Sorry, mate, I just thought you were bein' proper divvy Laughing out loud

Honestly have no idea then. Only other thing I can suggest is rebooting the phone and checking, if that fails book an appointment with an Apple "Genius".

My contract with t-mobile is up in march, which is ages away. But i think i've got a banging offer which might be worth taking up now.

I've got chance to use 20% off vodafone employee discount on iPhone's pay monthly plan. That makes the iPhone very very reasonable.

I've also noticed that quidco are doing £80 cashback on all vodafone iPhone contracts.

Surely i should be able to use both of these together? And if so, that's got to be the best deal out there.

iPhone 16gb 18 month contract, £32 a month 600 minutes, unlimited texts, 1gb internet, and the handset for £39 (with the quidco taken off it)

The monthly price goes down to £28 a month if i take out a 24month contract.

On the flip side, i could get the iphone 32gb 24month, £36 a month, 1200 minutes, unlimited texts, 1gb internet and the phone for £39.

I use barely any minutes, so for me, it'd be better to get a lower monthly tariff.

Thoughts?

I doubt you can get the employee discount and the quidco tbh
Don't go for a £40 a month 2 year contract, that's a lot of cash.

I think you can because the employee discount is a form you fill out after you've taken out the contract. They get back to you in a week and apply the discount. So if that's true, I can apply the quidco to begin with, then apply for the discount, surely?

I'm probably goning to do the 18month 16gb, £32 a month, 600minutes, handset at £119 (£39 after quidco) deal.

Careful with that if you're with a network that has capped data plans (Pretty much any network in the UK now I think, except 3 possibly?)

There's a program I used for this a few weeks back, can't remember the name off the top of my head, but I'll let you know when I get home.

Drop me a pm just so I remember.
