DIY - Apple iPhone 6 64GB, Unlim mins 5GB 4G data O2 @ about £37.50 per month

Found 10th Sep 2014
1. Buy the iPhone 6 64GB from Apple for full price, £619 (click "Go To Deal").

2. Apply for a 0% purchases credit card, e.g. Tesco Purchases Credit Card, Halifax Purchases Credit Card or AMEX BA Credit Card which give you 18-20 months of 0% purchases (as long you pay minimum payment, see below)

3. Get a SIM ONLY deal from here mobiles.co.uk/o2-…B14 (£25.00 a month but you get a cheque of £150 as you send them your bills - 12 month contract with O2)

4. Pay £12.50 for the SIM EACH MONTH

5. Pay £25.00 (minimum payment) for your credit card EACH MONTH

and you end up paying £37.50 for a superb iPhone 6 deal!

(after 18-20 months, you'll have to close the Credit Card balance and pay the balance of about £170 if you don't want to pay interest).

*************************************

Possible cashback:

Quidco 2% (no TCB) on Apple Store = £12.38

Quidco £10.00 / TCB £26.25 on American Express BA Credit Card

Quidco £5.00 for Mobiles.co.uk pay monthly SIMO

Edit: you'll find it VERY hard to pay this price even for the iPhone 5/5C/5S, let alone for the brand new iPhone 6, making this a REALLY good deal, doesn't it?

APPLE MIGHT NOT BE / IS NOT THE BEST MANUFACTURER.
iPhone MIGHT NOT BE / IS NOT THE BEST PHONE.

THAT'S NOT THE POINT.

IF you waane get this phone and IF you wanne pay as little as possible - THEN this might be a good deal!

Utterly mind-blowing phone.. Fantastic.

Why not just fly to the USA for a little holiday and pick it up for $750 or £450 saving you £200 on the price and you get a nice holiday too.



This is the most ludicrous posting I have ever seen on this site

Don't apple do 0% finance?, Over a certain period of time . Think it's 12 months

Care to explain why?

Interesting idea, guess it would be even cheaper if you go for the 16GB model.

£619 for a phone with last year's specifications and "new" technology from three years ago. What a bargain.

cos no Apple UK replacing / repair service for devices purchases abroad. Something goes wrong, you'll have to head to Heathrow...

Because the frequencies on the usa iphones are different than the uk iphones. You would get basic 3g on at&t phones from the states, but if something goes wrong with the phone under warranty, and you go to your local apple store, they will replce the screen for you only, but they will not replace the phone as they dont have a like for like model. I can tell you this from experience.

They will replace the screen for you if it is a manufacturing fault within warranty or if you pay for a noo-manufacturing fault.

also 4g will not work here in the UK on a USA Iphone

Good monthly breakdown if you get get a phone upon release!

Surely you'd have to factor in the final £170 payment...so over 18 months this would make it around £47 per month...crap deal for an overrated phone!

If you need to finance a phone that way you can't afford it!
Try living within your means.
I'm buying this phone on Friday with money that's in my bank. It might be last years technology and an overrated phone but I can afford it so am happy to spend 600 on one. I'll get 170 trade in for my iphone 5 too.

My iPhone 5c is a way better deal! 32g iPhone 5c for £27 a month, 4GB data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts, if say this is a way better deal so not hard to find an iphone a million times better than this, way too much messing around and getting in to debt for, COLD!!!!!!

I am an Apple fan...... my mind really wasn't blown at all I am affraid, its nothign more than what was expected. As always its the IOS that is the game changer for me not the actual hardware, think I will upgrade from my 4 to a 5. More excited by the iPad news TBH.

Nothing wrong with intrest free finance IMHO as long as thats what it is, I would agree that high intrest finance should be avoided at all costs.

Agreed - mind completely unblown.
Can't find anywhere it saying it has:
waterproof and/or dust proof capabilities
sapphire screen
or anything revolutionary to make it stand out from the crowd

And sorry, I wouldn't categorise this as a deal.
It is an idea for spreading the cost

Well, if you don't happen to find a twenty on the pavement, just go to O2, EE, Vodafone or Three and pay £45+ x 24 months for this phone.
You can leave the receipt on the pavement, for me.

Ahhh a spec monkey I see? Its got nothing to do with specs, its how the devices works in hand. It's not the hardware that makes me by Apple its the iOS. I have nothing against Andriod devices, I used to own many but I wouldnt go back to them any time soon, simply personal preference.

I like the idea how he maths everything out but, i could tell you know if you are on EE, they have a sim card at £6 per month giving you umlimit calls,text and 2Gb data on a 12months bases, give EE a ring as these are very limited, i purchased one yesterday when the sales team rang me.

Anyone know how much will i get if i traded in my iphone 5s 16gb gold to apple instore?

"So why shouldn’t I buy an Iphone 5s from the US?

The iPhone 5s being sold unlocked in the US is a A1533 model and the iPhone 5s in the UK is the A1457 model. What’s the difference? It’s all to do with the networks, different models of iPhone support different bands.

With the introduction of 4G the network bands have started to fragment around the world, with different standards being implemented in different zones. For this reason Apple actually makes five different versions of the iPhone 5s, and each one offers a different set of system bands:"

American phones won't work in the UK

Enough with the spec whores. This phone will run better than any phone out right now even with an A8 dual core you don't need a quad core android when an A8 runs faster and better

mark_trev

Sorry forgot to mention is a 4G, and 2GB data (can tether)

I am not looking for iPhone 6 but for a good sim only deal and the deal (mobiles.co.uk/o2-…tml?tid=4S62MFEB14) posted here seems to be good. Thanks

Because i am an existing customer, the sim card bill goes onto my current mobile contract bills, so i cant get you one. Is more like a separate sim card for a friend/ family user. The guy (Tony) rang me on 0845 286 0303 asking my usage are fairly high on the data plan i am currently with, so he said as these new exclusive offers to EE existing customer, we can do you a separate sim card for £6 with unlimit calls, txt, 4G, 2GB data and you can use it on your ipad mini saving you to tethering your data from your phone.
