Nokia Lumia 800 Unlocked - £115 Instore @ Tescos

Found 17th Dec 2012
Spend £30 instore at Tesco and get £15 off the already bargain price for this great phone, making £115. You can get it online for £125 - Use the discount code TDX-WRKT to get £10 off, then if you want to use Tesco mobile buy £10 topup to get £15 off giving you a price of £125 with £10 credit.
Tesco will tell you it's locked to Tesco mobile but it's not. I have now bought 2 of these for my kids - they work with my Vodafone SIM and the kids' Virgin SIMs. They sell the one labelled as unlocked for £160 but you don't need to spend that, the Tesco Mobile one at £115 is unlocked. There is no risk - if you find your SIM doesn't work just take it back within 21 days for a refund.Honestly, I can't tell you how fantastic these phones are; they make iPhones look like last century and with WP7.8 coming out for Lumia 800 in the coming week they will get even better. I have an iPad, a company Blackberry and my wife has an android. There is no doubt my next phone will be a Windows phone.

The title says instore.

These phones are fantastic value at this sort of price. Windows Phone 7.8 is available on Navifirm since Thursday last week, I flashed my son's 800 on Friday evening and he's loving it even more now. He's dropped it plenty of times in the last few months and it's still good as new - built out of kryptonite or something harder.

oooossss ffs everything i need ooooooooooooooooooooooossssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

How many more times is going to be posted!

good price but not as good as what i got
119.99 with 20 shopping gift voucher. unlock with my o2 contract. no need to spend 30 at tesco first

I bought this phone for my mum for Christmas.

£12.50 a month with 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 500mb of data (phone for free).

Was pretty chuffed. Hope she likes it!

yeh if you can even get stock (instore as well), don't know why Tesco bother offering this on PayGo

@ #11 why would market figures relating to the now dropped symbian OS have any bearing when talking about the new Windows OS which Nokia has plumbed its hopes to ? All your figures do is show that they have had to desert symbian.

Great phone and great free apps continually offered by Nokia, such that you almost need never buy any! Please note that it requires a Micro Sim so you either need to get a swap from your network or you risk cutting it down yourself if you currently have a standard size sim.

I bought one of these last week for my brother. I too was told it was locked to tesco. But can confirm it is working with an orange sim. Great deal

I never thought I would say this but.....the Windows software on the whole is really good and I actually prefer it to android. There is a lack of apps on the market but all the essential apps are there. Battery life is okay, lasts longer than my ex Huawei ascend and Xperia Play.
Comes with a case and it is unlocked despite the Tesco rep telling me otherwise.

Edit - It only accepts micro sim cards however this not a problem, you can cut the bigger sim card down using the micro sim provided as a guide.

How's the battery on these?

It used to have a lousy battery but it was fixed with a software update ages ago. Now it's got a pretty fantastic battery. If you are a light user you can get 5-7 days out of it (I've managed it) if you turn off data and wi-fi. More typical usage is 2-3 days. I'm not a super heavy user mind.

The phone is good but not that good. The biggest problem is it is lack of apps. Many apps are not found in its store. Another problem is you cannot foresee its future as it looks like going to the end soon. So, I tried it but didn't keep it. It was for fun!

Made the big move from android to this phone a few months ago. Boy am I glad, great phone, plenty of free apps, battery very reasonable.

All that chart shows to me is that Blackberry are in trouble.

Plenty of new apps coming to the store everyday, Nokia Lumia's are the best of the Windows phones imo, Great build quality and Windows OS is silky smooth much slicker performance than other OS's etc..

:p.........

Would agree, Brill build quality, quality crystal clear screen (from any angle). Very smooth touch sensitive.

