Found 2nd Aug 2016
Have been looking for a deal on a new tablet. The new ones of these were out of stock on o2 website but this morning found this refurb deal for about half the price. Always get refurbs from o2 and they are always like new.

At £144 for the device (24 months at £6) think this is a great deal, especially as the Wifi only is selling for £299.

The cheapest option is £11 per month. £6 for device and £5 for airtime. You can buy, pay off device and cancel airtime.

Very cheap good tablet

How do you go about cancelling the airtime, is it straightforward to do?

I am about to do that on another device. You can call or go in store and pay off the device and cancel airtime contract.

​very good deal Just remember to cancel in right order-pay off device, and cancel airtime next day to avoid any o2 mistakes.

If its the same as my phone, you can request the code from the o2 app at any time (I have the option for a phone I have only had a month). Code is emailed within 24hrs

Sorry, I'm being particularly thick this morning. I'm seeing £29.99 up front, plus £21.50 per month (for 24 months)?!

Yeah, that's the one. If you select it, it will give you a breakdown of the device plan and the airtime plan.

Thats the cost if you keep the o2 airtime contract. The device payment on that tariff is £4 per month. Click more details to see that. You need to cancel the airtime contract and pay off device to get that cost.

OP, it might be worth changing the price in the title. It might get you some more heat

Amazing tablet. Paid 200 and thought that was good, great price. Buy one

Does this make voice calls straight from sim or O2 imported model without this feature?

​you did well getting it for £200. This is a bargain for the 4g version.

​when i did my phone, i requested an unlock code online at the time-expecting to pay a small fee, surprisingly they said it would be free, and would receive the code within a couple of days. Code arrived 2 hours later.

do you still have to pay the 1st months airtime though?

Can I cancel the airtime in the store when collecting and pay off the device ? help Thanks

Done !


Thanks for the Deal ,I've added heat as it well deserved. Can you advise if I took a deal on their upfront on a different tab costing 29.99 upfront and then 7.00 monthly with the airtime being 17.50, do you just pay off the tab and cancel the airtime ? The deal States 29.99 upfront 24.50 monthly , but 17.50 is airtime.

This is a good deal, for a great device. I have had my Tab S2 8" 4G from new in Feb, used daily both home and away from home on 4G, faultless device. Screen quality is amazing, under strain (gaming) never really heats up, sd card slot for extra storage, but the 32gb on board is a good starting point anyway, the finger print scanner is far better than previous efforts on the first Tab S devices, the camera is what it is, in good light produces OK shots, but I wouldn't be seen taking photos with a tablet in public anyway, so that is a feature I wouldn't use, but some may do! The sound quality from the on board speakers is ok, considering the svelte nature of the device. I use Bose in ear headphones, when watching/listening to media and there is little to be disappointed with, if anything the extra weight to the bass is levelled purely at the Bose in-ears, but I prefer it that way. All in all, highly recommended.

Yes thats correct. So the cost would be £29.99 + 24 * £7. Dont know which one you are looking at but think there are all on Refresh deals which is when you can do this (pay off tablet and cancel airtime)

i don't know how i feel about this after the iphone SE battle!

(b) If you've paid off your O2 Refresh Device Plan(s) (after 24 months or earlier if you choose to pay off early before the end of the 24 month term), you can either:

Decide to continue with your original Airtime Plan. In these circumstances, the combined Pay Monthly tariff will automatically reduce to reflect just the Airtime Plan tariff, until it is terminated on 30 days' notice in accordance with our Pay Monthly Mobile Agreement; or
Take a new O2 Refresh deal. If you're paying off a Device Plan early we waive the remaining months of your linked Airtime Plan that you haven't used, allowing you to upgrade; or
Terminate your Airtime Plan and Pay Monthly Mobile Agreement. We'll waive the remaining months of your linked Airtime Plan that you haven't used (as required by the Consumer Credit Act 1974), entitling you to terminate so that in these circumstances, your Airtime Plan will be treated as not having any remaining Minimum Period for the purposes of paragraph 8.3 of the Pay Monthly Mobile Agreement.

Yes on both counts, but I got mine from EE.

Thanks, I have checked user manual from O2 web site, says the same too.

Does anyone know if this is the Exynos or Snapdragon version - from the PCAdvisor review:

''Update 13 April 2016: Those holding off buying the Galaxy Tab S2 as they wait for a Tab S3 will be interested to note a refreshed version of the Tab S2 has been spotted running the Snapdragon 652 processor for slightly improved performance and Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box. Check the spec before you buy to see which version you are getting, but with performance already very good and Marshmallow available as an update for the original Tab S2 it shouldn't be a dealbreaker.''

ambiguous re the tarrifs

Good deal, wonder why they're refurbished though? Always worried that they've been returned because of being slow or having faults.
