    Son wants an iphone 6 8th Oct 17 at 11:46 AM
    My son wants me to buy him an iphone 6. He already has a sim card so just needs the phone. Even though the iphone 6 is years old he prefers iphones to android.

    Best price?

    OP doesn't say if they are looking for secondhand or new.

    I was looking for a secondhand 5s for my son. I came to conclusion that he will have to wait until after Christmas, they are selling for too much this time of year.

    Forgot to mention it has to be new. Prices for iphones are very expensive considering it is a 3 year old model. Cheapest I can find for a sim free is £329 on carphonewarehouse.

    Carphone iPhones are completely unlocked now, also reason they are so expensive is they are 32gb. Wouldn't recommend a 16gb iPhone to anyone

    iPhone 6's are no longer stocked by Apple or John Lewis so you may struggle to find one. Good luck with your search.
