It's storage. Not ram!! And it may not be enough for your personal needs but plenty for others and doesn't make this a cold deal.

ROM. which I still don't like to use that term.



Not ROM

iPhone SE has 2GB RAM, same as a 6S. This is the memory that it uses to run the active app and OS software. This area gets cleaned out and starts afresh everytime you switch the phone on.

It has 16GB storage memory (sort of similar to the hard disk in a computer, or an SSD), of which a fair chunk is taken by the system leaving about 12GB usable, actually more than enough for me as I've barely used 8GB ever. This is where you store all your apps, music and photos plus much more and holds stuff even when the phone is off.

Don't worry about ROM, not really significant for users.

16GB storage is going to be plenty enough for many people, I really miss the old days of HUKD when everybody used to vote for the deal rather than their own personal preference or requirements. I don't know when that got lost along the way, but it's a shame.

Can anyone explain the full procedure to get this?

Seems a storming deal to me for a current model (apart from storage iPhone

Tempted, but my credit score is getting lower and lower

Does it have a credit effect if you choose the option to pay up front?

I did this O2 refresh deal in April 2017 when they had the iPhone 6 on offer. Once I had cancelled the contract (paid it off) my credit score did drop but went back up after a month or two... not sure if this is the case for anyone else?

How did you get the price to £115.99? Which tariff is it?

With the 500MB tariff it's £29.99 upfront and £18/month of which £3 is for the phone - £101.99 in theory. I've never done a Refresh deal, not sure it's worth the potential grief

£120 perfect but no stock

Same here. Dipped insignificantly for three months. Then back up to full.

There's no such thing as a credit score!!

Don't .......still fighting the evils aka o2, who keep on promising disconnection however not actioning or processing the request. Dreading a final bill would be in the range of hundreds as I do not trust them anymore.

DDR 2 as well

Heat for the price but O2 refresh deals can be hugely stressful

Daily reminder (since these SE deals come up every day) that 16GB is extremely tight nowadays. But probably fine if you just want a "smart dumbphone" and don't want to put more than a couple of apps on it.

Eh? There's no such thing as a universal credit score, you might say. But experian, equifax etc all generate a credit score based on your historical personal data. So to say there is no such thing as a credit score is just plain incorrect!

Its the hard credit search that appears on the credit file, i was wounded when the iphone7 deal was knocking around, as i took broadband out the same month and signed up to a new energy supplier! Woops!

Good deal I have one of these 16gb paid 160 new off eBay locked to voda but they unlocked it for free.quite the bargain phone really surprisingly good battery life also lasts all day no problem even heavy use and location on.got used to screen size after about a month now it feels fine.always been an android user but happy enough with this for money I paid and near 100 is exceptional price not an android phone on the market can match these specs for near 100 I really like this little phone speedy good camera good battery and my xiaomi power bank charges it five times and quite fast to full within an hour nearly and it will be updated for next three year

ordered, hopefully this wont be pain to cancel

Absolute bargain. Currently using one and it's fantastic. Great deal OP. Would be hotter if some people understood how the site works. Just because YOU need more than 16gb doesn't mean everyone does, this is the cheapest deal for this phone.

16GB CPU - Cold!

Thats Read Only Memory - cant be ROM. We will find the answer one day.

I did this with a iPhone 6 and got a final bill of £6.88 and I questioned it and they said I have to pay . Couldn't be bothered to argue I just payed it. Got a iPhone 6 128gb for about £350 back in January 2016 . Still using phone now . Not sure if I would do this refresh hassle again?

Prefer the SE over the 6 & 7 and no doubt the 8.. never been as fan of big screens and the tech in the SE is same

If you are doing this refresh, it is likely you will get different information when you call the call centre, depending on who you talk to, they don't seem to be trained consistently.

If they insist on a 30 day notice payment, just say no and ask for a manager call back. The managers will just do what you want, I think it's less hassle for them. Then make sure the direct debit is cancelled.

We did three in the office here, and each of us got three different stories from the call centre !

We went into an O2 shop a few weeks ago to by a 4G MiFi thing and the staff in the shop actually told us to buy it this way to save money!

16GB in today's world is way below normal. Even if you use WhatsApp or Facebook and a few decent apps they take up loads of space of the 16GB. And in a couple of months time, you wont have any space left. 16GB is far too restrictive for anyone. No wonder, Apple is moving away from these except for those who cant afford any of the above storage models.

Voted COLD. Design is 5 years outdated. Tiny little screen with huge bezels. Much better android phones available at this price point!

It's a surprisingly beautiful phone whose design endures. It also has a great camera for the phone size.

Problem is the 16GB. I wouldn't say cold but I would say pass.

All fine and dandy if you want an Android, but a lot of people prefer iPhones. I also don't think you could get an Android with a camera as good as the SE for less than £120 - it's a really nice camera.

16GB screen resolution, cold!

For those who are not aware they have changed their policy to 30 day. It’s difficult to get cancelled the airtime part of the contract if you are keeping the phone. The quickest way to do it is get a PAYG sim card , topup £10 and move to payg.

But no one other than you and the credit agency see this meaningless number. Its sole purpose is to sell add-ons like 'credit watch' which is all b******s to mugs who panic when this random number drops 30 points one month. Banks, building societies, telecoms etc they don't see this number, and even if they did they'd ignore it as they all have their own criteria to judge you by.

Where can you check your credit score properly?
