Oh yes.... 3G the day it came out, missed the 3GS out, then every iPhone at launch from the 4 (the last time an iPhone was a world-changer in my view). All on O2 BTW Smiley Happy

Makes sense order online @Anonymous I wouldn't fancy queueing for days at the store when you can have it delivered!

My thoughts exactly. Plus with me already buying the iPhone, I can go onto a pay as you go tariff or a sim only tariff, which are cheaper, as you are only paying for the call, text, data allowance, rather than the phone, call, text, data allowance.

 

I tend to stop on pay as you go now, as the network I'm with gives free boosts every three months, which makes the pay as you go tariff I'm on, better and better value the longer I stop on it, and also, if I did want to change networks, I can do so straight away as I'm not on a contract or have a locked to a network iPhone. Not for everybody, but I find it works best for me.

Re: iPhone 7 Launch - Plans?

Buying direct from the manufacturer is always the best way to go. I do the same, unlocked phone and so many options available to you with regards to network and tariff. Most of the regulars on here go the same route but it's not possible for everyone. That's when you have to make an informed choice and do the research, find the network with the best coverage for your needs because you are locked in. Many people just go for an eay option and regret it for months on end with no way of ending the contract unless paying a lump sum which they could have done to start with....

Re: iPhone 7 Launch - Plans?

When the iPad 2 came out i was dead against it and bought a Motorola Xoom. After a week it ended up in a cupboard gathering dust and I bought an iPad 2 anyway. Since then I had the iPad 3, mini, Air, mini 2, Air 2, mini 4, and now the 9.7 iPad Pro. Phone-wise, I've not thought about moving at all. Android phones may have twice the specs, but Android needs twice the grunt to run half-decent. Apple for me Smiley Happy
