iPhone UK mobile price comparison

For Orange,O2,Vodafone the 18 month £30/month contract was always the cheapest (ignoring data/text/minutes usage)

For T-mobile the 24 month £25/month was the cheapest

I took the Carphone Warehose tariff comparison worked out the overall cost until the contract ends and you own the phone.

I then figured out how much they’re actually charging you a month versus just buying the thing yourself.

The actual cheapest total cost was the Vodafone 3GS 18 month £30/month deal at £670.
