They run off the O2 network and offer easy-to-understand deals like £10 for 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. Giffgaff have also earned a reputation for offering unlimited data for £12 and, if you’ve got an unlocked handset and don’t want to be hooked into a huge contract, they’re definitely worth a gander.
However, they’ve never had their own range of handsets, so you’ve had to go elsewhere to buy your unlocked phone and then buy your giffgaff SIM. That is, until now. We’ve been tracking this story for a while now and recently heard that they were about to launch their range, but today is the day – the giffgaff phone store is here.
Handsets include the Samsung Galaxy S4 for £474, the Sony Xperia Z1 for £530 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for £599. You can also grab a HTC One for £505 or the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini for £323. Don’t worry though, if these high prices are putting you off, you can elect to pay monthly. Have a look at the details below to see how it works out – don’t forget to add on your monthly giffgaff “goodybag” that adds you minutes, texts and data.
The Samsung Galaxy S4, as an example, is £474 out-right or £19.42 monthly. If you choose to pay monthly it’s £50 up-front and then 24 payments of £19.42, or you can try and get it cleared off in just 6 months for £75.51. You can choose to pay a bit more up-front to bring that cost down though, and adjust the amount of monthly payments to suit.. good idea that..
Have a look around the giffgaff phone store to find your ideal phone, payment plan and monthly cost. You’re still free to go and buy a phone off eBay if you want to of course.
