Well my phone was £600(€750) I got it a week after it's official release in the first 5 countries but now apple ireland is selling unlocked ones for €599 and €699. I'm on pay as you go on 02 and I only spend 20 a month to get my free texts but it's cheaper to stay on pay as you go and get the unlocked phone than getting into a contract with a carrier because the price plans are crazy money.Great thanks for the information. Do you save a lot of money if you buy it in the UK compared to Ireland. A couple of other things if you have time to answer them do you know which is the better option financially contract or sim free. I am with vodafone at the moment on pay as you go where my monthly spend would be roughly €30 to €40 and the phone is used for both personal and business.
No problem. No your better off apple.ie if your going for the simfree one. I have no problems with my phone and I love it. With regards the price plan i think the phone works out at well over a thousand euro but do some research into the price plans and see what works best for you.Thanks dast1g. So it is not any cheaper to buy it from the UK? With regard tp buying the phone sim free I was hoping that the contract phone would be the better deal as I might find it a little tight financially to buy it at the moment. I will probably wait another month or so to save a bit more. How are you finding the coverage and are you having any problems with the whole antenna reception thing?
