Just choose a sim, basket price will still be £99.
Excellent phone for the price. Had it a month. Can't fault it.

Usually yes.
Oooh, this is tempting as Carphone Warehouse cancelled my order when I tried to get it for this price on PAYG upgrade last week. But might it drop further in the Jan sales? Heat added regardless.

Well the Nokia 5 is 720p and the Moto G5 is 1080p...
Worst phone I've ever had. Often don't get texts through, a basic function yet a common problem for the Nokia 5 ... community.phones.nokia.com/sup…le=
Great price

Yes it's a very technical task that you must have talent for that you cannot do by yourself and so should get someone else.

The software is a bit of a mess to be honest. The two biggest problems are not receiving SMS and background tasks being killed as soon as they are off screen. At least HMD are now taking feedback for the Oreo beta, so I'm hopeful that the issues will be fixed when the final build is released.

The SMS issue can be somewhat resolved by installing Textra and setting it as the default SMS app.
Had this phone for about a month, have to say for the price i'm very impressed. Although does lag from time to time, notifications don't always come through and memory fills up quickly (16GB internal but space for SD card)

Nice first phone to get, or for teenage kids. Personally I am looking to sell mine on and splash out a bit more for a better phone.
If you are on O2 then fine, but surely its better to buy from Carphone Warehouse if you want it unlocked?

For a tenner more (technically just £5 more as there is £5 cashback) you get a unlocked phone with no branding, network lock and a tenner worth of credit for your troubles. Carphone Warehouse only sell unlocked phones.
i spent a while umming and ahhing over this vs p8lite. seems Nokia isnt quite there with the android range maybe next year. huawei though are solid. would go with p8lite for same price.

I'd summarise the above as: OK if you're not too fussy but has problemsand you can do better for the money. Moto it is then!
Wondering whether anyone unlocked this phone via ebay? Just wanted to confirm whether it is possible or not..
129 at John Lewis or Amazon guys. Think carphone is 149 still?
