my youngest daughter shelley has a blackberry on a contract..but shes now wanting to switch to an iphone and ditch the contract as shes going back to college..and wants to use pay as you go..

can this be done with an iphone..she wants to have internet with her phone as she doesnt have access where she lives just now apart from her phone..but she cant afford a contract anymore..

any advice before i go and buy her an iphone from ebay?

thanks

Hi Avril,

I am simple, but might be able to help nonetheless. Your question isn't "can your daughter end the contract on her blackberry?", the question is "if you buy your daughter an iphone can she get the internet on a pay and go contract?" am i correct or stupider than I look?

one of my friends has an iphone on pay as you go and i think had a deal of unlimited free internet for a year...

not sure if that was for any particular reason or they just do that.

Some networks will do a thing when you top up so much a month they will give you so much internet.

you can get sim only packages with networks anywhere from £10-25 a month with good deals, might work out easier than paying £35 a month or whatever.

When her contacts ends with who she is with now if you say you cant afford it and want to cancel they will usually give you a really good price and then the sim could be put in an iphone. for example with one of my old contracts as soon as it ended and i was cancelling it they took my bill from £30 a month down to £10 with extra stuff...

I'm with o2 and just a word of warning, they are the most expensive mobile internet going, also one of the slowest, although at the moment, they are doing it unlimited until end sept. Orange will give you 1gb faster for the price of 500 with o2. T-mobile do a lot of unlimited deals, but have fair usage policies. Its a minefiled but they all do sim only deals for around 15 pounds a month with internet acces although they are [email protected] compared to the deals they'll give you with a phone.

O2 definetly do PAYG on an iphone, they also do bolt ons for internet use, there cheap too as the iphone is obviously a powerful web browser compared to other phones so the bolt on is cheap to make it attractive to PAYG customers
