All Sim Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Voted hot just for that username lmfao (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
1% cashback at quidco? Nectar points?
Seems as the same price @Argos.co.uk, Any benefits buying from here? Just curious. It's a good price anyways.
Isn't that wallpaper how Nokia used to do their startup animation?
Was on 4GB, 1500 mins and unlimited texts for £10. Three minutes on the phone with them and they switched me onto this deal. Thanks OP :-)
Really good customer service too! Always get through to someone who’s really friendly and helpful. :)
how did you get the discount, £10 for 6gb is best i can do
If you phone up asking for pac code saying you have found a cheaper deal elsewhere they may offer you “ a loyalty discount of 25%. Just be nice to who ever you speak to. Be prepared to tell them what better deal u have found so a little research may be needed. let us know the results!
When did £5 offer come up?would like to get that offer. Currently i am on £7 contract for 2.5 gb
I second that, moved parents and grandparents from Gaff Gaff to the £4 deal Plusnet offered last October and haven't looked back. Yes it's a 30 day contract but the difference in allowances and data speeds are night and day. Plusnet use EE network, rock solid 4G (where we live). I moved myself after O2 refused to let me have 4G data on my legacy SIM only deal but have since moved again to BT mobile (again on EE network) for more data per month. Giff Gaff need to Giff off
iD mobile is a cheap alternative also, which offers Wifi calling for anyone that struggles
GiffGaff was over with years ago when their data speeds became so slow that they became not fit for purpose, and their prices aren't even competitive any more. PlusNet is where it's at these days for cheapskates like me. The whole family have moved from GiffGaff to PlusNet, still paying £5 a month and getting fantastic data speeds with more texts ant minutes than we could ever use.
When their Managing Director tells consumers when questioned over poor speeds that they are helping o2 generate millions in profits to allow them to improve their network and still won’t do anything about the speeds people are getting you know they are only there for one thing. To milk the customer as much as they can get. GG customer are so loyal it’s unbelievable, even when told that by the M.D. they were still praising them only a few of us questioned why we would stay if that’s the case. I would admit before that we didn’t know how slow they were, everyone we knew was on GG. One day someone at work told me they were staying with Virgin and at the time they were getting 3G only and I said you can get 4g and cheaper prices with GG. We did a speed check and I got 2Mb the 3G got 16. From that day we left GG get up to 40 download speeds now and have tried many of the companies. We went back to GG for a month and speeds were the same.
People still use giffgaff?
As long as you're using the data, then that's £60 more a year well spent. If you never go above the 10GB, then you are throwing £60 away. It all depends on your circumstance. I've mentioned in other threads, I have 12GB/pm that works out as £8pm after cashback (was £13pm) from Three. I don't go anywhere near the 12GB. I haven't even seen my usage warning that I set up at 8GB. Three are still doing a similar deal. And it includes all the bells and whistles. So for me, I save £17 per month over this posted deal, and don't miss out. A whopping £204 saving. But again, only because I don't need that data, and that's all I was pointing out. Think if you need the data before buying.
Tbh, looking at other sim only deals out there, EE are offering a 10gb deal for £20 per month. I know which I'd rather have. Being a VM customer I'd rather have 100gb for £25 per month than 10gb for £20.
get someone who have virgin media internet broadband and after 3 month change the contract to your name.
I have 5000 min & ulmt sms and 40GB a month virgin media for £10 a month also Data Rollover. I think its much better deal than this one. and month to month contract. Right?
This level of unintentional but misleading ignorance is what spoils these sorts of forums.
I have this version of the phone, it works great. Only thing is the CPU is slow which is why I upgraded. If you don't mind a slow phone then this is as good as any others in terms of features i.e. the camera on the g3 is better than my nokia 8. Edit: oh and battery life was a lot less. Same capacity but I guess OS optimizations have come very far. G3 is one day use for me, my nokia 8 is 2-3
Yeah, better stick to other brands which never get lost, stolen or destroyed if you're the type who never backs up their important data.
You also had to like with a very old phone. If saving £30 a month allowed you to retire 12 years early. Your house must be the cost of a shed.
had this phone for a year, painfully slow, kept overheating and eventually bootlooped. AVOID!!!
Arrived today. Turns out the description was wrong and it's not the 2018 model. Shame though as apart from the 2 pin Nokia charger it feels so nice. Gonna now keep searching for the 2018
Processor on 2018 is snapdragon 630
Does anyone know how to differentiate between the 2018 and non-2018 models?
Ordered 2018 model on Amazon page
Yes its the 2017 version.
Which is at odds with what they told me, that is that they don't do price-matching or offers for new customers. The prices are what they are and are displayed on the website.
hey op how did you get online to offer you a deal? I just logged online and they said that they can only make offers to new customers for new accounts and not existing customer. For existing customers I need to ring 150 and speak to retentions.
Lol, spoke to about 4 different people on 4 different occasions, but what they offered me was pretty much the prices for sim only deals on their website, ended up cancelling and take the virgin media offer
Did you speak to vodafones retention team, they offered me 30% off their plans when i requested my pac
Only thing that seems to be forgotten when it comes to these deals and why some people can’t get them is that we all have a value rating to that company. You may not be worth offering that deal to if you spend peanuts already. If you spend a bit more or have multiple lines, of course you’ll get a decent deal. Nobody is going to get rewarded for spending £10 a month on a SIMO...
