I was looking at this phone. I only have vodafone reception where I live and I like nokia because it is really easy to use. Any other suggestions i don't want to spend more than £70. The £10 vodafone bundle top up works for me.


Don't really get why they released this in the UK. Its got the spec of a £20-30 smartphone.


Agreed, three also do 321 but with the advantage of offering WiFi calling


That's an awful spec phone.


I find 3-2-1 payg from o2 a better choice for low use.

IMS provision files are Network provided, usually preinstalled - had one on my Nokia 6301 with Orange Unique ‘Wi-fi Calling’ over 3G, and with several Blackberries with actual Wi-fi Calling chips until they choose a worse Wi-fi Calling ‘app’. HMD licence the patent/tech from actual Nokia Networks


I bought one from O2 for £39 which is unlocked/unbranded but unfortunately VoLTE isn't working on any network. (fierce) There's an IMS settings menu which is completely blank (no add/options) on O2/Vodafone/Three though interestingly, the menu vanishes when I use my EE SIM. Despite this, calls still fall back to 3G. Hopefully support will be added in a future update.


Had a Z10/30 BlackBerry, loved Blackberries (esp OS7) until BB went Android :/


BlackberryQ10 although to be clear for anyone considering, this is my main handset I use for voice calls, touchscreen smartphone is being used for all the app stuff.


(y) Ohhh what BlackBerry ?

Have a look at its description on the Playstore. Basically it hides the type of traffic between devices whilst tethering,thus not allowing the mobile operator to detect that you are actually tethering,which means no limitations imposed. I paid it full price for the PRO version,totally worth it.


I layman's term, what is it allowing us to do?


This the solution to all of your tethering problems:


I have tried uploading pics of the actual wording on the Three FAQ's about data usage, but for some reason it didn't include them in the comment. Edit - changed to .png and was successful. Click the link and read "What's included" point 2 and "What's Not Included" point 5. This is where I got my information from.


You are not right. Payg will only allow you 9gb abroad. Rolling contract will allow 12gb. Hotspot is not allowed abroad at all. Hope this helps. Source: I work for Three.

Turned up today, WiFi range to the viewfinder device is pretty good and with a SIM on board it acts as a useful battery operated access point for tablets and other devices. The viewfinder app gives a terrible looking preview image but records fine so it could be restrictions due to streaming versus recording separately and the obligatory password change on setup that insists on three out of four of upper/lower/numeric/non alpha is inexplicably selective about characters for no obvious reason (only ,-* for alphanumeric and no capital J for some reason). Decent value even if it was only used as a dashcam and an access point.


My sim came with no data on it? i thought we get 2gb


I initially used a Three data sim, it kept displaying that new firmware was available, but was unable to download the OTA update, changed to the EE data sim included, firmware then downloaded and installed. Can't get live streaming via Facebook Live to work though.


When I installed the cam app , mine said firmware up to date however once I changed the default password for wi fi for the camera, new firmware automatically appeared on screen to update...


I put a o2 sim in and it worked fine but it says the firmware is already up to date i think they have the latest firmware on them already.

Go to Ofcom, complaints process not followed - no one should be forced to use chargeback that’s why the telco industcomplaints process is Ofcom enforced.


They gave me the money back, so I'll leave it for now. If they didn't refund, I would have chargebacked the transaction.


Go to Ofcom


Emailed them and got a call back, even the CEO team are offshore (annoyed) They refused to believe that they were in the wrong, but after I pushed them they offered to refund the charges as a "goodwill gesture". I was also wrongly charged a service charge when there shouldn't have been one. (mad) This was only after I threatened them with a chargeback! They also refused to give any additional compensation, or to refund the amount back to my payment card and close the account, so I'm stuck with £6.49 of credit that I'm probably never going to use (though it'll probably be £0 when I next insert the SIM anyway). They said my usage for 1 of the days was 3kb, and that's why they charged £2! (mad)

3 PAYG 4G Trio Data SIM Pack with 12GB Data £24.99 mymemory
Found 2nd JulFound 2nd Jul
Just got this deal in my inbox from MyMemory and it seems it is quite a good deal for low usage option. Checked it on Three and same deal costs £40

You can use all 12Gb in one splurge say on US, Aus or EU holiday and allows tethering. You can also use it off and on over full year. Ideal for mifi or occasional use out of the house tablet. The 24 Gb one lasts 2 years from first use.


