I'm an Android fanboy, but that's just not true. The A13 is more powerful than anything that Androids have. As a whole, they're definitely overpriced, though.

For anyone who has ordered this deal, how long did it take to ship?

Bought a Samsung A40 from Three a few months ago and it's dual-SIM. Came locked to Three but the second SIM slot will work with any network as long as a Three SIM is in the first slot.

They are far and few between on Irish networks.

All my phones have been dual sim (all have been bought sim free online).

Current is Xiaomi Mi9SE DS

I tried to order another phone on the deal and anytime I complete the transaction the discount is removed at the last step

Rang and got transferred to 7 different people the last lad to be fair was fairly helpful and replicated the fault and raised it with the technical people and told me to try again tomorrow

I used to think of vodafone as a premium product i've had more luck with Eir and that says a LOT

Yeah, that's true. A lot of Samsungs seem to be supplied as dual-SIM recently though.

It was a great deal though as it was only €90 (€100 off for porting) + mandatory €20 top-up and then came with €120 bonus credit which I've been able to spend on the Play Store.

Ordered one of these last night, but I have had no confirmation email to say anything about the order, only a marketing preferences email.

Money has gone from my account so hopefully they process it as my current P9 is slowly becoming unusable as battery is terrible, and that's the 2nd battery that's in it...

In my case, tracking never worked, never got a confirmation email (just the email you got) and it showed up after a day.
