Just bought this myself.

Use code ZG426 for £25 off. Starts off at £89.00 plus £3.95 delivery. Voucher brings it down to £67.95 delivered.

Not much else to say really. Good phone great price. O2 don't lock their phones so this should work on any network except 3. Well worth combining with

If you are not honoured for the code they will order you to pay the discount back.
Read the T&C!
So make sure you honoured for the code (i.e. they send it to you) and then order!
Otherwise KEEP OUT!

Because if you read some other threads about such codes for additions and other shop direct company codes. They are very fond of not honouring them or coming back for the money at a later date, if there is any hint that you weren't issued that code directly.

Not too bad if you just do a one off purchase, but some people who have opened credit accounts claim they have had them come after the money for every code they've ever used 'cause they got caught using one they couldn't prove they were entitled too.

Going to get very cold in here ;-)

Just ordered mine, thanks good post

seems a good deal code worked for me to,is the phone any good?????

you only have gone through less than half the story which is apparently an easy part.
rest of the story is that soon you will receive a letter advising you that you were not actually entitled to use the discount code and THEN you need to pay the code discounted money back to them. Its been in their t&c's that additions direct can prosecute you if you dont pay the monies. It was in BBC news in 2007 (correct me if i am wrong with year)....
dont start jumping just because code worked....its only a caution for you....

code not work for me



you're lucky...you inadvertently avoided the hassle had the code worked for you

You are getting owned by the [COLOR="Red"]CODES BRIGADE[/COLOR]
Catalogues like these contact you at a later date (after return time is complete) and say "you weren't honoured for this code so we going to have to charge you full price". Read it in the T&C - you need to have got the code directly from themselves. Last Christmas their were PS3 Games for £51 and their was a £50 off code, so the game for £1 - thats pretty crazy! Then they would say your not honoured and you need to pay full price.
A friend of mine that works in the catalogues company said they let codes like this work for anyone and claim the money back later on.

2.3 Promotional codes are codes that enable customers to obtain benefits … 2.3 Promotional codes are codes that enable customers to obtain benefits such as discounts, free delivery and free gifts. These codes are non-transferable so may only be used by the person to whom they are issued and must only be used in accordance with their terms and conditions of use. If you use a promotional code to claim a promotional benefit, you must first check that it was issued to you and that you are eligible to use it. By using it to claim a promotional benefit you will be confirming that:-(i) you are entitled to use the code;(ii) you meet all the conditions that apply to its use;(iii) you agree to the terms set out below.If, before accepting your order, we find that you are not entitled to use the code or do not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reject your order or alternatively process it without the promotional benefit being applied. If, after accepting your order, we find that you were not entitled to use the code or did not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reverse the benefit that you obtained. If you transacted on a cash basis e.g. by debit or credit card, we may take a further payment, equivalent to the value of the benefit obtained, from the card used. If you transacted on a credit basis, the value of the benefit obtained may be charged to your credit account.

I'd be happy to argue the toss with them later when they asked for another £25, but as quoted in previous post, they simply charge your credit/debit card the money. I perfectly believe the poster who suggested Additions DELIBERATELY allow codes to show working for customers who aren't entitled, hoping to trap people like HUKD'ers into buying something from them that they would otherwise have bought cheaper elsewhere. Scamming lowlife scumbags...

would not buy anything from them......codes are worthless!

To be honest I didn't realise that they did this at additions. However my card expires at the end of this month so it's not an issue for me.

I'm not sure how they can prove that I wasn't entitled to the code. If my card does get debited I'll be on the phone to them.

Even if the code works for you they always take the FULL amount first then consider whether or not they'd like to honour the code afterwards.

Put together with the fact this phone was a tenner cheaper on Additions yesterday then this deal is freezing COLD for me. Sorry.

You may find that the burden of proof is passed onto you, by retailers, who will charge debit and credit cards automatically.

Otherwise they would send a bill and chase you - but with so many payments by cards these days they have most of us under their thumbs.

I'm not damning the deal, but think many users on here would prefer to others to know of the risks upfront. That said I used a code last week for the new Littlewoods, whatever they're called, and Littlewoods have probably been the worst offender for this charge back trick. I hope you, I and any others never get to feel the pain from this.

Some people use those new prepay debit cards as a way to make it harder for additional charges to be added. I don't know whether many people like Littlewoods accept them though.

The worst case for someone would be to have used a debit card to have paid, then to be sent overdrawn some time down the road, when an unexpected charge is made to their account by the retailer. Result = overdraft charges and interest etc . Making an initial discount expensive, when it's had to paid back, as well as incurring even more charges.

Hi, I bgt one 2 weeks ago when O2 reduced it from £127 to £77 (bank holiday offer). I also got £20 trade-in for an old phone (which didn't even switch on), thus effectively the phone cost me £57.
The phones are however locked to O2!

Are you sure they are locked. I've never heard of O2 locking phones apart from the iPhone.

Yes O2 do lock PAYG phones. I unlocked a W810i bought for my gf from the O2 shop last year using SeTool. The phone was reconditioned too, which quite often come unlocked when bought from other retailers.

Well I tried an Orange & Vodaphone sim in it & they didn't work!

i have a tocco, granted not the lite version

it was easy to unlock, i was on o2, you have to type in a code which resets the phone, google will give you the answer, tutorial on youtube and it does work, all functions on the phone working as should be

Was just looking over my old posts and thought I'd confirm that I got this for £67.95 delivered in the end. No letters from Additions and no issue with the amount they charged me.

chilly in here

added some frost
