Hi, I'm looking at buying the iPhone X or the XS


I haven't done this before so I'm looking for some advice.

Do i buy the phone outright, and then buy a sim for it, or do i buy the phone with the sim together? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Also, UCAS emailed me a sim called VOXI. Is this legit? There's a £10 a month deal that gives you unlimited data on social media, and it sounds too good to be true.

Can you afford to buy an iphone X without a sim? It'll cost you a huge amount of money- a contract is much more affordable for most people.

I can afford it, but my main concern is which is more worth it.

Have you heard anything about VOXI before?

Generally, if you can afford it, buying up front is a better deal- but you can work it out by adding up the contract costs and seeing if they come to more than the upfront cost of the phone plus your sim costs.

That sim is quite good but I'd look into it further it could be scam.

To move on to your question it could be more cost effective to buy a contract you'd still need to pay a bit for the phone and you'll still essentially pay of the price of the phone in the end but you pay it monthly the nice thing about that is that you'll be able to upgrade at a certain point so in a few years time you might have an iPhone XI instead of X.

However if you want to keep the phone for a while and can afford high outlay then there are some really good Sim only deals my brother has an O2 one that give him 20 gig a month not to mention unlimited texts and some minutes fo £20 a month.

VOXI is a branch of Vodafone aimed at young people because it gives free data for most social media apps

I’m with VOXI, don’t worry they are legitimate as a sub-brand of Vodafone. The plans are really good, they had a promotion which meant I’ve had unlimited data/calls for the whole of the last year for £10 a month. It’s been cut back to 6GB now with unlimited social media, but for some reason the counter never seems to change when I log in (not that I’m complaining!).
