Similar to what was possible with the deal on iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S4 refurbs, you can get this on o2 refresh for 24 x £10.

Pay the phone, cancel the airtime.

Maybe some quidco/topcashback on top of it?

tempted, but battery life is all I care about these days. heat.

Looks half decent and a wafer think 6mm.
Yet the S3 offer at £279 sounds less hassle and more proven.

thats £240 plus the airtime plan of £22 for at least a month.

incorrect, once you pay the phone you can cancel the airtime ... two different contracts

so there is nothing in the contract that states you have to give say for example 30 days notice of cancellation? this is usually standard in contracts from service providers.

Your description is incorrect, you cannot get this phone on the 12pm plan for £240, you have to get it on the £22 pm for the £240 price.

ok see their standard terms and conditions re monthly line rental contracts which still apply to the refresh which state

2. Your Minimum Period – Your Pay Monthly Mobile Agreement has a minimum contract term called a minimum period. After that minimum period, you can end the Agreement by giving us 30 days’ notice. Unless specified otherwise, if you want to end the Agreement during the minimum period then you will have to pay a fee of no more than your monthly charges multiplied by the number of months left in your minimum period. Details of how we calculate the fee are on our Website. Details about the minimum period are in paragraph 8 of the Agreement.

thats a 30 day minimum period which would be also payable on top of the cost of the phone. if you pay £12pm, it will end up costing £308, or if you pay £22pm it will end up costing £262

irrespective, its a v good deal for a decent phone. now does anybody know how to unlock one?

after the iphone 5 refurb deal I assumed most people knew how the O2 refresh works... you pay off the phone, cancel the airtime within the cooling off period and that is it ... so the price is £240 and not £262

they will let you cancel within the cooling off period and keep the phone? seems like madness to me, how can they make any money!

yes, that's what everyone did on the iPhone 5 deal... including myself =)

Huawei are making some really great phones at the moment.

Their pricing structure for the P6 hasn't been great unlike the P2 LTE. But at this price it's the phone to go for!

do you have to pay £240 upfront then when cancelling airtime or is it just £10 a month x24

Will there be a time when you can get your Huawei out and be cool? Or will you always look like a cheap skate. (Posted by a Huawei owner).
Voted hot.

cheap junk, rather have a Samsung

I guess "rather have" means you haven't got. Why stop at samsung - what about Ferrari, Aston Martin, Claudia Shiiffer.....

I missed the previous thread, so could someone explain to me how it works in simple words?

buy phone, cancel contract

Samsung is still junk, just expensive junk.

Huawei are up against it, but the general consensus is that this phone is pretty good for the money.

I am awaiting comment of simplez :-) this phone looks really nice especially how thin it is, but I imagine simplez who has experience with Chinese imports may prefer the ~£140 Iocean X7 with its 1080p screen

Galaxy Note 2 with ZeroLemon = 3 days use with no charge. Really and honestly. Great phone too - much better than the three iPhones I lived with over the last 6 years.

What a horrible new home page O2 has, looks like aimed at people with poor eyesight!

I understand the way this works and people can cancel the airtime contract and then pay off the phone plan but some of O2's figures don't quite add up....

Regarding the phone plan O2 say "Pay more upfront and you'll have lower monthly payments. And you could pay less overall."
If I use the iphone 5 16gb as an example on the £12 per month tariff you have the following options for the phone plan....

£49.99 today then 24 x £20 = total £529.99
£239.99 today then 24 x £15 = total £599.99
£339.99 today then 24 x £10 = total £579.99
£600 today then 24 x £0 = total £600

For anyone planning on either getting a deal like this even if they plan to pay it off after cancelling the Airtime it seems to work out cheaper by choosing the lowest up front payment. I haven't worked this out for every tariff and every phone so this may be a one off but worth doing the calculations before you commit so you get the cheapest one.


Just to make that more relevant to this deal choose the £17 per month tariff to get the payments of 24 x £10 with nothing up front for the Huawei Ascend P6.

Ive got an S4 buddy, stay jealous.

I'm not sure I understand o2's pricing strategy on this. You can pay less over 24 months, or more up front? When is that ever a good offer, other than to cancel the airtime and keep the phone at a decent price? (I assume that is what this deal is for)

Better to buy sim free and avoid the hassle of cancelling the O2 airtime contract:

The S4 is made out of recycled Tesco carrier bags.
