If you can find it cheaper then please tell me also I know if you get it on contract then you can save more but I don't want to go in a 2 years contract thanks

Good price for unlocked.

Great find, heat from me

Wish I'd seen this yesterday. Good price!

Any idea if this will lock to first sim inserted?

Great thanks!

Great price

well I never.....an apple deal with some heat if people...what's the world coming to

"I posted this deal because I wanted your views on it is it worth the price it also comes with 12 months manufacture warranty for extra peace of mind."

You should get 2 years from Apple as it's brand new/sealed box, therefore once you open/register they'll treat it as a new phone?

Cold just because the ops pathetic plea for no cold votes. Who cares if it goes cold or hot. Cheers for sharing may buy.

There are certain iPhone 7 handsets in the market that lock to first SIMs inserted unless stated unlocked like on this website (CPW iPhones always lock to first network = from experience on iPhone 5/6/7).The question was a genuine one so your "yawn" was not necessary.. try to be more informed and helpful..


The yawn was an expression of "not that question again!" rather than the authenticity of the poster's concern. The common misconception is that it's a widespread practice when in fact it is not - in fact it's only DCP that do this being the only real high-street all-networks retailer out there. This deal is from Smartfonestore, not DCP. The myth is that it's widespread (granted I should have said that) - in the UK it's one retailer.

Yawn, stop feeding misinformation... iPhones from CPW/DSGi and possibly Argos (I can't remember) do lock to the first network they are used on. Only new iPhones sourced from Apple and John Lewis do not. As you cannot confirm the original source of the phones from Smartfonestore you cannot answer the question someone had legitimately asked.

Smartfonestore are likely buying traded-in phones that could've come from anywhere, in fact there's a greater chance of them being from CPW or similar on contract as who would buy it from Apple or JL full-price then trade it in? Not saying it's impossible just unlikely.

Argos don't lock. I've got in front of me that I changed the SIM on two days ago. And one from Very - same thing. And I'm pretty sure SFS doesn't source from from DCP - they channel their phones into their own businesses, even returns are sold as refurbs via outlets like e2save.

I admitted I may have been wrong about Argos but it is very much not a myth and Smartfonestore are not an authorised reseller so you won't be sure it's truly unlocked til you try. It is possible it's fully unlocked but not guaranteed - at the end of the day, most people don't have many network SIMs to try this out. And actually I wasn't trying to have a go, only state it's not a myth.

Only 1 left in stock chaps

Samsung S8 Launch is today. Watch live stream here Samsung S8 Live stream @ 4pm

Lets see what all the hype is about!

Good deal though OP, voted hot!

Apple will only provide one years manufactures warranty is from the date of activation.

Yes I should have qualified "myth" - too strong a word on its own. It's possible it could have gone to SFS having been bought in DCP but they will no doubt appraise the item given the volume of stock they shift. Same goes for the likes of CEX. While we're here we should also remind people that even unlocked by your network, as far as I know, a DCP phone will not accept foreign SIMs. I found that recently with a 5s unlocked by O2 that I took abroad.

Sold Out.

Missed it.

Shame there aren't any flux capacitors around - the Very deal was fantastic too - I snapped up a 64GB SE last week at 340 before the 128GB came out but it had been used so unable to return. That said, I find 128GB a bit unmanageable (in terms of time to back up, risk of losing loads as having more storage discourages frequent backups, etc.). 64GB seems to take an hour as it is!

£600 for a mobile phone. Hahahahaha. Just why? Please tell me it's not because there's an Apple logo on the back.

I find it extraordinary that people will spend this on a phone. Everyone is, metaphorically, now buying Ferraris to go to the supermarket. Or more specifically people are paying a LOT of money to play Candy Crush, answer emails, mindlessly flick through social media streams or watch Netflix. Given that a £150-£200 phone will do that perfectly well, why oh why would you empty your pockets to line those of a tax dodging bunch of ***** like Apple?

Bit of a misnomer really, warranties. I know the Sale of Goods Act 1979 has in part been superceded by Consumer Rights Act 2015, but if you've spent £600 on a phone then you have a right to expect it to last longer than 12 months and a court would agree with you. Granted, that's a lot of aggravation, but it's your right nonetheless..

I spoke to Smartfone store and they said it will be unlocked to all networks if it isn't then you can return it within 10 day no quibble returns policy for a full refund

Apple never give warranty over 2 years they have a limited one year warranty, well you could get applecare which would extended the covergae to 2 years. You can also claim under consumer law if you notify the seller of a fault a item within 2 years (this will not cover accidental damage, or battery related issues). in the case of this phone you would have contact smartfone store to make a consumer law claim. I tend to buy my phones from the apple store as they allow me to claim under consumer law

Was good price at Very. Not sure offer still on

Please remember this site is call hotukdeals - not I can buy somethingelsecheaper.com
If you want an iPhone then this is a great price, if not go elsewhere let people spend their money how they want.

With regards to tax dodging our governments need to sort out the loopholes, but they won't so corporations will exploit them. Cheap £150 phones probably come from China via europe without any VAT been collected so who's dodging tax then.

Bought many phones from smartfone,

Remember all phones from them are second hand, even the ones they claim are brand new.. but they are just used sealed ones no difference

My only concern is if the customer that has sold it to smartfonestore/phonebank reports it as lost or stolen or fails to pay the bill on there contract

Then the device will lose signal and stop working for whoever purchases it. Don't know what happens if this does happen after 60 days

Used them several times no issues. Their communication is poor though so my advice is to call them of you have questions or issues. Sometimes next day means two days but no biggie.

Surely that would be new, because it's not used or second hand really. If I bought a phone and sent it back sealed any retailer would still sell it as brand new.

If you open the seal then the phone is used and second hand whether you use the phone or not because seal is broken and it's not resealable so it gets sold as used

If the seal is intact then it's brand new you can't open a seal and put it back on unless you work for Apple and this phone is new from a reputable company that has been buying and selling phones for over 10 years there's nothing to worry about when you get 12 months warranty from Apple as well

You always run the risk of them being reported stolen and blocked by a network even if they are being sold as "new"

They maybe sealed and sold as new but they have been sold via a network and on someone else's contract

Did anyone buy a brand new IPhone 7 from Smartfone store and get it reported stolen and blocked by a network please reply

This is a legitimate business so it's highly unlikely that would be an issue, and it is was I'm sure they'd sort it for you. Look through all the threads for this business and online reviews, I haven't seen that mentioned once.
