What type of deal do I need?

Unless you'd like to buy the device outright starting from £274.00 there are two main types of plan:

These are meant for new customers to the network - for example if you're currently on EE but you'd like to switch to Virgin Mobile. We have 752 new customer contract Samsung Galaxy A8 deals available from EE, O2, Three, Virgin Mobile, Vodafone, iD and Sky Mobile.

If you're an existing EE, O2 or Vodafone customer you can place an upgrade order if you wish to stay with them with no interuptions and keep the same number and SIM. You're usually able to upgrade 30-45 days before the end of your contract depending on your current network. There are 158 of these types of plan currently available.

We've found that in most cases new customer contracts work out to be the best value. Don't worry about losing your number, the process for transferring is simple. It involves contacting your current network and asking for a PAC code - this is then given to your new network to port your old number to your new SIM.

Check out our Contracts Vs Upgrades guide for a full overview of the pros and cons of each.

What contract length should I go for?

The most popular contract length is 24 months and will be suitable for most people. You'll have a fixed allowance of data, minutes and texts over this period and you'll pay the same amount per month. Although you may find there is a small rise each spring in-line with RPI inflation (usually 1-4%).

However some networks are offering more flexible 30 and 36 month contracts. With these you're able to adjust your tariff up and down each month if you find your usage changing. The line rental and device payments are often split too, meaning you can pay the device portion off early and upgrade before the full term if you wish.

How do I order?

After you've made your choice of colour, storage size and the plan that suits you best click the "Get Deal" button on the deal card. You'll be transferred to the retailer's or network's website where you can place your order. Please note that we are a price comparison service - your order is not placed with us, but with the retailer directly.

What if I change my mind after I order?

If your order hasn't been dispatched yet, then you may be able call the customer service number found on the retailer's site and cancel. If you've already received the phone, you have 14 days after taking delivery to request a return - even if you've opened the packaging and used it. It's equivalent to going into a phone shop and trying their display models before you buy, since you weren't able to do this beforehand having bought online. Some networks may opt to offer even longer evaluation periods to make sure you're fully satisfied with their signal coverage.
