So total cost is £199, not £631.99.

Have posted many of these deals, so as usual voted hot for the saving.

And I'm gonna say no more.



P.S I think you need to re word your description, as it is quite confusing if you don't know these deals.
Does the phone still have multitasking issues? I know it had issues with multitasking heavy applications closing them down I don't know if they updated it to fix it.
I saw £631 and voted cold after thinking "Eh ?" 199 is good though

Yeah he's priced it wrong.
How is it you're not legally obliged to fulfill the 12 monthly payments of £36?

Hukd automatically chaged it.
It's really £199 then?
The topcashback of £50 will, in my experience, not be paid after months of "tracking"

Are you thinking about the Nokia 5? That continues to have serious multi-tasking issues despite several "fixes" from HMD.

Same with the 8 as well look here first few minutes vs the one plus. Like I said i don't know if this is fixed or not.

At best there's a clerical error (O2 not talking to CPW) resulting in one not needing to return the phone, but can't imagine they give you the device without first agreeing to some terms that make you liable for the entire cost if you don't return the device.
Another O2 refresh deal ... For people who can pass a credit check for a high end phone. Then cashback might not come. So you've lowered your credit score (every check lowers it by some points) and a phone for £199 and then lowered your chances of more 'credit'. Great.

Do i understand it correctly that it makes sense when you view it as buying a phone and also a sim only contract, as opposed to buying a phone on contract. You have the right to cancel your contact for the service provision within 14 days without cost. The purchase of the phone is unrelated to the contract as it was simply ordered at the same time and in no way contingent on the entirely seperate contract for service provision?

You get to keep the device cos phone and airtime contracts are separate, presumably the phone is paid off at £199. That's how O2 refresh works.

The £199 is CPW upfront, they would receive more money from O2; O2 should be charging anyone who want to exit this contract about £480. Of course, early exit (O2 Refresh) doesn't apply to a cancelled contract, but in that case you would have to return the device (and get your £199 back). There's no doubt this is an error, and that assuming the terms you agree to aren't also incorrect, you would be liable for a very overpriced Nokia 8.

Edit: 12m so £240 on top of £199, not £480.

So, it's basically fraud.

Good luck getting any more 'high end' phone contracts in the future, as they will put a marker on your Experian files

This is not a refresh deal this a sim only deal with a phone. Sim free phone and a sim Contact. Only o2 direct can sell refresh.
I bought about 7 phones over the last 5 years from O2 refresh and I can assure you that you have higher chances of winning the euro millions than getting the £50 cashback after cancelling the contract straight away.

...Conversely I bought a Nokia 6 before Christmas on a one month contract from cpw and the £50 paid before the end of January

If this works then what's stopping you from going for the 2 year for 24/month contract with upfront £49.99 and then cancelling the contract the same day you receive the package?.. If not, then how is this different?..

The 24 month you are referring to is 1 contract, so you can't cancel the airtime deal and keep the phone, the 12 month deals are two separate contracts, one sim only, and one buying a phone outright (sim free)

So, what you're saying is the contract I referred to is subsidised and this one is not, so you're paying outright for the smartphone, right?

Exactly! I have not done this personally, but I've posted a few of these deals based on people telling me, and other deals people have posted saying it works.

I've done the 1 month, and got the cashback (£50) and sold the phone (p10 lite) for a good profit.

Just quote this, there are 44 phones that carphone warehouse sell with deals of this kind.

Cold, they don't have the Nokia 8 Scirocco available for this price...

Anyway, being serious...
I don't see how this deal is legit if you go about cancelling the SIM card.

They are clearly selling the phone to you at £199 because you have agreed to take out a rip-off £36 a month SIM only deal for 12 months and the commission CPW will be getting from O2 allows them to sell the phone to the user at this lower price.

If the contract is cancelled during the cooling off period, CPW are highly unlikely to get paid the commission, and what is to stop them coming after the buyer for the money that have lost out on, on the phone. When on the website it clearly shows the purchase of the phone is linked to buying that particular SIM Card deal.

I'm no lawyer, but isn't there an element of fraud going on here, you are buying a phone and SIM card under false pretences. You're cancelling the SIM card part of the deal, but still intending to keep the phone, when the price of the phone is linked to SIM card deal you've signed up for.

It's a bit like these crazy phone deals, where you use to pay an astronomical amount for a phone contract with a god awful phone, but got a free TV or Xbox with it. If you cancelled the contract, you had to return everything, you couldn't just keep the TV.

Also surely you have to cancel the contract under the 14 day cooling off period with CPW, legally it is the retailer who you should be going to and not O2.

Also I'm sure TopCashBack would take a dim view, of trying to claim cashback on a deal you have no intention of fulfilling. Quidco have numerous warnings on their website about things like this, when clicking through to a retailer and how they will take action if cashback deals are being abused.
