Re: Internets for the win!
I can’t speak for the UK any more but contracts in ’Straya are getting stupid. I got an iPhone 4S on contract and the phone cost me a bit over $100. When the time came to get a 6S, the subsidy was practically nonexistent and the data allowance was pitiful at the start of it, let alone 2 years later.
Now I’m on PAYG, which now looks exactly like a contract since all calls and texts are inclusive, except the price is better, the data allowances are better and you can always change if a better deal comes along.
As a person of moderate intelligence, I honestly cannot understand why *anyone* would get a contract.
The next time I need to pay the idiot tax for a phone, I’ll be running straight into the freakish hell that is the Apple store to get it direct.
