Re: Apple Event Megathread 2018

From £750 to £1500 for a phone I think Apple are taking the Michael and it’s obscene..  

 

think my iPhone X will be the last iPhone I have as I’m not paying that much for a phone....

O2's relationship with Apple
 
 

Just wondering if they have one any more ?

 

Apple Watch 4 - Nope - EE and Vodafone

Apple iPhone Xs Dual Sim (eSim) - Nope - EE and Vodafone

 

I love Refresh and dont want to leave, but seriously, I feel like I'm with a 2nd tier / class provider.

Re: Apple Event Megathread 2018

Especially when UK is paying 30% more than USA
USA pay $1099...
UK cost equivalent $1434

No USA tax is that much, nor is our vat.


the above Gold badge is not official and as such does not represent O2 community's officially sanctioned winners badges. They are blue, I made this gold myself, because I wanted to, after 4 years of writing the best reviews seen on these here forums, I decided to take that status, and adopt it into my own coloured badge.
To clarify. I changed the colour and added the years, O2 community admin, did not. Please don't be confused.

Sell your X any pay off O2 - It sahould be worth more than your settlement. you'll lose money if you wait to Refresh.

Re: Apple Event Megathread 2018

Your working the FX the wrong way round, $1099 is £842 using XE. Add VAT to £842 and you get £1,010. Then remember that banks don’t give you mid-market, but a marginalised rate and you’ll find that ££1,099 isn’t that far away.

Re: Apple Event Megathread 2018

I think you you need to check this first regarding the Dual sim use on the IPhone. 

 

@AngryWarlock

Just to make you aware before everyone starts getting carried away.

 

Dual Sim is only supported by EE for the esim and not Vodafone U.K.

Re: Apple Event Megathread 2018

Also Dual sim isn’t available straight away, this will be activated later this year with a software update.

Also so before people start thinking that Dual Sim will be available if you buy from carriers. 

 

E sim can be disabled by carriers when you purchase a iPhone from them.

 

note that the esim facility on the iPads is disabled by o2in the U.K.
