Samsung Galaxy S9

So who is getting the S9?


I currently have the S8+ and I am on the upgrade programme with Samsung.


I am unsure myself as it's not really an upgrade for me as I don't really take pictures

Re: Samsung Galaxy S9

I'm getting the Samsung Galaxy S9 but looking at packages on EE I'm going to be switching to Virgin as its nearly £20 a month cheaper with insurance included. I hate to leave EE as I've been with them for a lot of years but£82 a month is insane compared to £64.

Hi @Steven42000


Welcome to the community. 🙂


There are lots of reasons to stay with EE, and we'd love you to.


Have you spoken to our upgrades team?

Hi @Steven42000,


It's great that you are looking around to get the cheapest deals rather than just accepting <£80+ pcm at first glance.


Samsung Experience Stores are currently doing the S9 and s9+ interest free (with 10% deposit?). You could potentially stick with EE as a SIM only deal and get the phone elsewhere. Carphone warehouse can also upgrade your EE contract so may also have better deals.


I have multiple contracts on both O2 and EE, and out of loyalty I always speak to their retentions team after I have found the cheapest/best suited deal for me just to see if they can match it. They usually do.


I think that's a pretty diplomatic comment 😄


The S9 and S9+ are amazing handsets. If you have any issues with them, speak to EE or pop into your local Samsung Service Centre.


Kind regards,

Re: Samsung Galaxy S9

I was going to upgrade to the S9 but the prices are ridiculous. I found a cheaper option if I was to take out a new line. But it seems EE are declining this when I order it via a 3rd party but are happy to allow it if I order from them directly at almost double the cost. Therefore, after over 15 years with EE (formally T-Mobile) I will be switching to a different network.
