Good price. It has been lower from fonehouse I got one as a gift from John Lewis price matched to £139 at fonehouse and with there 2 year guarantee.
Yes, and there’s even an option to get auto cashback (no claims required), which they’ll pay in the form of a cheque
Are you confirmed to receive the cashback
Yes, this is deffo only for roaming calls, text and data included in the bundle for 48 countries not 77
Interesting, I was wondering the exact same. Has anybody been able to verify this for sure?
I don't think so. This as my first time doing of these deals. It looks like fonehouse sells you the plan and then basically hands you over to vodafone who deal with everything, except for the manual rebates you have to do with fonehouse. So you ask for PAC with current carrier, give code etc. to vodafone and it all switches over. It updated in my account to my transferred number quickly.
I had 200gb for £20 from Virgin. Cancelled that to get this. The cashback better come through.
I pay £20 for a 100gb
Not just in one area, it’s all over, I travel from London to Brighton and happens wherever I am
You can indeed.
Left EE due to signal quality issues. Was only getting 2 bars, and EE was least bothered. Dumped my max plan, switched to vodafone, for cheaper price and 5 times more data. No issues with data speed and EU roaming. There is no point in loyalty, as even ofcom are telling us.
Get a free PAYG sim from Three on their website and use their online form to port your number to them and then call 333 to request your PAC code when the transfer is complete.
Have cancelled my old EE contract today. Just to check I need to port to another company and then back to EE to keep my number? Is Asda the cheapest / easiest one to go for? Many thanks in advance
The contract starts when they dispatch the sim.
I need to give 30 days notice to cancel with EE before I can move to this & of course port my number. Does anyone know if the new contract starts as soon as the sim is sent or can I delay activating it after it's received to reduce the overlap?
It's back! Vodafone 100gb for £14, from mobiles.co.uk. @DoStuffAndStuff
why these deals from fonehouse got cold? each deal is cold what's wrong with them?
Auto cash back? Yay by redemption ? Boooi
Don't know why this is so cold. £11 a month for 25gb is great. I've not used Fonehouse before, but I had a similar deal with MPD and they always paid out.
Asking over the phone never hurts as that is was I did and he threw it in for me for no extra price but then again I have been a vodaphone customer my whole life so I think I deserve a lil something ;)
Is this the red vodafone sim?
Wouldn't touch them with a bargepole after my recent split port and non-existent CS from them
For £2 more (before cashback as it can't be guaranteed) you can have unlimited data on 3 with data usable while roaming in over 70 countries https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/unlimited-calls-text-and-data-all-data-can-be-used-as-a-hotspot-on-3-advanced-plan-includes-goroam-gobinge-20-pm-480-3238440
Vodafone are very funny when trying to take out a new contract with them, if you get declined you have to wait a couple of months.
Thank you, I have similar situation.
I had a similar experience with Vodafone last year, my contract had ended and I moved my number to Giffgaff. I then tried to order a new Vodafone SIM only deal and got declined, no reason was given but was told to wait 2 months before trying to order again.
Ha anyone used the fonehouse? Some bad reviews online, but they have some good deals.
When Android Q comes along they will lose access to the play store if updated to it. Not denying it's a great phone, just should be way cheaper than that year old price.
Apparently it doesn't apply to already released huawei phones, only to future ones. And p20pro is still a great phone.
Just as bad a deal, if not worse. That was on offer one year ago at the same price and even worse now with the recent Huawei news
Or you can get huawei p20pro with 20gb, unlimited text and mins for £31, also with EE.
I picked one up from fonehouse. Very fast next day delivery and great price, thumbs up
Was on offer, it was classed as used but as new apparently the box was damaged at most but not even that when I got it, all sealed as new.
How did you mange to get it so cheap?
I paid £369 from Amazon warehouse for the 8gb ram 6t and I can tell you it's a fantastic phone.
So then, why is this being voted cold? Bad deal? Can be found cheaper else where? Salty iPhone owners?
