[ACT] Nokia 2.2 Telstra Locked $15 @ Target Belconnen

1080

Second poster. Second Nokia 2.2 deal. Don't be gentle cos I couldn't care less. Fire away!

Fresh from my $80-$50 deal that then became $30 in NSW I didn't want my massive ego beaten so just picked up this sucker for $15. Was marked $50 in store. Still at least 4 on shelves along with other discounted phones.
Locked to Telstra network and at the price not worth unlocking.

As always stay safe and enjoy and stuff.

    Great price OP! I'm going to check if my store has some.

    Ya ozbargainers can be brutal.

      That's a sick burn!

    You want us to fire away, well OK, here it comes. Out of ALL the first posters, well you're almost a 1st, finally someone has the the balls to say, I don't care. Everyone knows that when you put up your first post you get a little yellow Learner sign to designate that it is your first post. I am just so tired of people feeling that they need to write " Please be kind…" etc. WE GET IT. It is your first post.

    Sorry for the rant, but hey you asked for it. By the way, thanks and welcome. Good job.

      Always enjoy a read between the posts on the bus :)

      Far from unprecedented, even just within the past three days:-

      3 Jan - First post please be rough.

      2 Jan - First post, be brutal.

        "almost a first"… vs 2 other posts..

        Objection over ruled. omlygombly prefaced comment with almost.

        •  

          He he. Thanks :)

        •  

          Only had to go back three days to find two examples. Just sayin'.

        •  

          omlygombly prefaced comment with almost.

          Sure, and it's still inaccurate by any reasonable measure of 'almost a first', particularly when prefaced with "Out of ALL the first posters" and "finally".

          Not that I'm disagreeing with the general sentiment, and in the past there was a moderator who was offended by "please be nice" :)

    So now I have my Galaxy for personal reputable use, a Telstra $9 job for work use and two of these with different numbers for multiple food/rewards accounts and a cheap Wi-Fi router.

    Is it worth burning through SIMs for new customer rewards? What do you get out of it?

    • +1 vote

      When they give you a free SIM with $10 credit and you combine all the free deals etc I think $180 in value was the BEST I did

    Imagine if everyone did this, we'd be able to actually know how many posts people have made! Almost like, exactly what the profile already does!

        You did say not to be gentle so I figured I'd actually take a chance to remind people the profile post count exists (and any corresponding L & P plates - which you don't have because it's been a while since you've posted).

        Spoofing your location with a rooted Android device to buy cheap fuel using the 7/11 app.

          Wow didn’t know that. I’m spoofing in Pokémon everyday lol

      you don't need root to fake your gps. back in the Sinemia days I used Fake GPS location app with enabled developer tools and that worked a treat.

    •  

      Just use an Android emulator for PC. Unless things have changed in location spoofing for the 7/11 app and it requires a rooted phone. I haven't kept up with that stuff.

        It has changed.

    Yeah some people here on ozbargain can be a******e but the majority of people here are fine :)

    •  

      Actually I'd say most people are fkwits and only people posting on front page deals are humane

  •  

    Does anyone know if deal all stores?

    •  

      I would guess it would be all stores with remaining stock. Probably going to be few and far between as someone posted when they were discounted to $30 not long ago.

  •  

    Yep. No stock at my local :(

    •  

      Did you ask? I grabbed one when they were $30 (spewin'!). They had none on the shelf but it sounded like they had plenty out the back.

      •  

        I gave them a call. The fellow told me they sold out at $30.

    so i went and checked out the local target for the first time ever. they don't seem to sell phones but they're fully stocked with womens underwear and old people.

    Bought this phone from Belconnen for $50 few weeks ago… Noooooooooooooo.

    •  

      You and me both mate. 4 left.

  •  

    Anyone managed to find elsewhere or is this a regional/store only offer?

    •  

      Same question. Any one found this for $15 except OP?

  • -3 votes

    It would be great if any phone under $100 came with specs so we can see whether it is 3G/4G/5G compatible.

    In this case it seems this phone has 4G and VOLTE which is actually impressive. But with only 2GB of RAM and terrible performance reviews, it was probably never worth $15.

    As OP says, it's good for pairing with a cheap SIM for referral rewards, and that's about it.

    •  

      it was probably never worth $15

      Nokia 2.2: Released 2019, June 11

      Never worth $15? I'd strongly disagree.

