    What fones do they have

    £7.50 Tesco

    £20 unlimited C&T 20Gig, £20 Unlimited C&T 16Gig, both EE and £13 Unlimited C&T 2gig Voda. Would be cheaper getting them all with EE as the second and third line on same contract would be £16, unfortunately all contract dates are different. All sim only contracts using iPhones.

    It is a lot aint it

    Well compared to what my house spends no X) but we budgeted for them so just make sure you can afford it before signing up as 2 years is a long time

    Kid on £12.50 ID basic contract I got bt £5 SIM only . Both on p 8 lite . I'd rather have the extra £62.50 a month in my pocket .equates to £750 a year . That's Christmas sorted

    Got mine iphone 5s free phone £15 month for 24 months 1000 mins 5000 texts and 4gb data thought was good deal as phone still £250 to buy outright and would cost me money topping it up with credit

    My son will have an iphone 5s that is a hand me down from when i upgraded my contract. Giving it him for xmas too expensive just to give for no reason!

    £49 a month on a shared plan split between me and my two teenagers. 20GB data, unlimited mins and unlimited texts on EE. Sim free deal as phones were bought outright.

    Bought doogee x5 pro £50 last Christmas. Got a giffgaff sim in which works out at £5pm. Some months we don't buy a Goddie bag though so that's about £50 a year to run. He wants more data so will cost more next year I guess.

    is the iphone 7 for you ?

    £10 pm month between us on GiffGaff, free G2G calls mean we dont have to pay much more than that, even when SWMBO calls her mum in China.

    Tesco @ 7.50 for the kids. Great service and website. Ability to remotely add airtime or data when they have been abroad has been a lifesaver. Both phones are unlocked o2 refresh items.

    Tesco @ £19 pm for Moto G4, 500mins, u/l texts and 2GB data

    What fones do they have
