O2 Retentions DIRECTLY WITH O2 NO AFFILIATE - HTC One Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Texts & 1GB Data £32 p/m Free Handset

Found 14th Apr 2013
Just spoke to o2 Retentions on their online chat and managed to haggle the HTC One £32 tariff deal from £129.99 down to get the handset for free. (24 Months)

This is currently £42 a month with O2.

Basically said the Carphone Warehouse was giving me a better deal (which they were), and I had spoken to O2 retentions on the phone who offered me that deal. The girl then matched it after originally offering me it free on £37 a month then £35 a month.

Incase anyone is out of contract and looking for it!

Cheers

U got robbed lol cold

Not a deal as bespoke to you. You don't mention how long the contract is? If it's 24 months then you have in fact got robbed.

Was £27/pm pre order -.- Cold sorry

U got robbed lol cold

Same as every other comment on here, you have been stitched up right and proper. £27 for new customers with exactly same allowances. That means you are £120 worse off. Talk about rewarding loyalty.

@Fulterz

re.above comment if your not happy with the deal you got, do the following;

Once you receive the phone don't open it and return it under the 7day DSR. (some companies don't allow you to return if you open and insert a sim into the phone, dunno if that's correct tho)

p.s. not voted either way.

Are you stuck in a time warp?

for the htc one i got offered £200 upfront 600 minutes 750 MB (no extra charge for using o2 4g when it is launched by o2 in the summer) unlimited texts £20 for 2 years, works out £680 in total, thinking it's rather expensive any thoughts appreciated

The phone is quality, far superior hardware than the s4 Samsung (none of the plastic exterior rubbish) but the plan is weak 1gb data? and more so if the contract is for two years, sorry. x

Sorry, yeah it is for 24 months! This deal is directly with O2, and is the best price available for that tariff across all of the major high street providers - Orange, EE, T-Mobile, Carphone Warehouse etc. so, no, I didn't get robbed.

This is the best price should you not wish to go with unknown, untrusted, and badly rated 3rd parties through uswitch such as mobiles.co.uk, dialaphone etc. which is something I didn't want to gamble on. At least when you go with a high street store you can go in and deal with it there and then.

I'm also getting a discount on this with f&f, but it is still definitely a very good deal - the best infact - for those wishing to go directly with O2.

Laughing at the temperature, it is the best deal any high street store are offering on the HTC, how can it be cold X)

It's usually £42 a month with O2 mate lol I take it everyone is comparing the deal to the affiliate deals?

What's wrong with Dialaphone and affiliates? I've used them in the past and secured cracking deals. You'll find you will beat your own deal looking via them direct.

I have looked - read some really bad reviews about them online. I was very tempted by the price but like to pay that bit extra for knowing who you're dealing with if something goes wrong. You can't go to Dialaphone and strangle the guy behind the counter

As I said, I'm lucky enough to be getting a discount on this price but if anyone like me is looking to go/stay with o2 directly this is the best deal for them on the HTC.

I am sure fulterz first thing you going to do tomorrow morning is to ring o2 n tell um that u don't want it. I know you are trying to justify your post but this cold temperature will crystallize you lol

mobiles.co.uk owned by Carphone Warehouse, dialaphone.co.uk owned by Phones4U. Have been going for donkeys years, never had a problem with either, so i don't see the fascination with going direct with O2, it is not the Utopia you imagine it is. You have got robbed plain and simple, hence the cold votes.

If the alternatives were with real unknown I'd accept your argument. bearing in mind the deals from mobiles and dialaphone does not require any redemption, where is the problem?

Each to own, but I guess I'll not be looking to you for advice if I'm looking to bag a bargain.

Nah maj I get 30% off the price through friends & family discount so I'm on this price with 30% off, but seen people looking for O2 retentions recently and this is their best deal.

It is still a fact that this is the best price for this tariff on any network directly.

Someone please show me an amazing deal in comparison? The one I see on uswitch is only £50 chearer and you're going through a 3rd party.

So tpol, the best deal on uswitch for this tariff is £718... I've been robbed of £50 for going directly where I can deal with a high street store without any hassle phoning random numbers? Hardly robbed plain and simple haha !

As for the cold votes, this deal got 378 degrees last week - hotukdeals.com/dea…882 = and it's £36 dearer than this - £86 dearer than the O2 deal on Uswitch.

Here is the same plan, as mentioned £50 cheaper through Uswitch, 553 degrees, only £50 cheaper, 50p a week cheaper by going through a 3rd party Robbed? I think not. hotukdeals.com/dea…086

vodafone gave my wife this phone for a 12 months deal unlimted texts and call 4gb for £49 a month with a little threat of leaving them. £588 for the year and can upgrade 72 days early

Retention deals usually don't get very hot, but when the same deal is also available to new customers for a cheaper price then of course, it's freezing.

Ok Sam so when it is be sure to let me know

phones4u.co.uk/bas…167

12 month contract via Vodafone meaning you can upgrade in 12 months (or 75 days earlier through Vodafone direct) a grand total of £613!!! Plus there's the potential of cash back on top.

No 24 month contract, same texts, data and mins...that was my first search and there's plenty more deals out there.

Did you phone O2 yet to cancel your transaction???

So you get 12 months worth of less unlimited minutes, texts and 12GB of data for over £600+? Very good.

There are no deals better from all of the major providers (I've spoken to them all) that is a FACT. Get that through your mind.

If you'd bothered to read my posts, I get 30% off the £32 a month, so no I've no cancelled my transaction. In any case, I wouldn't have been doing so if I hadn't. Since there are no better deals at the moment! D'oh!

This thread is hilarious

But you'll have a 2 year old phone with a 4MP camera and no resell value.
