Nah she told me she'd rather 4 than none at all....it's the quality rather than the quantity apparently

Once you have paid off the phone cost, what happens to the 24 months X £35? surely they wont let you cancel that?

It does indeed, note the 'total amount payable for device'

you can cancel airtime as soon as you pay off handset. I've done it. you can go on o2 chat and ask for clarification and save the chat for proof.
Good deal for a superb, underrated device.

I should have stated this in the opening post, but whilst it's incredibly unlikely that it'll get paid out, I've had £90 track from Quidco.

O2 Refresh tariffs work differently to standard mobile contracts. The price is divided in to two parts, the 'handset' cost, and the 'airtime' cost. The 'handset' cost in this instance is £15 and the 'airtime' cost is £35 - totaling to £50 per month.

With O2 Refresh, you're able to cancel your 'airtime' tariff the moment you fully pay off your handset, which in this instance, costs the £19.99 upfront, followed by £24 payments of £15 - hence the overall cost of £379.99

So an overall cost of £1219.99 then?

No.

The moment you receive the phone, you contact O2 and pay off the entire handset cost. They will then charge you £360. You then ask them to cancel your airtime plan, which they will, and unlock the phone, which they will.
Is it possible to do this in store also?
surely a minimum term applies, i.e. you'd have to pay at least one month's contract?

Yes

You can't really compare US and UK phone prices as US users are typically tied to a more expensive contract, rather than buying SIM free.

Also not sure what you mean by shi model (unless a poor attempt at an expletive). Anyway, this is the new SE model (similar spec to the 6S but in the 5S shell).
I just did one this week with iPhone 5s refresh plan. The important thing is once you received the phone, insert the O2 sim card into the phone. Make a call from another phone to this new O2 number to "activate" the sim. Call O2 and pay off the device plan then cancel the airtime straight after that. The longer you wait to cancel the airtime plan, the more you will pay for the pro rata airtime cost between you initially activated the sim and until you cancel the airtime.

I learned the hard way of paying extra few quids of the airtime. I paid off the device plan on Monday and only cancel the airtime plan on Thursday, so end up paying extra £4 something which shouldn't be paying in the first place.
Wow an iPhone SE deal gone hot. Well done OP.

US users can buy SIM Free - they have been able to for a while now. However, the US prices on the website do not include sales tax.

So, if you're comparing like for like, you should really add 20% (i.e. UK VAT) to the US price!
Theres no upfront cost for the £38 / £41.50 / £45 /£50 trarrif so why would you get the most epxensive tarriff?

I'm gonna get one in a few week as I get 50% off my airtime with o2
so
£no upfront
£15 x 24 = £360 +
£13.25 a month for 3GB & unlimited calls / texts

because there are tariffs with better value out there if this phone set is only £379.99
Very good deal, but if you currently have an iPhone you'd probably be better of trading it in at Apple store. Apple offered £100 for my fully functioning and good quality iPhone5.

Does this apply even if you don't use the sim. I won't be able to pay off my device cost for at least a week after a receive my device. So I'm just wondering if I'd have to pay anything extra.

VAT @20%
US prices never include any local state specific sales tax which will bump it up, but varies form state to state

The £38 tariff has a £20 handset cost and £18 airtime cost
The £41.50 tariff has a £20 handset cost and £21.50 airtime cost
The £45 tariff has a £20 handset cost and £25 airtime cost

mr2000

So an overall cost of £1219.99 then?




Oh man you just can't read too many numbers at a time do you? YOU CAN CANCEL THE TARIFF AND ONLY PAY THE PHONE PART!!! WHICH IS £19.99+15*24=£379.99!!!!!!
You can also get the 16GB model for £289.99 if you select the 30GB data plan with £49.99 upfront payment @ £45 per month.

Total payment for phone if you cancel during the first month will be:
£49.99 upfront + £45 for first months bill + 23 x £10 for phone plan = £324.99, which is £34 cheaper than RRP (£124 saving off RRP is quidco pays out, which is unlikely)

Plus if you wait for quidco to payout within 2 months, then you'll save around £94 off the RRP. If quidco pays out after 3 months then you'll still save around £60 RRP.

Because the £50 plan is the only plan where the total device cost is £379.99, considerably less than RRP.
