Student discount on O2 accessories too
£25 in argos
To be fair I’ve seen no difference in using this as opposed to the myriad of cheaper ones aimed at Android users for the past few years. I know Apple recommend this and the Mophie one but that’s purely as those companies have paid to partner Apple
Good spot. Had been looking at the 5w one for a higher price. Then saw this one but no way was I paying full price. Ordered this. Thanks 😁
Good to also hear that. Yep!, it's exactly as I also initially stated before as well. :-D But either way, thanx though for your additional timely confirmation regardless ... :-) I'm very sure that your third-party eye's will also prove key in helping other's in that same regard too, so yeh. :-)
Just bought the phone. Can confirm it comes unlocked. Used a Vodaphone sim and EE, both work perfectly.
My moaning about this awful phone obviously wasn't enough to put people off. It's my daily driver and it's dreadful, looking forward to seeing the back of it.

Use multiple drop point postal addresses, then you're good to go ... Use your Mum's postal address, your Dad's postal address (or BOTH), use an Uncle's postal address, an Aunties postal address, your Brother's postal address, your Sister's postal address, as well as ... etc, etc, etc?. (And drop 4 of these off at each 'location'?). :-D Then you're definately good to go. :-)
Same price at Argos for black ones.
Cold, nothing to ground breaking as its £99 on Amazon anyway: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Beats-Dr-Dre-BeatsX-Earphones-Black/dp/B01LW9IKX7/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1530804657&sr=8-1&keywords=BeatsX
Thanks for posting @HarrySmith23100 great first post :)

out of stock
Got mine today - its unlocked! :D
I am interested in this deal, but last time I ordered a like new phone from O2 as a present for my partner, they let me order but then got a text the next day that it wasn't in stock and told me to wait for it to be delivered but they didn't know when. I had to cancel the order and then wait 5 days for the money to be refunded. When speaking to O2 customer service they said it's a common problem with like new phones, they don't always know what stock they actually have.
Great price Terrible phone. Apps won't run properly when installed to SD card (tried several cards) Recharging port became very wobbly after 3 months of light use and then packed up altogether. Within a couple of months it's playing up again. There's a reason it's so cheap! AVOID.
o2 actually has the poorest 4G like 3G land mass, which given they buy the best 3/4G spectrum allocation is nuts, Telefonica Spain just use o2 U.K. as a cash cow. They just bought the best 5G lot of spectrum and the only 4G 2300mhz spectrum up for grabs in the same auction which will bulk up built up areas, think they will heavily do 5G and when that’s in place Telefonica sell o2UK like they wanted to do to Three UK after Three Ireland bought o2 Ireland and Sky o2 Broadband. Telefonica made is crawling in debts, still just under €50 billion, so here’s hoping they plow o2UK profits into 5G instead of head offices debts to sell o2 at a premium (for them debts). Average annual profit is 5billion and it’s debt ten times that. I hope 5G revives o2, my o2 3G coverage early on was excellent and expanding until Telefonica bought o2. I left my contract like a decade ago, got a old Genie payg for the glovebox but that’s as far as I go on o2 - it’s expensive direct and I want inclusive international roaming. Here is hoping 5G really does improve o2 coverage, at home I get 2G, 4G on the street so I’m hoping 2300mhz makes a difference, 100 2300mhz sites were switched on the day o2 won, 1000 to be active by end of year 2018, hopefully I will have indoor 4G o2 as the 2100mhz 3G signal won’t ever improve lol.
My bad auto correct (lol) (lol) (lol) I wish I had 500GB (lol) (lol) (lol)
Thanks for that info didnt know all the technical details, all i knew was o2 4g was definately poor compared to my new virgin line
Virgin gives unlimited and 400GB then 1MBPS speed on Unlimited - £25 for Virgin Media customers
Virgin new deals can be awesome, the 1800mhz 4G coverage is great because a good whack of EEs (dual networked) 2G 1800mhz was reframed to 4G, Virgin not having access to 800mhz 4G EE isn’t much of a issue most places. The EE 2600mhz in built up areas keeps the peddle going along with 2100mhz 3G... the 800 4G signal is exclusive to BT Mobile/EE and 800mhz means VoLTE/4G Calling works - even Plusnet Mobile are treated as a bargain basement like Virgin by EE/BT Group now. Most Virgin customers will get great 4G coverage on 1800/2600mhz just not VoLTE or WiFi Calling.
