Samsung Galaxy S4 £429 @ O2

Found 6th May 2013
Right I didn't explain myself properly the other day so I apologise and it caused quite a big debate on whether the contract I got was true after all. And I suppose I can't blame people for voting it cold as I didn't understand how it worked myself at first and it seems too good to be true. But It has been confirmed by many people now who have took out this contract I have and I will explain again how it works for people who don't know about this deal or who don't understand

You can get this contract in store or online, its up to you, but if you want to have a look on there website first you can see the pricing for yourself

O2 have brilliantly now brought out a contract which allows us to stop the contract at ANY time and only pay the for the phone cost, not for your airtime (if it doesn't make sense yet, hopefully it will by the end!)

"Unlike other contracts O2 Refresh splits your contract into two parts. So when you're ready for a new phone, you just pay off the balance of your Phone Plan, not the remaining months of your Airtime Plan that you won't use"

Try to remember the difference between the "Airtime Plan" and "Phone Plan" then you will see later..

click the link above and follow the instructions carefully below to get the price I did.

1) First select "Samsung" then "Galaxy S4"

2) Secondly choose "Airtime Plan" (I chose Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Txts, 2GB Data

3)Then choose "Phone Plan" and click on £69.99

And then you should get the overall costs of the contract on the right hand side

Total phone cost over 24 months
£429.99

So what happens is you pay for two bills which come out at the same time

£22.00 Monthly airtime payment + £15.00 Monthly phone payment = £37.00 Total monthly bill

So here's the best part, if you want to CANCEL, you ONLY pay the £15.00 Monthly phone payment TIMES by how many months you have left during the 24 months contract. You are not tied into this contract, you can stop it whenever you like, you may have to pay a remaining months "Airtime" bill off, but thats it! That means you DO NOT have to pay the remaining airtime contract off.

Which would usually mean you have to pay £37 by how many months you have left which if it was 12 months for example would come to £444

With this O2 refresh contract, if you were to cancel in a year it will only cost you £180 to leave (£15 Monthly phone payment X by 12 months = £180)

If you were to to take out this contract tomorrow and leave after a few days you would only pay £360! Also don't forget you paid £69.99 upfront making the total cost £429.99! If you were clever you could sell this on and make abit of profit ^_^

It does seem particularly weird why its cheap to pull out of a contract earlier and to be able to pay for a phone which is has got a retail price of around £600. This may be a mistake on O2 side so if your interested in getting this contract then do because myself and other people have and they may soon realise they have made a mistake

Hopefully I've made it abit clearer for people to understand now, if you don't msg me as I have this contract myself and will try to help you to understand

Seems a good deal ,heat anyway but I think o2 are poor

students should get 30% off this plan.

co-operative.coop/mem…ip/ Give these a ring to join, they will give you your membership number over the phone, register for o2 open logging in using COOPMEM, you will then get a code for 30% off the airtime plans. Hope that makes sense!

I am an o2 client now, but if the student way is not possible, maybe I will try this. Thanks!

37 * 24 is like 800 I don't get how this works at only 429. Can somebody please explain thanks

Yah, how did it arrive to 429??? Even the 30*24 = 720

coz u can cancel the payment for the contract, and only pay the monthly payment for the phone, which is 15.00 per month

so u r paying 15*24+ upfront payment, which in total is 409.99 for HTC ONE and 429.99 for s4.

it is on the o2 priority moments app, other than that i cannot prove it im afraid

You cannot cancel the airtime contract it's for 24 months.

From t and c's: O2 Refresh includes 24 month Airtime Plan on our Pay Monthly Mobile Agreement and options to pay for your phone upfront or on a consumer credit agreement.

of course you can!

o2.co.uk/ref…ons

What if I want to leave O2 and end my O2 Refresh plan?

You just need to pay off whatever's left on your Phone Plan. Then you can either sign up to a new plan, or leave O2. If you'd like to leave O2, after you pay off your Phone Plan, ask us for your PAC code or give us notice to cancel your account.
If O2 Refresh makes it easy to leave by just paying off your phone, aren't you afraid all your customers will leave?

