Looking to buy my wife a new Iphone 7 plus (32gb). Is buying these phones still cheaper (with a £10 PAYG SIM) then getting one on a 24 month contract?

Is John Lewis the best place to get one as it offers 24 month warranty? Can't see any place that I could get cashback from it.

Not looking at buying second hand.

Thanks

Don't you pay interest though?

If you have the money, I prefer buying phone, then sim contract.

Phone + sim contracts tend to be slightly more expensive, but a lot of people do it this way - so don't let me stop you.

Not sure if you have benefits from work or know someone who has - but there are some companies that provide lifestyle benefits to their employees.

Some can get 5-10% off Argos, Currys PC World off, it's a top up card too.

If you could get that, then maybe use Quidco for one of those retailers, you'll probably save £70-90 from the phone.

Then, if you know anyone who works at any network companies, then they can normally offer you some good deals.
For example, I have a friend at Three who can give me something like 8GB data, unlimited calls etc for £13, or if your wife is a heavy user, 30GB, unlimited calls for £16.50.

No it's interest free, I got the plus 64gb and 2 year apple care for £41 a month. If you remove the Apple care it's even cheaper and your able to pay off more or even the whole amount anytime. I'm on the upgrade program so I can trade it in the 7 when the new one is launched or keep it but either way no interest is paid.

0% credit card. But it from Apple. Pay it off in the term suitable to you

well u need compare he 2 e.g. cost of buy on pay as you go + the cost of sim ur going use vs pay monthly cost it may worm out cheaper if u need specific amounts of data mins. to go either way. have u checked o2 refresh that maybe a cheaper option buy buy on contract and paying off almost straight away after of course having phone unlocked and then cancelling the sim side of contract.

Thank you for replying. I can get a BT (EE) one for £10pm with 4gb and unlimited minutes etc which is sufficient.So phone is £719 and 2 years of £10 is £959 over 2 years. Just unsure if you'd get anywhere near to that on a contract. She's currently on O2 contract which expires shortly.
