Hi

I have been to vodafone today to get the samsung s5 or htc one m8 deal and looking at other phones I have noticed that s4 mini is at a good price.

225 reduced to 125. Didn't have time to ask if it's Christmas sale only or permanent price, but it's online also!

Good deal in my opinion!:)

Vodafone website says yes:)

unlike the three offer, this could be locked to vodafone.. any idea how much to unlock?

I understand three phone also comes unbranded.

How much is this one on three, can't find on website

Did you get the S5 or the HTC at the reduced prices?

Elbandito

Vodafone website says yes:)

Thx :-)

It's £119.99 online and instore and best of all it's unlocked unlike the Vodafone one which is locked and will cost £20 from voda to unlock as with all payg phones £10 top-up is required unless you get lucky check this thread out over 1800 degrees of heat

I got one each:)

Would buy this but have just gotten a £40 carphone warehouse voucher for Christmas. Anyone know, can I use my voucher to buy Vodafone top up in cpw stores.

Cannot find it on the three website anymore, so i suspect they have sold out online but may have them instore. From what i have read from other threads, Vodafone is a bad company to deal with..

If this is not unlocked, it would definitely be worth checking three instore (they will be unlocked). Not a bad deal otherwise

Did this ever get a KitKat update? - Great phone but so dated with JB on there. It is 4G.

it is £120 for the handset and £10 credit top up which you also have to buy, So the total comes to £130.The phones are un locked and mine does not have any 3 logos on screen. They are 4G ready and take micro (small) sim only. You can buy these on white or black from the 3 sales line.you can find number from their website or google it.Hope this helps.

I want s3 not mini!Anyone?



79 quid saw today in vodafone as well. Vodafone isnt a bad company to deal with. I bought phones on many occasions (s5 minis for 225, lg g2s for 175, htc m8 290, etc). I think because of 1 fiasco with lg g2 everybodys gonna say they are not worth dealing with. Having said that i am still waiting for my 2 lg g2s from the fiasco black friday deal, but with so many orders and broken system something like that must have happened.

I am not trying to defend them,they show how poor customer service can be, but often they have good deals:)


Edit: sorry 79 was for s3 mini, misread the normal s3 was wanted

you can buy them for £119 at Three, and Three don't lock their handsets any more.

Bought two as presents from the Three store in York. I called to reserve them and they said we dont need to as they have shed loads of them. A great phone for the price. Can confirm they are unlocked from Three.

Hit or miss if phone is locked to Vodaphone.
i bought one for friend few months back and it was unlocked.

Heads up if you need to contact Voddy CS which is a joke but that,s only my own opinion.

Also voddy customers having major problems with pre- installed bloat software on these mobiles draining battery very quickly.
good price for the mobile though.

Common problem on the forums

As mentioned, £119 on 3, but you do need to buy a £10 credit sim so £129, however they are completely unlocked with no 3 branding on the handset or even on start-up. Great little phone, recommended!

Bought one on boxing day without 10 pound top up. No white one on PAYG.Sales Rep changed contract phone to PAYG.

To my surprise its UNLOCKED and 3 vodafone apps. 2 can be disabled and 1 can be deleted.

Many samsung apps can be disabled as well. Fabulous screen

Thanks OP

Yes same model GT-i9195 and 4.4.2. Tried three network sim first which worked and then tried vodafone sim, Dont know whether that made any difference. Likely mine is just unlocked.

Been looking for a phone with a decent camera and flash but not much around so far this Xmas

I have just had a chat session with a Vodaphone rep who said the phone is locked to Vodaphone and will cost £20 to unlock

I have received the on I ordered today. It's for one of my friends, who asked me to order it for him, so I did. He is picking it up tonight about 8 so we'll fire it up and see if it's locked/unlocked. will update this post:)

Edit: If it matters, its black colour

Was hoping to unlock cheaply. Mine hast arrived yet. I'm currently with three so thought voda might match the three sim only deal but they couldn't so sticking with three.

Very pleased with the deal though, been an iphone user for far too long and it's costing too much to get the latest handset so decided to stay a year or two behind to save money. This time next year I'll upgrade ps3 to ps4!!X)

speaking of the unlock, its 8.40 on ebay but there is a make offer button. I tried 7.50 and offer was accepted straightaway. Might be worth putting in 7 pounds to see if it also gets accepted, every litre helps:)

Code ordered about 8pm and received 11pm same evening. Worked fine first time:)

Also used this guy earlier to unlock s5 and even though i had to wait slightly longer (about 12-13hrs), code still worked spot on:)

The only "Make an offer " I can see is £8.35 (not £8.40) from a seller with 3847 sales - is that the one ?

I ordered online and skipped the sim part.

Ordered mine on sunday and got an Email saying order received wait for confirmation. No confirmation or dispatch notice as yet. Hopefully they don't cancel my order, I was expecting it to be dispatched today at the latest.
