    Personal vs Business Contract

    Personal vs Business Contract 11th Jul 18 at 5:13 PM
    My first post, so please be gentle with me.

    I recently have set up as a sole trader and thus am in a new world. When my phone contract renewal came up in the past I would check out MSE for the best deals and go from there.

    I have done some digging and seen the deals on for the iPhone X and iPhone 8 - but my question is about whether personal or business deals are the most cost effective?

    As a general principal does anyone have any experience of this? Can you give me some pointers?

    I would only require 1 device as part of the contract.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You get more support from a biz contract.
    If you get connection problems with a personal contract all you get is a refund on the days you were without service.
    On a biz you could get comp (depending on the type of contract, there are many).

    I'd suggest either calling the networks biz division or use a dealer that handle them.
