    I'm making this thread because I need advice on which provider to go for, I'm currently with EE and have been for the last 2 years since they most probably exploited me in a crappy contract for the Iphone 5c. The contract has ended and they've messaged me about upgrading but I'm thinking of switching to another provider.

    What would you advice if I'm looking for a new Iphone and some pretty good internet? I'm looking for a cheap option with a contract that doesn't last as long as a mortgage

    I'm not sure if you understood, I believe he means he bought his iPhone (so basically he paid full price for the iPhone i.e 'pay as you go') and the contract he has is sim only.

    If you did understand, then for £15 you can easily get some really good sim only deals - 3 are decent.

    its so funny when no one answers your thread :mmm:

    EE are a complete rip off, my mum pays £40/month for an iPhone 5C that has a malfunctioning volume button.

    I've heard O2 are pretty good.

    The iphone7 is due to come out before year's end, I think...maybe hold out for it, and then change your plan? I'm tired of contracts. It's not fair to be locked into a 2 year contract for a phone! And then the service sucks and I'm stuck. >_<

    You have loads of gems, you're just not posting at the right time.

    Stop purchasing iPhones, get a worthwhile phone that is worth the money such as a Samsung.

    I haven't heard much about Vodafone, so don't know if that's a good or bad thing ... you wimp.

    Android is pretty good in the first few months then it starts to act really slow and freeze badly..

    You know I never get your notifications :lolwut: I just happen to be scrolling and then BAM, you've apparently quoted me.

    Then why are you complaining omg? :hmmm:

    I know what you mean. I'm constantly clearing out my internet caches, and constantly having to clear running apps that I'm sure I'll definitely not be using in that precise moment. It's an alright phone though, for what it's worth (pretty cheap).
