call quality on the 7 and 7+ are awful, muffled sound = terrible. I sent both of mine back to Apple store, I now use my iphone 6s and its great. Don't get me wrong its a good phone besides that.

Didn't you try the replacement iphone 7 out to see if you just had a bad batch phone?

No I didn't because I had both the iphone 7 and iphone 7+ and they both had same problem,

So... It's a nice phone unless you want to us know, make calls...

I am guessing due to the fact that you mandatorily need Bluetooth headphones OR the lightning connector ones supplied by apple OR carry the lightning connector supplied in the box

What are the terms for the phone to be linked to EE?

No terms. No contract. They sell returns so some are linked to a provider

You mandatorily need Bluetooth headphones do you? What a loads of crap! You get headphones in the box with a lightening connector and you also get a standard - lightening adaptor in the box.

Agree, these phones come with a lightning to 3.5mm jack as standard.

Returns? i thought the Phone was supposed to be new


Do I still get to use any Sim? Else how is it not locked?

Yeah they stated it incorrectly but it's still ridiculous you need to carry an adaptor to use the most commonly used connector for audio equipment on the planet. The idea is good but way too early to force adoption on the public. Another 5 years maybe. Stupid idea at this moment in time

But in another 5 years people will probably be saying the same, too soon. There is no right time! The iPhone isn't the first phone to adopt this stance (Moto Z and Moto Z Force), yet it appears to be the end of the world because they have done it? I have used bluetooth headphones for some time, won't go back. So it is not an issue for me if my preferred manufacturer of smart phones (samsung, just in case you thought this was some apple fanboy or sheep - yawn) decided to ditch it. My car has bluetooth, I use bluetooth headphones, have a JBL bluetooth speaker in my bedrooom, and chromecast audio in the main living area. I have not used the port for quite some time, I can't imagine I am alone on this.

Hello!!!!....Its £700 for a phone, £700. You hear that, £SEVEN HUNDRED POUNDS. You can buy a laptop, decent phone & holiday for that money. I really dont get this! If you work on national minimum wages, that 105 hours you have to work to get this, 2 and a half weeks. I would rather 2 and half weeks off work and no phone. Get Android, Apple has had its day!

Wait a minute, I hope you don't drink or smoke or buy takeaways! I do none of the above yet I choose to test myself as my one luxury to a premium product that, for me, suits my needs.

It's all personal choice and I feel I have a product that for the amount of hours I use it per year equate to much better value for money than urinating expensive booze that is gone instantly or smoking cash into thin air

It's all relative

I agree many people won't find it a problem but at the same time many will. I've not heard one person in the flesh say it's a better idea than having it still. What've you gained by losing it? Sod all. Better to have the option of using it than not. I'd be saying the same thing if android or Samsung etc were doing it too by the way. It's the concept I think is stupid.

My way everybody can use their headphones, your way only some can. And the gain is nothing.

After getting an Oppo Find 7 for £110 anything above £150 seems ridiculous. Most folk change their phones every 2 years, yes Apple keep good residuals, but still a big loss. Samsung even bigger loss.

Got my daughtera BLU 5" off Amazon for £80 earlier this year and that is also brilliant.

But you do have an option, included headphones that use the lightning/microUSB port dependent on device, or a dongle, not ideal, but not the end of the world. The gain for iphone in particular, was supposedly to get the waterproofing they wanted. Less routes of entry, including the physical home button. Plus it allowed them room for the new haptic engine, again, a marmite feature, but essential in helping achieve a more waterproof design. Personally, I would have preferred a larger battery, but that is a personal preference.

How is it different to you spending £639 on a graphics card to allow you to play games on your PC? Especially when you can get a used Xbox one or PS4 for cheaper. Horses for courses.

Others have achieved waterproofing without losing the jack plus that haptic engine is awful move. The home button feels wrong now.

As for carrying a dongle, more connections to go wrong/lose/replace etc. Not gonna happen. This is the first time ever I've not upgraded as felt it wasn't worth it including the price increase. I always get the new iPhone. Not this time.

I agree about the battery increase, id rather have a 2mm thicker phone with a better battery life (especially since 10.1 iOS update too as my plus is now not even lasting a day for the first time ever! Mortified!)

I thought exactly the same, but I just leave the adaptor plugged into my headphones. So it's actually made no difference to me.

I was a massive apple fan, and was screaming for a bigger screened phone, when the 6 was released, I was almost euphoric, but the battery is woeful. I took a break away from iOS, ran the OPO for a while, then a G4(with a replaceable battery was brilliant), and now the S7 Edge. Unplugged at 7.45am, does me all day until I need to give it a top up mid/late evening, but most of the time I get to bed time without the need to charge. Take this morning as an example, been listening to the new audio book by Alan Partridge, via bluetooth, with occasional browsing and replying to messages, the phone is at 71% as I look at it now. I am happy with that! Until such a time that iPhones are at that level, I am happy with what I have :-)

Too late, expired...

Have a read through the info on the site. They do sell brand new ones but also returned ones that are graded in terms of condition.
If it was Vodafone returns then those phones will only accept a Vodafone sim card.

Expired! Sold out

There is 1 back in stock at the moment if anyone wants

For anyone who is interested.

*I ordered an iPhone 7 128GB in black from Smartfonestore Tuesday afternoon
*On Wednesday I received an email saying that there was a small problem. They noticed damaged packaging when preparing to ship so could either send another as soon as one came back in to stock, or provide immediate refund.
*I replied via email saying that the phone will be a gift and is needed by end of next week as a birthday present. If they expect more stock within a few days then I am happy to wait, but otherwise I would request a refund.
*On Thursday Smartfonestone sent out a 256GB replacement item for the same price of the 128GB version I ordered.
*Phone has been received today (Friday) and is new as described.

I am a very happy customer. Sure, there was a problem with my order but they informed me immediately and rectified it quickly. They were also unreasonably generous in providing the higher capacity model without charge. My wife (who will become the owner) will never need 256GB, but it is nice of retailer to be so kind. I had never used them before, but given my first experience I will certainly use them again.

I think they are a quality place for second hand phones, I have had a few good grade B phones from them that have been like new to me.

When they say B grade available for an iPhone 7 does this simply mean a used phone or refurbished because as i understand it the iPhone 7 is fairly new and thus if it was returned after being used then was something wrong with it?
