3 year contract and not a lot of data.
Some folks here just too sheeps to see they're being slain.
£46/month for 3 years with 40Gb data, unlimited texts and 5000 minutes/month - iPhone 8 plus 256Gb. Effectively paying interest free for the phone, with a airtime deal on top, a bit like 02 refresh.

Seems good on the face of it, but obviously longer tie in. Not sure who underpins the Virgin Mobile network these days?
I must admit, I thought 3 year contracts were a no no as advised by Ofcom, Orange used to do them and had to change them. Anyway 3 years and still a decent amount each month is not a good deal.

just researched it and they are banned under Ofcom,?the link does not work either

Its not a 3 year "phone contract"

Its a loan for the phone and a seperate airtime package

Not the best data? This is worst data ever, after 36 months it will be iphone 12!!
3 year contract? would you not be better off buying it on the 20 month finance deal then getting the plusnet £7/pm deal for the sim? £699 for the phone and 36*£7 is £252 total price is £951. That is a £93 saving on this deal over 3 years plus more flexibility, minutes and twice the data from the Plusnet sim deal.

The only advantage of this deal is the payments are evenly spread over 3 years on the phone and there is no upfront cost. In my example you'd pay £69 upfront and £38.50 a month for 20 months so £9.5 a month more to start, but £22 a month less for the remaining 20 months.
Just 1.2 gb data?? That's no good.i like to watch pornhub on my lunch hour
From T&C. The charge for your airtime plan will increase with your July bill each year from July 2018. Any increase will be in line with the retail Price Index (RPI) rate of inflation announced in the April before and we’ll always give you 30 days’ notice of the exact increase each year.
iPhone 8 is pure comedy.

Basically the same tired design as the previous version(s) but now they want almost £1,000 for it...

COLD.
Awful deal