Get what phone you like but don’t blame the phone because you can’t stop it taking you from the world you live in. Just learn some self control and keep your s6 for years to come. That’s like me blaming my kebab shop for making me fat. I don’t have to go in there (skeptical)
So when my smart phone dies, you think I should pay hundreds of pounds for a smart phone and then not look at it? Makes sense. Think I'll just buy a feature phone and save myself the £700 over two years, then check my emails and Facebook when I get home.
You do realise you don’t have to pick up your phone all the time don’t you? Ffs get some self control drama queen!
Which model would you suggest?
Hot. I bought mine on Tuesday, and got an email yesterday saying it was despatched. I already have a v3 starter kit but wanted an extra thermostat so I'm hoping this will work fine (standalone additional Tado thermostat is c. £90 on Amazon). If it does, big thanks to the OP!
Anyone kind enough to give me a UNiDAYS code please
Yes, process is incredibly poor (especially when ordering more than 2 of an item). O2's online system is shambolic, even Gearbest and the like have superior order processes!
Yup, tried an endless amount of things including different browsers, cards and devices but no dice. It's as if O2 don't want to make sales.
did you click "remove code" on the page? Might have to empty your basket and try again.
Or can it be tricked actually and VoucherCodes won't realise I'm not a new customer? There's an option to upgrade my existing number or add a new account when it redirects me to order... Thinking if it's worth risking or will they say sorry no if they detect I'm not a new user?
I just noticed this is for new customers only :( I'm already with O2...
I don’t use either of them.
Sign up, just like Quidco/Topcash
How do I get the £45 Amazon voucher? I don’t quite understand how VoucherCodes track the order and send it to me. Can someone walk me through it?
Got the phone.. really liked the design.. but it's very slow.. can't believe my 3 year old Moto g is faster than this.. sending it back for refund..
Huawei security risk
Would this phone work with a virgin mobile sim, out of the box? Or is it locked? I have read through the thread and there is no clear answer. There does seem to be an unhealthy obsession with GifGaf, but most of us don't use GifGaf (cheeky)
nice ordered for present.
I had a play last night at home indoors with dimmed lights using the Pixel camera app on my new 8, very impressed.... Final price was £229.49 :) for UK stock (UK charger etc.). Pretty happy with that. Not noticing any of the reported gripes with the fingerprint sensor either at all - think it is quite dependent on how well you record it in first place maybe. If I could just add a tele lens ...
Damn, shame I missed this as it was a good price for an OP6 official case.
Not working for me with Samsung S9 plus case.
Ive just ordered the glass protector.
Not necessarily. The OnePlus cases are cheeper this way than anywhere else.
so still £10 more than everywhere else
64GB might be better value at £209 (in Gold or Rose Gold).
O2 like New "Perfect" most of the time b'new non activated phones with full 1year apple care.
Looking like many months away, and won’t be £189 so has no bearing on this deal.
Probably will be September along with the newer IPhone 9 etc 😁 we will see
And not expected for some time they say.
Well done! Yes updating now. Enjoy!!
Thanks for this! Picked mine up today, really pleased! Add Cambridge Lion Yard to your store list 👌 NB I used my NUS card in store, which gave me the full 10% off when buying handset only. They asked for details of my college/uni at checkout in store. Also managed to avoid the £Top-Up fee too 8) (y)
You've not provided one shred of evidencefor your "facts" from Oneplus to back up your case so what you say is circumstantial, You're pushing it so why should I have to go digging!
Fact, Screen inverted on the 5 and can not be fixed. Grounding can never be fixed it's internal, I experienced it myself whilst charging and getting a shock. You do gong the same on the 2,3,3T,5 5T. Let's see it it appears on the 6 Bluetooth issues still current on the 6 Touch latency has been measured and demonstrated on the 5T so it still on the 5 they have the same screen and software. Oil painting effect is now on the 6 and every knows it's on the 5 and 5T. OP never fix any issue on camera's they just build another device and the focus shifts, hence the 2 release a year strategy. I wonder at times if OP really know what they are doing as they always have the same issues on every device. Feel free to read up on any issue you please.
in your opinion!
Three is 3G, 4G roaming in mainly sister networks I believe, or was. EE roaming is 5 countries, Canada, US, Mexico, AU & NZ, and now only on a 24m phone plan now. o2 has more inclusive roaming networks, and 30 odd £4.99 a day (excludes incoming calls/texts - no charge is made, outgoing activity to U.K. or same country or data makes the daily charge apply). https://3g.co.uk/reviews/feel-at-home-review
Isn't roaming on o2 only using 3G (with the exception of Germany), unlike with EE and Three that allow you to roam 4G?
