Price is good @ £20

However, I've had two and both suffered 'White Screen' without banging them...

can these be easily unlocked.

Hi,

I just order a SIM only £25 per months deal from Vodafone. Silly enough, I put the voucher code FREEICE to get this phone for free.

I am now worried that Quidco (£120 Cashback) might not track my order because of the voucher code. I am now blaming myself.

Does Quidco track the order with free handset in it???

Nice looking phone - Quidco are also offering £5 for PAYG Handsets too making it a possible £15
Heat & Rep added

Nice phone for the price. Have some heat!

As ASDA uses Vodaphones network, does anyone know if my ASDA sim will work in this? PAYG tariff from ASDA is so much cheaper!!!

not 100% sure but i think the voucher has to be on quidco in the first place for them to pay out

Quidco is

£5 for PAYG handset sales (per phone)

It's up to Vodafone... But you gave them a way to not pay you £120 and whatever they pay quidco, if they've any common sense you won't get paid. Could always cancel your order and do it all again.

Asda sims work fine in vodafone locked handsets, ive always used Voda and my parents get my hand me downs who use Asda!

Also BT Mobile sims work in Voda handsets too!

You say BT, or do you mean o2. As I thought Bt sold there network to O2, many years ago.

BT mobile is a virtual provider and does use the Vodafone network as I recall. As you say, they used to own O2, but sold it.

not bad with sim and fone, though all reviews I HAVE READ happen to slate the phone, think I will wait for a better fone for my dad..

Thanks for the review link to Amazon, very helpful.
John.

I have this phone.Biggest problem is poor battery life

My quidco has tracked £45 instead of £120. Shall I wait or cancel the order asap?

I'd cancel, as Quidco payment isn't guaranteed, even if tracked, and the voucher you used may result in nothing, not even the £45. Just check that all's OK to cancel, and that you can re-order etc.

Great deal. Please could anyone tell me if this phone will take an O2 sim???? Thanks ;o)

Very unlikely as I believe it's locked to Vodafone.

I sent several emails and called their customer service with no success.

First of all, they don't reply emails.

secondly, they keep saying wrong department and nothing they can do kinda thing.

Yes it does, I used an Asda simcard in my 533 for ages, until I got a HTC Magic on contract.

I did exactly the same as you. Ordered the £25 sim only deal and put in the code for the free petrol coloured phone, and it's tracked at £45. Loomk closely at your quidco and you'll also see a £1 vodafone transaction has tracked. On the vodafone section of quidco it also says "All sales will initially track at the rate of £1 and will be updated dependant on the contract/tariff upon validation." The £45 quidco amount is also not stated for any of the other vodafone products.

I wouldn't worry too much, if it tracks then it tracks, if it doesn't then don't sweat it. We've both learnt a lesson to read the quidco terms carefully. Also you can't win 'em all, and from our actions, savvy sods like us make enough

Also, I wouldn't cancel and put the transaction through again. You'll be credit checked again and that's not good for your credit history, which I care much more about.

Thanks for the advise. I asked about 10 people on HUKD. Your reply is the best. I am going to keep it despite the cashback issue. I hope they will validate the contract later and correct the amount. Anyway, I should be happy as something is better than nothing.:thumbsup:
