    Original Deal Link
    Does anyone remember this deal?
    Most of us thought we'd never get it as it must have been an error... I got an email shortly after saying they realise it was a pricing error but they would still honour it and they have been updating me regularly that it was still out of stock.
    Well, got an email yesterday that mine was instore for me to pick up. Walked into a vodafone store today and got it!

    I think you can almost rest assured you'll get it. I kept getting updates every 10 days also until the confirmation one arrived.

    Cool! Glad to hear it... I thought it was a good idea to see just how many people eventually do get it.:D

    Anyone got theirs working with an S8, tried with the adapter included but made the phone too long for it.

    I was on pc, my boyfriend was on his phone, neither of us could order, at least some folk did benefit from the error. Maybe next glitch I will get. I wasn't as bothered as I was when Tesco not honour the Samsung add wash washing machine earlier on in year, they messed up prices on that along with other appliances.

    Got my 2 really surprised.

    Oh, ok. Well, at least you didn't pay for it and i'm sure it's much better than the previous version.

    Tried tracking my order online and it says that the details are invalid?

    I was never able to track mine online as well. It just never worked. The email confirming it was ready to pick up was what i went by...

    Yep I got one and have to say I was very pleasantly surprised they honoured it!

    I was also chuffed it came with a controller included

    If people are having issues getting the controller to connect, I'd suggest fully removing any VR/Oculus software you already have installed and start afresh.

    Once you've removed all the software, put the device back in the headset and you'll start a new install process and the controller should update it's firmware when you pair/link it.

    Oh really?Yours came with a controller?! You lucky sod!! It must have been an error within an error. I think we all simply got the newer version but not the pack with a controller included.

    Lucky! I don't recall anyone else saying they got a controller included...

    Mine came the other day, no controller with it but wasn't expecting that. The free headset is an amazing gesture in itself
