WANTED iPhone 16BG Black

    Hi all,

    I am looking for any deals on the iPhone. I know the tariffs are fixed by O2 so I am looking for someone who will give me a PS3 or something to sweeten the deal...

    Thanks all....



    i dont think you will get a deal for an iphone with a free ps3 bud

    note the fact you said ps3 i said i dont think you would get a ps3 i didn't say you wouldn't get anything

    I honestly very much doubt that any place will offer a sweetener for taking an iPhone contract. At a guess I'd have to say that O2 & Apple will have agreed to maintain the price level for both the phones and the contract terms. Simply because its a prestige piece of electronics and very much in demand...but obviously many people will want it at lower prices and some will want sweeteners for paying the full whack......

    While many other phones on the market hold their value for a short time and then you see the sweetener deals coming along shortly after their release, its an entirely different ball game with the iPhone.

    I've kept track and checked the contract and phone prices for many months now and they've hardly varied at all, £10 at most and no offers on brand new iphone contracts.

    Personally, I think its a case of whoever takes an iphone contract, its one thats viewed as an instant sale, rather than a "what can I offer to tempt you" if you know what I mean. The people who buy it have made up their minds and not only want to part with their cash, but are certain about it without condition, and to me, these are the customers that Apple are targeting.

    I'd love to get one, but I can think of many other things I'd rather buy with my money than an iPhone. Should the right offer come along tho, then I'd also be in there! lol :-D

    O2 do occasionally offer some sort of 'sweetener'. For a few weeks they offered a free iPod Touch with the iPhone. These deals are few and far between though so I wouldn't go holding your breath. Good luck though...

    Yeah i heard about the iTouch and asked about it. Apparently O2 had a shed load of 1st Gen iTouches that they couldn't shift so they just gave them away... This deal will not happen again as they are all gone!

    My contract doesn't run out until April so I guess i'll just have to wait...
