    3 - Essential Internet SIM only 600 @ £12.90 (12month contract)
    600min
    5000 txt
    1GB data
    £58.33 Quidco

    (£12.90 x 24m) - £58.33 + £529 = £780.27 with only a 12month tie-in.

    £780.27/24m = average of £32.51/month


    Personally I rarely use minutes so would go with the Ultimate Internet 200 tariff, same price, only £25 cashback but unlimited data.

    Out of interest,will this be a new feature at Hexus regarding higher end phones?? It would be cool if phones like the Nokia 920 and upcoming phones like the HTC One X 5 will be also covered too.

    One X 5???
    And what about Everything Everywhere? Seeing as they're the only guaranteed 4G usable network, what do they offer?

    Just look at the Orange/Tmobile sites, that's all EE link to if you try to find out about tariffs.

    Tmobile full monty tariffs are strange, £41/£46/£61 per month, all unlimited everything with a tiny discount on the handset, it's laughable.

    Re: News - The best Apple iPhone 5 deals in the UK

    In my one year contract example I added another year at £100 to make the term up to 24 month in order for a fairer comparison. As you will need a SIM the following year anyway.

    Re: News - The best Apple iPhone 5 deals in the UK

    I'm not sure I get you? I worked out 24months @ £12.90 on the assumption the tariff would remain static

    The One X 5 seems to be a rumoured upcoming phone from HTC with a 5" screen. There seems to be persistant rumours of a 1080p device being released:

    http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-...isplay-1094738

    A Chinese company is going to release a phone with a 5" 1920X1080 screen already:

    LG already has shown off the display:

    Oh, my mistake I thought you just calculated for a 12 month term... But I see you've put 24X now.
