Frustrated: Free Headphones Xperia 1

Hi 

 

It's quite frustrating to find out I pre ordered with EE direct in the UK and I don't get the free headphone??  O2, sky and even EE through carphonewarehouse.... 

 

Surely this should of been open directly through Sony?

It's one of those things though where you should always check beforehand, any of the vendors doing promotions have advertised it quite openly.

Unfortunately EE this time had no pre order bonuses.

@doitcom I'd cancel your order and go for either the Sony e-store offer (very quickly, as they only have 130 headphones on offer) or see if any of the pre-order deals are still available

Thanks.   My EE contract is £47 per month and £30 upfront.  So got a really good deal.  I can also upgrade after a year for free and return the phone.

 

Just the headphones are getting amazing reviews and worth at least £250!   Just find it mad that all carriers offer something apart from EE direct... I thought it would be buy a code and get a code to redeem Slightly frowning Face

It's that an upgrade?  That £47 is with my 20%  off.  I get 10GB (but with my EE broadband I get 20GB extra).    Unlimited video data for Netflix etc 

 

And I can upgrade anytime... 1-6 months I pay £200 and return the phone.

 

6-12 months I pay £100 and return the phone.  

 

12-22 months free upgrade but return the phone.

 

I like to have the latest phone really. Just odd one vendor didn't get the offer. O well.

No, it's a new contract (I've already got my Vodafone PAC code)

Ordered my headphones it kept saying processing on the Sony site I refreshed and tried again later on. When I entered my IMEI it says already redeemed. I am now worried it hasn't gone through properly and I won't receive them. Ive e-mailed Sony support with no reply.
