    I think i read an article once asserting that the Iphone costs Apple about £180.

    It's simply premium pricing though, just think of all the idiots who think it's top quality.

    Once Google finally make a great, comparable phone i imagine they will blow Apple and Samsung away with their pricing policy.
    Yeh, the iPhone 4s cost apple more than the iPhone 5 to build/manufacturer.

    I am looking on My02 at the moment, as I can upgrade my phone NOW!

    I want an iPhone 5 or a Samsung Galaxy 4, however the latter is not out yet (when is it released?) and the iPhone is sold out in black, which means only white is available.

    White iPhone?

    Anyway, handset free = £42 per month, with unlimited minutes/texts + 1GB data. Is that a good deal for an iPhone 5?

    I pay £30pm for unlimited minutes and texts with 1GB data on EE, handset was £60 though. I also have the white iPhone and I adore it, so much nicer than the black one

    NO NO NO NO NO!

    (sorry, bargain hunter kicking in)

    You can get the same deal for £27pm as a new customer and £99 upfront.

    Plus you need to ask yourself if you actually need unlimited mins and 1GB data. Also ask if a different network can do a better deal (they can)

    I don't know anything about phones.

    My contract with 02 ran out last summer, and have been rolling on monthly ever since. I would prefer it if I just stayed with 02, never had a problem with them.

    Why not consider getting a retention deal from O2 (by ringing them up and getting them to price match the deal they currently do via mobiles.co.uk

    For example, why not consider the HTC One which is a great phone which you can get on this tariff from O2.

    600 Mins
    Unl Texts
    750mb Data

    £22pm + £50 upfront for HTC One.

    You can get an iPhone for £27pm and £99 upfront but the HTC One is worth it so much more.
