Not the best iPhone 4 deal in the world but IN STOCK :) iPhone 4 PAYG @ O2 £495

59
Found 28th Sep 2010
Hi, I have just been on the phone to O2 and ordered my new iPhone 4 PAYG.
The prices aren't the best in the world but they have confirmed on 2 seperate phone calls that they have them in stock. I phoned the number shown on the O2 iPhone webpage and didnt order online (08442 020202).

Like I said not really a great price but will help people like me who are itching to get their hands on the iPhone 4 without having to having to sign up to a lenghty contract or have to wait 3-4 weeks (deliver time is up to 7 working days but I got told I might have it tomorrow).

Why voting cold? So far I have tried everywhere to get this handset on PAYG and nowhere has it in stock and there is a waiting list of 3-4 weeks. To buy off Ebay they are going for £500+.

Your thread title says it all (_;)

Still in stock though. and maybe not the best but better than alot out there

Hhhhhmmmmmmm could this be a record for hitting -100° in the shortest space of time???

I think this is the retail price for the phone rather than any kind of deal? better to get direct from Apple and get unlocked and possible quidco?

Original Poster

Still a waiting list of 3-4 weeks though from Apple. Plus I will just jailbreak it to get it unlocked (free to do)

Original Poster

And this has been expired why???? The iPhone 4 is still in stock if anybody is interested (and I'm sure there are a lot that are)

Can get a factory unlocked from apple direct for a extra £5

Plus from vodafone it £432 when you use promotional code: nation10 for £10% discount. http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/5626/desktoprj.png

But you will find Vodafone DO NOT HAVE THE IPHONE 4 IN STOCK. I knew about that code also and there is a thread on here about it saying the problems people where having with it.

@thegrouch - Nope I never expired it and wouldn't expire something that is still current and available. Next stupid comment please!

Here goes then - Incorrect. I ordered an iPhone 4 32GB from Vodafone last Friday for £513 and delivery is scheduled for tomorrow. £20 to unlock to use any sim though.

@HertzVanRental - I really hope you get your iPhone tomorrow. Its not a bad price to pay but as I stated earlier there are some horror stories with the ordering and the delivery. But as the picture shows above the website states they don't have them in stock. Let me know if you do get yours though. Also why dont you jailbreak it so you can use it with any sim? Saves you £20 and I have been jailbreaking iPhones for years with no problems (yet). Obviously this is up to you

You: ??
Sarah: we do not offer any discounts online as the nation code is not valid
You: i just tried it and it still works on your website, it just discounted the £480 to £432
You: it says 10% discount applied to your handset
You: with the plan stating Pay as you go - simply
You: try it and see
Sarah: well in that case you can go ahead with the order...but it wont let you confirm your order as the code is invalid code

Sarah: did you click on place order?
You: it says Sorry, we can't process your payment using the card details you've given us. Please check your card and enter the details again. If there's still a problem, you could try using a different card to pay for your order.
You: but in the check out price it says £432
Sarah: i told you that it wont work with that code

Wow sounds like you're having fun there peterjmay. I have my fingers crossed for you that you manage to get it at the £432. Good luck

sploits, I do agree that Vodafone have provided extremely poor service and I will not hold my breath to see delivery tomorrow - I'll let you know if it does! If anyone wishes to go down the Vodafone route for a worthy saving of 10%, but are willing to put up with the hassle, then there are many tales of horror which can be found on this thread (the deal hasn't expired):

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=1

Saying that, some people have been lucky and have had them delivered not that long after the thread was posted. On the jailbreak issue, there have been comments that their iPhone came with OS 4.0.2 which I assumed couldn't be jailbroken?

the vodafone code does not work!!!!!!

You: so when you input the code why does your shopping cart accept it
You: ?
Sarah: one moment please
You: if the code is not in use why does your site accept it all the way to checkout?
Sarah: as the code is no longer valid if you put the code it wont work
You: has this code ever worked for £432?
Sarah: nope as we do not offer any discounts online with that code
You: well why did the code know the price from £480 to £432?
Sarah: as we do online for £480 it wont accept it for £432
You: strange that you cant click on the link anymore
You: so anyway
Sarah: yeah it wont work
You: say if i was to buy the iphone 4 16gb at £480
Sarah: yes then it will work for £480 but you do not have to put the code
You: and i wanted free texts and free internet per month for £10 - this is possible?
You: £5 a month for each package?
Sarah: you will have to top up later once you get the delivery for the phone
You: top up for phone calls
You: ?
You: yes?
Sarah: yes
You: ok
You: when does this vodafone deal for the iphone 4 run out?
Sarah: so can i help you to order?
You: when does the deal for it for £480 expire?
Sarah: the online deals are not fixed...
Sarah: they keep on changing...
Sarah: hence i wont be able to assure you of the same deal later

I think redsn0w can jailbreak the 4.0.2 iPhones but I'm not 100%. What I plan to do with mine is get the phone, and then download the IPSW for 4.0.1 and try and do it as a restore and see if I can go back. If not there is software out there to roll back but it does mean messing around with your phone (luckily mine will be insured so if I hash it up I have it covered).

god they are stubborn!!!!!!!

It wasn't working on their website when I ordered on Friday, but I phoned them up and the Customer Rep highlighted that if they used their managers log-in for the ordering system, it should accept expired codes and the nation10 code worked - hence I got a 32GB iPhone for £513. Might be useful if someone wants to try?

Depends on how much you surf the net on your phone. iPhones are data heavy as there are loads of apps that use your data a lot (fbook, safari, sky sports etc). At home and on your WiFi you are OK but 250mb isnt a great lot and the networks seem to sting you when you go over your allowance.

Sarah: hence i wont be able to assure you of the same deal later
Sarah: the price might hike too
You: for the £5 bolt on internet usage per month is this unlimited?
You: how much are u allowed to surf the net for
Sarah: it will be 250MB
Sarah: let me check
You: is that alot?
You: i only need it for emails, internet, downloading a few aps
Sarah: On a 500 MB data you can surf around 7.5 hours of web browsing, 15 tracks, 7-8 short video downloads and 150 email every month.
Sarah: isn't that good?
You: im not sure how much i use currently
You: how much is the 500mb a month deal?
Sarah: On a 500 MB data you can surf around 15 hours of web browsing, 30 tracks, 15 short video downloads and 300 email every month.
You: how much is that with vodafone per month?
You: seeing as though the 250mb one is £5??
You: what happens if you go over your limit?
You: i need to see how it compare to o2
Sarah: you will be charge extra
Sarah: if you exceed the usage
You: do u get a warning?
You: when does vodafone get the white iphone?
Sarah: yes you get a warning text
You: ok i am tempted
Sarah: so would you like to order now?

Always worth a try but does sound a little bit dodgy lol

You: actually ive just noticed that your deal is the same as tesco so, i ll think about it
You: if it was £432 i would
Sarah: we sell all the phones which are tested & good to use
You: but i dont think so but thanks for your time
Sarah: if you want to order with us now
Sarah: then do not put the code
You: £432 yes - £480 - now
Sarah: and it will work
You: thanks anyway but theres no deal here really
Sarah: No worries...
Sarah: so is that all for now?
You: ok
You: yes

I agree

250MB wouldn't get you much purely because they iPhones do seem data heavy so you have saved yourself the hassle of being scared to go online lol
