I've got a 64gb iphone 6 (unlocked) going for the same price as schtoop's - £200

Replaced battery and home button 3 months ago. as the old home button broke the fingerprint no longer works (does in no way affect the functionality of the iphone). works really well still. cameras both fine etc

will get pictures for classifieds when my new phone arrives on fri

Get one from apple store and pay it off monthly over 20 months and put a cheap pay monthly sim in it.

i just checked and its 24 months?

and what kind of 'cheap pay monthly' deals is it?

got a link?

thinking quickly doing that seemed similar cost as signing a contract (but then dont get anything 'free')

usually get the best deals looking at HOTUKD (if you're UK based)

Or do it on the upgrade programme which includes Applecare+ and you have the option of exchanging for a new handset or upgrade after 12 months if you wanted to.
https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program

These are the cheapest ways to do it cos they interest free but you need to do it instore and both are over a 20 month period.

And as above find a cheap pay monthly sim on hukd with decent data allowance

I imagine come Dec it's gonna ramp up for Christmas. Might be worth checking the Apple site for pick-ups as they occasionally pop up on there.

Who's got the it so far? Rate it?

had a plus before and the 10 feels much more suitable size for me. screen is lovely. animogies barely used a week on. face recognizing works well.
feels like it could scratch in a strong wind so case feels like a must

Since upgrading to iOS 11 my 6s drains battery life super quickly. Anyone else noticed this?
