You can only get the £30 deal on the 'Nokia 3' as the upfront cost for the p8 lite has now gone up to £90. But if you want the Nokia 3, just go to carphone warehouse and tell them that you want to buy the phone sim free. Then ask them to add a o2 '12 month sim only contract' you will have to pay a £30 upfront cost for the phone. Then take the phone home but don't put the o2 SIM card in it or any other phone as this will activate the sim. Then call o2 customer services, you can find the number for it on google, and tell them that you would like to cancel the sim only only contract, they can't say no, just make sure that you call them about 3 days after you get the phone, then you will be fine as you are still within your '14 day cooling off period'. If they ask you about the phone, tell them it was a sim only contract without a phone. Then ask them to send you either a email or text to confirm you have cancelled and make sure they cancel the direct debit, and check your bank to make sure it's been cancelled there to, hope that helps.
Good price, BUT for £30.00 more get a 2 year guarantee buying from John Lewis.

No so much a ‘trick’ as relying on Carphone Warehouse being too dense to realise what you’re up to - fair play for managing to do it but it’s an exploit really. They (or O2) obviously lose money on this as the phone is worth more than £30 and they won’t get commission or ongoing revenue - maybe you don’t mind this, but in the past, networks would chase you down for the price of the handset (which they are entitled to do). Of course, they have to catch you first.

I agree this is a very good mobile, I got this for £30 last week with the o2 12 month sim only trick last week.

I've one for 6 months and it is great. Hardly any slowdown, and it even runs PUBG, albeit on low settings. Buy a case for it though, the plastic they used is apparently the slippiest and frictionless material ever made by man. Drop mine near enough every day, and I dropped my S5 maybe once in the 3 years I had it

I like astronomy apps, will this run Sky Map ? is there a gyro ? I can see it has a compass.

If you read what I've just told 'SupeR130' your see the only mobile there for £30 on this deal is the Nokia 3, still a very nice phone though.

The storage for apps puts me off a bit - but its seems a decent phone and far cheaper than the latest huawet and honor phones
Best all rounder phone I've had. Just does it all very well and super reliable reception on voice and data.

No problem, hope you get the deal.
V hot imo, but have personally decided I wouldn't have a main phone with 16gb ROM anymore. Just not enough.

Great for a light user/backup/spare, but then it becomes a bit overpriced for a spare...

You say it's a 'trick' but in theory what I and others have done is legal. Don't forget when you do this you have 2 contracts. Contract no 1, is your 'sim only contract' with o2, the mobile phone you have got has nothing to do with o2. Contract no, is your mobile phone with carphone warehouse, the only reason why myself or anyone else on here has paid only £30 for the mobile phone, is because carphone warehouse have been kind enough to knock £100 off the upfront cost making the upfront cost just £30, because you or anyone else on here have choosen a 'sim free mobile'. And everyone is entitled to cancel if they wish to, because you still have your '14 day cooling off period'.

I've tried to stay clear of posting these 12 month deals, because a lot of people have tried and had so much hassle trying to cancel the sim only part, I've posted a few of deal deals myself.
On the other hand some people have said it was very easy, especially using o2 as they, I imagine just see it as an o2 refresh deal and let you cancel, not so much with Vodafone

‘Trick’ was your word. I said ‘exploit’ because you are exploiting CPW’s laziness. If you think Carphone pays £30 or less for this phone so ‘there is no victim’ then you’re tricking yourself. Carphone should get commission from O2 for selling you a SIM only, you are denying them that but they’re clearly not smart enough to notice (yet). It would also be perfectly ‘legal’ for them to charge you for the full price of the handset as per the contract terms. I never said what you did was illegal, I deliberately refrained from using that word.

I'm pretty sure that the first post I had seen about it was one that you posted, I was quite skeptical at first when I read it because I didn't think it would work. But then there was another post from someone last week about the same thing, so I got the 'huawie p8 lite 2017' for just £30, got the 12 month sim with o2, left it for days then called o2 and said I had changed my mind about the sim bit. And I had no problems from 02 at all, the only thing I would add and advise others to do is do what I did and ask o2 to send you a email to confirm that it's been cancelled and then you have it in writing if they try to go back on there word. Once Mrswitch, thank you very much for all your excellent posts.

I stand corrected, 'trick' was my word that I used. I admit the phone should be more expensive than £30, but it's only that price because myself and others are combining it with a '12 month sim' and carphone warehouse are deducting £100 off the price of the handset. If you buy the phone without a sim it is £130. I agree it's a loophole that carphone warehouse need to close. It's not just me doing this, there's plenty of others taking up this deal as well, and let's not forget everyone has a '14 day cooling off period' which is the law, so that like myself and others, if you decide to change you can and are quite within your rights to do so.

I understand what you are doing but it is an exploit (or loophole as you called it) and Carphone Warehouse are the victim (through their own idiocy).

But you keep stating this 14-day cooling off period as law but it’s also law for the network or Carphone to demand you pay the full price of the handset if you terminate early, it’s also in the contract, it’s also legal and they can do it during the lifetime and that is why many of us aren’t bothering risking it on the off-chance they do catch on. Same with the O2 Refresh exploit, it’s obviously not the intention and if you refused and it went on to debt collection (not unheard of), you wouldn’t have a leg to stand on because it’s obvious you should have paid more than £30 for the handset.

I and others on here have just paid what carphone warehouse ask for I.e £30 for the upfront cost, if they asked me for more towards the upfront cost of the mobile at the point of sale, then I would of had no issue paying extra.

If you really believe that then you have nothing to worry about should they ever come knocking then... read your T&Cs if you don’t believe it, if you early terminate they can charge you the full price of the handset. Whether they will or not is up in the air, but at the end of the day, it’s a gamble and as it’s obviously not ‘how it’s meant to be played’. I don’t need or want the hassle of them suddenly realising and potentially chasing down everyone who did what you did for the handset cost.

It’s not a question of ethics or morals here (eg stealing a film via BitTorrent because you think the film industry has too much money), the phone is obviously worth more than £30 and the contract states they can charge you the full price. What is the complication?

Like I said, I said in my last comment, I would not have had a problem with paying the full price.

Is this available for any phone on a 12-month 02 contract? I'm just wondering how to search for such deals online.
For example, if I order any phone from CPW with a 12 month O2 contract, is the contract portion able to be cancelled within 14 days, mutually exclusive to the handset, which would be able to be kept?

There are other mobile phones available with a 12 month o2 sim with a higher upfront cost. Just make sure when you call o2 to cancel, tell them it was a sim only contract with no phone, then you can keep the phone and ask o2 to send you a email to confirm your cancellation.

Thanks again! And so the trick part here is to ask CPW to add the O2 SIM as an additional SIM only part, for which they give you a discount on some pay as you go phones? Does this only work for O2 and is it only available if you take an O2 SIM only, or is that just the example for ease? Sorry for all the Qs!

Go on the website, click on special offers on the menu tab on the left side, there'll be an option for 'sim free phones with sim only' choose a phone out of those options.
