Surprised it's back. Is Eir not sending out any more sim cards? I ordered one over a week ago which I never received and others seem to have noted similar.
Was hoping to purchase one as a Christmas present for a parent who's already on Vodafone so yet another example of a company shafting existing customers in the hopes of luring new ones. As a loyal payg Vodafone customer you should be just as entitled to purchase this for €180.

I have received the order confirmation. there was a slight delay on it. time will tell whether the whole thing comes through. getting it as a gift for someone who uses the phone camera a fair bit so will be ideal.

go buy a tescomobile sim for €5?

obviously Vfe want new subscriber revenue, not just revenue that they are already getting and are effectively "buying" that.

called SAC - subscriber acquisition cost.

not really.

cpu reasonably close to it - wouldn't notice really in daily operation unless playing the most intensive games.

camera on the 3a is better than the s8. although the s8 has a decent camera.

I had signed up to be notified when this was available again.

I ordered a free eir sim last Friday and it arrived on Tues this week.
During the order process I was asked to enter the number I'd be porting and they sent a text with a 5 digit code to that number.
Entered that and everything seemed to go through for 179.99

Looking good so far, hope this arrives without hassle.

Just FYI for anyone buying in store I had to buy a SIM with min €20 top up. Between the eir SIM and the Vodafone SIM and the smaller discount in store it cost 259 all in. Still not bad considering the phone is 300 at best elsewhere but not exactly as good as 179! Anyone want 20 quid Vodafone credit for a tenner? Ha!

The salesman told me I should buy credit to go with the phone but I didn't want to and he processed the order without it

Not sure how this works.
