Nokia Lumia 1020 available on Vodafone; 4G contracts starting from £47

The Lumia 1020 by Nokia is available on Vodafone UK with 4G-ready contracts starting from £47 (no upfront fee for the device itself). The niche Windows Phone caters for mobile phone fans who enjoy taking beautiful shots when out and about. For the rather expensive price tag, you're getting 4G, as well as a high-end Windows Phone with a 4.5-inch HD display.

UK mobile operators are beginning to compete against EE with their own 4G offerings, yet Three UK appear to have the best deal available with free LTE upgrades on existing contracts, with no extra fee. Vodafone is stocking both black and yellow and you're good to go with 4G once it's available in your area. The contract comes with 2GB of data, which isn't as bad as some deals out there.

  • Not bad. Happy for WP friends across the pond
  • It IS bad! I pay £16/mo unlimited everything - free Lumia 925 on 3G. 4G cant be worth two more 3G contracts!
  •  ...
  • Sorry, but price tag is well off the mark. Too expensive and is likely to sell poorly. Wait for 2 months to pick it much cheaper?
  • Yeah ripoff, went with three, got the wireless charger,case, camera dock and tripod.
  • 4G is worth the upgrade but not at £47 a month. What are they thinking?! In 2013, no one should be paying more than £25 for a monthly contract with a decent phone.
  • I'm somewhat puzzled by this. I signed up on Vodafone 4G though Phones 4 U. £44 a month for 8gb, plus an extra 4gb due to a current special offer that Vodafone are running. The phone was free. How is it more expensive going through Vodafone themselves? It's almost like they're trying to drive people to independent stockists. Suits me though, I got an unlocked phone (plus the pre-order bundle and a bluetooth speaker)
  • Erm, actually the mentioned £47pm 4G contract comes with 8gb of data and Spotify...
  • Yeah, that's true, but only until the end of october. Then the extra 4gb is no longer available. Spotify is available on all of the new 4G Vodafone contracts as well. I'll have to see if that's available when ordered through phones 4 u or if it's a Vodafone only deal.