    •  

      I have the nokia 3 and it's not that bad

    • +1 vote

      Nup. Great value for nerds. I'd buy 6 at $15 each if I could. Harvey Norman are charging $69 for a Telstra Alcatel U3 for comparison. You are free to talk that one down even at the $9 Aus Post sale price.

      •  

        Just went to my local aus post. He has the u3 at $69. fml.

      •  

        Goes back to my original point, the Alcatel U3 is not 4G compatible. But the 3G shutdown is still 3 years away, so at $9 it's a great price for 3 years of life.

        •  

          Except there’s more and more places that can’t do 3G calls any more, you’ll need a 4g phone that can do VoLTE to make/receive calls.

          Found a few towns around Qld when travelling a few months back so I am sure there’s a lot more town around Australia that have zero Telstra 3G now.

          Even around the Gold Coast our family has call problems now when we never used to… unfortunately none of our phones can do VoLTE..

          just noticed this comes with $10 Telstra credit. So this is actually a sim card with a free phone.

          •  

            @zzymurgy: My one says a SIM expiry Sep last year on the box.

  • +1 vote

    yeah… I have the Nokia 3 and it is very usable. This phone has mostly the same specs, with slightly better battery and better rear camera. Bargain at $15 or even $50.

  •  

    This phone looks strikingly similar to the Huawei Y5 Unlocked (2019) which was a bargain at $40 at AusPost in Sep'2020.

    The specs are also quite similar. Check:

    •  

      Think the dual sim aspect made that one appealing.

  •  

    Will an Aldi sim work in it ?

    •  

      not sure but boost does

    •  

      No, unfortunately it doesn’t. And neither does Belong.

      My $30 purchase from the last deal turned into a $55 purchase after stuffing around with Telstra for two weeks to get it unlocked.

  • +1 vote

    FYI $80 to unlock from Telstra from when it was locked (not purchase date). FREE to unlock if 2 years after it was locked from Telstra.

    So if it is old stock then hopefully can unlock free sooner

    Also read the phone is almost impossible to unlock by a third party within the locked period which an unlock would awesome for a root

    •  

      Unless it has changed recently, it's from date of service activation. Went through it with this phone for a relo a few months ago. He went to an Aldi $99 (89 discounted) 12 months plan after paying the $25. Tls unlocking is $80 under 6 months, $25 6-24 months, free thereafter.

      •  

        Yes that happens

        Sometimes you hear a different answers from different people which is annoying

  •  

    Cheap burner 👍.

    Can it hotspot?

  •  

    Stock clearance.

    My local Woolworths had them for months at $65. But just in the past fortnight they've replaced the display copy with a 2.3 model - $125 I think. Which in turn means a 2.4 model is probably due out!

    Has relatively similar 2/16 specs to my 2017 Moto G5 running Oreo but not really worth an upgrade.

        How do you know still 4 left 🤔

        •  

          4 were on the shelf when I got mine. I'm not greedy

          None now cos I went back and all gone

  •  

    got this for $30 in QLD couple of weeks ago slow phone but latest OS need to add a fast SD card. Anyone know if you can get one for $15 in other states now other than ACT? does target allow one to return phones and repurchase at the lower price?

    •  

      "Target has a 60 day return policy" so I would guess yes.

      •  

        just because you can return it doesn't mean they'll be selling them for this price

  •  

    does anyone know if theres any stock left in qld?

    Don't be gentle cos I couldn't care less.

    If Wesfarmers has to shut down Target it is fully their own fault. Products have fallen into a no more market category! Why go to Target when you can buy the same at Kmart cheaper? In this case there are always vultures out there. I am also one of them! A situation Woolworth had to endure with the Masters debacle!

  •  

    Can it do VoLTE?

  •  

    Can you hack it to work on another network?

    •  

      no i hear they are pretty hard to unlock. not sure what bands it has and if it will work on optus network after unlock.? wifes on a telstra plan so might get her to try her luck in a few months to see if they will unlock it for free. btw its free to unlock via telstra after 2 years but best activate sim first. wish i had brought another one now when i got it at $30. dont think ill find stock any where now? seems good value and useable with latest apps after inserting a high speed sd micro card.

  •  

    anyone know if its best to format sd card as part of interal OS or as a stand alone sd card for a better performance? i choose the first option part of os but the available space on sd card has doubled now not sure if its normal or if its a sd card compatibility issue or my 64gb sd evo samsung card is fake. ?
