After watching this site for a long time, I had a feeling it would get cold in here. Appreciate iOS is not everyone's thing.... But I thought getting a preorder for launch day with extra guarantee was worthy of a little heat.... Maybe not, ah well maybe just go back to watching.
A bit of advice OP for what it's worth - link to deal is a must on here' folk will often cold vote something that doesn't include the link/detail oO
I'm not keen on the 2 year guarantee. Apple products don't actually require any guarantee at all. They are strong and robust and last forever and ever and ever and ever and ever x infinity.

Not sure that helps neal oO
The most expensive should really have a sticker or a little tag to show everyone how much you have spent on the extra memory.

If you are posting this deal from a mobile device then you need to ensure its marked as an online deal and not offline' it's happened to me too loads of times to the point I gave up and posted from my laptop' never had an issue up to the latest app update :-(
Better than 1 yr warranty @ Apple. Just ordered. Thanks

Mine had / has working links in.

Please note:iPhone will lock itself to the network of the first SIM card that is used in the phone. Subsequently attempting to use it on any other network, for example by replacing the SIM card, may mean it becomes permanently unusable. SIM free iPhones can only be used with a UK-network SIM card, and will not accept foreign SIM cards.

Never knew that..... Is that a new feature? I thought sim free was unlocked always?

​you are wrong. Buy direct from Apple. It's always unlock. You can use anywhere in the world with different sim. Only car phone warehouse lock to the first sim insert
Where is the deal? Extra 1 year warranty? It's a joke. IPhone fashion run out after 12 months. You are not cool anymore if you use older iPhone. IPhone mean for rich people. That's why apple user always buy latest iPhone.
Unlocked to any network worldwide
Shame the pink 6s+ are already out of stock

​Tell that to everyone I see with the home button obscuring their screen...
Could someone confirm that simfree means unlocked in johnlewis wording ? Thanks
Oh I'll answer my own question, don't buy it !! In the description they say: please note iphone will lock itself to the network of the first Sim card.... Meaning it's not equivalent to phones sold by apple directly.

Always amazes me this, it's like the people who go on Facebook pages and forums asking questions that could be found a lot more quickly after a swift Google search! Johnlewis.co.uk is so hard to type into your browser thingy
if you use three as the first sim should thry not provide a free unlock code? worth a try...

​Of course they do.Had 2 iphone and both lasted just over a year and got slower everytime a new phone was due out go figure.
I like apple and enjoy using my ipad to browse the internet. However, I will never buy an IPhone. That is at least if or until they include an SD card slot in their device.

If they had this, I would buy one in a heartbeat. To me, it is a great phone, but an inconvenience for this reason, and extortionate that they charge so much more for the extra storage capacity, which presumably is why they don't add an SD card slot...to make more money out of folk.

Aside from that, this looks a decent deal.

And they are that robust, which is why my cousins 6plus is bent like a banana, and also twisted...through normal use! I'm sure this guy was actually joking.

I wish he was wrong on this but sadly he's not; remember he's 'The Porter'!

1. If you look on the John Lewis website you will see the exact text The Porter copied and pasted here under Product information.
2. Other companies also have this policy, e.g. eXpansys so as you can see it's not just Carphone Warehouse.
Any discount codes available for John Lewis?

Oh My God! Thanks for letting us know! I had actually *JUST* finished inputting my credit card details but before clicking submit, I had the idea to come over to HUKD to quickly check for any good deals first. Good thing I did, because I have now cancelled my order and will be getting my iPhone6s directly from the Apple store instead. Maybe some people might disagree but I don't think the price to unlock my brand new iPhone is worth the extra 2 year guarantee.

What is the procedure for unlocking a SIM free iPhone bought from John Lewis and what is the cost?
Dont know what to say but are people aware of Consumer Law Protection,which you can still have your faulty iphone (or other apple products) replaced beyond one year of purchase but it has to be bought directly from Apple

Consumer law allows the purchaser to raise a claim but does not guarantee a resolve. A guarantee takes out the need to prove the item was faulty either from purchase or failed within an unreasonable time. But as mentioned consumer law gives you 6 years, 5 for Scotland to raise a claim.

Look on the JL website under the iPhone Product information

As far as I'm aware, only iPhones purchased direct from Apple are truly unlocked out of the box. They should accept any UK network sim and also allow you to switch between networks without the need to pay to have it unlocked. The iPhone's supplied direct by mobile networks and mobile phone shops are unlocked until you insert the first SIM card after which they lock to that network. An unlock code is then required from your network for which a charge is usually made. It can vary depending on the network. Some networks, O2 for example will unlock for free once you've been with them on a monthly contract for at least 12 months. There is an unlock request page on their site.

Apple have quietly been increasing the price they charge for Apple Care. A couple of years ago it was circa £60 for one additional year. That then went up to circa £70 and now for the launch of iPhone 6s has been increased to £110. Not sure whether it's the same for 6s Plus or not? So imo purchasing from John Lewis and receiving one additional year of warranty for no additional cost is a no brainer.

And yes, I am aware that John Lewis 2 year warranty is not exactly the same as Apple's warranty, which in itself is excellent (often a new replacement handset is provided in-store once they have confirmed yours has a fault, none of this send it off or being without a handset fot days malarkey like with most mobile phone shops!) and used to be excellent value but it's almost double the price now.

giffgaff also supply unlocked iPhones available to use with any SIM from any network UK or overseas.

Applecare is very different from the extended guarantee offered by John Lewis, e.g. it includes telephone technical support for the device.

As for Applecare increasing in cost it's only fair to point-out that the Applecare has changed in that it now also includes up to two incidents of accidental damage, each subject to an excess fee (£55 for iPhone 6 or earlier models, £79 for iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus).
Correct. But I believe AppleCare+ (which could only be taken out at the time of purchasing an iPhone direct from Apple as opposed to regular AppleCare which can be taken out at anytime during the first 12 months) used to include accidental damage and that was at the lower prices that I mentioned. Maybe they only offer the one type of AppleCare now which includes accidental damage, albeit for a higher price than previously?

I have talked to the customer service today, and she said the phone is completely unlocked, it can use any network in the world. otherwise, i would cancel my order