Heat added

I have an iphone 5 but got given the lumia 800 for work- it is a very nice phone indeed. The screen definitely doesn't have the same res as the iPhone 4/5 (more like a 3GS) and there are a few niggly annoying things for me personally, but overall for £115 this phone is a bargain

Fanboy alert. Figures taken from before WP8 and Lumia 820/920 were released. I hardly think most places selling the Nokia Lumia 920 for £575 is exactly giving them away.
These are cheap because they are last year's generation and have a limited OS update future, but that OS beats anything else currently available. Most WP8 apps will run on WP7.5 and WP7.8, there are a few which require the additional hardware on the new range of phones running WP8. 125,000 apps so far, and a 40% increase in app submissions in the last 3 weeks. Do you think your iPhone 5 is guaranteed to run iOS7? The Apple is all around locking you in to being forced to buy more Apple stuff, even the same stuff again and again (the stupid thing is, they do!!). The Windows phone, without any additional software can print to my HP printer, stream photos to my Samsung TV, play movies to my WD media streamer, share files with any computer I have (5) and access any file on a NAS drive. Can't do any of that with my iPad (bought by work, not my money thankfully), I would need to buy Apple network, Apple printer, AppleTV andd a Mac. No thanks I already have it and don't need to buy it again at twice as expensive as everyone else's.

Which network ?

nice phone. good price. there are a few good images (ROMs) for 800 to replace the original.

Its not a bad phone but it isn't a patch on a decent Android phone.

Not bad for a budget phone if you just use it for the phone and a camera.

The apps aren't great.

Cheers OP - been waiting for a decent price on this unlocked. Gumtree 2nd hand (new) are around £130 and most are locked.

Have some heat !!

All that chart shows to me is that Blackberry are in trouble.



And it is limited to the US and smartphones.

The figures I have seen show that worldwide in the first quater of this year Nokia had just over 19% of the mobile phone market compared to Apple having less than 8%

is a 140.00 now

And yet Nokia's share price has gone from $1.63 in July to $5.87 today so I guess they must have started doing something right.

Got one of these for my Step-son on the Tesco mobile £12.50 per month deal (handy as it can be capped so he can't spend all my money) Just had a look, seems to be £15/month now, but you can get the cyan phone which is rather nice.

You sir, are wrong.

Hot. As a seasoned apple bore, I was considering blowing my money on an iPhone 4S, but I got one of these a few weeks ago when they were on offer with O2. (£130 with a 'free' £20 amazon voucher), and I couldn't be more happy.

I'm using it on giffgaff, I got my sim cut for free at the '3' store even though I brought nothing from them, and as soon as I put it in this phone, Giffgaff automatically sent all the settings down to it so I was using it fully within minutes faultlessly.

As I use a mac, the sync software available works perfectly with iTunes and iPhoto, without the need for using any propiertory 'Zune' rubbish. And the 16 gb you get with this phone is generous at the price.

The camera is a good quality snapper for a phone (I have a dSLR so am pretty fussy) and everything 'just works' and works well. I was previously on android, and yes, although there is not 'as many' apps on it, all the essentials are there. I for one prefer the windows mobile experience. I defy you to find an android phone at this price point that is anywhere near this smooth or responsive.

If you want, go and buy an iPhone, or Galaxy etc, and yes you probably will get a *slightly* better phone, but at around 3 times the price? Not for me, I'd probably drop it or get it stolen. Perfect for PAYG'ers like me who want a shiny new toy to play with.

Tesco ...not Tescos

Voted very hot

Very clever move by Microsoft to get Nokia to use there software, the best phone manufacturer with the best software, Very hot deal.
The symbian software has not been thrown out though, Nokia have made it clear they will be releasing a new symbian smartphone in the distant future.

I am waiting for a windows 8 phone though, hopefully a Nokia around the £200 price point or a little lower.

...and another thing (sorry everyone) - build quality. It made me remember why we all seemed to be in love with Nokia back in the day. It just feels lovely to hold. My fourth favourite thing to handle in fact

Ok, and with that awkwardness, I'll leave it there.

Absolutely a crap phone. I also bought this 2 months back for £115.00 from phones4U and could not keep it for even a single week. Battery is WORST.... It will not last for even 6 hrs. Edges are very sharp and will hurt ur ear if talk for long. Suggestion is, do not buy this phone
