Hi there

Was looking for a deal with at least 5GB data and under £30 a month. Cracking deal on Mobiles.co.uk

Use code S8PAYDAY to take £155 off the upfront cost of £240 bringing it down to £85. Gear VR included too. Tried stacking other codes - noluck

Does a status symbal sound the same as the normal symbal?

Heat added I was offered a rentention deal with Vodafone earlier of 8GB unlimited txt and mins and free Spotify for £32.90 a month £10 upfront , but I'd say they deal might just be a shade better in price but not data
No gear VR either

1. Call EE and try to get them to match it.
2. If no luck - Order this deal, get any other network sim only, transfer number there, transfer it the new deal.
Is Grey the same as silver???
Can you unlock this phone straightaway? I'm on o2 and was after this phone, was going to give my phone to my mum and keep the s8 xx

I seem to remember something like 24-48 hours for each transition but normally happens a lot faster.
Has anyone bought of this site before, mobiles.co.uk? Is it reliable? And safe?

Has been for me so far. They are owned by CPW.
CPW? What happens if you have an issue with the phone? Who do you contact for a repair ext? I've seen really good deals on this site for a long time and have avoided buying a phone from it.

How do you know that? Can't find anything stating that? Xx

You contact manufacturer for repairs after 28 days I think. Within 28 days you contact mobiles.co.uk . I only mentioned CPW to imply they are reputable.

They do come unlocked from retailers like that. They don't have separate stock for each provider, just a bunch of unlocked phones.
And last question Do you have insurance? Who with? And I see they offer insurance on their site, have you ever taken it? And have you ever had to use them for repairs?

This. I did and got this same deal but just £50 upfront.
I just got a retention deal from EE - £31.99 a month, no upfront cost and 15GB EE Max plan but sadly no VR or Dex. I did ask for it but I was told No

This deal is probably better though with free Gear VR if 5GB of data is enough. I wish I had seen this before

I pay for a premium bank account which also gives me worldwide travel insurance, phone insurance and breakdown cover. It would probably be cheaper to get everything separately but so far bank's cover that I've used been great.

Contact mobiles.co.uk and they will send you to a CPW branch for repairs. I've done this a few times and they have been excellent, even lending me phones til while mine is fixed. Never had a problem within website.

I see what you mean.

Got one, many thanks xx
After a brief phone call to Voda last month to get the costs down for this phone were;
A: wait until month end pay day deals.
B: wait until sept for the Note 8 launch.

It looks like this is happening, I'm still stuck in contract with them until December on a sim only plan, but can upgrade now...I need this deal, how can I get out cheaply?
Got one thanks, I went for the coral blue.
was waiting to buy the note 8 but realised I don't really want to pay an extra £300. So I got this. Thanks.
Does anybody know the pricing of the data addons on ee. I'm asking because coming from three, different customers have different options. With 5GB, I think I will need to use it sometimes. Thanks

Today every operator has EU roaming included in your monthly price.
Im with 3. What are EE like Never been with them. Tempting deal tho....
Also, can you use the 5gb allowance as a personal hot-spot / tethering both in UK and eu?
Now if anyone can find me a s8 keyboard case for cheapsies, I'd be mighty pleased!

EE is very expensive when it comes to adding additional data later on during the deal. If you believe that 5gb is not enough for you, hold out.

Nope, it'll be samsung generic, unless you go with network exclusevs like silver.
I got this phone a few weeks ago on an EE retention deal. Apart from it having a gorgeous screen and being lightning fast, the camera is it's strongest point for me. We had an S7 in the house and a Huawei P8. The camera on the P8 was far superior to the S7 so I wasn't expecting that much of an upgrade on the S8. But it's truly stunning compared with anything we've had before on a phone. Make good use of the camera/vid if you go for it - you won't be disappointed.
guys as gvb67 said, £31.50 cashback from Top cashback. mine hasn't tracked yet but its worth a shot.
