Nokia 130 reduced from £15 to £7.50 at Asda instore

LocalFound 20th Dec 2017
Spotted a shelf full of these at ASDA Armadale going for £7.50 instead of £15. Good little back up or emergency phone, or those less tech-savvy. Might be store specific, but worth a look.

I did this. I don't carry my smartphone anymore. So nice not having to keep charging and checking multiple communcation apps. If people need to speak to me they call or text

It comes supplied with an Asda mobile SIM card pack, but I’ve put an EE sim in it and it works fine, so I would say it appears to be unlocked. Hope that helps

Hot..Apple started worrying and I am expecting a price cut soon!!
I'll have a look in my nearest store, but I bet all the local drug dealers have bought them to use as 'Burner' phones.

Best thing ever. I took it to a two week holiday last year and charged it twice, once after a week.

That is not actually true. Generally an Asda SIM will work in an EE phone, but not the other way around. That said there are 4 lock types - the phone can be locked down to a specific SIM card if the manufacturer desires (I have never heard of this actually being used). Some phones are locked to a specific network (i.e. EE & an ASDA sim will not work).

NCK & SPK I seem to recall are two of the names (Network Lock & Service Provider Lock) IIRC - you may wish to google it.

I do agree best to check in store.

Virgin have now split from EE for their billing, now just use EE for signal.
Now Virgin have introduced their Upgraded sims, these will NOT work on any EE locked handset. They must be fully unlocked to be able to use them.
I've had two weeks of them talking utter rubbish, then finally admitted this was the case.
Supposedly are unlocking my iphone on them because they understand this is going to be a big problem.
I'm sick to the back teeth of their utter bull that comes out of their operators mouths.
It's going to effect an awful lot of people who are using EE locked phones that would usually be compatable. Be aware that if they offer you a newer sim, you may have the same issues. They don't appear give one ...
Last night they put the phone down 3 times, So rang back with gritted teeth.

It could still be that one 'locked' phone will work, while another will not.

Very frustrating though, like when Asda moved from Voda to EE & told folk your handset may stop accepting our SIM, even if you bought it from us (limited cases; they must have sold a few Voda locked phones)!!! You have the added insult that VM didn't even tell you (maybe didn't know).
Got an old Nokia that i have kept as a back up when i go cycling or people from abroad comes to visit and wants to keep in touch while they visit London, the battery last about 10 days, the signal is always strong not matter what, the ringtone is as loud as a fire engine. Can't beat them
@petersanchez27 Thank you for posting - I managed to get the last two at this very store as its local. Although I think that means the deal is now expired!
