I am getting tempted by an iPhone, I know they aren't an amazing spec but I quite like the interface etc....

Was wondering, is there any way at all you can convince o2 to change the tarrif on that or is it set in stone?

I don't want an 18 month contract, I don't want 600 minutes and I don't want to pay 35 a month

3g ones will be out very soon.

There is a loophole that you don't need to take out a contract.

o2 employees are currently being given iphones at 99 quid, I would have to assume to get rid of stock before the 3g one comes out but if you can find somebody who works for them thats the cheapest way.

also comes with 100 solid cashback.

any why?... because apple are about to release their next gen with 3g etc.
Its a nice looking phone, but touch screen is just hard work imo, you cant touch the buttons quickly like you would on a normal phone, plus you gotta have clean hands

If you buy one then you have to get a contract with it don't you?

IE I couldn't buy one for 160 to use with my existing sim without having to sign up for the 18 month 35 contract

I'm doubtfull of o2 making such a glaringly obvious mistake tbh.

I'd put money on them trying to get rid of stock at as high a price as they can before the new one comes out.

its not a mistake, your buying the phone and its ures to do what you want with, they say you have to sign upto a contract via itunes, but the software lets u bypass that and just use a normal sim

theyve reduced it down to 169, which i was kicking myself cos i cudnt wait a few weeks even though i knew they would reduce it, it wont come down farther than that

iphone > n95 > viewty > k850i/g600

ive had them all and the iphone walks it

It sounds wierd that, why not sort the contract out whilst in the store

What happens when you switch it on without activation?

Apple/O2 are crazy to think people wouldn't find a way around it!

There's no chance apple and o2 left that open, especially considering o2 sell phones.

I think they have pulled a fast one.
