Found this to be a good deal for 128gb
Tethering + WiFi on the London Underground + Double Speed 4G + Inclusive Roaming+ Unlimited 080 Calls + Includes WiFi calling from EE at no extra cost

Note: This is only for new customers, for existing customers (like me) have to pay £66 upfront, which makes no sense but that's the way it is.

Good deal, heat added.

Also OP, if you wish to waive the upfront cost then surely you can make a new account?

But then its a bit of a hassle, to port the number to other provider then port it from them to EE again. I just went ahead with the £66 upfront.

per month cost ?

£44.99

for 40 quid the number port would have only cost the price for a sim and 72 hrs to transfer it bck and forth but each his own...

Not sure why it's cold, when there is no better deal in the market.

£45 a month. That is eye-watering for a phone. Seriously, if you're going to pay that much for a phone over two years then just buy it outright and get a sim-only deal that is good for you. Even allowing for interest on a loan it would still work out cheaper.

But then to activate the sim it would cost £10 to £15

Get that, but if it is paid by work (monthly bills) and needs atleast 10GB data, then it's a good deal? no?

As per my calculation - 45*12 = 1080 + 26 = £1106, which means if you take out £700 for the phone, then you are left with £406 for min, text, data(10gb), which is for £16 a month. Overall, doesn't look like a bad deal?

I tad dramatic.

And no it does not work out cheaper to buy the Iphone outright and add a sim only.

This EE tariff is £28.99 x 24 months = £695.76
The cheapest new 128gb IPhone 6 on the net is £550

£695.76 + £550 = £1245

So for somebody that needs the 128gb storage and also needs 10gb internet usage then this is the best deal currently available. I thought that was the point of this site??

Wish you had to vote with reason - can't see why this is cold - voted hot

Ebay

Oh ok. Thanks

£1100 hahahaha.

I'm paying the same for a 64gb iPhone 6! So this is a good deal.

Every is different on their phone needs.

iPhone 6s is apparently due Aug/Sept so may be worth hanging on for, on the assumption that there may be some cheaper deals on the iPhone 6 ? ,

No idea why this is being downvoted, this is a great deal for the 128GB. You won't find it cheaper. Heat added.

That makes the assumption that the person must have an EE tariff (and if you're on EE already the offer doesn't apply) and must have the exact offer here. 3 gives you a sim with unlimited data for £17 a month. TPO give unlimited texts and minutes and 6GB of data for £15 a month.

My point is that maybe people aren't voting hot because the cost of the contract subsidises the entire cost of the phone itself, with the added benefit (to them) of locking you into an EE contract for two years.

The 3 sim you mentioned only has 200 minutes talk time, so its irrelevant as this deal has unlimited minutes.

The TPO sim is 6GB of data, again its irrelevant as this deal is 10GB of data.

I get if people personally find the cost too much for them, or can't justify paying that much for a mobile phone contract, in that case just don't vote, but to vote cold makes no sense when this is currently the cheapest deal on a128gb iphone with unlimited mins/texts and 10gb data.

There are many people out there who require this amount of data/storage/mins/texts and this would be the most cost effective option for them, which would surely mean a hot deal.