Includes free netflix for 6 months now as well
Pity you can't get this on the 10 gig SIM only, that would be enough to make me switch I think
Sim swap after 6 months, new sim only and someone see the last 6 months out back home of the original ? Much cheapness. But for for a year AU payg is much better value, UK calls is cheap in most payg AU plans as it’s the head of the empire (mentality) and the time zone means most calls are off peak to U.K. ;)
I got assistant within 24hrs but that was midweek.
I’ve emailed 3 times, all I get is a automated response email. Thanks for the help though.(y)
email@example.com try that
Tried everything , but still no sign.ive been using my Tesco SIM card mainly,but I put the o2 one in a few times sent a text , cleared cache etc
It was right on front page of lounge app for me under featured tab. Scroll down a wee bit and then click on the tab and follow instructions.
picked up a sealed pair on Facebook Marketplace for £100...a much more acceptable price for ME....seem to fit my ears nicely enough...sound quality as expected is not really any better than the free Earpods that come with the phones but its good enough...now I just have to remember to use them
Voted hot. Really harsh on OP. This site does attract some “interesting” people :/
Hard to argue in the face of facts..! Pretty sure HUKD still doesn't allow anyone to alter their votes though.
A lot of negative votes because apple MIGHT have announced earpods 2 at WWDC I have checked and Apple did NOT announce earpods 2 at WWDC 2018 https://marketingland.com/apples-wwdc-2018-keynote-an-overview-of-the-announcements-241485 This is therefore a good deal and perhaps those who voted cold should now vote hot.
These don’t fit in me ears. :( ;( EarPods didn’t. AirPods didn’t. I don’t know what else will? In-ear wired earphones only for me.
The idea is good but its 02. I really can't recommend someone to potentially go through the same hassle to cancel their refresh deal as myself. I was lied to several times and its only when I went through resolver and everything was documented externally, I finally spoke to someone further up the chain instead of a lame CS rep. I had months of unpaid bills put through my door which I refused to pay because at no point had I even inserted their sim card into the phone much less used their services.
No I rather have a monthly payments. So I think its no any chance to get extra "toy"
Now comes with a free Kodak mini 2 printer. Are you able to pay the full cost upfront then cancel the contract when the phone arrives?
Any one know if I order it by other website but i've done upgrade can I redeem this speaker too?
I just bought the OP6 and yeah the camera is a lot better although I did upgrade from the OP3 so you'd expect it to be.
Some stores can be awkward and not allow you to go PAYG without buying a top up. I managed to order on the website to pick up from the same store with no PAYG top up. Worth a try to avoid stupid team members pushing o2 stuff on you
10% off with NUS discount in store on handset only price - no contract, also avoided the PAYG top up fee too 8) (y)
Samsung likes to duplicate all Googles apps with it's own, usually inferior ones, OP's doesn't even come with an OP music player now so you need to add Poweramp, Spotify Strava etc.
The guy in the O2 shop as well as in CPW said it was to do with the " As they put it The Gimmicks along with Samsung's bloatware" i mean what is the point of turning yourself into an Emoji? Might be fun for the youngster's or maybe it's just me being a Grumpy Old Fart but i cant see the point of it. Thing that i am saying is they have them on the phone along with other app's that may never get used, but can not be taken off the phone to free up storage. If i want them on the phone then it's up to me to put them on not be forced to have something on the phone you might never use & using up space.
very interesting about the amount of storage it used any ideas why it uses so much
Thanks for this! Missed the deal but managed to get the 20% off using my Unidays account :)
You're statement is now far clear. I'm not saying buy fake airpods....im just responding to your quote that there were NO other possible options for earbuds without rubber tips.
Why would I want fake airpods... Experience tells me that buying cheap clones isn't worth it... Find me a decent set from as decent manufacturer...
Got mine yesterday but the service from o2 was very poor, had no confirmation email whatsoever had to go online chat to see if the order had gone through. Absolutely chaos
Took mine out of there first spin today. Very comfy, had to amend the EQ as i felt the treble was too high compared to my other headphones so turned it down. Really like them, very comfy and really didn't know they were in my ears. Very pleased with them
No I just used standard nus
Thank you I paid much more than I should due to error made by O2 but thanks to you I got refunded the difference
Got the deal using my NUS Extra card!
Just went to my local O2, tried to buy the phone with my NUS Extra card however they said that because they are a franchise they could not do the discount. Only retail stores do it
@zenwon also which store was this?
