Be aware that if this offer leads you thinking: Great! I'll get a £10/month contract and they'll send me a Galaxy S for nothing - you'll be disappointed.
O2's cheapest monthly deal is £13.50 and that only gives you 50 talk minutes and 100MBbytes. So, yes: free phone but expensive monthly tariffs and a 2 year tie in.

The point of this deal is predominately to get the phone cheap. Many folk will just use their own sim.

Cheap? If this is a 24 month contract then you will have to pay £324 in line rental over the next 24 months on a contract you're hardly ever going to use. This is an old phone now, I have one and it's a great phone but I don't think it should be worth more than £200 brand new.

As for quidco, it's not guaranteed. Still waiting for £30 from TCB for the last o2 contract I purchased, it's only been 7 months...

Perhaps you should recalculate the monthly cost as £10.50 as it is possible to remove the £3 bolt on. There are a few people who will probably pay off the contract early which will mean that they don't have to pay the vat. For anyone doing that this ends up being worthwhile for what is still a good phone although not the latests but perhaps better than what some may be using.

how come you dont pay vat if you pay off early??

You only pay vat on the calls you make so if you pay in advance you won't be using the advance time you will be paying for.

How can you remove the bolt on?

I have two o2 contracts which I never make calls on and I always have to pay for VAT on the line rental...

That's because they are still in use. If you have 'live' contracts then you will pay VAT for your contract. If you request a termination, you will not be charged VAT on the months that you pay for in advance.



You can go into your account online and hit 'My Mobile Bill', then hit 'Manage my Tariff & Bolt Ons'.

There is an option to 'Swap', hit this option and then you will have a choice of bolt ons or to 'Remove my current Bolt On', highlight this and then hit save and you should be done.

cheapest monthyl cost i can see on this is £16.50 ...

Change the Internet bolt on to 100mb then It turns to 13.50.

You can then remove this Bolt on from your account giving 10.50 a month.

Price for the phone has now gone back upto 149.99 ^_^

I have phoned o2 several times over this and they absolutely flatly refuse to waive the VAT on the remaining line rental payments on my contracts if I cancel the contracts.

It was like trying to get blood out of a stone tbh. They've told me the only thing I don't have to pay VAT on are any charges for calls that I've made, not the cost of the remaining line rental regardless of whether I have any unused free minutes or not.
