Not posted a deal for a while so apologies if I've cocked up. Seems like a cracking deal to me. The phone seems to be selling for £350-£400 on its own so £258 over 12mths with calls, texts and dat thrown in makes it a bit of a no-brainer if you were looking at the P8 anyway.

It's on CPW's new iD Mobile service (runs on Three) and, unusually for a contract, is just for 12 months.

Seems like a great deal, I have been looking at this phone at around £310 from one of the Amazon Europe sites. I was then planning on pairing with a Three unlimited data sim.

Although this is only 1gb it works out a good deal cheaper, it's just a shame the plans only offer up to 2gb as I would like at least 4gb! Seems bizzare to pay for this contract on top of Three but I might end up doing that.

I think there's also £10 Quidco that can be had with this.

Would love to try one of these phones out before buying but may pre-order this and if I don't like it return within 14 days.

Will the phone be locked?

Crackers, isn't it? I suppose if you have a partner/trusted friend you could always give the plan to them?

Just hoping it's not a typo! Ordered. Let's see if it will come!

Thank you for making us aware of this deal. Amazingly cheap, I went for the £21.50 deal and I'll call up if I like the network to make it 2gb or higher.

I'm going to jump on this if Three will get their back sides in gear and send my bleeding PAC code across. 30minutes of arguing that this is an upgrade and better deal than what they offer me now and the guy just had none of it.

Edit: Finally managed to process the order through. Now on to finding a case for it.

I have just ordered a black one. I am going to try to contact ID Mobile to discuss possibility of upgrading the contract.

Thanks OP!

If I'm reading it right online, this will be the 64gb model wont it? Everywhere says the white and black are premium colours and offer 64gb rather than the standard 16 of the grey and gold. Hopefully they honour this. I've taken a print screen of the deal anyway for the inevitable argument that will happen at the end of 12months when they turn around and say the deal was 24months if I don't take it.

Taken from iD Mobile website:

"Memory
Internal Memory: 16/64 GB, 3 GB RAM
Expandable memory: microSD, up to 128"

I wouldn't count on it being 64gb... but worst case you can return it within 14 days of receipt free of charge.

Just jumped on this despite the fact I already had two decent handsets! According to website, it's limited to first 500 orders. Hope I get mine....

Jumped in at that price, no idea what I am going to do with the 12 month sim as my family live in an area with poor 3 coverage. oO

Where do you see that? I can't find any mention of it on the site.

Hmmm do I want to give up my sim only from 3 with unlimited data for £9.90 ?...
But I really need a new phone!

10p per Mb (£100 per Gb!) and 40p per minute if you go over allowance. Cracking deal, but be very carful not to go over allowances!

Hmm I just got a Z1 Compact and this seems better?

To be honest I could just look at it as interest free for 12 months and use my old sim

Such a good deal. Thanks OP I've been looking for an affordable replacement for my constantly battery drained HTC one M7 for a good while and this is far and away the best deal I've seen.

Just sell the phone for close to £350 and you have a random 12 month contract if you need it plus £100 in your **** pocket.

It is a no brainer really.

White or black though...

Ah got ya, I went direct through CPW for the same price and no mention of any limits on there.

Chinese brands tend to quote their memory like that. It will have 16GB Memory on the phone but will accept upto 64GB in memory cards. Hope this helps some of you guys

I believe in this case the part where it says "Expandable memory: microSD, up to 128" refers to the size of memory card accepted by the phone.

Will this be unlocked?
For a three sim?

All CPW and Three phones come unlocked.

Considering selling my G3 and cancelling my BT Mobile SIM to go with this! So tempting

thanks, gone for this.

Needed something to replace my galaxy note 1, was going to go for the p7000 but too many unanswered questions and the size of the p8 is a little easier on the pocket.

Was paying £10 / month with giffgaff for a similar allowance, so great price for the phone @ £11.50 for 12 months.

If it comes with 64gb then a huge bonus, but 16gb should be sufficient.

Thanks op

am I missing something? this seems too good to be true...

TCB tracked at £25.

I will be selling my G3 and give the sim to the wife.

Mine too

Think I'm going to upgrade to the £25.50 per month so I can use the sim abroad without any roaming charges

Banned

how do you know how many is left and will the price be the same after the first 500

I don't want to get all your hopes up but I spoke to carphone warehouse and they said it's definitely 64gb. Also not dual sim and also for all those like me who may want to increase data and minutes later down the line it is very expensive. To increase data by 1gb it was something like £4-5 and to increase minutes £4-£8 depending on how many more minutes you want. So I took out the 25.50 one as well and I will cancel the one I don't need.

My bad, roaming is only included on the 24 month tariffs.

Oh yeah and you can't upgrade that's what the lady from ID said. I spoke to both carphone warehouse and ID.
