    Hi guys,
    Cut to the chase - I'm desperate for an IPhone 4S. Unfortunately I'm not earning, and so my parents are paying my contract for me (which I'm very greatful for)
    Anyhow, my current contract is coming to an end (£21, Blackberry 8900, unlimited texts, 100 minutes and 50gb of roaming data)
    The rents said I can get the iPhone on the condition that the contract is between £20 - £30, which is pretty rare I know!
    I require:
    Unlimited texts
    100+ minutes
    And a fair amount of data

    I've been looking for ages and can't find a contract on any network which meets my requirements, so I've come to you guys to see if you know of any?

    Many thanks,
    Steve

    Unless your folks are prepared to stump up a very substantial up front cost fee, in terms of an iPhone, you want to think less 4s and more 3GS. I know that's not what you want to read, but I'd be surprised to be proved wrong.

    O2 I think is your best bet as they offer unlimited texts starting on 200 mins contracts. £27 a month on a 24 month contract gets you 500MB data, but you should be able to use the spare £3 to upgrade your data once your contract has started if 500MB is not enough for you. It's £249.99 upfront cost though. You could get the 4 on the same contract for £99.99 upfront.

    Check at iPhone 4S deals, im pretty sure you can get what you are looking for. todays best deal for 100 mins, Unlimited texts, 500MB data, 24 months = £21.50 per month + £139.99 handset cost

    In order to get a contract for the lower end of your budget, you may need to pay for the handset (e.g. £150), however if you work out the average cost per month (displayed on Best Mobile Contracts), this would still fit within your £20-30 price bracket.

    Hope this helps

    I'd wait until the iPhone 5 which should be out in a few months. Even if you don't want it, the price of the 4 should drop meaning you'll get a better deal, but still have the option of the 5 and you should think about it as its going to be decent.

    I bought one outright (well, on my credit card, 0& APR on new purchases for 6 months), but there was method in my madness.

    I have a BlackBerry contract with unlimited texts and unlimited data for £20.43 per month that's up for renewal soon - which in itself is very good but I took it out in December 2010 and equivalent contracts are cheaper now. I'm going to claim I'm "very happy with the service I'm getting and I'd like to stay on the same tarrif, but ideally I'd like to be paying £5-£10 less per month". They don't know I have an iPhone y'see, although it'll be difficult trying to convince them I'm still happy with a BlackBerry Curve 8520 after two years and I'd like to keep it for a further two :p:

    If I can get it down to between £10-£15 when I renew, over the course of two years I'll be saving a hell of a lot compared to people who just took out an iPhone contract at £30+ per month.

    You'll be needing to get yourself a microsim cutter then.

    Call O2. I managed to get the 4S for free, for £27 a month for 400 minutes, Unlimited Texts and 500mb Data. We rang them up after being with them for a year, and stated we were looking for the 4S on a similar deal and were willing to look elsewhere but were wondering what they could offer, and they came back to us with that deal
