    Are these unlocked? Or tied to Vodafone network?
    Since December 2021 it is not legal to lock phones to any network in the UK.

    Better deals on eBay
    Take care with eBay. I bought a an iPhone XS Max a few years back. It stopped working after 3 months as the seller had sold an upgrade and then stopped paying his contract (I believe he’d left the country).

    The phone was black listed so couldn’t connect to any network in the UK. I got lucky and managed to get my money back from PayPal but I wouldn’t want to rely on this 100pct.

    Probably Vodaphone left with stock of the last model phone, aren't allowed to sell new stock, so break the seals and then sell them at a discount as 'like new'
    They certainly won't be losing money though even at this discounted price.
    And why couldn't they sell new stock?

    Any promo codes to go with this offer?
    ive looked everywhere but dont think so

    What does “like new” mean?

    What discount is this vs retail?
    This is a valid question IMO. I got a response from Vodafone themselves. They claim they are unwanted returns. So should have had minimal use. 48246901-unvwa.jpg (edited)

    Like new means it’s condition is like new. You can find the retail value of the phone by typing “iPhone Pro Max 128gb” into Google.
    Which means what, precisely? That's it's a customer return, open box? Or that it's been used for a year but looks superficially in good condition?

    A price comparison vs. new, especially since this is now an older model and worth less, would certainly be useful information on a deals website.

    Worth paying a little more (£969) from giffgaff for the 256gb version?
    would make the device more future proof, and if you want to shoot in prores then its a requirement for 4K videos
  8. Avatar
    256 GB at this price and I am in.
    ….everyone is waiting for 13 pro max to be at a better price ...... especially in the 256gb option and higher ….. But because 14 pro max is more expensive it raises the prices of older models ……. Maybe something is going down on Black Friday

    Paid £820 brand new sealed five months ago.
    Now all we need is a deal on a Delorean.

    Makes the 799 offer from 6 months ago feel like a bargain
    Was that for the pro max 128gb
  11. Avatar
    Funny how this was voted cold 2 months ago but now voted hot
    2 months ago giffgaff was cheaper….. now it is more expensive……Maybe you need to send him info that he is more expensive, he will lower the prices

    Like new can literally mean anything from open-never used to the complete refurb so it looks like new.

    In terms of battery life, this is the best iPhone. The newer ones do not beat this either apparently
    Easily get through a full day of hammering. If you don’t use it much, it will last 2 days on a single charge.

    Thank you Voli1984

    All ordered

    I was going to wait until Black Friday - but I don't see prices dropping much more

    I am curious if I can get the £10 back

    Very tempted but I think the pro max is just too big. Hopefully the Pro will come back in stock on giff or voda for Black Friday
    i have been 12 pro max for 2 years. At first it seemed big…. It's perfect now. Pro Max has a better camera, better batteries, Larger screen - more content on the screen…. easier to read and watch. £ 100 difference ……. If there was a price difference, it might be worthwhile to have only Pro versions

    'Like new' in this deal is opened box, never used (zero charge).
  17. Avatar
    It's been around this price for a good while, which is disappointing considering the 14 is out now, albeit in number rather than nature

    No option to buy without a plan & terms say if you don’t remember to top up, your bundle will renew & you’ll pay base plan rates.

    I’m interested to buy but I’m happy on O2. Can I buy & then just not activate sim or do I need to activate & then insta cancel?

    Sorry if these are obvious questions to some. Just don’t want to get stung! (edited)
    I contacted vodafone through live chat and they said it’s fine, just wanted to know why I wouldn’t switch to their network.
  19. Avatar
    Can i just not use the sim at all and put my existing ee pay monthly card straight in and will effectively act as an unlocked phone?

    Cheaper than the 14 plus and better. HEAT. (edited)

    Much cheaper on marketplace,gumtree etc. Got a 13 pro 256gb,in brand new condition and 100% battery,boxed,charging cable etc for £650.
    Yepp Gumtree is the place to go if you want a good dodgy deal or be out of.pocket and no phone. Not worth the hassle

    Mine just arrived pristine.
    Did it come with the original box?

