Iphone SE 16gb Like New at O2 for £168

45
Found 28th May 2017
Looks like the deal from 2 months ago is back.

Iphone SE 16gb all colours in "Like New" condition

£168 was the cheapest I could see selecting most tariffs.

Standard affair of purchasing, then ringing o2 up paying off the device plan and cancelling the contract.

If you don't want to go down the contract route its available on pay as you go for £177

PAYG £177.99

Seems a good deal to me (from an Android user).
Great price for what is probably the best phone of that size
You can do the o2 refresh trick, have a search for previous deals, simplistic way, get the phone, get it unlocked, pay it off cancel the contract and only pay for the phone. Keep a record of emails and ask fir proof of cancellation as sometimes as with any company things go wrong.

On the payg they will unlock it for £15 as soon as you get it.

Ive read you have to wait 12months to unlock the phone on payg? Don't want to purchase it then wait a year to unlock the blooming thing! Anyone unlocked quick on o2? Voted hot great price for the SE we've got two in our house 64gb/16gb battery life great and much sturdier than the 6/6s for teenagers who drop phones frequently oO

Why the downvotes? Its £168!

Maybe its because people think this is an iPhone 5s. For those who think that, this is the iPhone SE, it pretty much an iPhone 6s in an iphone 5's body. The fron facing camera isnt as good as te 6s bit the battery lasts about 25% longer.

Thanks!
I'm a bit confused by the downvotes this got 900 degrees less than 2 months ago.

best phone for the price and being one of O2 like new phones it more than likely is brand new
Wish the 32gb and 64GB were cheaper
ring them first as iPhones tend to lock to the first carrier it takes ,, but with O2 they do unlock them for free
I did this the other day for my son, he loves it.
A few hiccups cancelling airtime but all sorted now.
Easy to get them to unlock device for free.

you have to be lucky with apple deals the android fans vote it down for no reason just depend on who is online at a particular time.

Will it come locked to o2 if I go down the pay route?


it will be locked to O2 but you should be able to use a GiffGaff sim in it.
I took this offer month or so ago.
Take out the contact; when you get the phone request an unlock (takes <48 hours) then cancel the contract. I chose to cutover to PAYG and was then only charged £3 something for the used airtime. Popped in my "3" SIM and that was that.

nice phone

Unlocking is free. Wait 24 hours after you turn on the SIM for the phone IMEI to be registered against your SIM ICCID / phone number in O2's database, then you will be able to use the "Unlock your device" option in the O2 app to request the unlock. The request takes around a day to get actioned and you will receive an email to confirm.

The SE deal seems good but can someone please explain the cancellation policy please? Maybe there is a link to it? I don't understand how I can effectively go for a 24 month contract, instantly cancel it and keep the phone!!!

​with O2 you aren't getting a normal contract.

you make 2 payments a month one for the phone and one for the airtime and just like any contract you can leave early by paying off the remainder but you only have to pay off the device not the airtime with O2 and then your contract has ended ,

it's really good but also open to abuse like the deal I posted here
Heat from me. I got this a couple of months ago when it was £163 for b grade"like new" using refresh. The phone was perfect apart from one tiny dent on the side of the case. Battery was in good condition with only 5 charge cycles. Was very happy with the deal.

I bought a 6 from music magpie and it turned up in a state with a totally knackered battery. So for all the hassle of cancelling the contract, I'd rather go with O2 for used phones as they seem less used and in better condition.
Can anyone who has cancelled the contract early confirm how much you has to pay off to buy the phone, was it £178 the same as the PAYG phone price?

Yes it's £178 to cancel phone plan. Make sure you unlock the phone before cancelling and then also cancel airtime too. Don't be surprised if o2 send a final bill for 24 months airtime. Just ring them and they will fix it. And also cancel direct debit.
Thanks for the advice. I've ordered one so will see how it goes.
Can you do the same trick with the PAYG option?

There's no trick on pay as you go. I mean they won't unlock it for free. £15 I think they charge.
Thanks OP had seen this price before for contract but not payg much prefer the payg option so thank you :-)

Once you receive the phone insert the sim and make a call or text. Then wait at least 12 hours or so. This is to show you are using the sim in the phone so it registers on the network. Then request the phone to be unlocked. This can be done by downloading the o2 app and the request for unlocking can be done through there. Once unlocked then just cancel.
Got the phone from this deal it is in amazing condition can't tell it isn't new, you get an official charge cable and sim tray key but no plug which is fine by me as the cables are the expensive bit. My phone has until September on the apple warranty when you check the serial number on the apple website. Guessing o2 give their own warranty too?

On the o2 app there is pretty much a one button unlock request, I had to wait overnight until my phone details appeared on the app in order to be able to use this. Waiting for the unlock before cancelling. My first 'airtime' bill has already been generated at a strange amount (£16.45) so hope there won't be any problems cancelling / refunding any money paid.

Hi does any USB plug work with the charging cable supplied?

Yes, the cable is the expensive clever bit, plug it in to any usb socket or plug. It is an official apple cable, not a copy that always break and become incompatible over time.

I have now cancelled the airtime contract, paid off the device and have the phone unlocked running on EE with no problems at all. Paid £168 and nothing more. You do have to call 202 to cancel, didn't have to go through any sales pitches but did take 15mins.

Thanks OP

Anyone stepping up from a 5 its a huge upgrade in speed and functionality.

Anyone unsure of the small print - you can do a webchat with o2 and ask any questions you like. This isn't a trick, o2 are well aware that people just want the phone.

Is it just the case of calling up saying you want to pay the device off (they take payment over the phone?) and that you want to cancel the remaining airtime on the contract?

I was thinking about going down the payg to avoid any hassle but I may need to phone unlocked as I am considering leaving tesco mobile (phone would work on it with out the need to be unlocked) to plusnet and from what I have read you have to wait 12 months.

Yes, get the phone, put the supplied sim in, download the o2 app, request unlock using app when it allows you to, once you get confirmation of unlock put your other sim in to confirm. Do it all within 14 days so you are cancelling airtime contract before it really begins. They take £168 payment by card over the phone then transfer you to another department to cancel the airtime. They emailed me to confirm the payment and again to confirm cancellation. I then cancelled the direct debit. Up to you if you want to do that.

Dont know anything about PAYG do a web chat or call and ask. Better if you have cofirmed proof of everything I am saying for yourself rather than relying on a forum.

Taking the device plan registers as a loan on my credit file.

If I pay the phone cost upfront and cancel airtime later on, is this deal possible?
