HTC One X, 50 minutes, 250 texts, £180 + £10.50PM 24M @ O2Get this HTC One X deal @ O2

Ok, I know what you’re thinking: that allowance is terrible. However! This is a cheeky way to get the HTC One X a tad cheaper than its SIM free price, and you get to pay in installments. Bonus.

What you do is, see, you drop the data and the monthly tariff goes down to £10.50. Over 24 months, that’s £252, plus the up front cost of £179.99 makes £431.99 total. Huzzah!

Check out our HTC One X specs page.

Free delivery.

Only worth it if you're going to keep the phone for 2 years, otherwise you end up paying off a phone you've already sold.

Though, you could cancel the contract and pay it off without any VAT, meaning you pay it all at once but you pay 20% less than the already lower than SIM free price.

so... what lewis is saying is,,,,

WRONG lewis edit the title... its not 180 + 10.50per month for 50 mins 250 text 100mb...

its for 50 mins 250 text IF you can remove the bolt on on day 1... which may no-longer be possible as they changed their ordering page...

You only have to give 30 days notice, don't you? Which adds a massive £3 to the total cost of the contract.

ahh yes but o2 used to allow on the ordering page to pick having the internet removed... but still the title is wrong and i hate these so called 'downgrade deals' ... they start with these then go for drop the internet downgrade after 12 months to save £5... woo...

Shocking... im always right ;)

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 14:49

Treab, even if you're right and you can't drop the internet for 30 days and had to spend the extra £3, you still only pay £383.99 if you paid off the contract (therefore paid no VAT).

again. good luck with that bro ;) you need to find the right o2 customer support person as its different depending on who you get.

also it would be 386.69 (first month at 13.50)

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 14:58

Contract T&Cs say if you pay it off, you pay no VAT. There's no debating that, O2's CS staff can say what they like, they have no choice in the matter. My bad, I probably added it up wrong :p.

Treab  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:00

cause your always wrong ;) ahh yes but contracts also say you would pay a 'cancellation fee' which would seriously bump that figure.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:05

I have serious doubts that O2 would be able to charge a 20%+ cancellation fee. I'd get someone from O2 to quote, in writing, the cancellation fee before I signed up.

Despite all this, I agree with you, these deals are crap and sound way to dodgy/complicated to be worth saving ~£50 over the space of 2 years.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:06

They're also ONLY worth it if you're keeping the phone for 2 years, otherwise you have odd £10.50 payments coming out of your bank when you don't own the phone and don't use the contract, I wouldn't like that. I prefer owning my phones, not be borrowing them off the network a year after I've already sold it.

yep its only £110 less than you can get it if its sold at rrp. (minus quidco) amazon sells it for 479.99 (but has no risk) and i didnt try to look around... heard it might be 440 at carphone warehouse on launch.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:15

It's already £450 from Three on PAYG, it might come unlocked (as my 1st batch S2 did) or even if it's locked it's only £15 to unlock it so that's a maximum of £465, again totally risk free.

I've heard Phones4U might be selling it for £440 SIM free as well, no confirmation on that though.

Treab  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:17

true but if they do that would be brilliant price. still im happy with my galaxy s2 which is still superior than yours.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:21

Especially considering you could get yourself some Quidco on top of the £440 price tag (I could claim back the £88 VAT too).

Superior to yours, not superior than yours. It would have to be better than yours....god, did you go to school ;)?

Treab  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:23

thats correct... i just missed the comma... should be

which, is still superior, than yours

Bad news, the One X is 500 @ Phones4U and 480 @ Carphone Warehouse, SIM free.

Why is that bad news? im not upgrading :p

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 15:58

Just generally bad news, people will want to buy them as cheaply as possible (people like me...possibly :p).

yeah and for some reason they seem to take huge risks for little reward...

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 5, 2012 at 16:41

£50 over two years...wow you saved less than a penny a day. For once I agree with you, it's easier to just get a contract you actually want, or buy the phone outright and use it on PAYG/SIMO contract.
