Calculated – why the offer is worthwhile

A minimum contract period of 36 months (3 years) is pre-selected on the O2 side. Even if this increases the monthly fee, we recommend to switch to 24 monthsas is common practice with most cell phone contracts – overall you get so much cheaper. Our information relates accordingly to the contract with a minimum term of 24 months. Here is our calculation:

Basic charge (monthly)
49,99 Euro

Co-payment (once, at the beginning of the contract) 1 euro

Connection fee (one-time, at the start of the contract) 39.99 euros

If you calculate the value of the television, you get a monthly price of just under 14.19 euros for the tariff, or around 10 Euroif you take your old cell phone number with you. In return, you get a telephone and SMS flat rate in the German cellular networks and the fixed network as well as 20 GB of data volume including 5G connectivity. That’s a good price, especially if you pocket the bonus for number portability.

Are there any catches?

No catch, but things you should be aware of.

Terminate your mobile phone contract at the earliest possible point in time, preferably immediately after signing the contract. Otherwise you will pay more than necessary if you forget to cancel in time. The television has an excellent picture quality. Please note, however, that this is a device from the A1 series and thus LG’s OLED entry-level model. It has no HDMI 2.1 connections and a maximum frame rate of “only” 50/60 Hz. Films and series look optimal on it and in principle the television is also well suited for games with PS5 / Xbox Series, but the device does not support all of them extended possibilities of the new console generations (High Frame Rates / VRR). We do not recommend purchasing the contract with the intention of reselling the television and thus getting the tariff itself arithmetically cheaper. Because: A 55-inch TV comes in a fairly large package and is a freight forwarder, so reselling it is impractical because it involves high shipping costs.
