Mate went in store in Bristol for one. They told him they could not sell him one because they didn't have enough O2 sim cards. But if he bought a different phone he could have an 02 sim card. I told him to order it online. He said even that involved going through live chat. What a farce lol.
That's strange Sim cards only available for other phones.

Similar story in the Milton Keynes shopping centre store yesterday. Guy said he could sell it me for £49.99 sim free, but couldn't do this deal as he didn't have any PAYG sim cards in stock. Bonkers.......Not sure I believed it really.

Who would be mad enough to pay £49.99 for it sim free?

Got back last night and saw it was online again so ordered one and the £5 topcashback has tracked. Going to put it in car as Satnav / spare phone. There is advice online about disabling many of the google apps to improve phone performance. See my next post below.
Helpful comment online. Will try this later.

"If you start using this phone out of the box with all the bloatware and only 500mb of ram forget it but if you follow these steps this phone can run as well as a mid ranger, 1, allow apps from unknown sources 2, get on Google and download Aptoide basically third party playstore . 3, download Google go app , this will give you access to all the most popular sights but will only consume 6mb of memory. 4 , go to settings and disable every app that the phone allows , Google , YouTube etc because these applications are far to big for this level of phone once you have followed these steps the phone runs relatively smooth but like I say out of the box this phone is as much use as a brick , the bloatware unfortunately makes this phone crash ."
Handy for 02 priorities phone!
Oos
It is out of stock online buy still available in some stores.
Ordered online a couple of days ago and collected it in store today. Had about 10 mins of nonsense about insurance and other paperwork before I could escape the shop. Get it delivered to home if you can.

Does anyone know if you need to activate the SIM card? If I gave this to someone as a gift, would their SIM card start from that day or is it from when the phone is delivered? Cheers
Thank you uzzy90, will look that up.
Ordered one a couple of days ago for delivery, but no dispatch email yet.

I haven't even looked. Cheers, I will get on that asap.
Does this need to be kept topped up every month for O2 priority to keep working ? Or once is enough (for life ) ?
My cashback didn't track...?

Then raise a case with TCB or Quidco.

That's because it's on O2 via CPW (CarPhoneWarehouse), as per the OP's deal stipulation. :-D

And not via O2 directly altogether ...

That's the reason for your kaffle basically?. :-)