I pay £10 for 100gb data, unlimited calls and texts with feel at home.


Someone bought the knowhow sims for years later and they lost the sims.


Where possible ofcourse, you should do what I do ... Bought 2 4TB Portable Hard Drives in a recent eBay 10% off HUKD Deal that was on here just over 1 Week ago (neither of which I immediately need, as I have more than 3-quarters of an existing 4TB Portable Hard Drive left from 1 bought last Year from Maplins) + a few Day's back bought 4 32GB MicroSD Card's from a recent HUKD on here too (none of which I needed either, having already bought a load of 64GB MicroSD Card's around the Easter Holidays time, from a HUKD that was Posted on here too). Neither of the recent pre-existing, or past HUKD purchases were actually needed, as I still have 1TB, and 2TB Portable Hard Drives from Year's back, as well as a decent handful of 64GB and 32GB MicroSD Card's from a few Year's back also ... Get spares basically (spares of EVERYYYYTHING!), and especially spares of everything, ESPECIALLY moreso when you don't need them?!. Because, come time comes for Tomorrow?, then ... Needless to say, the position I've now put myself in is this, IF no notably decent OR half decent Portable Hard Drive, and/or MicroSD Card Deal's come up on HUKD here for the immediate future (and/or EVEN until nearing this time nest Year?), I'll be more than just comfortably 'sorted' in the knowledge of knowing that I'll go without ... (and will remain the case even if 2 Christmas's pass even?). A bit excessive you may say? (perhaps!). Unnecessary even? (that's neither here nor there - in Today's Digital Age). But either way, there's debatabely a lot to be said, for not putting yourself in a situation of desperation? (so to speak?). Where you're then left in the even more unfavorable predicament of feeling the need/feeling obliged to then just pitch yourself for literally any old thing (be it figuratively, and/or literally?), at the points in time of whenever it then chooses to come? (at a moment of time of literally 'WHENEVER'?). And most likely at 'price points' of whatever the hell then then choose to dictate to you ... (as/when/and whenever?). That to be honest, is never a good position to ever be in (if I'm honest?). Get you 'extras' when not necessary, then you'll then blatantly be in a more favourable/amicable position to dictate your own 'preferred' Deal price points, like?. As opposed to then being one of the few left on the shelf fleeced sheep! (who buy in droves, irrespective of what exorbitant price's the Market chooses to dictate to you, etc ... ) I'm done with being needlessly ripped off for thing's I would have bought anyway, lol. To be fair, I'd rather be the one that dictates my own given price points, of if, as and well I choose/decide to feed it ... I bought 2 of the 24GB, 24 Month Network Three SIM Card's some few Month's shy of 1 Year now, to which I'm yet to make use of - I was awaiting a then pre-existing 12 Month SIM only Deal I'd signed up to just a few Months prior, to do it's 12 Month's cycle FIRST (before then using), but either way, I'll very soon make full use of 1 of those 2 regardless (which was purchased almost 1 Year prior to it's initial need) but as things stand, when I now start making use of 1 of them,, I'll end up having 1 spare to boot anyway. And with that situation in mind, I can blatantly then afford for myself that rarest of rights of passage, eg. the luxury of 'time' ... Yes, given, MAY very well be unfavorably obliged to wait 1 whole Year even? (I doubt it, but in Today's tempestuous 'Market', you can never say never really?). But either way that neither hear not there, because the reality is, it's not exactly like I've put myself in a position where I should now feel the desperate need to 'hurry' ... Everyone's need scales/necessities timeline's, and/or whatever are different, fair enough/true. But either way, that's my advice to you anyway - especially if (where 'forms of communication' are anyway), it's important to you?. As you never truly actually really know for sure (anything ... ) Well, that's how I see it anyway. :-)


These have gone up, i bought the 24gb one for £28 from amazon last year which is close to running out :(

Get what phone you like but don’t blame the phone because you can’t stop it taking you from the world you live in. Just learn some self control and keep your s6 for years to come. That’s like me blaming my kebab shop for making me fat. I don’t have to go in there (skeptical)


So when my smart phone dies, you think I should pay hundreds of pounds for a smart phone and then not look at it? Makes sense. Think I'll just buy a feature phone and save myself the £700 over two years, then check my emails and Facebook when I get home.


