My first post, so please be nice!

Found this instore this morning, at the Tesco Slough store-

Virgin mobile Samsung C300 - pink pay as you go phone

marked up @ £20 , but scanned at £10!

it even has £1 of credit on it, and if you register online you get another £2 credit

nice simple little phone, not very high spec, but nice looking, and well built

not sure if this appies to all stores, but in my opinion, a bargain price!

Why are people voting cold?

surely with £3 credit, included this phone for £10 is a bargain?

Don't worry about it. I have voted hot. You can't go wrong with it.

Good find - voted hot.

Did I see a deal on here not so long ago that said you could take ANY phone to them to be recycled and you would get £50??? I can't find anything on the site so I might just be imagining things???

Maybe because when people are going into their local Tescos and getting the item scanned - it doesnt come up as £10???

A good deal - the perfect recipient for shoving the free sims that they offer every now and again into and taking on holiday so the most that can be lost if your phone is pinched is a tenner.

I've been using one of these as a spare for a few months now...great little phone if you just want a basic one, I use it more than my 'fancy' phone these days lol

Good find:gift:

Absolutely right. It's a forum to share and even if you post a deal that others think isn't good, you will (hopefully) find out why - usually by getting links to other prices. I'm great at posting cold deals, but I always learn something in the process (BTW, this deal is hot! Heat added and rep left for the OP).

great find. I will need to check my store. I need a spare on. thanks. hot hot hot

and for the gentlemen- i have found woolies are doing the same phone in black, on Orange network for £15 -

Would it be easy to convert this to use on Orange?

Original Poster

you cannot unlock it online - i have checked,

but there are plenty of market stalls, small independant phone shops that would do it for between £5 and £10

Everyone does, because we're special;-).

Great find, though can't find it, now: direct.tesco.com/sea…300

Don't be afraid to post, someone will always: moan - point out it's less or already been posted somewhere else. Ce La Vie

Only tip from my humble self ( not criticizing ) put a direct link to the exact deal, i.e:
Check out the pay as you go phones in our clearance sale. They all come with a Tesco Standard tariff SIM card, which connects you to the Tesco Mobile network. Hurry while stocks last! All come with FREE DELIVERY.

You seem to be forgetting O2, T-Mobile, 3, Vodafone, Virgin....

I have used O2,T-Mobile,Virgin and Orange. In my experience Orange are the worst in terms of customer service and responding to your complaints. I am sure there are many others who would agree.

if you have a virgin mobile account, go onto their website log on,click on my rewards and then buy a phone, the C300 phone shows at £14.99 but if you go through to the virginmobile website first by wepromise.co.uk if offers £8.00 cashback.

I think the firmware needs to be downgraded before they can be unlocked!

No downgrade of firmware required, you can get a samsung unlock cable for under a fiver on the bay which does the trick.

Cheers Dude, bought two in Hull, the fat lass serving wouldn't sell my sister the last one despite being allowed two per customer.

Still, two new phones for under £20.....off to exchange them tomorrow at one of them dodgy dealer shops.....you know, the ones that have a dog sat in the corner. :thumbsup:

Personally I'd rate Orange, Vodafone & "3" all on a par for rubbish customer service. O2 all the way now...

They all got **** customer service, they only give you good CS if they think you will spend more and give them more money.

The same goes for all companires - simplistic but true.

I needed a simple phone for my mother so I went for the pink C300 today. It scanned at £19.99.

At customer service the lady asked if I wanted it in black or red. Miffed at having to pay £19.99, I opted for black and off she went to get one. Whenshe got back to the Customer Service desk she scanned it to check the price.

"Oooh... that's cheap" she said as my eyes lit up, "only.... £19.99!"

I smiled gently so that she couldn't see that I had bitten through the inside of my lip.

I guess they corrected the misprice then :x

Original Poster

not sure if this was a misprice?

im pretty sure this phone is being discontinued- hence the drop in price
and my good lady saw them for sale today in Tesco Loudwater (near High Wycombe) for £10, and labelled up @ £10 (none left though!)

I think you may have paid too much Coldfinger

non in Chesterfield

phond up local tesco short while ago, they said they have non in stock and that the price is £19.99

this is at 14.33- on 5 march
