    Mobiles.co.uk iPhone XR 15th Aug 19 at 8:56 PM
    Hi,

    I am currently on a SIM only plan with Vodafone, but would like to upgrade to an iPhone XR 64GB.

    I've done a bit of research and it looks like Mobiles.co.uk is the cheapest if I move to O2.

    £220 upfront, £30 a month, £35 cashback via Quidco - Total cost £905 over the 24 months.

    Has anyone had any experience of using them? I have always gone direct to network before, so am a bit nervous about using a third party.

    Thanks :-)

    They use DPD for their deliveries which is another plus.

    The former. However, both tcb and Quidco can't be trusted to pay up and CPW certainly can't.

    Mobiles.co.uk is just the retailer, your contract is with o2, just the same as if you’d bought the phone in an o2 shop. You can go with whoever you want in the future.

    Thanks for your replies. Think I'm going to give them a go.

    As far as I can see on the Mobiles.co.uk website, this particular deal doesn't involve cashback from them. Would just be the £35 from Quidco, so it's not major if they don't pay out.
