Terrible.

Amend the price to reflect the fact you have to pay £600 for the privilege of 2 year old technology.

AVOID.

But for someone who just wants to get an iphone at a cheap monthly price, i thought this was ok.

£25*24 months = £600. The same call contract on a SIM-only basis is £10 a month, so £240 for the same term. This makes the phone £360, about 50% more than a second-hand refurb should be.

In short, cold.

So you suggest that nobody takes out a mobile phone contract again?

Hot from me.

No he's saying the actually mobile contract is worth £240 and your basically paying £360 for a old model refurb iphone.

Not sure how you made that leap, but, no, I'm suggesting that this deal is crap.

Although, if you want to get onto the subject of phone contracts, yes, I do definitely think that you can manipulate yourself a better deal by buying contract and phone separately. I did so myself, and my total cost of my two year 500 min / text, 500MB, 4000 3-to-3 minutes contract is £160, to which I chose to add an Orange San Francisco, at an extra £80. £240 for five times (or up to 45 times) more minutes and the same data allowance than your deal, but with what is in many ways a better phone, for £360 less. Or I could've chosen any of the high-end Android phones and still saved money, particularly once that feeble 100 minute of your contract had run out.

O2 useless 3g coverage and a crap deal, three are doing a better deal on this phone and they have a good 3g coverage

I always buy my phone/Sim seperately. Works out much cheaper - you just need the lump sum available for the phone. For example. This is £600 - I paid £500 for my iPhone 4 (This is 3GS), plus a TMobile sim only contract special deal, £7.50 for 600mins/500texts/unlimited internet

Over two years this would work out at £680 based on that tariff and a 16gb phone.

14 mths ago i had a 3g on a 18 mth contract 600 mins unlimited texts unlimted internet for £28 a mth off o2 so i dnt think that is a good deal being as the iphone 5 is out soon

i'll wait for the iphone 5, my upgrade is due July,

£25 a month isn't cheap, especially as the contract provides less than most £10 sim only plans.

terrible deal for old technology..it is bad deal even for an iphone 4 considering a newer phone will be out in few months

i'll goe for any network but i'll not with O2 again their 3g is sh*t,

Worst ever deal that I've EVER seen here, yes even worser than that Charlie Sheen Signed Print...

wow who turned the heating off?

100 minutes...

worser...........

Seriously?

Ok so i seem to be getting universally shot down for this deal huh
Could someone point me to a better deal based on the following criteria-

Phone must be any iphone and free
Monthly cost less than 26 pound
Network must be Vodafone or O2 as the rest have **** coverage
Company must have a high street presence
12 month guarantee of course

I will put off buying pending all your wonderful alternatives


guv

Quite possibly the worst mobile phone deal ever posted. (seriously)

If you want actual buying advice, read up the thread and see what me and Xeroc said. If you want an obsolete second-hand phone at a bad price which you'll barely be able to use thanks to that disastrously puny amount of call allowance, carry on as you were.

get a iphone4 on ebay
http://****.co.uk/App…rue#ht_500wt_1156
and sim only deal with cashback and you would have a better phone and probably cheaper

Like I said it works out cheaper and a much better deal to do this:

Phone must be any iphone and free

Buy a A grade iPhone 3GS from CeX (~£300)

Monthly cost less than 26 pound

Buy a T-Mobile contract that is currently available on deal @ £7.50 for 12months

Network must be Vodafone or O2 as the rest have **** coverage

TMobile is one of the best networks in the UK...and has one of the widest coverages.. I don't know what you're talking about.
Company must have a high street presence

Yup

12 month guarantee of course

Yup

...Total cost over 12months = £390...
Yes you have to pay out a lump sum of £300, but the phone is yours, you're not tied in for 24months, and you have a much better tariff (600mins vs. 100, 500 texts vs. Unlimited plus a flexible booster (internet, unlim. texts)

Now tell me that you think you're deal is a good deal.

Cold.

Unless I'm missing something this isn't for a 3GS but a 3G which is even older...

your right when you click on the link it is a 3g....and correct me if i am wrong but apple are now not rolling out updates for the 3g making some of the newer apps unavailable to you

That's correct, Apple no longer provides iOS updates for the 3G, and you're right 3GS is an extra £119

brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Pass me coat love....

rip off
better to buy a second hand phone from

..well anywhere

You are better off buying one from Ebay or cash converters (with warrenty) than paying that price on a contract. I see what your saying although id personally not want an old model iphone, think of the battery life too, after a year it will last you less than 24 hours if it was brand new never mind a 2nd rate one it has been refurbed with (possibly)
