He will not be downloading movies or music etc.

Anyone any idea of who has the best deal or should he stick with his provider?
(Vodafone - €9.99 for 1 Gb......but I hate the idea of him going over & each extra Gb will then cost €20.....scandalous!!!)
Does he not have 3G on his phone ? I just use my phone as a "personal hotspot" whenever I need internet on my Ipad.

Hi. Could anyone of those who have bought please clarify my doubt? The title on the amazon page displays 'Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7 inch Tablet - White (8GB, WiFi, Android 4.0)'. On the same page when you click on the 'See more technical details' under 'Technical Details', it shows 3G option for 'Connectivity' and HSPA to be also present with the device. The customer care are giving inconclusive and different answers each time. I wish to know if the tab has 3G connectivity; if it has a sim slot and could be used for making calls using sim card network, like a mobile phone. I also came across the availability of the same model (P3100) with wifi and 3G, and 16GB internal memory for around 230 euros in some countries.

You can choose to buy this tab with 3g connectivity, go to the link here and just above the price you can check all the available types under "style name"

That is a marketseller price, that is not Amazon's price.

The one with 3G is more than £100 dearer.

The one's mentioned on this thread which are selling for £147 is only the WiFi model.

Does the one with 3G that you have quoted have wifi too. I mean, if it is quoted to have 3G, does it have both 3G and wifi or just 3G alone?

They all have wifi, but only the one labelled 3g has 3g.

cash back query

I purchased 2 of these with Littlewoods with a discount code . Wondering can I claim cash back on both seeing as they are on the same receipt/invoice ? If I can do I put them in together as one claim ?
Also do I put in the full price or the price that I paid after discount?

Anyone else buy two at same time how did you claim back

I'm going to be able to start my claim process on the 29th and was just reviewing the online claim form there. I bought in Sterling from Amazon so was thinking of choosing UK as country of purchase and try and claim the £30 - however once you get to address entry it defaults in the UK as your country and therefore you can't use an Irish Address ( I guess BT11AA could be an option here). Has anyone got this far with a claim yet and could give advice on what to do here? There is a phone number you can ring at point of entering bank details but I gave up after being on hold for around 25 mins.

The other problem I see that could delay a claim is if I settle for the €30 cash back and go down the route of Republic of Ireland as country of purchase. The form then requests you to enter a purchase price in Euros - but my invoice is in Sterling. Should I just enter the euro converted price that hit my Credit Card statement?
