Nokia Lumia 635 unlocked £39 @ Tesco instore

LocalFound 9th Nov 2015
Nokia Lumia 635 windows phone. Unlocked.

1gb ram, comes with HERE maps/drive, mix radio etc.

If you just fancy messing around with Windows phone why not pick one of these up for £39.

Tesco in Glasgow Sauchihall street has about 30 of these available in orange and black. The chap thought it was national according to his stock computer. I had to ask if they had black in stock as they were out of the leaflets you take to the counter and they had a bunch in the stock room.

Whilst this is sold as a tesco mobile device. I unwrapped it and put a '3' sim in it which worked first time. I've also tried a Vodafone sim and it works a treat. unlocked goodness.

If you note the receipt, I actually picked this up for £34 as I went shopping for £15 of ready meals and received a £5 coupon. I then re-entered the shop, bought the phone and used the coupon and got this for £35.

It doesn't compare to my iPhone6s but for the curious it's about the cheapest I've found for a Windows phone.

None left at Spring Hill, Birmingham.
The standard 635 only has 512mb so that's a good price for the 1gb model.

I think you meant to say that the standard 630 has only 512MB of RAM.

Heat for the price.

Remember though, this has NO front facing camera.
Are these 4G or 3G?

Looks like it was £89 and then a member of staff changed it to £39

Several times better than a ZX Spectrum +2. Cool.

The box for the phone scans at £89 (same price online), when they scanned the display leaflet which you take to the counter this scans correctly at £39.
Ok. It's late and I'm confused. If you go to Tesco's website, you can get a Lumia 635 SIM free in one of two ways. Select Nokia as the brand, and you get one from Tesco for £89. Or if you look for a Microsoft Lumia 635, it'll take you to one from Cleverboxes for £101. Both illustrations have Nokia as the brand. The OP's is clearly Nokia. So which is it, Microsoft or Nokia?

This is a Nokia Lumia handset with Nokia branding, I believe it was one of the last Nokia branded WinPhones before it changed to Microsoft Lumia but I'm sure one of the WinPhone experts can fill in the history here.

where do you get the display leaflet?

No on the 630. But yes on the 512kb. Been playing with my Amiga and I've got kb on the brain.

The +2 is rubbish. You need a Spectrum 128k 'Toastrack'

Excuse the terminology, it's the ticket you take to the service counter.
I'm thinking of getting the kids one of these each for christmas but have only ever used google play store. Does anyone know if the windows store has a lot of apps or is it very limited. I don't want them to be unable to get all the apps that their friends are talking about.

Have a browse here. Things like Snapchat are missing but not sure whether you really want your kids on Snapchat anyways!
it's the Tesco mobile one which is 39, not the unlocked one. that's 59
Looks good anybody else can verify that the tests mobile one comes unlocked, or indeed anyone else managed to get this besides OP

By jove you are right Holmes! I do believe he meant to say 512MB. Without your intervention people would have believed it only had a 512KB memory.

I've just managed to get a green one at the Hednesford store for £39, can't answer if it's unlocked yet as haven't opened it yet.
Almost tempted but it looking at comparisons the only upside to the 520 would be a little extra ram
Mine is locked, can't use the EE sim I have. Does anyone know if they can be unlocked please?
Hope this helps. It says £10 to unlock from Tesco mobile.

They had these in Exeter, not on display but in a cupboard below. However, they were still scanning at £89 (they don't have tickets to take to the till as it's a dedicated phone section with a member of staff in it all the time).

I phoned my local Tesco hub on 0345 671 9454 to check stock and he told me the following (according to his system):
Unlocked should be £89
Tesco mobile should be £39
Vodafone should be £10

Possibly a wild goose looking for a Vodafone one.
Knowing Microsoft, they will kill off Windows Phone within a couple of years - I bought a printer than ran on the Windows Printing System that ran on Windows 98, when Windows XP came out Windows Printing System was no longer supported...

And that little thing called 4G which makes a world of difference to any phone if you are in a 4G area, basically makes the phone 10 times faster when using the internet.

I'd hate to upset you. 15 years and you still hold a grudge.
