Found this iPhone 6s on John Lewis. This is the cheapest I can find it with a FREE two year warranty. You can also find this on Giffgaff for the same price but it will only come with the standard one year warranty.

Blurb from the John Lewis website:

With enhanced cameras, faster processing and a 3D Touch Retina HD display, the iPhone 6s changes everything. Powered by the latest version of iOS, iPhone 6s includes a smarter than ever Siri, Apple Pay and TouchID for the most advanced iPhone ever.
3D Touch

Multi-Touch gestures like Tap, Swipe and Pinch, 3D Touch introduces Peek and Pop. And you’ll feel every interaction too, thanks to the taptic engine, which allows your iPhone to respond in subtle taps.

It’s faster, with improved tone mapping and image stabilisation, so you can just tap the shutter and let iPhone do the rest. And with four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD video, the detail you can capture in videos is simply extraordinary.

Interesting!! I added heat and it got -ve....
Hot for me. This is the best price around and also an added bonus of additional years warranty.

I wish people would vote at a deal it terms of whether it's a best price you can get something rather than their personal grudges against a company.
I've got one, paid a bit more for it and got one year less warranty, so how can I not vote hot to this particular deal
This will lock to first network though.
It will not as it's Sim Free.
Bought this from Tesco Direct. Better deal in my opinion with 599 clubcard points plus £9 Quidco/TCB and a free Lebara sim with £10 credit on it
This was £619 when Tesco had it for £599 so I'm guessing they're price matching
still over priced compared to other mobile phones based on spec, performance etc. I did have one but changed to android for a more open platform

sim free won't lock to first sim/network, bought one from currys a while ago and takes different sims
John Lewis iPhones have been reported before as sim free and totally unlocked

Not to start a fanboy war, but i've got friends with the latest samsung and honestly, 2gb or 3gb ram androids don't beat the iPhone. Specs look great on paper, but Apple manage to get full performance out of the hardware they use, so a 3gb android wouldn't necessarily be better than the iPhone. The only thing I like about some of the newer androids is the very fast touch-unlock functionality, but once you're in the phone, that's it. And in terms of security, the iPhone wins hands down. That being said, this is a rather expensive device, but look at the Samsung S7 and Blackberry Priv, they're not exactly cheap either.

Sorry but u r wrong iPhones lock to the first network. Unless purchased from Apple
I officially hate apple. Got two disabled iPads thanks to my nephew, and can't restore them because, I don't know why... Even after faffing around with iTunes.

Still, hot.

There seems to be some confusion about whether iphones from JL lock to first network or not. When I was considering a previous iPhone deal few months ago, I rang JL to ask, and both online CS and the instore staff said they didn't know!
Hopefully they have found out by now

iPhones bought from Carphone Warehouse do lock to the first SIM used to activate the handset however John Lewis iPhones are just like those bought from Apple and are completely unlocked and will not lock to first SIM used.

That's not correct.

The only phones that are truly factory unlocked are Apple's.

If, for example, you put a Three SIM in first, it will register the first network on Apple's registration servers as Three, but as Three have a no-lock policy the phone's record at Apple will be immediately updated to unlocked.

Try putting an O2 SIM in first instead and see what happens!

Buying a iphone which gets locked to the first network is not a deal breaker at all.
There is a way to unlock any iphone for free (even the 6S) but it's not common knowledge

Maybe not for you, but it was for me and is why I bought direct from Apple. I like to use my phone abroad with a local SIM.

You'll also get better resale value and a wider resale audience.

Not such a big deal now that Three have a no lock policy - as long as you can borrow a friends SIM for 5 mins when you first unbox
I bought a 6 and more recently a 6S form Carphone Warehouse and neither have locked to a network. Both had a Tesco sim in to start then occasionally use a 3 SIM when traveling abroad.
So no, they don't lock.

Phones from some suppliers look to the first SIM but phones from KRCS, John Lewis and eBuyer definitely don't. It's not true that they *have* to be from the Apple Store to be truly unlocked rather than 'SIM free' anymore, though this did used to be the case.

£600 for a phone. A phone. £600. For a phone.



And? My life is littered with devices and objects that cost more than £600 and which I use far less than my phone. With that in mind, why is it a bad thing to spend £600 on a phone (assuming you have the money)?

I think I'd be angry with your nephew rather than Apple for that one! Hope you can sort it out.
When I bought my iPhone 6s from JL last year, it did say on their website it would be locked to the network of the first sim you put in. I haven't tried it yet but it has now been removed from their website so might be okay now.
Sorry but dont like the iphone ,work iphone 5 battery is shocking,i much prefer Android,so from my experience with iphone, its a no sorry
Bought one from JL Brent Cross and the manager of electronics department confirmed that it won't lock to a particular network, so same as buying from Apple but with 2 year warranty. It used to be the case but John Lewis made them all unlocked following a multitude of complaints from costumers
The 6 and 6s phones are awful for designs. I mean that sticking out camera and antenna bands showing off...?! Look at the SE. Beautiful. Size dont matter too, a phone should still be small.

​Seriously? The Galaxy S7 has a protruding camera as does the Nexus 6P and while the LG G5 doesn't, it does have a slightly protruding finger print sensor! All flagship phones of the respective manufacturers, so not exactly an awful design feature. As for the antenna band? Most people when spending this sort of money on a phone, wrap it in a cover, so who cares? The cover also acting to take up the difference between the phone back and the protruding camera, eliminating both your issues, but i suppose haters gotta hate!

​The last 2 phones Samsung have released blow the last 2 iphone specs out the water. Superior everytime.
I don't understand all this locking to the first network used. It's like getting a new TV and only being able to watch the first channel that comes on. Anyway...stupid Apple!!
