Samsung Galaxy S7 32GB (Black/Gold) Perfectly fine O2 Refresh deal £291.99 @ O2

Samsung Galaxy S7 - Perfectly fine

Go for the 500MB deal with £99.99 upfront and £22 monthly
Airtime - £14
Device plan - £8
The phone element of contract is £8/month x 24=£192
plus the £99.99 you paid upfront.
Total - 192 + 99.99 = 291.99

Step by step guide for this deal

1) Follow the get deal button, purchase the £99.99 + £22*24 tariff.

2) Receive your phone and sim card.

3) Put the sim card into your phone and go onto myO2 (app or website) and from there request the unlock code.

4) Call 202 from the same sim card as it will make things much easier, go straight to the I want to leave o2 department or something like that (I think it's thinking of leaving us? Press something) as that will connect you with the right people much quicker.

5) Tell the person you want to pay your device in full and cancel the airtime. They will ask you why, tell them you don't think the airtime is a good value for money, but you want to keep the phone because you think it's an outstanding value for money. They will ask you for card details, you tell those details and that's it, they cancel it for you in about an hour.

6) You own the phone from that point, assumed that you have done this straightaway, there won't be any charges, otherwise you will have to pay as much airtime as you have used.

7) Unlock code will come through in about 2 to 48 hours.

Depends what else your applying for. Onviously you will take an initital hit as you do applying for any type of credit.

Its only positive in the long run as adds a paid in full loan agreement to your history.

It's worth looking at the website to determine if "perfectly fine" is a used condition that's "perfectly fine" by your standards before buying.
Personally, "perfectly fine" sounds like "used, condition C" to me.

my credit rating has been destroyed by O2 refresh errors, currently fighting them to remove a default that never existed

Does anyone know when they refresh the deals on the nearly new phones?
I've been checking the website since the week before Christmas and the same phones have been In Stock and Out of Stock

Oh oO

Heaaaaaaat

Be aware that you may be charged for the full contract upfront and it'll take a month or two to get the refund for the airtime.....so only do it if you can afford this.

Utter nonsense

I got this offer for my S6 a year ago and absolutely no problems at all.

i went for similar deal yesterday on o2 chat which was upgrade £17.50 p/m for new phone, £12 p/m for 3gb of data, unlimited texts & mins, was £50 up front and £36.50 a month but haggled with them lol, hope this helps someone looking to upgrade. Can cancel using o2 refresh and pay 24 x £17.50 = £420 for the phone, £500+ on samsung website

I had one of the perfect phones and it had a chip taken out of the metal and a scuff on the back of it. Not as good as new IMO lol!
Wonder what fine would look like.

​thanks for that :-)

muffboy

​A similar issue happened for me - I paid for the phone, then they added the phone to my account, which was then directed debited from my account as well, so I was charged twice & needed to wait a while for the refund.

Definitely worth warning people this is a possibility.

Utter nonsense



​Happened to me and several others here, not slagging the offer off... but doing this last year took almost £500 out of my account for two months unexpectedly.... I could cover this, some won't be so fortunate and could get into financial trouble because of it.

Thanks op any deals on a silver edge though ? I am looking for one for my partner

Hey also guys if you chat to them online regarding this deal. They give you upto three months free airtime. Works for the edge so should work for this hopefully.
:-) just need to push them for it.
But won't do anything for the device plan price tho

Not negative per se. Just credit searches on application, 2 lines of credit if you go ahead and then both paid off if that's what you do.

It's not bad but it's just how other lenders may interpret it (non profitable debtor)

So really as long as you pay it off straight away there are no credit problems... the problems come with the o2 staff

Almost 300 quid on a year old refurb phone.... really?!

"perfectly fine" lol. Sound like something Del boy would say.

So disappointing to see a hot deal on a phone only to find its an O2 "deal". Who'd risk their credit rating for a phone? Clearly some people.
