Existing O2 Customers: FREE New 32GB 3GS iPhone on £35 per month contract over 18months

After looking for a competitive pay monthly deal since August, O2 (cancellations department) finally offered me a FREE 32GB iPhone 3GS on the £35 per month contract over 18months. A saving of £279 on the handset if I was buying it as a new customer!

Call 202 (free) from an O2 mobile phone to get to O2 customer services.

It might not work for everyone, but its worth a try! Maybe try and get a few free accessories aswell, something I forgot to do in my excitement at finally getting a half decent iPhone deal.

EDIT: This is NOT a refurbished phone

Did a quick search before posting and didn't see anything like it.

No, this is not a refurbished phone. They were offering me a refurbished 8Gb iPhone 3G however, I stated that I was not interested in refurbs.

didnt work for me, they offered me a free 16gb but only for 24 months. said no

Although a good deal, isn't this a one person retention deal?

This will be customer specific, but it is all the same a good deal!

The new 3gs cannot be jailbroken permanently, only a tethered jailbreak atm...

Depending on the build week will depend on what bootrom version it has. So that statement is not entierly true. I have a 3gs and its jailbroken permanently.

If you are running 3.1.2 then it will be tethered!

All tethered jailbroken means is that if you switch your phone off you have to stick it on your computer and 'make it rain' to trun it back on again... i never turn my phone off. So it hasnt really been a problem for me..

you dont need to make it rain when using redsnow

retention deals are not proper deals in my opinion as it depends on the persons mood on the other end.

o2 have recently given me a £5 discount on a £20 simplicity 12 month contract, so £15 per month for 12 months and given me free broadband on their middle package with a free modem, again for 12 months.

In total I get 1600 texts, loads of minutes (is it 400 or something), web bolt-on and free home broadband (upto 8mb) for £180 for the 12 months. They also offered me a mobile broadband modem for £10 which I have sold alongside the modem they provided making £40 back! So £140 for the year. Now thats a steal and enough left over to buy an iPhone on o2 as PAYG and put my simplicity sim in it.

so using redsnow the 3gs can be jailbroken permanantly? ive only tried blackrain.

Of course this isn't a deal. It's a negotiation between two parties. Deals should not have to be negotiated.

Congrats. I'm hoping to do something similar when my iPhone contract finishes, by getting a cheap simplicity deal.

i wonder when an untethered jailbreak will be available...?:?

Its more to do with you to be honest whether or not you get a deal out of retentions. It all goes on how well you 'play' them. At the end of the day, its in retentions interest to keep you. But if you appear to be after one thing immediatley then it can put them off doing anything more for you.

If you guenuinley seem like you want to leave, then you could get the best deal in the world. It also depends on how high your monthly bills have been. They're going to be more inclined to want to 'save' someone who gives them more money.

hmm... well done. i can't upgrade yet till april... but i might head back to orange as isn't their 3g signal better?

This is a dupe thread as already posted last week :roll:

hotukdeals.com/ite…e=8

You can have 3GS's that are untethered... but they are pretty much always the 39th or below(The 4th and 5th digit serial number) Mines 46, so i am tethered unforutnately.. but i rarely turn it off so it isn't a huge problem. Besides, i just assumed all 3GS's come with 3.1.2. If not, they will have the older bootrom so wont be a problem.

Finally someone arrives with proper advice rather than telling people nonsense that they dont know about.

THANK YOU I just got a 32gig 3gs which was returned (was told was returned in 14 day cooling off period) for £35 a month 18 months with 600min 500 text unlimited internet amd wifi - Wicked !! 04.01.10

I've just got off the phone from cancellations and they've basically called all those that got the deal liars. No such deal would be done through o2, either upgrades or retentions so they told me.
I'm not saying one thing or another, just passing on my experience.

I doubt they would call anyone 'liar' on the phone. You obviously didn't get one from them, so not saying one thing or another about your experience..... :whistling:

You do know that the router is their property, they charge you if you don't return it when you move from them elsewhere?

Cheers, Des.

True this deal was customer specific. I am with O2 last 3 years and for past 11 months I am on £15 simplicity plan and they offered me too 32gb IPhone 3GS on £35, 24 month contract

Thats not the case in my experience. At the last flat we had o2 broadband but in my Girlfriends name and when it came to the end of the 12 months they never mentioned returning the modem. Then at our new one it's in my name and they sent out a new modem so we just sold it. Doubt they would come back for modem fees 9 months down the line.

Another thing about retention deals that has a bearing on what they offer you is how profitable you are as a customer. They will look at your history of bills to see if you go over the monthly cost and look to see if you have missed any payments.

I've had that experience with both Vodafone and O2. Got offered a deal by the company and asked if they could call me back so I could consider it. Unfortunately on both occasions, I missed their return calls. Rang back and quoted the deal I had been offered to be told that nobody could have possibly offered me that. Vodafone just stopped short of calling me liar while making no attempt to remedy the situation, while O2 tried their best to find me an alternate deal.

You must have slipped through then net then because the definitely ask for it back, they even send you a pre-paid envelope for you to return it in.