If I flash the international rim will Google Pay/Pokémon Go/Banking Apps still work in the UK?
That sorted that one out then lol.. top marks
How easy is it to flash the rom with UK/European version? Do I need a PC or could it be done on a Mac?
I still have the OnePlus 3 and it's still brilliant. Will be investing in a OnePlus 6 when it comes out :D
The spec of phone like this make iPhone looks stupid. It is unbelievable people want to pay double this price and specs even much inferior.
I've dropped mine, it's rattled with keys and been in my back pocket. I think that there is an awful lot of luck/bad luck that is attributed to a manufacturer.
They drop them. Drop a Chinese budget phone and the screen is fine. Drop a Samsung and it breaks. Try it! Samsung will also refuse to honour a warranty if there is any damage. S6 is sealed. The back came off and cracked. Samsung refused to repair "physical damage." But the back cannot come off on a sealed unit. They settled with me when I filed a claim against them in the small claims court. Always file a claim with MoneyOnline. It appears Samsung willl happily pay £1000 in legal costs to a solicitor and settle rather than honour a warranty.
I don't know what some people do with their phones to break them. My S7 Edge has lived on my mountain bike handlebars in all weathers for many thousands of miles with no hassles.
Not sure why you have used a turd emoji as just because to your knowledge nobody insures ... I have insurance through Barclays tech pack and not only have I registered my phone with them, they are aware it was bought outside UK and are ok with this. They have already replaced an S7 Edge which was also bought from Toby with just a £35 excess ...
None of these will be Nokia 8 specific, this apk can be installed on any phone e.g. Galaxy S9. I changed a few e.g. I don't need to record in 4K so changed to 1080p. Just a case of going through all the settings and see which you prefer. If you are asking which I think are the best, to be honest, I don't know. I go with what sounds fancy and assume it will be better! e.g. in Advanced settings, there are two options HDR+ parameters and HDR+ image quality, I have ramped those up to Super High and 100% but only because I assume those are the best, it could be a case that I am wasting 50% more storage for 1% benefit in image quality
Done this thanks, I see alot of settings though none mention the Nokia 8. Did you change any of these?
Voted hot. Great specs, well built and a sensible price. Gone are the days when I was shelling out for a flagship........5% better for 50% more money.
No that's a new model just being released, can't remember the differences though
Is the 6GB version the same as the Nokia 8 Sirocco then? Or is that a different model again?
It was built in the system as the system updates. So even forcing stop it would start up again. Malware apps picked it up. Tried rooting the phone so I could remove the system app. But no root would work, done that before on other phones.
I was wary so installed Malwarebytes. It picked it up but couldn't remove it as it was a system file, The Rom on cubot.net also had it built in but once it has activated itself there is no way to remove it. I don't know what it was doing, I read somewhere it was sending data to a google server. Here I think
How did you know you had malware? Did another app report that it found some?
I had a cubot once and sent it back. Had malware that tracked login details for apps etc. like Facebook, email, online banking. It’s what’s put me off buying a Chinese brand that’s not regularly sold in the uk.
What was the malware? Or what did it do, just out of curiosity?
Were back on that old chestnut again are we?
No B20 800 4g band, otherwise I would have voted hot
Voted hot, good deal. :)

Welcome to xenophobic HUKD
Ok, so this is cold, while a (non-plus) S8 is hot at around £60 less.....
(lol) I feel like Sam of London (cheeky)
Good to know ;) , thanks for your input. (highfive)
I haven't, thanks (y)
Brand new but I've ended up with a non European model.the 2 year warrants never comes in use as they always factory reset when there's any issues...So insurance is good enough for me. I ended up with a made in Vietnam model..! But all perfect otherwise. It took 2 weeks to come was my only issue!
There is no info on this phone whatsoever :/
Is this new or used? It's not clear from the website or from the post.
Do you work for the company :/
New? European warehouse? No? Then it's a no from me!
heat from me, thanks. I add images to the post just by right clicking on the image and selecting "copy" and then just ctl-v or whatever here to paste it in amongst the normal text and it the site seems to handle it fine.
Cheapest price I've seen for SIM free. Heat added.
good to see EE helping out gangsters who desperately need burner phones ;)
Note 8 and pixel? Are you rich?
Come on Mrswirch..I'm after a note 8 and google pixel 2 xl...make my day!!!
Come on mate, it's £7. This ain't no iPhone x, get it unlocked, probably only take a screwdriver and some chewing gum.
Now it's 1 ;)
BTW i would not use tobydeals or any other china based company but others do and seem to get the stuff in the end but not for me.
Because they ship to their uk office first then on to you read the thread and reviews on the internet (y)
How can you be sure of this? The Shipping info on their website says "All of the products is warehoused and shipped from Hong Kong." So how would this avoid duty/tax?
So what to chose? A2 or redmi 5 china version. There are not enough 636 processors so probably both phones will arrive in same time in uk.
It comes from the uk
