three
42pcm + 99

o2
17pcm + 699.99
or any combination up to
42 + 79

vod
38 + 199

EE
26 + 349

it seems possible you can't afford one.

they all cost about 1100

i don't think there is any value to be extracted from a 5s contract.

a galaxy s4 will save you 350
a galaxy S3 will save you 600

i don't quite know what you mean by the N5 being a budget phone. but it will certainly be cheaper.

i don't know your financial position. but the iPhone is going to cost you.

I agree that the prices are quite steep and I am a bit disapointed by how high they are. I have owned iPhones for the past 4 years but don't think I can justify the price of getting the 5S.

When I got my 32GB 4S on the Three One Plan just under 2 years ago it was 35 a month, plus 189 upfront working out at 1029 for the 2 years. I also got 110 cashback through Topcashback bringing the total cost down to 929 approx (no longer available).

A few months into the contract the cost went up a little, around 1.25 a month so even taking this into consideration I paid no more than 950 for the 2 years.

I was hoping that the pricing for the 5S would be along similar lines.

If I upgrade to the 32GB 5S on the One Plan I am looking at 46 x 24 + 99 = 1203 for 2 years.

I could reduce this to 987 by compromising and taking the 16GB model, and reducing the plan to ultimate internet 500. I would of course lose the tethering.

So as they say on Dragon's Den, I'm out.

I will probably get a high end Android phone such as the HTC One which would come in at 893 for 2 years without having to compromise on storage, and tethering and minutes.

Three have the 5S for 37 pm and 99 up front. I'm guessing that's for a 16gb though

You could perhaps look into iCloud so you could last on a 16GB model not sure how fair the prices are for that.

Is it worth getting the 5s on this deal?
Chitter Chatter are offering 1000 mins, unlimited texts and internet and you pay 249 for the phone....

I know its quiet pricey but if i was to buy the 32GB iphone 5s sim free and then go on a sim only of 15 a month, it will work out to be 989 since the phones costs 650, meaning i save like 50 in the end.

Does anyone know if you buy a 5s from a private seller if you need to the receipt to register the phone under the warranty or do you only need the phone id number on the box?

It depends if you are happy taking the hit one month then paying a lower monthly cost.

the contracts are all 40+ a month whilst with this deal its 32, albeit you stump up 250 for the phone
