Cheapest price for this phone new ive seen is £799

This deal works out at £1060.00 minus the phone price £799 = £261 ..... now that over 2 years = £10.87 per month for 30gb on ee ..... plus you could go via top cashback £40.40 cashback

£268 upfront +£33p/m with 30gb =£1060.00

From what i have seen not a massive diffrence from the xs model.

£1000+ for last year’s model might be something to do with the cold votes!? Just because it is the cheapest doesn’t make a great deal.

Maybe include the upfront cost OP

Because it’s not Xs
You’ve not described the deal very well in the title. I just read it as £1060 for an iPhone X (yes I know it says £33 mp, but that’s how it looks at first glance). Assume it’s inclusive of calls and txts?
A free phone would have made this deal hot.
Tesco are doing a deal for £36.99/m with no upfront payment but the contract is for 36 months.

tescomobile.com/sho…e-x

I am still trying to decide if to just buy one up front either reburb or new or get a contract. I am more inclined to buy up front as not been locked into a contract for many years now. Or maybe just stick to my wife's ex 64GB SE and save a ton of money.

The problem with the refurbs is that they don’t come with many of the accessories and so will be worth less when you come to sell it and you may also need to purchase those accessories. There is also the issue of battery life, as you don’t want to be paying for a new battery a few years down the line.

I used to always buy phones upfront as I don’t like being locked into contracts either, but to be honest, it is now the cheapest way to buy an iPhone by quite some margin. As long as you select a carrier that will unlock the phone for free, which is most of them, then you won’t have to worry at the end of your contract about paying to have it unlocked.

I was on the verge of buying an iPhone 8 as I could get a 30% discount on the contract, but it was still nearly £600. On reflection, I decided that I didn’t need it as I don’t even use the phone that much so even though it was as cheap as you could get one of these phones on contract, it was still unnecessary spend. The iPhone 6 I currently have, had a new battery fitted just before Christmas at the discounted rate and so it should be good for another couple of years. It will go out of support at some point, but it will still work for what I need and so the £600 will sit very nicely in my account earning interest.

I remember the days when you didn’t have to spend £1000 to change your phone. Seems such a long time ago!

Thanks for your reply. Yes I am recently retired and probably spend too much time on here looking for bargains. My wife and I have £8.99 EE sims with 4GB/unlimited minutes and texts. I recently picked up a refurb iPhone 7 from argos with 128GB for my wife and have taken her SE. Costs £318 and its like new with 100% good battery (according to the apple test). We have always purchase a few models back and I take her old phone, as it's much better value

Like you I wonder what ugrading would give me. I use it a bit for whatsapp, take pics of my new grandchildren mostly. I am finding the smaller screen a pain though I guess even with a larger screen I would still need to use glasses. Leaving my savings in an account don't earn that much interest and you can't take it with you.

If I need to type a lot I get on my iMac, like now. Apple is expensive but I like the environment and that is from someone who spent 30 years + in IT!

I currently work in IT and have done for 20 years, although I am away off retirement at the moment.

My eyesight is not as great as it used today and I also find this mobile phone is a bit of a pain to use as a result. Even the bigger ones won’t make a great deal of difference. Will an iPad not be better suited for your purpose?
As regards interest on your money, that is no excuse to spend it Sir!! We may have to cancel your HUKD subscription with talk like that. ;-) What if your health takes a turn for the worse and you need to pay for a private operation, or, God forbid, you need to pay for carers!? You could alternatively look at low risk investments to hopefully improve things somewhat.

Good points Steve though having done 40 years public service (started at 16) my pension should get me by fine and we own our own home.

I tried a mini iPad but found unless I had a bag with me it remained unused. I can just about make out stuff on my iPhone SE but much better with reading glases asI am mostly short sighted.

We spent years holding back financially with children and mortgages to fund, so now spoil ourselfs a bit more. As a type 1 diabetic since an early age, I have always had excellent NHS care and given my condition who knows what the future holds. With two new young grandchildren we also get to spoil them as well

After doing the sums I decided to stick to my EE £8.99 sim and purchased another phone refurbished from Argos, an iPhone X 64GB for £589.99

Here is hoping its as good as the one I got for my wife. If not Argos seem to be very good with returns.

To me buying via a contract seems to be way more expensive and you have to commit for up to 24/36 months.

This way I am on a monthly renewable contract of £8.99. I appreciate you do need up front money.
