So you're saying everyone buying a phone through a contract can't afford to buy outright....?!?!

I purchased my Nexus 6P outright but if it had been cheaper to buy on a monthly payment (accounting for having the upfront part in the bank earning interest and available for other things if needed) then I would have done it that way.

Perhaps you should look after your own finances and let others look after theirs, rather than being a judgemental pratt.

This is a great price, considering this phone is new on the market and is the flagship model for Nokia.

An extra £3 gets you 8Gb of data. Shame it is on 3 though - no good for me as the signal is rubbish around where I live. Voted hot though as it is a good deal.

Excellent deal. That data plan is currently costing me £10 per month with 3.

Topcashback give £42 back

...and thinking at outlay of £528 equates to "free".

Yep, nothing is FREE! Scary how people don't understand they are taking out credit on an over priced item they don't actually need. Same people who'll be crying into their expensive coffees when their mortgage goes up by a quarter percent when it should be 3 or 4 percent more (and will be soon).

Buy by all means but ask yourself whether you can really afford it and don't kid yourself it's FREE!

But if you can afford to keep up with the payments then why is it an issue? I'm torn between this and getting it sim free. I can afford to get it sim free however this does work out cheaper as it's 400 sim free. Unless You canfind a simple only deal for 200 over 24 months that would get you 8gb data and unlimited texts and calls then buying device outright is going to cost more over that 24 month period by the time you factor in the sim cost.

So I don't feel like it's fair to say that buy taking a device out on contract it's bc people are buying things they cant afford...

I'm aware phone contracts for all network providers increase with inflation yearly. Does anyone know roughly how much these would increase by over the 24 month period. I'm happy to pay 25/minth for that deal but if it went up to 30/month I'd be less happy

If you have money to burn, put it in savings/pension/pay off other debt, etc. There's a £150 phone out there that'll suit you just as well (in fact I think Nokia's 5 and 6 are about that price point though Moto G5 is better). It may seem boring today but it's honestly good advice and you'll be happier in the end - really.

'Falls on deaf ears'!

Probably go up about 60 pence a year

If they made this phone with a decent low light camera and the looks of the Nokia 6 I'd be all over it.

Dammit that's way better than the £27 a month I pay for the same amount with Vodafone

Here you go - found you a better deal...


Works out to only £128 for the year after the £100 Amazon voucher. Plus further savings for free if you're a Spotify / NowTV / SkySports subscriber. And it's only a 12-month contract.

it's a good deal but the handset is not "free". I get a 16gb sim only deal with 3 for £11/month so this is £9 extra for only 4gb.

No, but it's worth more than I paid for it. Renting is a mugs game on an asset that appreciated. If you can't see the difference then I fear you.

You heard of bright House? You sound like their ideal customer

You heard of bright House? You sound like their ideal customer


seriously wtf are you on about please elaborate? how exactly am I an ideal customer for bright house. of course i'm not going to get a tv at birght house wiht ridiciulous interest rates when i can afford to buy it outright.

my point was that with this deal in particular. the phone is £400 to purchase outright. the contract over 24 months for the handset + 8gb data + unltd calls & texts is £600 all in. so unless i can find a sim only deal that offers me at least the same as those allowances if not more mean that buying the phone outright would cost more than buying it on this contract once you factor in the cost of a sim

Raw nerve there perhaps?

Besford5 m ago

Raw nerve there perhaps?


I just think it's a completely ridiculous comment to not back up.

there's a huge different between buying a tv from brighthouse paying god knows how much a month with god knows how much interest, than this - which is taking out a contract on a phone that includes allowances which if you were to buy the phone sim free & get a sim only contract would most likely (based on the current deals I can see) end up costing more over the 24 month period.

he's basically saying everyone with a phone contract has the mentallity of those who shop at bright house .....

oh & i'm not even on a phone contract.

I think you did not comprehend it or i was not able to explain it. If you cannot afford to pay price of handset (£400 at carphonewarehouse ) upfront then this contract allow you to pay same price in installment over 24 months period. You also get Sim contract for £5 pound a month which is still cheaper. You should stick with £10 pound mobile phone but dont blame others who are willing to purchase latest technology

When i mentioned free handset then it meant no upfront cost . Who would give you latest new mobile for free? You are comparing sim only deals with deals where you are getting top end handset which cost at least £400 and if you minus the cost of handset then its £5 pound for actual sim contract and you can upgarde it for more data by paying more..Is it hard math to understand ?

First bit of that paragraph isn't true. Tesco Mobile don't raise their prices in line with RPI. Due to their tariff promise and 0% APR on all contracts, even ones including handsets, they never raise their prices.

You’re talking nonesense mate. Absolute nonesense.

People buying stuff they cannot afford is the backbone of a consumer/consumer debt society. Watch people only buy what they can really “afford” (which includes close to three quid, quarter of an hours work at the uk average salary, for a cup of coffee) and watch the retail sector collapse.

This deal is effectively 0% credit over two years which you’d be a mug not to take up on if you’re interested in the phone.

But wouldn’t want facts to get in the way of patronising posturing would we.

No qualification is required to suggest not spending over £500 on a phone - especially if it has to be via a form of credit. Common sense and life experience teaches not to waste money, though I appreciate that advice is wasted on the 'want it and must have it now' generation. Do you qualify? Are you someone's HUKD minder or something?

Pointless comment. If you want to qualify it with "OK if the three signal is good near you , it isn't for me" that's fine.

Personally I'm happy with 70mb 4G and a free Costa coffee and a pizza each week if I want them.
