Vodafone are currently sitting on an under the table deal, 12 month iPhone plans, best value one is £50 per month with an upfront cost of £99. So you can take this on its merits and get, according to "YouGov" the UK's most desirable network, with a solid 12 month plan.

Or if you dont mind going 24 months, then you can go one further, and use the companies current "Upgrade Anytime" policy, which would allow you to upgrade the contract 6 months early, and obv choose a sim only package for 12 additional months @ £15-£20 pm dependant on your usage, so then you only pay the £50 for 6 months.

Kerching?

dont like 24mth deals but yeh its more like a standard locked in 18months plus a locked in but reduced rate 6 mths....but you are relying on no price change in 18mths so you cant class this as a proper deal...im waiting for the iphone 5 to see what happens....im hoping the iphone price will start to drop as apple are losing phone share to competitors, just like the tampax

Should it read if you don't mind going 18 months not 24 months?

Cash back on the deal too

Do you have the terms and conditions of the Upgrade Anytime policy?

From what I can see (as a non-Vodafone customer), you can upgrade "up to 190 days early", which implies that it might not apply to all contracts or customers.

Royals, you can go for the £50 for 12 months, and as it is contracted the price is guarenteed... or you can pay £50pm for the first 6 then £15-20 for the next 18.

The T&C's are complex, but the main parts are, if you upgrade to a handset, their may be a charge, but never a charge for upgrading to a SIMO.
And Hummer, if you upgrade 6 months early, then those 6 months are added to the commitment making it a 24 month plan, but at the discounted rate

If it's the same as other networks, the new contract length is added on from your original end date, not the date you upgrade. ie. if you upgrade with 6 months left, you have a 12 month contract + 6 months.

Don't think I've explained that well.

We can thank OFCOM for this, they have recently ruled that it be unfair for companies to simply not offer 12 month options, so by JUNE all companies should be offering the good old fashioned 12 month plans again.

Link please ?

They will be simply be priced to make 24m contracts too good to resist unfortunately

1st of all @ ashtad, as mentioned in the original post, its an under the table deal, so either last resort for the sales agent, or possibly if you ask.

And @ Zurich, sorry for the sales speal, but work in sales so sometimes come off with the jargon when not meaning too. The £50 deal is the 1200 minutes, unlimited texts, 750 Mb of data, 1GB BT Openzone, and the Vodafone data traveller pack.

Should be still £150 cashback from quidco, but this may involve waiting until the deal gets put online

would have been £150 but the cash back deal excludes iPhone's so its £40 instead.

Original Poster

Well £40 is still £40, with the quidco, takes the deal to average £25.83 pm

well annoyed upgraded 6 weeks ago onto a 24 month plan, free iphone 4 and the same price plan as the £50 one but im paying £45 for the privalage, dam vodafone. Very hot deal

surely its £50mth for 24 hours with the option to upgrade 6mths early when you can go for a sim only deal for say £15/mth....so its 18mths is £50/mth then 6mths is £15/mth

be wary of iphones though and they con artist apps...went to zurich and switched off wifi and notifcations and never used any apps.....o2 tried to charge me £28 for minute amount of data i never used.....seems these conartist apps are sending data in the background without user intervention - thats disgraceful and should be outlawed (ive complained to ofcom)....otherwise im gonna write an iphone app which sends data unbeknown to the user and generate loads of money as a legal scam

o2 refunded the money after i threatened to terminate my contract

Well, the EU actually, ofcom dont do **** all for the consumers -.-
This actually seems to be a decent deal but whats the assurance you can use upgrade anytime after the first 6 months?

The first part of the post I understand but the second part does not make sense it's a 24 month contract but you can upgrade 6 months early that still makes it 18 months before you can do this ?

i like this cell phone so much and in future i like to buy it

Don't forget that if you work for certain companies you get 20% off the £50 line rental too. Someone posted the list of employers about 6 weeks ago and extends to 5 friends and family members of those employees too.

thats really good as my wife works for lloyds banking group so the £50 a month works out at £40 then £99 for the iphone 4 on a 12 month contract = £579 - £40 quidco = £539 over the year happy days
Edited by: "ashtad" 8th Mar 2011

Don't think you can have quidco on top as then you are using more than 1 discount.

My friend works on-call for RBS so he rang them up but they could not confirm if RBS employees are still eligible ;/
Dont fancy taking out a 600 quid contract hoping to get the discount when it may not go through ;/

OK not a deal but inspired by this thread to re-try t-mobile as my contract expires in 2 days. Was looking for 12 month Tesco or Vodafone Iphone 4 16bg. I have been offered, and accepted, a 16gb Iphone 4, 600 mins, unlimited text and 1gb data use for £35 per month / £49 cost for handset and an 18 month contract. OK not brilliant but overall a pretty good 18 month cost.

May help someone who is looking in a similar situation.

RBS not eligible now supposedly, no longer part of the employee advantage
