Apple i-Phone - anyone know of any deals anywhere?!

I would LOVE one of these but they are sooo pricey. Wondered if anyone knew of any offers anywhere especially if they come bundled with any other goodies. Would be great to find an offer!

Thanks.

Hi,

I am thinking of getting one as well - are you wanting it pay&go or on a contract?

No discounts on contract I could find - Best is to go for £45 Quidco via Carphone Warehouse. Even couldn't get a discount on upgrade when asking for a PAC a couple of days ago..... not that I was really after one but thought I'd suss it out in case of a good offer.

This is the problem when a phone is only available on one network - a monopoly occurs.

Cheapest without a contract will be someone selling on here or a site like this. Then it will be Ebay.

I managed to get one today but still had to fork out £200

if you know anyone who works for the corporate partners, then you can enjoy 30% off

It's so pricey.... I guess the alternative is to go for the new Blackberry or similar? I just want the Apple one cos I use an i-Pod and i-Tunes etc....

Isn't there a "grey market" for the i-Phone?!

Let us know how you get on - hope you get a bargain.

My wife is getting me one for xmas but they are expensive, but you got to be careful when buying from someone other than a retailer.

If they are offering you one 'too' cheaply, approach with caution...

Also why are they PMing you and not replying in this thread??

Well, I'm not sure, but I am presuming it's all kosher. It's French I think but they can unblock it for me so all the functions work - honestly, it's a bargain........ my birthday (Tuesday) and Xmas pressie all in one! Anything else I can ask the seller?! :?

The glofiish X800 is a comparitable alternative, come complete with windows mobile, tom tom, excel, word etc. 3G. Kit includes leather belt pouch, spare stylus.
They are £345 new, but are going for about £200 on ebay.
You can plug in a bluetooth satnav receiver and use it in car as a fully working tomtom satnav.

I have got one, and it's sim free. It's not really my cup of tea, so may post it for sale or exchange in the near future.

P.S. It's not suitable for me, because I work in a very dirty environment, so worried it wil get broke.

Hi Euroanchor - thank you for this info. If my current investigations into the i-Phone don't work out, I may contact you.... thing is, it's the i-Phone I really like cos of the i-Tunes, etc functionality. Plus it's gorgeous!

:thumbsup:Just to let you all know that I have agreed to buy the iphone that was offered to me. Will let you know how I get on. Keep your fingers crossed that it arrives once I've made the payment.... Thanks very much for your help so far. Hopefully I will be in receipt of it this coming week for my birthday! :gift:

Hope it arrives and you don't get ripped off - especially on your bday!

OK, so it's now 7th December and despite trying to contact the scammer (sorry, seller) of the phone, I've had no response. I can only deduce I've been well and truly SCAMMED. I hope that his makes you guys think twice before going for something that seems too good to be true. My fault for being gullible and trusting in human nature I guess but shame on you, the person who's got my money! They used a fake eBay ID, so it's with Paypal now as that's how I paid. I will inform the mods here of this person's HotUKDeals ID so they are aware....

I'm so sorry to hear that, I hoped it would all be ok for you but did sound a bit dodgy with them approaching you via PM.
There is one way to get a litte discount which is if you have an mbna amex credit card - like virgin atlantic card - then go to the mbna lifestyle rewards website and buy love2shop vouchers at a 7% discount and they can be used at carphone warehouse. Also be wary of buying off ebay, there are a small number of people who sell the phone, wait the 3 months so that you can't put a paypal dispute in and then register the phone as lost/stolen and the phone gets blocked and they get a new one on insurance.
I hope you get it sorted and your money back.

Thank you. Looks like I should get my money back through Paypal... fingers crossed...