£440 for a Snapdragon 710 is horrible. Very overpriced. ColorOS is also garbage
Never played with one, but at Christmas these were competing with the Huawei P & Mate 20 Pro models in all the shopping malls in southern China, with asking prices around £650-700. Personally, I think they look great, but after sales support is what I prefer, and I dont know how good they are at pushing updates.
They need to get rid of ColorOS for put on Oxygen OS and drop price to stand a chance
Flagship with a snapdragon 710?
Love oppo, but they need to drop their UK prices. Voted hot just because you were brave to post it and as I said, I love oppo (y)
Thats exactly the type of deal ive been waiting for the last 3 months... The deal is there again, but with 1 vital difference - £150 upfront! That was the typo they missed and why they cancelled. :*(
Ahh right yes thanks. Always reluctant but not sure if that’s just because I’m cautious with these types of things
Scroll through they have 50Gb of data for £32.50 but have to do the cash back at £43. Just send them an email every 6,9,12,18 months
Important, as you only get a micro SD slot if it is, according to gsmarena.
What’s that? I asked if they could do anything on the price of the next best deal and they said basically no.
What about the Vodafone deal on there for zero upfront and £40 p/m after cashback. £960 for 2 years seems cheap.
How many S10+ deals are cheaper than this?
I was quote hopeful about doing the same until the 20% employer discount!
dont know much about the watch but for the phone £0 upfront with £39 pm with that much data is a cracker. congrats
I managed to get an S10+ through EE directly, 24 month deal, after much haggling and discounts got it for 0 up front, 60gb data and unlimited calls & texts, £39 per month. was this a good deal? works out at £940 and it was cheaper with 60gb of data than it was with 20gb. (I got them to match the Uswitch offer at £49pm for this deal and then got an additional 20% employer discount per month) Also picked up the Galaxy Smart watch with it for a discounted price of £13 per month. Just hope I didnt get robbed!
Yes, definitely. Honor is a division of Huawei and runs Huawei's software
Wow times flies!
Release date was April 2018?
Never buy a phone you can't pronounce. Like warwhey and zhowmee. I'll stick with Bush and Alba. Phonetically easy
Think the release date is a year out?
It’s £36 a month, but no £99 upfront charge. So if you work it out overall comes to £2.87 a month more or similar (spreading the £99 over the 24 month term)
Good deal voted hot. Yesterday I got a retention deal. P30 Pro, 60GB, £44 a month with £350 upfront waived so £0.
Can’t see the deal note 9 no upfront cost n only £3more for 30gb.found only for £36 Same here can only see £36
Can't see the deal note 9 no upfront cost n only £3more for 30gb.found only for £36
That is actually really good news, it is off the list!!!
Not on the note 8, terrible battery
Had a note 4a few years back and only thing I didn't like was the battery. Has it been improved on this?
Damn it, another option to add to the list!!!
Shame it's not the gold one as I prefer that colour. Not sure why samsung decided not to do the note 9 in gold
That’s a good price for this phone on Contract... But now there are phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10e and Xiaomi Mi9 for a lot less money than this, with similar specs and performance, they make this phone less desirable. Sure the camera will be better on the P30 Pro, but the cameras are very respectable on these other phones too.
Unfortunately you can not get a direct link, you will have to change the parameters
They were terrible for me and a few others, made a mistake on price for the P30 Pro pre-order and tried to get an additional £200 out of everyone the night before the order. I refused so lost out on the free preorder Sonos speaker as it was too late to order elsewhere, plus they credit checked me anyway. They then refused to escalate my complaint and basically stated that as they didn’t belong to any ombudsman there wasn’t anything I could do. I’d avoid personally.
Anyone used fonehouse before and like to share their experience? I'm keen to purchase through them but slightly weary!!