O2 Refresh gives customers the freedom to leave and therefore, we think, the confidence to stay. There are plenty of perks when you're an O2 customer. Exclusive offers and experiences with Priority Moments. Queue jumping with Priority Tickets. Behind-the-scenes access with Priority Sports. Not to mention free O2 Wifi, and cash for your phone with O2 Recycle. And now with O2 Refresh, the freedom to get a new phone whenever you want to.

can i buy a contract from another site and then come get it added on this way?

thanks

Looking through the terms makes this very confusing. On one hand it says 24 month airtime contract and on other it says leave when you like. Yet phone is cheaper on one plan than another.

This seems like a very good deal to me.

Banned

Duration of agreement 24 months
Phone cash price £649.99
Upfront cost £69.99
Credit amount £360.00
Interest rate (fixed) 0%
APR representative 0%
Monthly phone payment £15.00
Total phone amount payable £429.99
Monthly airtime payable £22.00

From my understanding it looks like u have to pay off the phone price which is £25 x 24. Is that right?

its £15 a month for the phone and £22 a month for the airtime but you can cancel the contract at any time apparently. don't forget the down payment of £69.99

so the sums are £15 x 24 months + £69.99 = £429.99

SO basically you open this contract then end it straightaway. And pay off the phone only.

I must admit it's pretty confusing at first. I didn't have a clue about how this tarrif works before I signed up to it. I had to get the advisor explain to me a couple of times before I understood it. I actually posted it on here to get some feedback to see if O2 and this new refresh tarrif is any good. If it's not I've got a cooling period were I can cancel it.

how long is the "cooling period"? That's the KEY question!

I'm trying to get my head around this but I'm not having much luck

Can you only leave after 6 months though? I would be surprised if you can cancel the airtime the day after you take it out for example!

Other than that, its seems like a good deal actually. Especially if you get the 30% off ( which i think i have got just by siging up to O2 Open with COOPMEM??!!?) I have a code for 30% sent to my phone anyway.

I even said to her, so if to say I cancel this contract tomorrow, I only have to pay £359 (as I've paid the £69 upfront fee) and she said yes that's correct.

I don't know how they can afford to do this as the phone retails at around the £650 mark, but I'll have to see how it goes if and when I cross that bridge of wanting to cancel the contract

7 days cooling period

Thank you very much! I will check it up.


no worries

basicatly this deal is to take out the deal and cancel the contract paying only the phone price (will add it when outlook stops playing up below!)

making this £429.99 for the phone.

also, taking this out online could mean that you can get £50.50 topcashback meaning £380 for the phone.

Doesnt look like you can do it online yet.

Does this 30% off apply to both monthly airtime and phone costs or only for the airtime cost?

I would imagine only airtime as it says "30% off O2 refresh AIRTIME plans"

It's simply an error that O2 will correct soon.
Need to pay 299.99 upfront if it's 10.00 monthly. That's simply wrong.

HI, Do you get the 20% discount on the mobile price as well?

Original Poster

No its just the air time plan. I can see why people are confused and are voting it cold. I must admit it's really confusing and it's something I commented on when they sent me a txt regarding feedback to the visit to the store. I really hope this is all true. Because I do not want them to say there's a pricing error and have to end up paying more

Hm, just worked out that over 12 months (if you want a 12 month contract) this works out at more expensive than the P4U 12 month vodafone with quidco offers that were recently on for the HTC One and S4 (although you do have 1Gb more data). This would be £544.80 for a HTC ONE in total after the 30% discount for example.

Seems quite good if you just want the phone though...IF you can cancel the moment you take out the airtime.....

yes you can, click galaxy s4, £22 plan and £15 phone plan, will come to £429.99

I was told this exact thing when I enquirer about the s4 last week over the fone by a adviser from retentions he told me that soon as the phones paid off you can leave without paying the rest of the 24m off ??
When I called up the O2 store in the Trafford centre they told me I would have to pay the rest of the 24m off plus the fone
