Motorola Moto E PAYG £45 @ Vodafone

695
Found 19th Nov 2014
Moto E on Vodafone, pay as you go.
45£ one off fee (if you choose the 'use existing sim' option).

I am not sure if this phone will be locked, but there are many providers on auction sites that would unlock it for under 2£.

It is a very good phone for the money, the only down side is that there is no autofocus on the camera (but people seem to buy phones like the Desire 510 for twice this price - a phone that has a similar limitation).

IF YOU GET ISSUES ADDING TO CART BE A BIT PERSISTENT AND PATIENT (it took me a couple of attempts of going back and forth as their site was getting stuck on the accessories page).

So all an all a good deal imho.

Found and easy way if the site locks up when you select your freebee sim. Just go to the url in your browser and delete back, to leave "shop.vodafone.co.uk/shop" and press enter.

Now go to your basket (shows empty) and the moto e selected should be there. Proceed to checkout.

I have added a work around to get the phone direct into the VF [crappy] cart system :-)

Update: 2pm 20th Nov - Stock
HUKD member sumitkd has successfully walked into a VF store and purchased one of these as "Sim Free" without having to buy a VF freebie sim and / or enter any numbers ;-)

So if you are near to VF might help those still struggling

Good find!

going to get very hot.

Good find

At £55 last month this was scorching.

Some info in the thread may help others:

Unlock codes can be bought from this seller posted previously by captainbeavus ebay.co.uk/itm…137

Does this unlock ok via those ebay companies? I've had Vodafone phones in the past that were tricky to unlock

when I click on existing sim it just seems to die can't get any further brain damage

Once unlocked would this take a 3 mobile 321 payg sim?

Anyone get through the checkout before voting on here? X)

Yes. We have it unlocked on 321. £1.29 unlock code from ebay

This is definitely available without needing to buy a top up??

good find.. HTC Desire 310 for £59 is also good offer, with Front Camera and Quad Core processor. Don't know how much for unlock. Vodafone seems to say Desire 310 is 4G, but it is not.

looks like HUKD broke the Internet again....

Thanks to you and Gollywood..

choose phone.. hit keep existing sim.. go backspace .. click basket/go to basket at top of page

Success!

Quite good for the price, similar to alcatel mini idol, ofcourse this one has got a little bit better screen resolution and 1gb ram, but camera/video is probably worse and no front camera, and phone is a lot thicker lol

Thanks ok, got a couple after trying numerous times and getting a blank page. What did it for me, was to go to the earlier link for the htc desire and added the htc and selected existing sim. Magically after adding that phone, I was able to see the 2 Moto E's. It might help someone

Nearly purchased this phone from Argos this morning but glad I held out. £45 what a bargain, the new one must be out soon but at this price who cares.

There are rumours of a new model:

gadgets.ndtv.com/mob…849

so perhaps that's why they're selling them off cheap?

Eventually managed to get into my basket and checkout by adding another phone first as kakinyemi suggested

thanks been looking for a decent phone for me daughter but nothing too expensive, shame its not got a front camera but maybe that is a good thing too, poser won't be able to take millions of images of herself.

kakinyemi thanks for the tip

lets hope the orders go through

Managed to order 1, hot

excellent phone for the price, I knew this was going to drop soon, but managed to pay £59 & £55 last week at Argos - no top up was asked of me. Also got on card cashback from TCB, and an extra £5 voucher - so all in all not much dearer than this phone. Be warned, the first person on ebay I tried to get an unlock code from couldn't do it, but the second guy was able in under 2 hours. No idea why that is.

Excellent phone in every way BUT the appallingly restrictive 4gb

Stonking price. Well spotted. Heat!

I'm sure all Vodafone and O2 phones come unlocked by default.

Great phone. Bought myself a month or so ago for £50, well worth the money for anyone wanting a basic android smartphone.

Ideally could do with more ram though as I do get a lot of lag from time to time.

Great price.

Might want to add the camera to that, but still, a ridiculously good price for a good phone!

No flash either.

Ordered.
Thanks op.

All those slagging the phone off please link a better deal for £45

Stating negatives is slagging? Funny.

Thanks, ordered one and heat added. Been waiting for these to come down to £50 - even better. Took a few goes at the check out. Be nice if it comes unlocked.

Why have you gone off on a rage? No one is ' slagging the phone off ', get a grip.
