deal for new/refurb. I recently bought this from Smartfonestore for £515 for grade B. stock comes and goes but it’s flawless.

I see £949 on CW website for the sim free iPhone 8 Plus 256GB.
I'm sure a like new iPhone 7 Plus 256GB would be a good deal cheaper.
Sure they discounted a newly released iPhone heavily? I've never seen big reductions on iPhones in general let alone on a model that's just came out.

Ok glad you know what I paid for my phone more than I do! They were doing it for £925 release week it you got an EE pay as you go sim (30 day contract) then had £80 Quidco cashback (which has gone through) plus a few % cashback from Lloyd’s everyday offer I had when I used my current account card to pay for it. Got it on day of release for that.

Love people that think they know it all...

No need to get offended. I never said you were lying. I imagined it had to do with cashback deals and the likes

Yeah, it wasn't advertised at that price for everyone on the website to buy it at that price... You got cashback and had to get a sim only contract and so on it to make it that price. Quite different and you didn't mention it was after discounts and cashback.
The retailer and Apple don't give you huge discounts on Apple products, a newly released one!
It would be like me posting this deal, claiming you can get the phone for £565.99 from o2 just like that, when that price is only if you go through certain steps.
You conveniently worded the post to make it sound you went and purchased it from CW at that price directly lol so I simply stated that model isn't being sold on CW for anywhere near what you paid. This is a fact.
If you had specified how exactly you got it down to £825 I wouldn't have argued.
Not everyone has a Lloyds bank account either...

Too bad in your post you didn’t mention them until I replied to you :P
You intentionally omitted to say you got that price only after taking out a sim only contract, getting cashback via Quidco (not guaranteed) and cashback through your bank
And no, cashback through a Lloyds bank account is available only to their customers, not to everyone indiscriminately :).

Yeah, Quidco doesn't involve credit checks though and it's not guaranteed.
Are you seriously implying people are gonna bother applying for a bank account to save how much in cashback on this iPhone exactly? I don't see many people doing that just to buy a phone, on top of having to sign up to a contract and cancel it within 30 days...

Yeah I know that it was a 30 day contract only. The length of the contract and that you cancelled it immediately is irrelevant to my point.

The point is that price was achieved through several different steps and you didn't make that clear initially.
You seem to not to get that this is what I'm arguing. No matter what you say that price wasn't available to everyone, just like this price in my deal is available only if you pass a credit check with O2, but I did make it clear there's a contract involved!

I think it's pointless to keep arguing anyway. Have a good day and enjoy your iPhone

Phone has just arrived and it is in perfect condition. There is only a charging cable and sim removal tool. No ibuds or headphone adaptor or charging plug. Anyone know if these should be included.

Requested an unlock code. Phoned and paid off the phone. Phoned next day and cancelled the airtime agreement and have been told I will get charged for the first month as you I am keeping the phone and not returning it. Just to make others aware. Unless you know differently?

Avoid this by taking a PAC and porting out to another network PAYG SIM.

I went on to the O2 forum and apparently it states in the T&C's that the first month of airtime is chargeable as you have to give 30 days notice.
