Choose the best iPhone contract deal

Picking the best iPhone deal can be tricky. With several different iPhone models to choose from and lots of different places to buy them, where do you even start? Do you pick a cheap monthly bill, an iPhone plan with no upfront cost, or an iPhone with unlimited data? Well, broadbandchoices is here to help. Here’s our guide to getting yourself a new iPhone deal this month.

iPhone X

Apple's special anniversary edition flagship is the most impressive iPhone yet. With a huge, 5.8-inch screen that reaches right to the edges of the phone, it's quite something to look at, and there's a lot going on under the hood as well. A new A11 Bionic processor means it's fast and powerful, and you'll get a frankly amazing dual-lens camera on the back too. And on the front, there are facial recognition sensors so you can use Face ID.

Deal-wise, you'll want a plan with plenty of data - perhaps even an unlimited data plan - so you don't have to hold back on using this wonderful phone. Because it’s the latest model, we’re afraid it’s also the most expensive - but don’t worry, there are ways to get it at a lower price, such as by getting a refurbished model, going through a reseller, or simply by choosing a plan on a budget network.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are the newest iPhones of them all, released in September 2017. Thanks to an improved design, these are the only iPhones (along with the iPhone X) capable of wireless charging, and they've got those powerful A11 Bionic chips on board. Wonderfully, you can even get them both with 256GB internal memory - more than enough room for all your apps and files.

If you're looking at buying the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus then we recommend that you go for a plan that allows you to get the most out of the handset. We recommend a large data allowance so you can watch lots of movies and videos - and you can get that for cheaper than you would with an iPhone X.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

Want top iPhone specs at a slightly lower price? Have a look at the previous generation of Apple's phones - the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. They haven't got wireless charging, but what they do have are HD screens, speedy processors, and the same 12MP cameras. They're water-resistant too, a feature you won't get with any iPhones older than this.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

Prefer an iPhone with a standard headphone jack? You can’t do much better than these models - the 6s and 6s Plus. Both look much the same as the iPhone 7 and 8, though with some very slightly skimpier specs. Still, with the impressive cameras, Apple Pay, and most recent version of iOS, you really won’t notice the difference.

iPhone SE

The brilliant thing about the iPhone SE is that it's essentially got the guts and specs of an iPhone 6 in the body of a 5 - and an old-style, smaller phone means it's a lot cheaper than a flagship. It's got Apple Pay, a 12MP camera, and decent battery life, all in the nice four-inch frame.

The best deal on an iPhone SE is one that keeps costs down but gives you enough allowance to put those specs to work. The best part is, it’s a cheaper phone, so you can afford to get a higher allowance for a low price.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Despite being a few generations old now, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are still fab handsets as well. With a slick design and HD displays, you’ll get something good no matter which size you choose. A few features aren’t quite as high-powered as later models - the rear camera has just an 8MP lens, and the battery is smaller, for instance - but the iPhone 6 still runs super smoothly.

iPhone 5s

Want a smaller iPhone for a really low price? The iPhone 5s may be the one for you. It has just a four-inch screen - same as the newer iPhone SE - and is powered by a dual-core Apple A7 chip and 1GB of RAM. Unfortunately it doesn’t have Apple Pay, but it does have everything else, including the latest operating system.

When you pick a contract on an iPhone 5s, we recommend going for one with a larger storage size - and a nice bit of 4G data, of course.

iPhone 5c

For something cheap and cheerful, take a look at the iPhone 5c. It’s another dinky four-inch number, and is available in fun bright colours like green and pink. Although it’s an older model, and a low-priced one at that, some of the specs aren’t bad - it has an 8MP rear camera, up-to-date iOS, and dual-core processors. It also doubles up as being the perfect first phone for your kids.

  1. If I switch, can I keep my mobile number?

    Yes you can. All you have to do is ask your old network for your Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) before your contract is up. Then give the PAC - likely a nine-digit number - to your new provider and you’ll usually be able to use your old number within a working day.

    For more info, see our guide: Can I keep my mobile number?

  2. How do I switch mobile contracts?

    First, pick a new mobile contract by comparing different packages on our site, and click through to sign up to one that looks good.

    Then, simply contact your current provider to cancel, and switch to the new contract. Providers should walk you through the process when you sign up.

  3. Can I use my mobile phone abroad?

    It is possible to use your phone abroad, but before you can do so you may have to activate roaming with your network operator. Different countries incur different charges, but your operator should send you a message about roaming prices upon your arrival. And remember, unlike at home, you may be charged for receiving calls as well as making them.

    If you're travelling within the EU, you can use your usual monthly allowance at no extra cost - whatever network you're with.

    See our guide to using your phone abroad for more info.
