I've just spotted this great deal on iPhone 5 through Phones 4U! I know some of you hate apple but this is still a great deal! Unlimited calls and texts and 1GB data for £31 p/m! £99 handset cost but you can get £100 back from quidco so it's essentially like having a free iPhone 5 for £31 p/m!!!

I checked with my network and I averaged 220MB over my last contract, thanks to using some wi-if so I'm sure this will be more than ample for most average users like me!

It's not a free iphone 5. It costs £31x24=£744 in total. It's a good deal for someone who needs the latest iphone. Expensive to others.

This has to be the first iphone 5 deal I have seen which is over 0 degrees!

My 750MB of data has seen me through most of my contract...... until I could not get Wi-Fi in a hotel and had to resort to 3G. Due to a crappy TV system at the hotel, BBC1 had no sound so I resorted to using the iPhone for sound, over 2 nights stay it soon reminded me that my data usage was close to it's limit!

good deal,

Just bought one for my husband thank you, great deal... Also got £10 extra quidco bonus for referring my husband and buying through his account. Heat!

Plus quidco is not guaranteed and can take ages -should not be counted as (part of) a deal

How does quidco work?

could someone explain it briefly, the videos make it sound too good to be true

Also why are people voting it cold??

People are voting cold because benefit cap is coming soon and they won't be able to afford luxury any more.

About time benefits were cut even further.

Mate you been reading too much DM.

Lol I take it you like to ride your 'Aston Martin' with the window down just so you can gloat to everyone about your level of wealth.

Same as I'm paying for my 4s but I've had that a year already wish I had this tho

1GB should be okay for most people, however having had unlimited data for a few months now it's very liberating being able to stream video over 3G without worrying about bandwidth.

It stopped being a good deal site when it got popular and turned into one big popularity contest.

Easy, you go quidco site, find the retailer you want and click the link to the required site. Anything you buy will be tracked with quidco and you will get the commission back. Then quidco will transfer cash to your bank. usually 1-3 months before you get your money.

£80.80 through Topcashback, tempted

This deal is effectively the same as buying the phone and using it on a £10p/m sim from GiffGaff.. I personally hate being tied down to contracts, 2 years is a loooong time to have a phone, I change phones every year as the technology changes too much. Plus you won't be tied down to a contract and can change plans at any time, I bought the phone outright and opted for GiffGaff's £12p/m sim for unlimited internet, 250mins, unlimited texts, free calls to giffgaff..

There is a cheaper way to get your hands on the iPhone 5. Like has already been said Quidco isn't always reliable so don't count this as cash in your hand!!!!!

As has already been shared this deal is £744+£99 = £843 (if you get Quidco cashback then consider this a bonus)

Buy the iPhone 5 outright from Apple = £529, and then a SIM Only contract with Tesco for £10 p/m (only a 12 month contract too).
= £769 (there is cashback through Quidco again, but consider this a bonus)

There are better and cheaper options for a mobile. Not voting either way.

I have been offered via 02 retrntions £40 handset. £36 p month , unlimit texts and calls and 2 gb data and they do the buy out scheme when new EE comes out ... and does not upset my billing cycle

Or can go for carphonewarehouse o2 free phone ,, same deal only 1gb for £36 but £100 quidco

Help ?

Buy the iPhone 5 outright from Apple = £529, and then a SIM Only contract with Tesco for £10 p/m (only a 12 month contract too).
= £769 (there is cashback through Quidco again, but consider this a bonus)
------------------------------------
Buying outright is cheaper for every commodity however most people would not outright purchase a phone peoples ethos like mine is paying £20 simplicity so for £16 a month extra more mins, texts and phone

Which network is this on?

Is this the 16gb or 32?

Is it really too hard to click on the link?! O2, 16GB

buying the phone for £199 and the £26 tariff saves you an extra £20 over the term...

Have voted hot on my assumption that the quidco will pay and that iphone contracts have been at best £60 per month for old phones for ages. I think the Android competition is pushing down Apple contract prices.

Excellent deal.

Do O2 still allow you to remove Data Bolt-Ons?

Ie, could I remove the data bolt on, only paying 503 for the phone and contract for 2 years. Sell the phone and more or less cover the cost, giving me a free Sim card with Unlimited calls/texts on it to stick into a parents old phone who would never ever use internet but does a lot of talking?

And why can't to just buy a sim card?

Plus, horrendously expensive. Cold

It is on my iphone 5

1GB is an insult these days and somewhat embarrassing for a smart phone....

It's a good deal considering the sim-free price of the phone and low up-front payment, but what a boring phone and only 16GB storage. If you just need a phone to hold out in front of you while wandering around the supermarket in your Uggs, looking confused, I guess 16GB is plenty.

Many of these so-called 'premium brand' consumer goods end up becoming a victim of their own success, with the original high net worth customers abandoning them as they see plebs associating themselves with the brands in an attempt to raise their feelings of self worth and social status by association. The brand only manages to maintain its premium status while it continues to be endorsed by society's influencers. Once that support is lost, the mass market loses it's attraction to the brand and sales drop. Some premium brands actually try to de-market their products to alienate potential mass market buyers so that exclusivity and premium status is maintained for their core market. This restricts growth, but hopefully secures the future of the brand. Chanel No5 was a famous example of this.

I'd hate to see Apple implode on itself like this because they have made some valuable contributions to technology and consumer electronics over the years. There was a time when Apple offered something new and different with some real advantages, all they offer now is more of the same, in a slightly different package, with an eco-sytem which surreptitiously locks people in with both hardware and software. The recent change of docking interface may present the opportunity for existing detainees to see the light and break out. Right now though, I think a reality check is needed and Apple need to start becoming more consumer focused and less profit driven.

All that hassles for a sim card? And tell me how you can sell the phone and get at least 500 cash in your hand when people can buy it from apple for 529 unlocked.

Seems a good deal for what it is so voted hot. Not for me though like others have said 24months is toooo long. I have a 4 but think I may skip a couple of generations as nothing new to the table thus far.

C'mon now, you're smarter than that. Everyone has different requirements. 1GB is plenty for some, and not enough for others. Many even get away with 512MB.

if you work in an office and only use the phone to and from work.. 1gb is fine... guessing at home and work you would just jump onto the wifi signal anyway.

Great deal...

I change phones every year as the technology changes too much. .



Be honest with yourself, the technology really doesn't change much at all, you just want to have the latest thing.

They add a bit more RAM, increase the screen slightly and up the processor by a few hundred Mhz..I wouldn't call that 'changing too much'.

I'm confused what the handset costs outright, so I can put any sim in and avoid a contract?
