well I want a 5s of course but I have to choose the colour :/ AND since there are no pre-orders, I may need to queue at the shop on friday :(

my contract is up in a month, going to just get a rolling month contract with giff gaff for my 5, i think it would take me weeks to pick a colour anyway lol

Keith... is it possible to extend the apple warranty on my phone?

hmmm I think you have to buy applecare within the first month of buying the phone so not sure you can direct

tbh though, I'm surprised your bank/hoem insurance doesnt cover it anyway? I've had free gadgets insurance with mine for years now

Bit annoyed at the price of the 5c. Before it was bought out it was advertised to be the "budget" iPhone, somehow 500 is not budget. Gutted as I really want a new iPhone, my 4 is well and truly on the way out, but my contract doesn't allow me to upgrade as its sim only, otherwise I'd have to pay 35 a month :(

I can't believe that's how much it is here, I'm sure I saw the price in the states as $99 for the 5c. Maybe I was dreaming lol

They always quote the US prices with a 2 year contract, that's why it seems very cheap

Not really tempted, as they didn't add much that inspired me. Still hanging on to my 4s as I have the (no-longer offered) unlimited data plan. More excited about the 5s/c insomuch as perhaps it will drive down the price of the 5. If that happens, Jon is due an upgrade (and currently has the 5) so I might take his 5 and let him upgrade to a new 5. We'll see.

My contract is finally up (actually let DW and DD have my slots as they usually break or grow tired of phones) and thinking about an iPhone. I don't care if it is a 5 (S or C), I would take a 4 no problem, anything to get rid of my stupid hand me down blackberry.
