This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Before I start, I know there are lots of people that hate O2, but if it's not a life and death situation if the network goes down for a few hours, this may suit you.

PLUS ..... YOU MAY ALSO BE ABLE TO CLAIM £42 QUIDCO CASHBACK ON THIS

This is an online deal only.

I can't figure out how they do this, but if you're OK to pay £24/month and keep requesting cashback every quarter from month 6, this phone and O2 contract works out at only £8.50/month over the 24 month contract period. That's a total of £204 over the total period for a phone that you'll pay £250+ for outright, without a contract.

The contract gives you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 12Gb of data monthly (3Gb + a free 9Gb bolt-on for 24 months). You can port your number from another network and there's next working day delivery free of charge

The cashback claim is simple with Mobile Phones Direct (part of AO.com) and I've never had a claim rejected on the 3 contracts I've had with them. Cashback on 24 month contracts is claimed during billing months 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 from the date of connection.

So, you pay £24/month to O2, but the effective cost after cashback is only £8.50/month. I know some people will moan about having to claim cashback, but if you don't want to do this, just take a "normal" monthly contract, or PAYG - I bet it's lot more expensive

Have you manage to find any tempting plan with unlimited data ?
What the heck is a Sony xperia 10 'slim'?

What the heck is a Sony xperia 10 'slim'?



As you'll know, a "normal" mid-range mobile's screen is around about an 18:9 widescreen display these days. The Xperia 10 has a 21:9 ratio making it appear "slim" when viewing it in portrait . The first thing you notice when holding the phone is that it appears to be very slim. It's also not a "thick" phone depth wise, so you could say it really is "slim"

Ahhhhh

I was like "have I missed a model"
You can get it from giffgaff unlocked no contract for £189 Linky winky £8.50 p/m for that contract seems pretty good (although i despise cashback deals like this because I'm a lazy git)
Is the phone unlocked like o2 payg is?
If it was a Sony Xperia 1 I might be tempted. But not this phone.

If you manage to find an Xperia 1 at (effectively) £8.50/month please let me know - I'll probably have 3

A £250(ish) versus £800(ish) handset does tend to be a bit cheaper The same company are doing the Xperia 1 at £29.50 (effective) over 24 months and there's also the £42 Quidco that should be available - this is still cheaper than an outright purchase and it comes with loads of bundled use.

My Quidco-linked purchase has tracked, so let's see if that goes through.

It's been good so far, although this was for my other half. I have an Xperia XZ3 and I'm more than happy with that, but it was (at the time I bought it) their flagship model.

As it's another Android device, she has been getting along fine with it. You can never tell how the battery is performing, as she definitiely suffers from FOMO and the screen is constantly lit all evening. I think she's getting nearly 2 days out of a charge, so I would think that it's doing well.

One point to note is that it feels like a thin phone and I would recommend actually going to a shop and feeling it in your hand, as it's noticably thinner to hold and probably suits smaller hands, rather than baseball mitts That's what we did before buying and it seems to have worked out fine.
