Some clarity please...
Say for example I was to order this phone : http://giffgaff.com/samsung/samsung-galaxy-s4/phone-details which I understand to be £50 upfront and 24 months of £13.51 = £374.24
Does the monthly fee only pay for the handset or does it include minutes as well?
I ask because I have seen a handset in a shop, its £22.50 per month for 24 month contract comes with tethering, all you can eat data and 1000 minutes + 500 text messages per month. It means over the life of the phone I would pay £504 and get 24000 minutes, 12000 texts and as much data as I can use either tethered or on the handset.
The difference in price is £165.76 and I could get all the above... Can GiffGaff match that or beat it?
Thats not a very good deal...
especially on the iPhones when you have the iPhone6 around the corner and the US prices for a 5C start from $29
