I quite fancy getting an iphone but I still have 6 months left on my current contract. does anyone know what the chances are of Phones4u paying off the rest of my £25/month contract if I take out a 24 month iphone contract?? Also, does anyone have any experience of activating/using/updating their iphone using only ubuntu??

cheers

i was told they dont do this for iphones, my daughter has 11 months left and all they would do was buy her phone off her to put towards cost of the iphone, but nothing for the contract and said even when she only had a few months left they still dont buy out if you want an iphone, her contract is only £15 a month and iphone was £35 a month, but still wouldnt do anything, but never any harm in asking

Your better buying it on payg or second hand and getting it unlocked to use your own sim card in.

its like £450, and personally wouldnt buy 2nd hand, unless from a proper retailer

If I were you I would wait till June/July.. supposedly a new iPhone coming out then, and by then you'll be nearing the upgrade period anyway!

i definately wont buy payg. I had been thinking of just waiting till then, quite fancy getting a new number. Does anyone know if you can change your number when your upgrading. Will the new iphone likely be the same price as the 3gs is now?

Well I certainly don't think £35 x 18mths (24mths in some cases!) plus possibly paying a contributory cost to the handset is the cheapest option nor value for money... Can work out in excess of £1000 for the life of the contract:oops:.

Better off buying separately and getting a sim only deal or not taking a phone from your network provider and get a discount on your line rental instead!

At the moment I'm on T-mobile, with an iPhone (bought for £300) - I have 900mins or 1800texts plus 10,000mins to use on any network after 7pm and on weekends & unlimited internet for £24 a month as I obtained a discount instead... They were initially trying to offer me an iPhone for £100 cost towards the phone and £35 for 600mins and 500texts and unlimited internet - NO THANKS!!!

some predict higher, I'm not sure to be honest, I would have thought contract prices will stay the same, but maybe the phone price will rise.. no one really knows to be honest :p Erm nope you'd probably need to take out a new contract..? Don't quote me on that one thoughh lol!!

Isn't it just a new OS which you download to existing phone?

No at the moment there is just a OS 4 beta out, which yes your right will probably be released around June/July time, however there are a fair few rumours which suggest that apple will be releasing a new iPhone around then..
1) They normally release a iPhone around this time every year
2) AT+T in America have said that none of their employees are allowed to take time off ( e.g. holiday) around June time. This in previous years has indicated that there is going to be a new iPhone. e.g. big release!!

I'm praying for a new iPhone, so I can upgrade from my 2g!!

Phones for you bought me and my bf out of our contracts with 3 ( we both had 10 months left on the contract) and i got an iphone on vodafone for myself and my bf got a nokia n97 mini. They also gave us £300 to pay off the remainder of the bill with 3.
Go in its worth a try!!
