HTC One S

Any word on release dates and price plans for the One S?

 

I'm out of contract on 7th April and keen to get the One S then.

 

Thanks.

Re: HTC One S

Good Evening johncolm, 

 

No information on pricing just yet but we'll be happy to call on release date to arrange your upgrade! :smileyhappy:

 

Please follow the instructions in the private message I've just sent and a member of the team will be in touch once we have the handset available. 

You can find your PM inbox here.

 

Best Wishes, 

 

Kay

Re: HTC One S

Other than size what's stopping you getting the One X? I could never get something knowing there was something better at the same time

Re: HTC One S

It would be the difference in price tariffs, The x will surely be a lot more.

I also have a dhd and think that's the limit in terms of size for me.

Re: HTC One S

Fair enough, although I don't think there'll be too much of a difference in price if you go through a 3rd party to get the handset (as well as it not being Vodafone branded)

Other than price, I'm not convinced the quad processor is really necessary; you'll certainly need to carry a charger with you everywhere you go!

Re: HTC One S

Unlikely, I can get over 24hrs as it is now with dual-core. There's no way HTC would release a phone that couldn't deal with day-to-day use

Amazon is listing the X @ £499 and the S @ £439.

They also state 5th April for the releas do you think VF will also coincide?

What would that be in terms of tariffs if you were to guess..?

Any update on this?  The guy in the Vodafone shop thought the price plans were being announced yesterday?  I only ask as there are already some cracking deals online for the One S and One X.

 

Cheers

Re: HTC One S

I'd get it online. Means you get an unbranded handset too so no Vodafone junk :smileyvery-happy:

Re: HTC One S

Hi johncolm,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

We don’t have any prices as yet. I can see that we have your details in preparation for launch and as soon as we have these, we’ll be in touch.

 

Let me take this opportunity to show you how Vodafone like to say thank you; take a look at VIP.

 

 

Cheers

 

Ian

Re: HTC One S

John, what kind of good deals are out there at the mo? Handy to know to use a prep and a comparison whilst I wait on VF...

Re: HTC One S

Are you sure - this is now on their site ready for pre order?

 

Think the tariffs are rather high - they are more so than the iPhone 4S!

 

No date yet announced?

Re: HTC One S

Hi A2a

 

Thanks for your post, you can pre-order the HTC One X online now.

 

However if you wait until after the phone is launched then we can look at what special promotions or packages that we have available for you. :smileywink:

 

I’ve sent you a Private Message with details on how to get in contact with us, once we reach your email we’ll be in touch to discuss this further.

 

You can find your PM inbox here.

 

Thanks

 

Amanda

Re: HTC One S

Spoken to vodafone this morning via...well...the phone! Currently they "can" only offer the pre-order price for the HTC One S and One X...and aren't able to offer any upgrade deals etc.

 

The rationale for this is that the phone is on a different "system".

 

Translation?

 

"We are only going to offer the newly arriving phones at the standard price for a bit, so we can get as many people who are desperate to get the phone on release day as possible to sign up to those tariffs. When thats done, then we start talking about upgrade deals to everyone else"

 

I suppose it makes good commerical sense to try and make as much money as possible on potentially higher tariffs, but somewhat dissapointing for those of us that have been holding fire on an upgrade for this specific release...and now have to wait a bit longer still.

 

Personally, I've requested my PAC code...and if one of the other networks can give me a better offer than these pre-order prices I will probably jump ship.
