    iPhone 6s Groupon deal

    iPhone 6s Groupon deal 9th Jul 17 at 7:18 AM
    iPhone 6s for £269 on Groupon website:

    https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/apple-iphone-6-or-6s-with-100-free-phone-plan-from-freedompop?CID=UK_AFF_5600_225_5383_1&utm_medium=a fl&utm_campaign=206616&mediaId=531&utm_source=GPN& subs_group=afl

    Is this too good to be true? What's the catch? I'm after an iPhone 6s unlocked, not sure from this Groupon deal if the phone is unlocked.

    Anyone taken advantage of this offer yet?

    Says it's an unlocked refurbished device for the 6 and refurbished for the 6s, I see your doubt!

    Start from £239 @ http://store.musicmagpie.co.uk/category/mobile-phones/apple/iphone-6s/?filter=network:UNLOCKED#prm_creative=iphone_6s&pr m_name=iphone_6s-TNMP&prm_position=L&prm_id=TNMPL

    Which is £30 cheaper than the group on deal. No brainer.

    Any size memory, not too fussed. Would like to find the cheapest iPhone unlocked or locked to o2/tesco. Intend to put a Tesco SIM only into it.

    Refurbished seems slightly risky for exactly what damage might be on the handset, what is the average damage they have?

    Argos have the SE 32gb for £299.99 unlocked and brand new.
    I think this is a genuine bargain.

    The SE came out after the 6.

    No longer support the 5 or 5C. Or less.

    Why would they stop support for a model they are still selling? I think you'll see support for the se for a good while yet.

    John Lewis have the same price but will be fully unlocked (if it hasn't changed, Argos iPhones lock to the network of the first SIM inserted) and will come with the usual John Lewis two-year guarantee:
