iphone 5 contractsGetting a new iPhone 5 is both exciting and expensive. But one of the ways that you can offset some of the initial cost of your phone is by signing a contract with a mobile phone service provider. iPhone contracts can be a confusing business, and choosing the right and cheapest contract depends a lot on the kind of user that you are. So we’ve done the research for you and found the best priced contracts for different kinds of users. Read on to find out which kind of contract you should sign…

For the Average User…

The average user is defined by mobile companies as someone that uses around 250 calling minutes a month and around 1 GB of mobile Internet data. This is the average user in the UK. For these people the best deal at the moment is with O2’s network. O2’s On & On deal actually gives you unlimited minutes and unlimited text messaging as well, and it has a mobile data usage cap of 1 GB per month. This plan carries a monthly fee of £26, and the upfront cost for the phone is £249.99. That’s adds up to £874 over the course of the twenty four month contract, and is the cheapest deal around.

For Heavy Data Users…

If you can’t be away from the Internet, and use you phone for messaging, browsing, emailing and even navigating with the map app, then you’re going to need a little more than the average data limit. Fortunately, most companies offer unlimited data packages for heavy internet users. Right now the best deal is with mobile network Three. The Ultimate Internet 500 package offers 500 calling minutes, 5000 text messages and unlimited mobile data usage. The monthly cost is £34, plus the upfront cost for the phone, which is £79. Over the course of the twenty four month contract that adds up to a total of £895.

For Heavy Callers…

If you call more than you do anything else, then you need plenty of calling minutes. Preferably unlimited calling minutes. For you, the best plan is still the O2 On & On plan that was mentioned above.

For Eighteen Month Contracts…

If you don’t want to commit to a full two year contract, some providers offer eighteen month contracts instead. So if you’re looking for a shorter contract the best deal right now is with T-Mobile. They give you a monthly plan that consists of 300 calling minutes, unlimited text messaging and 750 MB of Internet data usage, for a cost of £36 per month. The upfront cost of the phone is £249, which means that over the course of eighteen months you’ll pay £897.

For Twelve Month Contracts…

If you want an even shorter contract, some companies do offer yearly ones. The best on the market right now is with Tesco Mobile. They’ll give you a plan with 500 calling minutes, 5000 text messages and 1 GB of mobile internet data for a cost of £30, plus the upfront price of £400 for the phone. Over the course of a year that adds up to £760.