@tafida01 how did you manage to find that deal? Link takes you to a generic page and cannot see that deal (on mobile) so far 😔 EDIT: Have managed to find the deal, just have to change the default options (embarrassed) and if anyone wants a direct link to P30 Pro deals you can go here
Hi, I bought this from John Lewis who price matched fonehouse thanks to this great deal posted here! (Thanks OP and sorry for the lateness!) Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem with the Nokia 7.1 - even though I've turned Bluetooth off, it seems to turn on randomly on a regular basis? Thanks! :)
Nokia 8.1 has google pay. Which is great. Touch the finger print reader and you’ve paid. when I search the play store there is no option for Android pay only google pay..
Believe so as the app was preinstalled on my 7.1 and it has NFC. Haven't tried it yet though.
I’m thinking of replacing my iphone 6S with a 4GB RAM model of these. Does anybody know if 7.1 supports Android Pay? Is it as slick as Apple Pay?
O GOD I hope not. I just got the Nokia 8.1 from Argos last month no issues yet.
On black Friday this deal was 36 with 80gb data unlimited texts and calls and free phone and cash back lol... I'd hang around until November for an upgrade
Apparently Fonehouse and Metrofone are the same company, I've just realised by looking at the heading automatically created by HUKD, good to know.
This is a better deal with vodafone - https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/phones/cheap-sim-only-contracts/#vodafone40gb 40gb of data for £17.50 a month!
somebody deal with fonehouse before? they pay in time cashback?
Got my SIM!
Bought it. I'm taking a risk. Hopefully it will work out
Can these ee phone SIM deals be used in something like the Huawei mobile wifi router B5325 or their E5530? I'm going to rent a new office and considering not getting fixed line broadband, as 20-30GB a month of usage should suffice. Data only SIM plans appear to be more expensive for the amount of inclusive GB's, compared to the phone plans. Thanks for any advice.
Edit: applied under my wife's name on the 27th and she got accepted on the 28th, order is on its way. Funny thing: she is not working and credit score is lower than mine, with way less of a history of using credit etc. I don't even know who to call to complain to as its obvious I got rejected only because of the first contract
I have had the same issue with Vodafone a few times - no idea what the problem is. I checked Experian too afterwards and no issues.
I applied for this yesterday... And got rejected after the application was sent to the Vodafone credit team. Bought it on Saturday, rejected on Sunday. Is there anything I can do? I assume this is because a few days before I signed up for Vodafone gigafast broadband and was successful with placing the order but the service only kicks in July. I have read somewhere that if you have not paid any bills yet they will not give you a second one. Also, some say it might have been an automated computer check rather than manual. This is consistent with the fact that I got rejected Sunday. Do they even work then? Any advice with what/if I can do something is welcome
There's no charge for data and calls/texts back home in 72 countries as the Roaming Plus plan. It's like Three's Feel at Home but covers countries like Canada which for me is perfect. This SIM also comes with 500min to Europe so when roaming in the EU local numbers are free.
at the time of my comment no one knew they wouldn’t honor it.
Mine is showing 80GB and £37 per month. Phoned fonehouse and they claim it should adjust it self in a few days time... Weird, but okay I guess?
For 12 Month Contracts You will need to claim your cashback in stages throughout the airtime agreement of your contract. For 12 month contracts your cashback is claimable in five instalments. You need to claim in billing months 3, 5, 7, 9 and 12 of your airtime agreement. You must claim within 60 days of your bill date. For example if you are connected on 1st January then your first bill date will be in January. Your third bill date and your first claim will be in March. When you receive your third bill, you will need to upload this and submit your claim, via the account section of the website, within 60 days of the date on the bill.
Could someone confirm which months the cashback needs to be claimed? It wasn't clear on my order email.
Well these clowns have outperformed themselves Cancelled via the cooling off period as they can't sort the SMS issue They initially tried to charge me the whole month (despite turning the SIM off at midnight tonight) After much tooing and froing (and repeating), got put through to a surly CS how simply stated right that's you cancelled (without my PAC code or confirming costs) Asked him to hold his horses, confirm cost and give me PAC code but to delay it until Monday so I can source a SIM, just at that the call ended and my SIM was deactivated
4 days in now and two rounds of "tech support" I'm about done
