PSA: 25% off Google Nexus 4 phone
This seems to be the phone of choice here. Now it’s even cheaper. Stick a giffgaff sim in and you are free contracts. I presume there is a new one out soon but this is still a great phonePosted 4 years agogravity-slaveMember
How does GiffGaff work then?
It’s all self managed on line and very easy. Like a contract but with no tie in.
Request a SIM, create an account and away you go. Port your own number in if you want. Took 24 hours for me and the Mrs.
You can either load credit and use that, or use credit to buy a ‘goody bag’ that lasts a month. Free calls giffgaff to giffgaff for 3 months then. Goody bags can be set to recur automatically so it’s easy.
If you use a referral link to sign up, you get a fiver credit and so does the referrer. Here’s my link if you want a fiver 😉
Had a Nexus 4 on Giffgaff since November and very happy with both.Posted 4 years agotheflatboyMember

bugger……just signed up to 24mth contract again
There is no way I’m doing anything like that ever again – 18 months is a joke, considering the price I am currently locked in at for a phone that was never worth it to start with. I’m keeping the one I’ve got and going GifGaf when my contract is over. When it eventually needs replacing, buying something like a Nexus and sticking on sim only, no contract with GifGaf literally saves hundreds of pounds.Posted 4 years agogravity-slaveMember
Yeah, glass back the biggest down side.
Broke mine too, right over the camera lens.

I was on my way to the tills there but the dirty ‘tax’ word cropped up.
Whats that likely to be then, anyone know?…could be a deal breaker
er… VAT. I assume you didn’t put a delivery address in which will define the tax you pay. Assuming you’re UK, that’ll be 20%, which is included in the 199 price for the 16Gb version. The total you will pay for a UK delivery is £208.99 including VAT & delivery (an extra 9.99).Posted 4 years agodebaserSubscriber
Thanks for the PSA, just ordered a 16GB to replace my aged and ailing HTC Desire.
A cyanogen ROM and GiffGaff SIM had given the HTC a new lease of life but the tiny onboard memory was getting increasingly frustrating. Might try stripping back the Desire to a GPS only navigation device.
Looking forward to seeing how much quicker and slicker the Nexus is.

VAT is included in the price quoted, but there is a tenner delivery charge.Posted 4 years ago
