Sony XPERIA Z £26pm on T-Mobile with 500min, Unl Text, Unl Internet + Free handset @ MobilePhones Direct

62
Found 28th Feb 2013
After the fiasco of the affordable mobile deal i set off looking to beat or mirror it with another provider. I think this is a very good deal for this upcoming Sony XPERIA Z phone on http://www.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk.

For £26pm you get:
+ 500 Minutes
+ Unlimited Texts
+ Unlimited Internet
+ 24 Month Contract
+ Free handset cost


Total 24month = £624

+ £15 Quidco, potentially total cost of £609

I haven't got mine yet. Ordered last week, awaiting credit check feedback apparently which is a ploy to wait for stock.. expecting these numpties to do the same and say I've failed.

Why are 3rd party suppliers such a ball ache!?

Is this better than s3

NO.
There are only two great mobile phones currently on the market: Samsung Galaxy S3 for android fans and iPhone5 for Apple fans.

Poor battery life, no memory expansion, not a bargain.
Google's Nexus 4 offering a clutch of similar features for roughly half the price...

for £250 the best phone you can probably get is a nexus4, but if you want removable battery / sd you're looking at finding an s3 on sale.

Reviews of the company seem ok and they have been trading since 2004. However, i have spent most of the morning trying to call them to check the status of my order and there is no answer!

Still waiting..

had an email back from them that state my application is being processed and that there is a delivery time of 6 days - wait out basically!

Received mine today. You can call this number, it goes to their reception and they pick up instantly: 01635588777. However, don't bother asking to be put through to customer services as they don't pick up, I was on hold for 35 minutes one time. Just ask them to ring you back at reception.

mine is now on pending - preorder!! GRRRR

Took advantage of this offer this afternoon after the shambles that was affordable mobiles. Well post with updates of how the order is progressing.

Ordered mine this morning... Hope it works out!

mine has worked out perfectly, one of the best deals at the minute for this phone. why is this not hotter?!

identical deal was posted with another company, it is a good deal though.

same here =/ ordered on 27th and still under Pending - Pre-Order. at the time of placing an order their website stated "receive within 5 working days" which is tomorrow...

i have had a debit of £2 taken from my account from EE, so i guess i passed the credit check - no change in my order status though.

Just checked my accounts as per the last message and found the following on my online credit card statement, which is the same day as I ordered the phone at mobilesdirect. So hopefully just a case of waiting a couple of days.

28 Feb 13 - EE & T-MOBILE - 01 Mar 13 - 2.00

I think these checks are just initial to see if the account is active. You can always phone t-mobile to see whats up as well ?

got my xperia z on another offer, nice phone but also hugeeee lol

Also, just wanted to ask whether the £15 cashback has appeared on anyone's Quidco account, as mine has yet to show up?

Now in stock

Banned

Still Pending Pre-Order since 28th Feb and No Money has been taken from EE T-Mobile as of yet so we will see as I did order one from Affordable Mobiles website when that deal was on there and I received an email saying they have cancelled my order due to the Network provider...so could be to do with my Credit Checks I hope not!

...and now out of stock!

...and now out of stock!



Really....So what does that mean for people who have pre-ordered it supposedly like me do we have to wait again when they are in stock.

Thanks

The white is in stock it says but the black is now '4 working days'. Hope fully we should get ours (black orders like me) confirmed later for delivery.

Banned

Right ok...as I have actually ordered the White one you see but still in the same predicament as you :(...lets hope we get a confirmation soon and all goes well

Just to let you know it just says Pending - Stock Allocation on my Orders screen...I haven't had any money taken out of my bank account though which is weird as I ordered it on the 28th Feb I would have thought they do the credit checks etc quite quick.
Edited by: "parry88" 5th Mar 2013

yeah think again man, affordablemobiles waited until the last minute to do a credit check. my advice is to phone them and ask to process the credit check now and see what the status of that is, you might have to phone t-mobile or choose another service provider

I ordered on the 25th!! Awaiting a credit check again!! ****

Just this minute I have had a confirmation of my Order being dispatched so hopefully that means all credit checks are done and I will receive it tomorrow fingers crossed all will be ok.

Yes also had an email saying dispatched. Hopefully tomorrow then. (Ordered 26th.)

Anyone else received their phone? My status is supposedly still awaiting pre-order, despite the fact I ordered on the first of the month and immediately had the £2 leave my account. The website says order today for delivery in three days. No comment!

I recieved mines today. not had a chance to switch on yet but it is HUGE lol. i only ordered on sunday morning (3rd) so quite quick

Got my phone - it is lovely!

Can't work out how to go on internet through the data route?

swipe down on the screen and you have two icons next to each other, one is wifi, one is mobile data. You need to setup wifi with your ssid/pass but mobile data should be automatic
