Hello All,could use the forums advice,if I buy a secondhand iphone unlocked could I use it with my current BT Simcard? I have need of a larger screen but do not actually use all that often,or failing that option would I be better off taking out a monthly contract? I guess what I need to know is weather the system will support a smartphone.
I have got to admit I like the Bt help available as im not very techy minded.
Any advice welcomed.
Welcome to the forum.
The quick answer to your Q is yes; you can use the BT SIM in an unlocked i phone. [There have been a number of connectivity and email questions; but the answers are in the forum].
BT will not support your i phone with telephone advice, as they do not offfer it to residential customers, so if you are looking for that, be careful.
The i phone is not the largest screen around; a number of Android phones offer larger, The S*****g G****y Setc range for example.
There are some very competitive SIM only deals around ATM, and I have to say ATM BT is not IMHO amongst them for residential customers. Ship around online, and you'll soon find them. You could expect to pay £10-£15 ish for calls, data and texts pcm maximum.
So I'm bouncing the Q back to you; what are you really looking for, and what cant you do without in an ideal sense in your next step?
Post back if you want; there will be other advice than mine I'm sure to help you
Hi Allan and thanks for your welcome and advice. I just feel i want to have better connectivity,it`s just trying to get best value and would not like to spend more than circa £15 a month.
Ee have a deal on an iphone 4 for 15.50 incl phone on a 2yr tariff,just unsure about data usage ,bundles etc.
I suffer from parkinsons and am not the quickest typer so don`t know how i would fare with a touch screen but im interested in the apps available.
Hi Mike, you're welcome
As you can probbly tell from my post above; I'm not an i phone user or enthusiast; I use the other popular mobile operating system, Android.
In fairness, and to keep things balanced, I've PM'd someone who is an i phone user on the forum, and I'm sure he'll give you some advice on the i phone and costs.
I'll then bounce back with a view about Android and costs, and that should help..............
Good advice there Mike.
Have a google and browse; think about it and get back to us if we can help further...........
