O2 releases Refresh tariff pricing for Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and HTC One M9
U.K. carrier O2 has started taking pre-orders on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge for its Refresh tariff plan. With Refresh, customers make an upfront payment and pay the phone off over a number of months. Once the old phone is paid off, the consumer can trade it in for credit and apply it toward the purchase of a new handset. The actual monthly price varies depending on the number of minutes, texts and amount of data contracted for.

For example, with unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data, you will pay the equivalent of $56 USD a month for the Samsung Galaxy S6. The same plan with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $71 USD monthly. There is an upfront payment required of $146 USD for the Galaxy S6 edge and it is unclear if the same upfront payment is required for the Galaxy S6.

If the HTC One M9 is the way you want to go, O2 is offering the same unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data for the equivalent of $56 USD each month. There is a one time upfront payment of $74 USD.

O2 customers can reserve any of the three phones by leaving a deposit of $74 USD. Those who do put up the bucks to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge or HTC One M9 from the carrier will receive a free FitBit Charge fitness tracker. Also, keep in mind that these prices are frozen until March 26th when new tariffs will be announced.

Wow....That is a pretty darn good price for the phone and unlimited data, etc.

Us brits are only getting the 64gb model of the edge and no it's not a good deal at all, you end up paying £1252 ($1850) for the phone and that's only with 2gb of data a month.

£52 per month for a 2 year contract is insane, even if it is the best text/data deal... (and by the sound of it, it isn't).

Hold on ! So you guys are talking about a UK network and you don't even bother to mention the price in pounds ?! At least mention the value in pounds in brackets because logic dictates the only audience who would be bothered with this news would be brits. PA might find it hard to believe but there is a world outside US and it doesn't revolve around dollars.

Exactly, as a brit interested in these phones, this page is pretty useless it doesn't even give you the link to the O2 website. Usually PA do list both currencies, maybe Alan F didn't get the memo.

O2 has overpriced again. Better prices will be with another UK carriers... Of course in pounds.

They did it before when a phone had a price announced in Italy, there were no figures in Euros, just the Dollar equivalent. When it's a page about a price in a certain country, they should list the price in that country...

Have I missed something? Why is this in US dollars when it's a UK subject based article?

That's what I was about to say. At least put the dollar conversion in brackets and list the UK price. I shouldn't have to visit another site to get this information.
