UK Carriers announce iPhone 5 pricing – full breakdown

Today, all the major UK networks opened their online stores for pre-order business, each announcing their own price plans. So, instead of you having to shop around and find the best deal for you, I’ve compiled them all in to one article right here. There’s nothing worse than flipping between all the different sites. So, I’m hopeful that this proves to benefit you.

In terms of value for money, it’s hard to look past Three who offer the 32GB iPhone 5 on £34 and £36 monthly plans for an upfront fee of just £89. The same monthly price point on the other carriers will cost you around £200 for the same phone. Obviously, it comes down to coverage. Thankfully, I live in an area where each network offers relatively good reception. Check them out below, and let me know who you went with in the comments below.

O2

Vodafone

Orange

T-mobile


Three

 

Coverage?

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam Great work on this!

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell Took a little time, but worth it. I hate having to look through each site to find each deal.

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam You’re not buying unlocked, then?

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell Yeah I am. Ordered it at 9am. 32GB Black. Compiled the prices for the UK folk to be nice ;-)

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam Nice one! So will you have to wait two weeks, or did you get your order in on time?

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell My status says “processing” but shipping on 21st. ;-)

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam Cool!

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell If the status changes, I’m going to cancel and go buy it next week in a store.

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell Have you ordered, or are you getting it on contract?

  • TiP_Cam

    The site only offers 24 months and 12 months for the iPhone. 

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam I actually got my order in at 8 a.m. on the dot! 32GB white.

  • RaduTanasescu

    You wouldn’t happen to have news from Romania? :)

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell I tried at 8:04, no joy. So, I put my phone down and waited. Wasn’t going to stress out like last year. lol

  • TiP_Cam

     @RaduTanasescu Hehehe. Sadly not. I don’t know anything about Romanian carriers, so it’d be foolish of me to try. 

  • killianbell

    @TiP_Cam Haha. I was really lucky I think. I just opened up the Apple Store app at 8 and my order went straight through — it was simple.

  • TiP_Cam

    @killianbell Yeah. I used the app too. Learned that from last time out. Sailed through at 9.

  • jack_peacock

    it’s worth a mention that on t mobile with the £36 plan you get 2000 minutes plus unlimited t-mobile to t-mobile calls 

  • CantDriveNaked

    But t-mobile and orange are the only carriers offering 4G arent they? untill next year when 3 might get some
