    Basically my contract runs out with Vodafone on September 2nd and i'm looking to leave them because they're frankly quite rubbish... plus I've been with them for over 10 years and couldn't offer me a good deal But I have to basically tell them that I'm leaving by August 2nd.

    I'm looking to get an iPhone 6s and so far the best deal that I've found is with Tesco. Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they any good or should I try and find a deal with EE or O2 etc?

    It is so frustrating as I don't mind paying up to £100 up front, but I'd rather the monthly fee was down to £30-40. Unfortunately, they love to get you on a long contract with high monthly fees

    So any advice on my situation TSRians? I need you :bigsmile:



    P.S. I know this is in the wrong forums, but oh well - I'm a hardnut

    what phone do you have currently? Would you instead considering trading it in and buying the phone upfront and stick it on a sim only contract. I traded in my old iphone 4s at the apple store and got £70 for it, then bought an SE and kept my current contract (i had 11 months off and vodafone buy out price was horrendous so buying the phone was cheaper :P) . Also the SE's cheaper and reasonably similar spec to the 6S apart from being smaller

    Sorry for the belated reply! I currently have the iPhone 5c, which is so bad because of the storage capacity Literally having to delete more and more apps each week!

    Hmmm I suppose that is an approach I could try.. I have been tempted to get the SE instead because that is a lot cheaper, but I kind of want a bigger phone! It's annoying that my contract ends then because the new iPhone will announced soon so it may see a drop in price anyway

    I've just realized that i wrote the wrong iphone, i had a 5c :P . The SE is a major improvement in comparison so far (16gb seems to be more than enough so far), the cameras and touch id is brilliant. I much prefer this size to the 6s (as my hands are tiny:P) too.

    I've got my new phone (iPhone 6s, 12GB data + unlim. everything else inc. tethering) with Three after leaving Vodafone because they're bloody awful. It cost me £49 upfront for the handset and for 6 months it's £24 then £48 for 18 months. Hope that maybe helps? Dad uses Tesco and says they're OK but things can be a bit patchy with them sometimes.

    Also, moving this to Mobile Phones smh.

    I say new phone because I dropped and broke my old phone whilst horrifically drunk. Such a good role model.

    The decision is too hard I have quite big hands though or at least long fingers!

    I'd recommend EE. My nerdy tenancies found that EE has the best UK coverage for non-euro phones, meaning that your iPhone has better coverage everywhere, including in Europe.

    I'm no longer with them for other reasons, but when I was with them I had no problem. Support were usually competent.

    I'd also recommend EE (that is who I'm with at the moment) because they have a very good network - they have the most 3G/4G coverage out of all the operators, and the data speeds are very fast in most areas too.

    O2 and Vodafone tend to have a lot more 2G only areas, though they are steadily improving.
