      Re: New iPhone 5

      Just been having a look at the iPhone 5 on Apple's website and see it starts at 529!

      Do people really pay that? I don't mind paying a bit upfront and then the rest over a contract but 529 just to be sim free?!

      Yes, many people do, myself included. It you sit down and work out the total cost over a 24 month period, buying the handset unlocked and using a SIM only tariff, it usually works out cheaper than getting one on contract (and you can be talking a hundred quid or so cheaper too). Plus, all networks offer 30 day SIM only contracts so you also have the flexibility to switch networks as and when tariff prices or services change.

      Whilst you may be paying a higher up-front cost for the handset, your monthly tariff costs are lower on SIM only. You can get unlimited calls/texts/data now on SIM only for around 20 a month.

      Re: New iPhone 5

      Is the 4G going to be compatible with the UK version and not like the 4G iPad_3 which does not work in UK? While I am on it, what size of file can you download to the iPhone5? Is being able to download data very quickly really required on a phone?

      Yes the iPhone 5 LTE will work with the UK EE version of LTE (1800mhz band 3 voice and data) but not the proposed O2 or Vodafone LTE as they are planning LTE in different bands (2600mhz and 800 mhz) neither of which the iPhone 5 supports, so essentially the iPhone 5 LTE is exclusive to EE in the UK (although it will work and be sold on all other UK 3G mobile networks)

      Hmmm... I'm with T-Mobile/Orange/EEEEEE.... and if the 4S is anything to go by it was between 150 - 249 for the handset as I recall depending on your monthly spend over a 2 year contract.

      My current contract is 20 a month and includes unlimited data, 250 texts (which I never use) and 250 minutes of inclusive calls of which I use a max of 100 minutes a month.

      I guess it all boils down to which network you want to use and what their offers are, but I have a feeling if you buy wisely, even with a contract it can work out very close to buying the phone outright.

      Now free iPads on a data contract on the other hand can work out very expensive from what I read!

      My mate paid 500 for his 16GB iTard 4 and his isn't SIM free because he didn't buy it from Apple he bought it from carphone warehouse. As soon as he put his O2 SIM in and connected to iTunes the server locked it to O2.

      Re: New iPhone 5

      i bought my iphone outright from apple. my contract with orange is a business one 30 day one. i pay around 9p/m for 200mins, 150 texts and 800Mb of data.

      i dont even use all that as most of my calls are work related and they pay for that.

      I sat down and worked out what was better for me over the 12months and getting a contract for 40p/m to get the phone at a cheaper price was not worth it as i would use the bundle. I kept my last iPhone, the 3GS, for over 2 years anyway
