Microsoft Lumia 435 (Unlocked + 2,000 Minutes, Unlimited Texts and 4GB Data) £45 at Asda

Found 18th Aug 2015
Not sure if anyone has come across this deal. I was looking to buy a Lumia 435 for my daughter. Around the £40 - £45 mark seems to be the going rate then saw this deal. Basically it's a 30 day package, once it's run out the phone is sold unlocked, so it's any sim after that.

The phones only come in black which is the only downside I can see...

Hope it helps someone out. It's instore, no ID etc needed apparently and a great little phone.

Link to further details doesn't seem to work, but can be found here

Still cheaper than 45 so cold.

I'm confused by the wording in the deal post.
The phone is sold unlocked after 30days? So don't you buy the phone first?

You buy the phone (which is unlocked), your package last 30 days from first being registered, but you can stock any sim you like in it from minute one.

But for a lot less of a package......

In what way is paying more for it at Asda less of a package than CPW?

Very simple, how many minutes, text and days do you get on the initial first month???

Sorry, data, not days

But £5 does not get you 2000/unlimited/4GB anywhere on the open market on pay plans for those who need that volume on pay or contract for 30 days for that matter. It won't suit everyone, but even to get for a tourist/visitor for a month its a great deal with a great phone to boot.


I seen this in ASDA took a pic and forgot to post it the other week, bah humbug lol.

Not worded the best so I'll try and help clarify

You pay £45 for the 435 and it's advertised on Asda Mobile, however all phones on Asda Mobile are unlocked.
If you stick with Asda Mobile, you get a free 30 day bundle (usually costs a £20 top up) giving you unlimited mins, texts and 4gb of data
So deal is better than CPW if you're looking to stick with Asda Mobile for at least a month

I got this for £5 in CPW upgrade... my spare, but battery life exceeded my expectations... with an hour/day use and wifi connected it can run for 3 days. So, normal use should give 1.5 days. Screen is not great for primary use, so you would be better if you provide your child a better display (to care for her eyes) if much into browsing. It is not as bad as the screen of 530 either. Overall great value. You would better buy from CPW at full price which is £5 more. If you buy it in O2, you will be eligible for upgrade deals from CPW after 6 months. Also, you will be able to use the topup to buy Apps from Windows or Android Store using carrier billing.

Couldn't you just stick an O2, EE etc. Sim card in after three initial 30 days to be able to upgrade??

Most but not all. CPW source as cheap as they can, so if the network offers a cheaper phone to them than generic stock they may take that and use that for that network only.

99% of the time CPW phones will be unlocked but you can't say all.

iPhones lock to the first network used, unless bought direct form Apple or GiffGaff.

Not everyone wants to be on Asda (EE) network. Some people want to stick with their own network on their plan so CPW would be the better deal.

It's not like CPW force the £10 top up to be used on that phone either so you could give the topup to someone as a gift or sell it on eBay or Gumtree very easy.

At the end of the day phone tariffs vary for everyone and it's up to the user what they prefer but as far as buying this phone goes the cheapest option is CPW .. NOT ASDA

​ Ok then. Let me put it to you this way. Where can else can you get a Unlocked Lumia 435 with Unltd Mins Texts and 4GB data for £45?
And I also just checked out the website and I can only see that it is up for contract and can't see a PAYG option apart from a Sim Free one which is £69. So I think this then nullified your argument. (_;)

A pretty decent none android smart phone under fifty notes is not a bad deal for those with average expectations on phone use and multi media experience. Heat added

Actually it DOES look like CPW is costing more as it's now £50.....lol

Also, I'm thinking that the Asda sim COULD be used in any unlocked phone (or sold on).....lol

As far as saying some people want to stay on their own network.....I understand that, I'm on Three so wouldn't buy this for myself, but your argument seems invalid as you're not required to STAY with Asda, as I say, I'm with Three so CPW is as useless as Asda to me, but all that data, all those text mesages and all those minutes for £5 LESS than CPW, you'd have to be insane to think that this is a worse deal......so, are you?

What good is 4G data when the 435 is only 3G .

I understand where you are coming from and I'm not criticising you but you can still use 4G data on a 3G phone, in regards to the link you've sent I 100% agree that it is cheaper but this deal is for the Phone and the SIM.

I'm fully aware you can still use a 4g sim with the 435 i own one myself i paid £5 for it from CPW as a Virgin Upgrade but that 4g data will only come through at 3g speeds.

So if you don't want to be on Asda network CPW is a better, cheaper deal.

That 4GB of data will come through 2G, 2.5G (Edge on EE), 3G, 3.5G and 4G data speed protocols as EE support them all.

Yes but the lumia 435 does not support 4G so someone earlier in the thread stating it comes with 4GB of 4G data was pointless because you won't be able to get 4g on the Lumia 435 that was my point.

hatton420

Still cheaper than 45 so cold.


actually its showing as 39.99 plus 10 pounds if your not eligible

Thankyou for posting this. I've needed a phone to replace my 520, a phone I mostly love but is on its last legs, for a while and I don't have a local CPW. £45 for an unlocked 435 is perfect! I didn't realise Asda sold unlocked handsets.

Happy to help, literally just registering mine, the sim that comes in the box is preloaded with the bundle, so stick it in, a text arrives saying it's activated and away you go.

Cheers and enjoy,

Rich

good phone

What would the SIM alone go for? I may buy this as a spare phone but have absolutely no need for the SIM.

If you need this phone, it is available for £5 on Virgin mobile upgrade at Carphone Warehouse. Ask if any of your friends have a virgin sim and maybe you'll get lucky

Cheers, but I don't know a single person who has PAYG and I think I'm going to look for a 640 instead.
