Do you have a contract on about 40 a month. Also do you regret spending so much on a phone? Also who here still uses payg rather than a contract phone. thanks

I have a £65/month contract for an iPhone 6 Plus, and I have no regrets at all.

Pay as you go is so much better value. Pay monthly rip you off with interest, and the tariffs for what you get are much more expensive compared to much better PAYG tarrifs, e.g. with Three and giffgaff.

£539 for a 6 at the Apple Store + £15/month PAYG Three with unlimited data is much better value, imo.

I got my iPhone 5 on contract in December 2012 for about £35 (which rose to £38+ during my contract). I do think that was far too much but I was sick of having cheap phones that never lasted so I decided to treat myself. I still have my 5 two and a half years later but with a PAYG sim so I'm spending very little on it now.
Might upgrade when the new iPhone comes out but that mainly depends on prices and whether or not I'm still working.

I had an iphone but it broke and died. I'm still paying £40ish a month though. Need to get a replacement soon.

I have a Samsung Galaxy A5, and I'm on PAYG, currently with Giffgaff. I pay £20 per month for 2,000 minutes, unlimited texts, and unlimited data. I think it's an excellent deal, which will be sweetened with 4G from the 2nd September onwards.
