64
Found 3rd Oct 2013
Tesco are doing a deal on NOKIA 206 dual sim unlocked mobile phone, perfect for main personal number and a number for work.

The phone is sim free so it can take any sim card except 3, because it is not 3G.

saw this today tesco metro kirkintilloch. debated buying hubby one...... but didn't

are you sure its unlocked ?

I don't understand why it won't accept "3" sims? Are you saying the network needs to support 3G? Doesn't "3" support 3G?

What he's saying is a phone needs to be 3G for it to accept a 3 sim

3 is a 3G&4G network only.
This is a 2G phone & is not supported by the 3 network.

Banned

This is not SIM free and certainly it is not DUAL SIM unless stated on Tesco website.
I voted HOT but its Coldddddd

in store its advertised as dual sim.

I don't think this is a dual sim version either. After some googling it seems the 206 has 2 different models. This one that takes one sim and the other is called Nokia 206 Dual Sim (RM-872).

Edit: Amazon UK one's aren't dual sim either. If it's instore then that's great but there's nothing saying it's online.

defo said duel sim in store. I read it too

Apparently, Dual sim phones are not allowed in UK officially. So if Tesco is advertising, either they don't know or this phone is not a dual sim. It can be a dual sim band, but definitely not dual sim.

I have one that's accept 4 Sims, but this is good because its from Tesco and Nokia.

Nokia UK does not list Nokia 206 Dual SIM on their site but only Nokia 206.

Nokia Global lists all handsets, so not all countries will sell Nokia 206 Dual SIM. Confirmed availability here on local product page.

So Tesco has misprinted offer or importing them from other EU country.

Even the Nokia 515 Dual SIM is nice. Again not available in UK as confirmed here.

Tesco Mobile phones are locked to Tesco Network, may work on o2 as they share their network

anybody bought one and looked inside?

According to Ofcom dual SIM phones are perfectly fine to use in the UK and they even recommend them to improve your coverage :

They are allowed it is just the Networks (Who are the main customers of the phone manufacturers) don't like them very much.

There is nothing illegal about them or Expansys wouldn't sell them.

Are they the dual SIM version in the Carphone Warehouse?

Also, who would buy (and that begs the question who would sell) a network locked dual SIM phone. One of the biggest advantages has got to be having two networks?

Great little phone simple to use and stylish.Hot deal and we'll worth a buy.

Can these phones use Whatsapp? I noticed that one of the icons look extremely similar to the Whatsapp logo.

At carphone warehouse hey are 39.99 + 10 pounds top up, how does it make it cheaper?

Something doesn't sound right about this.

Anyone bought one and can confirm it is the dual version and working on O2? - because most Tesco Mobiles don't.

It also doesn't state that its the dual version - so not even the same phone.

Voted hot because it has very useful features that are missing off ridiculously overpriced iPhones...

Voting cold on the basis that :

1. it is NOT unlocked
2. It is almost certainly not dual SIM.

In other deal for this phone from cpw is comment that whatsapp is built in

It's not unlocked.

It's not unlocked.
