Ok so this seems like a great deal for a very good mid range phone with a flagship camera in it, €399 on the google store at the moment and it will drop to at least €349 on black friday but I cannot see it getting as cheap as €249.

Review here https://www.tomsguide.com/us/google-...view-6452.html

Ok so the deal is only valid if you are porting you number to vodafone, so I just ordered a free sim from eir which I received in a few days, popped in my eir sim to get the verification code then put my 3 sim back in and completed my purchase.

So I picked up a €10 eir sim on the way home from work and took out my current eir sim and replaced it with the new one.
How exactly do I get this verification code? At some stage in the purchase process are you asked for this verification code?
When ordering the phone do I choose the option to say I am a Vodafone customer or not?

When you go to buy it, choose the option moving to Vodafone which will update the price to 250. Next page will ask for your current provider and phone number. There will be a button to send verification number. Took me a few seconds to receive mine. Enter the code and you'll be allowed to continue with the purchase.

Is this locked to Vodafone? I know Google phones are unlocked but some people in work said the Vodafone ones will have Vodafone apps and stuff on it and be locked.
Anybody avail of the offer and let us know?

Ordered mine Tuesday night. Status is currently 'waiting to dispatch'. Someone had posted already that's it's fully unlocked and worked with their 3 sim but I'll be testing it as soon as mine arrives.

No Vodafone apps, and the phone is unlocked.

Their tracking is rubbish. One of my orders said it was still processing, and I got a call from my local Vodafone shop to say it was ready for collection.

Thanks for this. Mine said still processing. I'll give them a call. How long did it take for yours to arrive in store after you ordered?

Mine switched to 'completed - shipped' today so hopefully get it tomorrow or Monday!

The one in the store was the next day, I think. My first order took 9 days to my house. Both were delivered the same day.

Would this be a better buy than a pixel 2xl?

I don't think you'd have any problem regarding already being a customer. You might have a problem using a Lyca SIM, though. I'm not sure they'll accept it.

The easiest way to find out is just try it.
