Freebie – iPad 2 from Vodafone UK

Vodafone Logo

Being a Vodafone customer and a regular user of the Vodafone eForum, I found something last night on the Forum which I thought was to be untrue. iPad 2 3G 16GB available with no upfront cost to existing customers. I couldn’t believe my eyes, that’s a saving of £229!! Well technically it’s a saving of £109 because you will be required to pay an additional £5 a month taking the line rental to £32 per month for 24 months.

Still I dont consider this to be a bad deal, let’s work it out.

Existing customers;

iPad 2 3G 16GB = £0, 2GB monthly data allowance + 1GB Openzone WiFi, £32 per month 24 months = Total £768

New customers;

iPad 2 3G 16GB = £229, 2GB monthly data allowance + 1GB Openzone WiFi, £27 per month 24 months = £648. Total £877

iPad 2 from Apple with separate data plan;

iPad 2 3G 16GB = £499 2GB monthly data allowance + 1GB Openzone WiFi, £15 per month 30 Days based on 24 months = £360 Total = £859

After working this out and taking all options into consideration I decided to go for it, crack of dawn I was on the phone to Vodafone and placing my order. Only downside to this is that you need to wait, due to the high demand and low supply levels to Vodafone (and other carriers) I need to wait for it, Up to 4 weeks!! Oh well, I think I need to sit tight and wait. I’ll let you know when it arrives and how long it took.

Update: It’s arrived, less that 48 hours after ordering it. Thanks Vodafone!

    I had a phone call from Vodafone on Friday offering me the the same thing….happily for me my rooted android HTC HD2 does all I need to – including making phone calls! :)

    I think it is the best deal available considering all networks will require an upfront fee on at ledast £199 for existing customers. The 32GB will cost you £50 as an existing customer. people do the Maths and you will know Vodafone is the way forward.

    Wooo Hooo,…..I placed an order and being cheeky, I placed an order for 2! Yes 2 bad boys are coming my way,….but wait for it, I got one for £32 per month and the second for £26 per month! Happy holidays all :0  And my Ipads are on there way,….
