You do not need to port your existing number across either.
  • To get the discount you do need to select 'keep existing number' then it will send you a verification code.
  • Enter this, select any date to port across and proceed to checkout.
  • You will receive your phone and a sim card - simply put the sim card in the bin.
If you never activate the VF service the port can not occur.

I was wondering about that. I didn't want to derail the thread, but it would be good to know

Potentially very interested in this but worried it may become a lot less value when the pixel 4a is announced next week.

If I order this, is it unlocked to any network or stuck on Vodafone?

False. The number will port regardless of if you use the new sim that comes with it or not. Your original sim will show no service.

I have bought 7 phones through these deals since before last Christmas.

For 129 its a bargain. Even with 4a coming its still a great price

The TCL phone in the deal is not bad either for 149 as it comes with free earbuds worth 80.

Have bought both of them from Vodafone over the last year. Both are decent. Obviously the Pixel has stock Android and will be better served with updates. It also has a nicer camera.

The P30 lite is a nicer looking phone with a the screen is better looking. It also has more storage, which is expendable.

Both are decent, but personally I'd go for the pixel.

How do you go about availing of the deal so without changing your SIM?

You get another sim from a different service provider.
