Windows phone is dead (well, in its death throes), and Lumia phones are becoming hard to find at a decent price, so £39.99 (+£10 top up) for a pretty decent Windows 10 smartphone isn't bad, if this sort of thing floats your boat.

It'll be locked to O2, however.

I think you'll find that the total cost for this phone will be £39.99.
Although you have to choose a tariff during the purchasing process, you won't be charged for it at checkout, and will receive a zero-credit-balance SIM card with delivery, which you can then choose to top up or not as you wish.

Not that I'd ever touch any Windoze product with a bargepole, but thought it fair to point out this is how O2 operate these deals.

Better off getting the new Samsung which has B20 support

B20? Band 20? I think all 4G phones sold by O2 have band 20 support, including the Lumia 550.

Nope you are wrong and misinformed

So you are saying that O2, a network which uses 800mhz Band 20 exclusively for 4G, doesn't actually sell any 4G phones which use band 20?

I think you will find that the majority of 4G capable phones sold in the UK, for the UK market, are fully compatible with all UK 4G LTE bands, including band 20. It's usually only phones that are imported from china which miss band 20 support, or phones which lack 4G connectivity entirely.

I'd like to see some evidence to back up your claim.

PS: The specifications for the UK Lumia 550, taken from the Microsoft GB website, show that band 20 is indeed supported:

LTE FDD network: Band 8 (900MHz), Band 20 (800MHz), Band 1 (2100 MHz), Band 3 (1800 MHz), Band 7 (2600 MHz)

Hard to see his as a deal when I picked up a brand new Lumia 550 for £30 last year on a Carphone Warehouse PAYG upgrade. At one point they were going for £20.

​try and find one at those prices nowadays

Guess there must be allot of barely used windows phones out there..

Same price as 3 months ago from O2 - as some others are saying, these should be at least £10-20 cheaper to be seen as some kind of deal:

I dont need to prove anything. I am objectively right.

The fact that you can't provide evidence proves otherwise.

What are you trying to say? That it doesn't have band 20 coverage? If so, that's clearly wrong. It clearly states band 20 coverage in Microsoft's spec and as a Lumia 550 owner I have never personally encountered, nor heard of anyone else encountering, band 20 issues. Can you clarify what you are talking about?