    Would an iPhone 13 series get better mobile reception than my S21 FE? Other than the poor battery life, I find it gets worse reception than my previous Pixel 4a.
    I've always read reviews that praise the iPhones for their signal strength. However I'm surprised that you are getting poorer reception on the S20 FE compared to the Pixel as that also should have a Snapdragon processor and modem. It's the Exynos processors that have poor signal strength AFAIK.
    Edit: it could also be that Samsung work out/ display the signal bars differently but the reception being the same. Do you notice call issues or are you just going off the bars on the screen? (edited)

    Just received mine. I was initially a little worried when I was handed it by the dpd driver as it sounded like the phone might be loose loose inside the parcel. It was actually in a plastic bag inside a small generic cardboard box, so not cradled like an iPhone box although it is pristine, with apple warranty until July 2023 (Vodafone warranty for 12 months too). Lightening cable, sim ejector tool and sim card all in the box. Battery health 100%. As my first iPhone I'm very impressed already. Moved over from a Huawei mate 20 Pro so although it's a little heavier, the screen does not feel huge to me - glad I chose the pro max over the pro!
    I also panicked when I heard it knocking around inside the outer box!!. I’m surprised they don’t put something soft in there to absorb impacts.

    Gold still available but someone is turning off the deal all the time……this is how HUKD works ... .. and I, as a moderator, cannot press available….. Joke 🙈 (edited)
    HotUKDeals being dipsticks again... Bet you could repost the gold.

    What’s so special about this v iPhone 14 max? Same processor etc ?
    I think this phone is far better pick over the 14 max as you can have high refresh rate screen and extra camera and yes they have the same processor
  27. Avatar
    Is the 13 pro max still a good buy at £700-£800? I had a 13 mini for a few days this week and it was just too small for me. Trying to change my S21 FE as the battery life is killing me.
    This is definitely better than 14 max and new pros are way more expensive. I also bought a mini but not liking the size so considering different options as of now.

    Don't seem to be able to checkout with this currently. When I click submit it just does nothing. OOS or servers down?
    Change colour for Gold or Graphite
  29. Avatar
    Has anyone been able to buy this? I can get all the way though to submitting order but it keeps coming up with an error and advised to call. I phoned Vodafone and they cannot see this deal on their end so were unable to help 😩
    Works fine for me. Ordered the 128GB graphite model without any issue.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Been an Android user for years and always wanted to try out an iPhone.

    My previous Samsung phone died unexpectedly, so got myself a Poco F3 as an emergency purchase. Ok phone but has its quirks.

    This was always a budget I had in mind but would have resulted in the entry level models, which carried some compromises (eg 60Hz display).

    Should last me a long time with Apples iOS updates.

    They will probably have been display models.
    Nah that’s not the case.

    Surprising people would spend so much money on a product without the protection of a full warranty
    Apple gives you 1 year warranty. Vodafone gives these phones 1 year warranty. What's the difference? (edited)

    Order 13 Pro last week. Only come with phone and charge cable. The battery is showing 100% health. Very happy
    Was it activated already?
  34. Avatar
    really good price.
    still overall the best smartphone unless you're happy to pay the extra for 14 Pro Max.
  35. Avatar
    paid £10 more than this for a 512gb 13 pro max at launch.
    How ? Where did you brought from please?

    Like new lol, even if it was used for one day, it’s still used.

    How do Vofagobe take payment for this handset and sim? Wondering if it could be paid by direct debit, as Santander give cashback on their current account for telecoms direct debits.... Would make this a better deal for the outlay

    Be Aware This is REFURBISHED IPHONE like new ?the only thing new is the box !!!! (edited)
    I would definitely expect the original box if it’s described as “like new”. Is the phone itself ok?. Mine supposed to arrive on Tuesday but am concerned now!.

    Anyone have any recommendations for insurance ?

    I’m not sure if being ‘like new’ affects coverage (edited)
