I know this was posted previously but that was a misprice. I've contacted Tesco and they have confirmed that the current price of £329.97 is correct. It will be locked to Tesco Mobile, but an O2 Sim will work in it. Currently the Sim Free Nokia N8 is £429 on nokia.co.uk/fin…0x0

It's still anyone's guess as to how good and bug free Symbian 3 will be but at almost £100 cheaper than the sim free version it maybe worth a try at this price.

Looks great. Might get rid of my iPhone 3gs as I had enough of it's poor reception!
Also the 12 mega pix camera sounds fab!!

Fancied this for a while. A bit much to splash out in one go even at a good price.

Patience is a virtue... My virtues are being tested!

Will an O2 sim definatley work only that it normally only works the other way around (Tesco sim in an O2 phone). I know Tesco piggy back O2 network but normally there handsets are still locked to Tesco sims.

I have just had Tesco mobile unlocked for a 02 sim card. Cost a £5

How did you do that did you ring Tesco or was it down the market ?

why does the title still state "(o2 sims will work)" if grabbit has said they will not?

O2 Sim will not work on mobiles locked to O2. I have experienced this.

the OP hasn't been online to realize they have given false info and correct title

Just purchased (this week) a Samsung Wave from Tesco on Tesco Mobile.

I can confirm that BOTH o2 and giffgaff sims work in the phone.I was expecting to have to call Tesco to have it unlocked to use giffgaff but no need.

So not all Tesco's phones are locked. The o2 family of sims worked great although sims from 3 or Orange wouldn't

The information I have been given by both Tesco Direct (0845 600 4411) and by Tesco instore is what I have posted. This handset is on/locked to Tesco Mobile but Tesco advise it will work with an O2 sim card.

krispykreme seems to have a Tesco Mobile with an O2 sim working in it OK so how wrong is my info then??? This combined with what I have been told is why the deal still states O2 sims will work with it.

If you still don't believe me then ring Tesco Direct on the above number and ask for yourselves The catalogue item number is 209-8479. I've posted a deal with the information given, I've now posted the contact details for Tesco Direct for you to verify this yourself along with the catalogue number. I can't do any more than this. I think in future I'll refrain from posting any further deals.

Calm yourself...do you think a sales assistant from a tesco store would have any idea which sim cards would work in the phone? I know in any of my local tesco stores a sales assistant wouldn't have a clue which sims would work,can't blame them for that,that isn't compulsory knowledge for their job position,

I wouldn't waste time & money either ringing tesco direct for similar reasons,

why not try googling...will an o2 sim work in a tesco phone and see the numerous threads,

I have had many,many tesco locked phones and can confirm an o2 sim did not work,

Regarding krispykreme stating their phone worked,I can't comment on that other than to say that would be an exception rather than the normal

this item is not currently available anyhow
