Samsung Galaxy S3 on O2 @ Tesco Phone Shop for total £504

Found 30th May 2012
This deal may not be for everyone, but certainly is for someone like me who has a SIM only deal with data included. Tesco Phone Shop are selling this phone on a 24 month contract with O2 giving you 300min, unlimited texts and 500MB data (with an upfront phone cost of £50) for £27 per month.

If you get the data bolt on removed, the monthly cost comes down to £21. Now there's TCB on for the next 4 days where they are offering £50.50 cashback on any contract deal. This £50.50 offsets the upfront phone cost of £50.

So total phone cost over the 24 months
-> 21 x 24 = £504

O2 will unlock your phone for free. So you get the phone at its retail price with 300 minutes and unlimited texts with the cost spread over 2 years. Can't get better than that!

Why cold??? Can any one of the cold voters give any reason they are voting cold. Is there any better deal on this phone?

Can you end contract early and save the vat or even only 10% on O2?

I think I've heard that one too... O2's T&C state that O2 may, at it's own discretion, not charge the VAT. If that be the case, then the total cost comes down by a further 20% making the cost £403.20

Can you definitely get the bolt on removed?

Just about to ask that! I ordered a sim free one from carphonewarehouse for 500 quid, rather have that than a contract but this would be really good providing the bolt in could be removed, you can then use another sim, spread cost over 2 years interest free and have a sim with mins and texts for a spare phone in car etc.

Thanks op for posting. Have played with phone in tesco and it is gorgeous, white only though which is a bit chav but I ordered one from cpw, me likey likey!

Sounds very messy when you just buy it sim free from cpw for £499.95!

The S2 has a better screen than S3.

When I compared my S2 with friends S3, his was not as white on a white page, and not as bright on full brightness.

Buy the S2 and save some cash.

Cold.

Agreed! I'd love to do that too... Just that I don't have 500 quid to spare.

I haven't done it myself as yet, but loads of people have commented on other O2 deals on hukd that they've done it.

Great phone good deal for people who dont have £500 cash. Hot

Yes you can get the bolt on removed, and they unlock for free

every deal from tesco with bolt on,personally i thinking the getting Galaxy note, and every body says if you remove bolt on it gets cheaper,
I rang tesco,they say no thats your contract with the bolt on we cant remove off,
i rang O2 they say u need to stay with your contract,,,,soooo
Where is coming from that moving bolton,,,
Or what is the way and how instead of talking plz show people how to do that
Is it garantee?????????

The people that have had there Bolt ons removed...have you been able to remove them straight away?

I got the galaxy note deal about a month ago on o2 for £21.50 as soon as my o2 password was sent to the phone I logged on and removed bolt on saving £6 a month. It happened immediately and got email and SMS confirmation that it had been removed

I've order one for myself. Its a shame tesco take a couple of days to process the order. So i will get my phone only after the jubilee weekend :-/

I ordered mine on Thursday 31st May and tesco processed the phone once my credit check had passed. I got the phone delivered the next day Friday 1 June in time for the holiday

Has the phone got any o2 bloatware on it?

Not that I can see. Only the samsung app like the google market. Overall worked much better then my HTC desire HD.
I seep of the camera and the user interface is so fast. And browsing is so quick that is feels like the phone is now waiting for data over my wifi.

I am going to get another phone for the wife with the one plan on three with quidco. That way we get load of minutes text and unlimited internet when out and about. I can just turn the wifi hot spot on on the three phone and then this o2 one can access the internet via the three phone

Very tempting, are we sure you can remove bolt on? I called up and they said you can't

I still don't understand this bolt on thing, if you remove it then how do you use the internet? I mean is that O2 cloud everywhere? Please can someone explain?

It for folk who want an s3 who are still in contract and want to use there old sim

Oh I see! Thanks
