It said online chat was not available so I rang them this morning and got through to a South African call centre who sorted the issue in 2 minutes. I've only took this out so I can port my number away from Vodafone, when the 5 X data ends I'll take out a new contract with Vodafone and port back.

chinkzsta

Go on the help page then contact us. Wait for the chat to pop up

fossman

I have had exactly this issue, I rang customer services and got a recorded message saying they were not taking calls and directed me to the website.

chinkzsta

Just note that you will most likely need to speak with customer services for the £10 free credit. You text FREE10 to 21500 for the promo but it says ineligible for the offer. But they do apply £5 automatically after registering. So will need to make a CS call. The 5x data applies a few days after topping up the £10 so be patient

DealJourno

Fingers crossed that you find something before the end of the current contract.

For some reason the L1 has a much brighter screen than the L2. I have an L1. Overall it's a good phone for the money. The screen is really nice but it is a bit sluggish. I intend to get an L4 when there is a deal

apeman69

Giffgaff had Xperia 10 for £99 and 10 Plus for £169 a few weeks ago. Compared to everybody else's prices these were crazy cheap. May be worthwhile keeping an eye out there if not in a rush. With L4 now out I'd expect L2 & L3 to become available at discounted prices.

SquirbyDude

Thanks. I may stick to looking round the Xperia range. They've never let me down in the past. Currently having to use my wife's old Samsung S7 cos I dropped my XZ and cracked the screen, I looked at getting it repaired but might as well just buy another for the price it would cost.

apeman69

Yes. One of my first ones was the (then) mighty Atrix, bought for £200 imported from China. I find Motos now to be average compared to what other manufacturers are offering at the time. Don't think the Macro is anything special compared to many same priced or cheaper handsets and can't see it being a great seller. Since Lenovo took over it's like they're a step behind in terms of VFM. Like the latest release would have been comparable to what the competition put out a few months ago. Saying this, phones are at the point where you're getting pretty much the same overall from most manufacturers for around the same price if you shop around.

SquirbyDude

You tried Motorola at all? I too like Xperias and are generally my phone of choice. However I've see a few good offers on Motorola at the moment and am tempted by either G7, G8 or even One Macro. Don't want to get tied into another contract so have a bit of a budget.

(y) Thanks for the update. Good for people who still have a working phone but if you need a replacement in a hurry then maybe something to bear in mind.

orrc87

Hi just incase you are still thinking about this, I got my UNLOCK code today so overall about 2 weeks wait. Not bad considering the cheap price of handset. Overall would recommend

orrc87

Me too. I mean for the prices they offer the phones I'd probably don't again with knowledge that ot will be a faff to unlock but still the website makes it sound so easy....

blake_7

Good to know. The wording on the EE website made me think it'd be an instant unlock.

orrc87

Thanks mate. I'll keep on at them. Understand it's not really their fault. Although That said they should make it clear on their site that some phones are difficult to unlock currently. Cheers

Hope it's quick. It is a bit of a hassle but worth it for the decent saving.

Thank you. I called them and now will wait.

I called them as am pay monthly customer only and I think that caused issue trying to do it online as my online account was tied to my monthly handset.

Did you see this on a different EE thread? https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/40739802 EE website says you can unlock instantly online but other people had problems and had to call them.

What you expect snapdragon 855, its a new one phone, for some this will be ok also has 21.9 screen ratio very unique, if you ever used a 21.9 screen you won't go back to 18.9 I've had the Xperia 1 since June 2019 and i absolutely love the screen and ratio.

D_Gibbs

For the money, that's decent. Particularly interested in the screen and triple camera which look good.

This or the Moto G8 PLUS advertised here earlier for £159.99 fro EE including top up

blake_7

No, from the reviews/specs I've seen they have removed it. That's the annoying thing with Lenovo, they often compromise on things you might not notice at first (e.g. NFC, compass, OIS, gorilla glass) to keep price low.

robertfrancis1975

I thought the G8 Plus had OIS?

MR_Psyco

I got my mum the G7 power, she loves that too. I think the G8 Power is on offer on Lenovo's site now.

I'd go note 8t personally, sorry just seen this comment

benchaud

Looks like they have removed the speaker from the offer

rocky1man

@MrSwitch I'm looking to upgrade my wife's phone, she currently has the Honor 9 lite and needs a better camera & battery. Would you go for this, or the Note 8T which Amazon have for £130? Ps I know the Note is only 32gb but not worried as would add an SD card anyway.

benchaud

Does anyone know If the blue color will be in stock soon? Also does anyone know how bright the screen is, I currently have the old model P Smart and the screen is fairly bright though not amazingly so, I purchased Honor 10 lite, (same phone as this) and was very disappointed with the quality of the screen, had a yellow tint, not bright and has been returned, is the new p smart any better?

thunderdog

Well my phone died so I've now got myself one of these after previously getting my kids one each and my mum one. Can't go wrong at this price. Son loves the speaker so looks like I won't be seeing that! In case anyone was wondering, there's no Three splash screen, or indeed any evidence it was bought through Three, which makes me happy. It would have bugged me for sure.

same but i could find any answers there was old methods but those are dead now itunes no good either have you tried it? :(

with EE text Stop Pack to 150 before turning on any data. Then you'll have £10 standard data. It looks as if you can use the credit for iTunes account but it doesn't seem to work which is a shame. If anyone knows what to spend the data on. Even if you could convert it to amazon it would be good. Think its ether playstation networks or gambling websites no good for me

this looks like it charges via a usb port but im not 100% sure micro usb? i think you can turn the EE data pack into credit not sure that trick work, some say it does. @MrSwitch the nokia 105v4 was free but then went to 2.99 now its 4.99 think it will go back down to free again? i got one when was 2.99 i need another one for elderly person also i think the best sim deal is 1pmobile anyone know this network and recommend it? thank you all

Not 5G though

TheTechAuthor

I think the issue is that my parents hate faffing around. And there's a pretty high chance she'd lose her existing PAYG number if she were to switch to a pay monthly deal. At least I can log online while she's self-isolated and pay for a bundle for her every month. Far better than existing PAYG rates with zero hassle or "faffing around" for her to deal with at what is already a stressful time for her.

TheTechAuthor

Yea, but she already has a PAYG sim. I don't think they'd let her upgrade it to pay monthly. No matter, I was able to top it up for her with a £10 bundle for uld mins, texts, and 4GB data. More than enough for her with zero hassle as well.
