Nexus S: SIM Free Price Cut By Carphone Warehouse UK

By Daniel Chubb - Dec 19, 2010

Anybody in the UK who’s looking to get the Nexus S, running Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread version, is in for a bit of a treat. Carphone Warehouse is now offering the phone SIM free for £429.99 instead of the original price of £549.95. That is a massive saving of almost £120!

The pre-orders in the UK started earlier this month and were at the full price of £549.95. We at PR were left wondering, what happens if you have paid for your phone upon pre-ordering and you paid the full whack?

One of AndroidCommunity.com’s readers had that exact problem and explained what he did to sort it. The reader’s name is Alistair Burns and he spoke to Carphone Warehouse about the predicament. Once the retailer had been contacted they agreed to send a cheque for the difference of £120, no need to return to the shop to sort it out. Very nice!

There has been another change with the Nexus S; the price of the contract to get the device for free. This has gone from being £35 per month to £30 per month, you can read more about it here.

The Nexus S has been a very highly anticipated handset this year, one of the biggest. We have already compared it to an iPhone 4, and asked if you believe it is the best Android device so far? We also brought you the announcement that pre-ordering for the device was available here.