You do realise you don’t have to pick up your phone all the time don’t you? Ffs get some self control drama queen!


Which model would you suggest?

In original post you said it was for the summer, the vodafone BVB does auto renew every month as long as you have the correct amount of credit on your sim, or you can cancel the bundle at any time. If you don't have credit it reverts back to PAYG


My phone is currently locked to EE going to get unlocked and have got a 3 sim as going to Florida,I have heard about this deal,will I need a contract or is it a matter of just putting £20 on and picking this add on.Thank


I use a three pay sim or data only sim when I travel to USA and it works perfectly fine for what you would need on holiday speeds are what you get here but acceptable. My contact is with Vodafone so I use this in the EU and in many of the countries you get 4g with Vodafone


I am on Three and go abroad fairly often. Three internet speeds are fairly slow but are fine for social media etc and can upload photos ok. As said previously if travelling to America Three is defo the way to go!


OK so this deal is rubbish and avoid Three at all costs. But both the vodafone and O2 deals are 30 day rollover contracts if I'm not mistaken? Ideally I just want a straight up preloaded data sim...

Nice offer, but it seems you can't use the rocket pack in the EU. UK only Seems you can use abroad, after I read the blurb properly When periodically travelling in our Home From Home Destinations across Europe and beyond (HFH), calls and texts to standard UK landlines, UK mobile numbers, HFH landlines, HFH mobiles as well as data usage, will be charged as in the UK. Usage beyond a Fair Usage Policy may attract other charges. Full details, current list of HFH Destinations, charges, and terms are available at

Its the handset and it’s frequencies dependent in the real world how it preforms but on paper EE lead, Voda beat o2 by 1% but Voda are still spending where o2 are cutting back. The scores and 1% is all 2/3/4G coverage combined on all networks.


EE really needs 4G on as the 900 MHz 2G went to 4G, and thus it is affected by data traffic as the base will throw you off even when there is a signal it will pass you to another less saturated base station which may struggle to connect you, pain in the butt. North of the central belt EE got tons of gov money to build additional base stations for coverage/mobile broadband 800mhz 4G (emergency services contract) seems to be the only freqency requirement but alas EE will be free to add more frequencies as it wants/needs. Remember handsets wont always work beat on all networks if the firmware is configured to the initial networks frequencies. No idea about central belt past the main roads/trains lol but good info for other people, what’s the signal like on all networks 2/3/4G in the surrounding areas of NM ?


On paper or real world most places I have EE and a O2 some O2 is better works in most hospitals. Better in Bradford, Stoke On Trent, Birmingham Chester Manchester Derby so not really sure if you talking about on paper or real usage.


I am in Scotland travel between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Ee in Newton Mearns is absolutely pathetic. O2 is better


o2 in Scotland outside cities used to be top dog, Vodafone definitely is better these days.

The app gets terrible reviews. Think I'll wait until it's below £400 as it's the poor relation of the P20.


Don't know but they seem to fetch around £30 on ebay, not sure why they say its worth £200, You apparently get the set sent in the post within 14 days of purchase of the sim free phone. So if it arrives, it makes the phone £470 if you sell the set.


I remember seeing it as a preorder bonus too. Does anyone know if they're any good?


Hmm probably.


it has just appeared on my page, but doesn't appear in the basket when you add the phone. I think this was a preorder bonus when it was released so may be an error.

Get dealGet deal

Where? Pics or didn't happen.


Checked loacl store which says £799.99 so this really needs expiring and as far as i can see no one has got it at that price.


Bluetooth is still way behind wired earphones when it comes to sound quality. Even my Sony wh1000xm2 using ldac from oreo aren't anywhere near the quality of an equivalently priced, wired set. Usb c might be okay if they start making wires with small built in dac etc, like the lightning audeze cipher cables.


So did anyone figure if this was an actual misprice?!


They're both waterproof. But yes, the S9 Plus does win out in many areas. Overall, it's probably the better phone. But for the difference in price (actual, not RRP) the gap is surprisingly small. The Huawei only has one area where it's significantly better; zoom. Up to 5x lossless using a hybrid of optical zoom and oversampling. 4K video recording is an utter mess on the Huawei. Anyone with any intention of recording 4k video should avoid buying one until/unless it is fixed. I suspect it can't be fixed, as the image stabilization comes from oversampling, rather than hardware.
