Wouldn't buy anything from phones4u!
Let alone a phone from Orange with no data!

I don't know!

I hope it's an Online 35 tariff, which would give me 1000 texts.
If it's a store tariff, it should be 500 instead.
If its some other esoteric tarff, then who know!

Looks like I might get it tomorrow too...


Did you get yours today? :rolleyes:

No.

My order confirmation was dated 17:01. Mobiles.co.uk say that orders placed before 17:00 will be delivered next day. So strictly speaking I had no right to expect it today. But yesterday their site said it had been despatched so I hoped it would arrive today.

I phoned them up to check, and they said that Royal Mail picked it up at 1pm today so I should get it tomorrow (although Royal Mail's site suggests Monday...)

It's on its way anyway. :)

I ordered this on Wednesday. Got it today and no chance of free web bolt on. Can't switch text to web for the life of the contract as the contract is not with O2, its with CPW/O2. So the real price is £42.50 per month! (with 5 months of £17.50 cashback which you will have to claim very slowly!)... or you could just get it on T-Mobile here:
http://www.mobilepho...b509/p3185.aspx
(700 minutes, Unlimited Text + Unlimited mobile web per month, £35.00 - phone was free earlier on today but is now extra £18.99)

I wish I got it from T-Mobile there, but only found it today! And I can't be bothered to send it back now that my old number has started to be ported

Oh that's annoying. Mine might have to go back then. A few months would have been fine but not 18. Will try my luck but sounds doubtful...

Edit: On second thoughts, the T-Mobile deal would only be £30 less (assuming the cashback works) so maybe I'll keep it...

Nah, on third thoughts it can go back. Not having to mess about with cash back is worth even more that the £30...

Or is O2 a significantly better network than T-Mobile?

Hmmm, seems T-Mobile bans instant messaging while O2 doesn't.

Decisions, decisions...

Boo, that sucks. So the question is, is £42.50 good for unlimited SMS and web?

Indeed it does.

Well, after cashback it works out as about £38 per month overall...

Got my phone this morning.

Can't switch text to web for the life of the contract as the contract is not with O2, its with CPW/O2.

I've been repeatedly told 90 days, so it might be worth trying again...

At the moment, I think I'm gonna stay with O2 rather than cancel and go to T-Mobile.

interested to see how the phone is with text entry (not with stylus), ie ease of use.
also, how you get on with O2 would be impt wrt swappng texts to web or not!

Hmm ordered mine on Wednesday evening (as per my post above), and it didn't arrive until Saturday, so much for next day delivery (also it went to my home home address, not my uni one :rolleyes:! Still a bit miffed you can't change the bolt-on. Might be worth waiting for it to come out on o2 proper, depends on the deals they have I guess.

Ahh, also just had a thought, even if we can change bolt on we would have to give up our cashback for changing the tariff

It's not a change of tariff, it's a change of freebie... :rolleyes:

cool - well hope its at least 500 texts, that would do me fine!


Signed up for it on Tuesday and received it today on the 600 mins contract as stated above. After some wrangling i got the unlimited texts chaned over to unlimited web browsing, The contract has 500 texts included anyway.

I called up 02 after receiving it who then told me as i purchased through mobiles.co.uk (Carphone Warehouse) i would need to contact them instead and gave me their number. So i did this and got a recorded message on the carphone warehouse line stating for support on any phones purchased after 2007 on 02 you need to contact 02 on 0870 5860860.

Second time lucky spoke to a helpfull chap who went off and checked with the team and updated my account to unlimited web browsing instead which is due to take effect tomorrow.

Hope you guys are as succesfull. :rolleyes:

Stuart.

Not sure if it made a difference i told them i hadnt taken it out of the box yet because if I couldnt change it i will send it back and cancel the order.

I called o2 on their landline number before opening the sim pack (in case I wanted to return it). I had no problems at all getting it all changed. Checked this morning and it's gone through, just need to wait for my number port now :rolleyes:

Managed to get mine changed too. :rolleyes:

But they really didn't want to. I only succeeded because I had an email from O2 (from before I bought the phone) telling me that I would be able to change it...

Hmm, no such problems here. She had to check something with another department but came straight back and said it was fine! Even confirmed I'd got it through mobiles.co.uk online first.

Same old story I guess, depends who you speak to :/
