Due to the fact that O2 contracts are rubbish and you can no longer get unlimited texts which i NEED i have been forced to come up with an alternative. Option 1. Pay & Go Iphone 3GS 16gb = £440.40 Simplicity simcard @ £19.58 per month on the 12 month contract gives you 800 minutes + 1600 txts if ordered online. You also get a free bolt on with the simcard, choose Unlimited web bolt on which DOES cover 3G internet despite what some people on here have been saying. Over 12 months this would amount to: 19.58 x 12 + £440.40 = £675.36 Advantages: - On this tariff your getting, unlimited internet access, 800 minutes/1600 txts per month. - You miss out on wifi, however a Pay & Go Iphone comes with 12 months free wifi access. Even with the Simplicity sim in, when you try to connect to a wifi hotspot etc it asks for your mobile number, put in the number of the PAYG sim (even though its not in the phone) and it works, you get free wifi too! - Works out cheaper overall. - Your not tied into an 18 month contract, meaning that in 12 months time if Apple release another new iphone, you can get it immediately. - You could sell the iphone when the new one comes out for what, £200-300? So it could work out effectively costing you about £300 for a years use of an iphone. Disadvantages: -Is a bit more hassle. - You don't get visual voicemail or internet tethering. Is all of this correct? Are there any other things i'd be missing out on by doing this, someone told me that i wouldn't get 3G internet only GPRS/EDGE? Can anyone out there think of any problems i may encounter/cause by doing this or will it pretty much function as any other iphone out there.
