only saving about £20, not worth the hassle imho!

​where is it for about £308?

Is this locked to O2 after you pay off the airtime?

has been £300 couple of times at Vodafone, I'm sure it will again before too long.

Love it when the Psychics come on. You got an exact date? X)

Yeah! Where's the link?

​i love it when the comedians come in... not.

It's quite simple really, it's £12 less for a used handset that another retailer has sold new in the last few weeks. As phone prices only go in 1 direction after launch its a fair assumption that unless you absolutely have to buy one today, then a better deal won't be too far away.

btw I am very happy already a week with P9 lite. Great little phone.

Think that was just a mistake. Plus if you read that first thread avoiding Vodafone seems good plan.

Erm it's not used. It's £12 less for a new phone than it's been on Vodafone and £97 less than it is there now.

The p9 lite also went up in price when Vodafone actually got stock.

Not a good price, I think

​much different phone.

Where is it better then?

Yeah but you still have to get rid of the airtime contact afterwards. Pay and go it's much higher.

Keep digging, the holes getting bigger.

this or the nexus 6p?

I bought for 300 plus 10 top up an then unlocked for 4quid.

where did you by for 300

Great phone. Got mine from Vodafone for £300. Even cheaper from O2 now- I used DC unlocker to unlock for 4€. Would recommend, over the oneplus3 to avoid the hassle of poor CS from OP

That comment made you feel smart did it?

There was a very solid and stable device.

I assume it doesn't matter if you already have an O2 contract? (that you wish to keep...)

Definitely! Payed for a Galaxy S6 from Vodaphone instore back in May, they didn't have any stock in store, so had to order it. Their warehouse cancelled my order for no reason and I'm still trying to get my money back! Avoid like the plague!

Top comment with 7 "likes" atm and it's totally wrong, got to love hukd. This deal isn't for a used phone.

Sometimes life isn't fair.

Be better if you'd admit you were wrong and help people realise it's a good deal on a new phone.

Apparently the P9 doesn't have gorilla glass?

Apparently the P9 doesn't have gorilla glass?



"One point to keep in mind is that while the P9 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, the P9 Lite features regular glass, so a screen protector of some sort may be a good idea."

I've had the P8 for the last year and it's served me well.

Can the op please edit the post & put "brand new" in the main title as many people mistake 'O2 refresh' to be refurb/secondhand. Thanks.

thecoolguy

this or the nexus 6p?


This. Although the 6P has very similar design by the same engineering department of Huawei.

The Nexus 6P/5X will have faster and more updates, will get up to at least Android O, whereas the P9 will most likely only get up to Android N.
Also due to having the Kirin processor, not supported by cyanogenmod ROM currently
The big plus of the P9 is the SD card slot.

Will this deal work with a cashback site?

Nice. Can the phone be unlocked? Do they give you an unlock code when you cancel or do you need to get one off eBay?

Please can someone clarify how this deal works. Currently in my basket I have the phone for £12 a month and the tariff for £30. Once I buy it and receive the phone I then ring O2 and cancel the tariff but offer to pay the cost of the handset? Is that correct?

Original Poster

Yes, just call up when it comes, request an unlock (if you need it unlocked) and the tell them you want to pay off the total device cost and cancel the airtime. It only took about 15 minutes in total when I did. I think they're used to people doing it by now as they didn't ask any questions.

Not bad but I already have a lumia 950.

thanks OP
This helped clear things up for me:

How much does it cost to end your contract early on O2 Refresh? What do you charge for the leftover Airtime Plan?
With O2 Refresh, there’s no penalty for ending your contract early. All you have to do is pay off the balance of your Phone Plan.

There’s no termination charge for ending your Airtime Plan once you’ve settled your Phone Plan.

Can I buy this on the £12 phone + £18 airtime contract (total £30) and do I need to pay 1 months line rental (airtime)?
Thanks
