Upgrading to a new fresh iPhone 6 can be tough when looking at deals. We’ve picked the best ones that could potentially benefit you.
iPhone 6 deals on EE
The EE website is back up and running now, and all contracts for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are 24 months. The 16GB iPhone 6 is the cheapest contract of the lot, but beware of EE’s pricing structure. If you pay just £29.99 upfront (the smallest upfront cost currently available), you’ll have huge monthly payments of £50.99. This would cost£1,254 over two years, and would get you unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 2GB of 4G data.
However, you can cut that total cost of ownership by approximately £400 if you pay more for the phone upfront and have a lower monthly contract. The best deal we could find was paying £379.99 upfront and then £19.99 a month for 1GB of 4G data, unlimited texts and 1,000 minutes. This brings the total cost of the phone to £860 over two years, which is better value than buying the phone SIM-free and getting a SIM-only deal. If you can’t get that much together upfront, though, the next best deal is to pay£219.99 upfront and then £30.99 a month for the same amount of data, calls and texts. This will cost £964 over two years.
The 16GB iPhone 6 Plus has a similarly deceptive pricing structure. You can either pay £29.99 upfront and have monthly payments of £63.99 for unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 20GB of double speed 4G data, but this would bring total cost of ownership to£1,566 over two years. You’d also be able to use your minutes and texts in the EU, but double-speed 4G is only available in selected areas, so you’d have to check whether your location is covered to make it worthwhile.
Again, paying more for the phone upfront is worth your while if you want to cut costs in the long run. If you pay £479.99 upfront and then £19.99 a month, you can get 1GB of 4G data, unlimited texts and 1,000 minutes of calls. This would cost just £960 over two years, which is a saving of almost £600 compared to paying a smaller upfront cost.Alternatively, we think the second best deal is to pay £249.99 upfront and then £35.99 per month for 2GB of 4G data and unlimited calls and texts. This would cost £1,114 over two years.
Alternatively, if you’d rather not buy an iPhone 6 through EE directly, you can find better deals through Omio that still use the EE network. At time of writing, the best one we could find for the 16GB iPhone 6 was through Phones.co.uk for £39.99 upfront and then £35.99 per month, which would get you unlimited calls and texts and 2GB of 3G data for a total cost of £904 over two years.
Likewise, Phones.co.uk also offers the grey iPhone 6 Plus for £94.99 upfront and £38.99 per month giving you unlimited calls and texts and 4GB of 4G data for a total cost of £945 over two years.
