    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.
