The deal is on O2 Refresh, so you can pay off the device part of the monthly subscription which is £5 per month.

after the 14 days cooling off period and then the 30 days notice which takes it close to the pay as you go price

Nice spot, good timing as one of our kids Nexus 4 has started playing up.

This will be my third one of these on "Refresh"

Thanks Leo.8)

I feel its more likely to be more: £ 39.99 upfront + £5 x 24 + First month £22.50= £182.49?

This is an excellent deal

Just a note, Ive had the s5 for 6 months, it needs to be charged every other day, if not every day if your kids nick it in the evenings.

Like most of the newer smartphones then...

Pay as you go is £192 now.

Excellent phone this. I call this the Jeffrey Archer phone because of its spotty back.

cold crap deal

Be warned that O2 have tried billing both my Mother in Law and My sister several times after I tipped them off about the S6 deal last month. In both cases O2 admit that it was their fault.

You may as well spend a touch more for the LG G4. If the PAYG deal was £150, that would be the sweet spot IMO.

How much is the LG G4?

£225 on Voda PAYG. Do a search on here and you will see the deal that's been going around for the last week or so.

Great phone very under rated. I'd take this over the S6 for the removable battery, sd card and water proofing. I really enjoyed taking the phone into the dome at Center Parcs and filming the kids swimming under water and around the pool in general.

Fingers crossed the S7 gets the sd card and water proofing back there's rumours both ways at the moment.

This phone is so similar in specs to my LG G2 except for water proofing and Micro SD card...but I think I'll just wait for something else

​that sold out. No stock anywhere

Nice deal, S5 is a great phone once you stop most of the bloat.

One thing I find odd is that my S5 is still on 5.0. Was there never a OTA update ?
I did get it 2nd hand in CEX, it is unlocked, but has never received any update.

For system updates go to settings then about device and the top item is software updates!you set the frequency of them so maybe yours is turned off????
I love my s5!!even more since i bought the kit to turn it wireless!!

Forget s6 they should just bring the s5 up to date.. Great phone

Cold. You can get a used iPhone 5 for same price. Just kidding it tempted me to buy but will get the next new Samsung. Nice one heated.

Complain and you may get £50 compensation. Took £420 from my wife after cancellation. One email complaint and offered £50 compensation. Cheaper for them than the Ombudsman!

Hi
If you check in a Vodafone store you might be able to pick one up.
I picked one up on Tuesday at the Vodafone store in Doncaster.

I can't find the s5 on PAYG?

You don't give notice to cancel, so you don't pay for a month's airtime. You cancel within the cooling off period and pay off the device. Done it with the S6 deal. I was billed £1.54 for the couple of days my sim was active for. Had to activate it only to unlock the phone

I did exactly the same, worked a treat. Got the 64GB S6 so dont need the SD slot. Shame about the battery and waterproofing but it's a beautiful sturdy phone as a result. My S5 used to twist and creak.

ah i see sorry about that it was my assumption that if you cancel within the 14 days cooling off period you have to return everything including the phone and the contract is cancelled as if you never entered into it, or at least thats what it says in my o2 terms and conditions, guess they changed it

​Curious to know if they ever impact your credit rating. Thanks.

Yes, I did 2 and they rejected a third. My wife did one and then she too was rejected for a second.
Credit failed. Embarassing in a shop. I have no credit issues or debts.

When I asked o2, the credit rating system response was: "Business decision".
It seems they lose money!

I don't think they rejected you because of issues with your credit rating (which you don't have. You have a credit history but not a universal score), but because they saw you cancelled contracts straight away before this new application, so their business decision as they said.

Yes, I agree. They said "business reasons" and would not say anything else.
It can only be for cancelling.

My wife had the same issue, so they link addresses. Oh well, managed to get S6 32GB x2 and 1 x 64GB. Now have to sell unlocked unused 64GB to prevent chidren arguing about who gets the 64GB. They both keep 32GB. All phones unlocked.

Yes, unfortunately they never tell you exactly why they refuse you, but if you don't have issues on your credit file then it can only be that they know they won't make money from you. The airtime part is where they make their money.
