Found this on the virgin website.
If you calculate this by the current iPhone Prices it'll be working out at a fairly decent price.

For example-

£1368 - £700 (price of an iPhone 8 currently) = £668
£668 / 36 Months = £18.56 for the sim itself.

After shopping around, that's a fairly good deal for a new phone!


There is also a 'Refer a Friend for a Cash Bonus' Not too sure how reliable it is, as never used - but could have a friend refer it to you and try get a bit more cash back.

So chip! I buy two or three...
I didn't even know you could get 36 month contracts. Not a chance I'd have one anyway. It's not a bad deal but I think once the android fanboys come out in their droves this'll go veryyyy cold.
Spending that kind of money should at the very least get you the latest every year. 24 months was bad enough, 36 is worse.
Someone told me virgin mobile data speed is limited to 40mb .i.e. slower than 3G. So be careful to check what data speed you get otherwise it can be a very expensive contact . Lots of data in your account but cannot download even webpage fast when you need it.
36 months!?!? ITS A PHONE, not a car :-( after 18 months, surely you'd be thinking this is quickly becoming old, especially as it'll feel old once the X is released a month later. The idea of paying in 3 years time still is madness surely??

I know a good handful of people who use the same phone they did 3 years ago because really what else do you need in a phone? You want it to call, text, Internet, camera and maybe a few other small things like games. Having this phone would achieve this similar to older phones from many years ago like the Samsung galaxy S5 or an equivalent.

Similar to a car, you can go buy the nicest cars and all but 3 years down the line you'll still have the older cars going strong doing what it was meant to do.


What I am trying to get at is Buying the latest gadgets isn't the best thing to probably do due to the depreciation of it but if you're going to to do it you may as well get bang for your buck and fully utilise it for that time instead of buying that other brand new phone 18 months down the line which is another 600 odd plus the sim costs but it does purely come down to the person.
ice cold!

Maybe if bought Iphone X , you could keep it for 3 years. Iphone 8 is just rehash of the old iphone.
Heat for having balls to post it:o
My gob is smacked. This is 2017 kids!
Voted hot doesn’t seem bad for 40GB.
How do crapple buyers manage with 36 month contracts when crapple bring out a new whyphone every 12 months?
Proof positive that Apple fans are mentally unwell.
I'm not entirely sure who would want to buy this deal, if you can call it a deal ! True Apple followers will always want the latest Apple device on the market, regardless of the price and will know that within 2 years Apple will have released 2 if not more updated versions of iPhones. . So why on earth would they want to tie themselves down to a 36 month contract.
This phone beats anything from Samsung but surely better to buy the phone on Apple credit and get the sim separately rather than tie into a 36 month contract

I know loads of people still using iphone 6 and 5's, since I don't think it's that bad a deal. In fact, this would be ideal for my wife, and the 8+ with 1.2GBP data at £33 seems perfect for her.
£115 cash back on topcashback as well.

Because you can hand them onto other members of your family later. I always get my wife's cast off phones.

Take control man!

Being serious though, that’s all well and good when the contract if over and you take out a new one, but in this instance it would still have a year to go over a standard 24m one.

Haven't you just contradicted your own deal?
Correct, people just want those main features, so why wouldn't you just buy a used iPhone 7 (with warranty) for about half the price with the freedom of a 12 month only sim.
coldest deal ever

Because currently a brand new iPhone 7 is around 550. A whole 150 for the next generation isn't the worst. I'm posting a deal as you'd struggle to find something similar for something that just came out today.

Again it just depends on the type of person. I'm an android user and have been for many years but I found this a rather steal
Had iPhones over the years and I like iOS but my last iPhone 6S plus cost £900, the battery failed at 14 months and then completely died at 2 years (logic board failure)
So for me I'd have to buy a 256gb version to restore my photos and data, this is a major deal-breaker for me as I don't want to be shelling out again in 2 years when that fail, lost faith in Apple. Ordered a Note 8 straight after watching apple event.

But IOS gets updates and Android does not . No Oreo / Android 8 for Samsung S8 but IOS 11 for all Apple. Maybe Samsung will bring new phone with Android 8 to make more money.
Not an Apple fan but lets face it the Samsung Galaxy note 8 is £930 (Yes it has the S Pen so does Note 5 at £230 odd on ebay) So while I feel like saying ridiculous Apple money grabbing bast***s, truth is Samsung are no better.

Seems there are a lot of very capable smartphones out there for a third of this price just not the premium (??) badge.

So I am happy to be educated - why has the price of these top flight smartphones gone into orbit, I really don't get it. I'm guessing production costs are similar and I bet either respective finished item costs Apple or Samsung < £150.

I suppose I know the answer 'its the sheep' (either brand) who don't want to risk the latest Chinese 'Itchyfanny' Amoled Smartphone Octa Core with 6gb 64gb 5.7 screen 5000 mah battery for £115. Although lets face it both aforementioned phones are produced in China/Vietnam/Korea.

Ok rant over back to my coffee and moaning about Brexit and the Moody's downgrading........

Not exactly true.
Since my 6S plus died I've also been using a OnePlus 3 and suprised on the updates and how well android has come along.

Also my note 8 had an update on the day I bought it.

Both devices will get O updates.

And as for iOS (I've had iPhones 2009-2017) and found over the past couple of years how sloppy the UX has become, zero customisation and bland design has pushed me away.
