Another O2 Refresh Deal. Potential cost £376.49 for unlocked Z2. Even cheaper if you buy the £100 Sony Xperia Z1 tablet and sell on ebay.

1. Pre-order the Sony Xperia Z2 in Black or Purple through TCB currently paying £151.50, last day for exclusive rate

Tariff Unlimited mins and text, 8GB data £19.99 upfront cost £48 monthly cost ( £20 for phone plan, £28 for airtime plan)

2. Receive phone and unlock (http://www.o2.co.uk/help/phones-and-devices/unlocking-an-o2-mobile-to-use-on-a-different-network#qs)

3, TCB currently paying out on average 2 weeks 3 days, wait for cashback.

4. Call up O2 to pay off phone contract (£480) and cancel airtime plan

Final costs £19.99 upfront + first bill £48 ( £20 for phone plan, £28 for airtime plan) + remaining phone cost (480-20) = £527.99

If you get TCB then 527.99 - 151.50 = £376.49 for unlocked Z2

*********
If you preorder today you can also claim a Sony Xperia Z1 tablet for £100, currently selling for £220ish on ebay. (www.sonymobile.com/O2preorder)

Hard to believe that tcb are paying out in 2 weeks 3 days. If they are then an absolute bargain. Not voting either way

4. Call up O2 to pay off phone contract (£480) and cancel airtime plan



If its a £28 month plan, then why is it £480?

Would it not be £28 x 24 Month Contract? £672?

Only asking as im *DESPERATE* for a Z2 and currently the best price ive found is buying one from CEX for £475 having bought the credit for 85% therefore £400.

Cheaper than eBay and Gumtree + delivered to my door and 12 month warranty.
Also, if you're just paying off the contract, why not get the £38 contract with £50 upfront cost.

Yes £30 more up front, but £10 less contract per month
Anyone know if this will have o2 branding ?

You're paying for the phone part of the contract, once this is paid off you don't have to continue to pay the airtime plan.

The HTC One M8 i ordered a few weeks back has the O2 splash screen when you first turn on the phone. No other O2 branding or marks on the phone. Hopefully the Z2 will be the same.

Did you unlock that one too? Quick? Free? Painless?

Edit, My cashback has tracked but it says estimated payable "13 weeks"

The z2 is a doddle to flash anyway mine is now running generic uk fw and just got the 6 free films Elysium etc fantastic camera

What is like to hold is it bulky
"Tablets delivered 28 days after tablet order."

Question is, would you still qualify for that if you cancel? I guess you would as you're paying for the phone ?

Edit: Anyone know how I can track this order? Can't find anything in My o2.

Ordered!

£157 tracked straight away (13 weeks like everyone else). Got the guy on Chat who gave me a thing to access O2Open which gave another 30% off the line rental aspect.

Then I argued a month free because the contract would be arriving mid month - which he agreed to and applied when I gave him the order number.

The Tablet ive been told is almost guaranteed. You get a form with the delivery and then you send it off. Boom done.

I opted for the collect from store as I may not be in - but ive got a confirmed pick up of the 1st May.

Well chuffed.

Thanks OP. I owe you a drink.
This is by far the best deal I have seen for the Z2. Great find.

Hi Sil, Could you give more details on how you approached the guy on chat about the extra 30% off line rental.
Just been on O2 chat and they say the phone should be in stock around the 1st of May. Fingers crossed.
Mine has tracked at 0.00 that sound right or do I need to submit a claim?
Been looking but can't find any details on the tablet offer. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

Ill have to dig out the link, but its something like o2open.co.uk (or similar) register with your standard email account, state your employer as NHS and it will let you register and give you a code.

Once you have the phone (collecting from store) you text OPEN to 2020 on the new handset and then something happens next and you use the code.

Boom. 30% line rental discount activated.

Dude asked me who I worked for, then he said "What about parents, siblings etc" and I listed all their jobs and he said - yeah, thats great just use your Mums NHS job reference.
i want a z1 compact

as in can i take out a 38 pound per month deal and then just pay off the cost of the phone after a month to cancel the whole deal ?

Yes you can do it with any refresh contract

Yes you can do it with any refresh contract



superb thanks for this ... spoke to the bloke at o2 who confirmed. with the tcb ill get the phone for about 250 all told which is ridiculous considering they are going used on ebay for 300 sheets
That's the beauty of refresh contracts
Don't you have to take a £37+ contract to get 150 tcb? Edit not sure if phone plan counts towards this on not?
If you cancel airtime contract after the 7 day cooling off period (say after 3 weeks when TCB pays out) don't you have to give and pay for 30 days notice?

Not saying it is a bad deal just can't see how to do as well as the op claims.

Yes the phone plan counts it's the total cost ,you usually either just pay the first month or nothing

Show me any listing, current or sold, for a Z2 for £300 and ill buy a hat and eat it.

Cheapest ive seen is £360 on Gumtree. eBay is around the £450-£500 mark.
£157 TCB is now £126 today (and even that lower rate is expiring in 5 days!)

He was referring to a z1 compact
take it these refresh deals are no way a contract and at same time as you pay phone off you can cancel the airtime bit.
