Summary

All the stores offered a free iPhone 4S handset on particular tariffs, but it was Carphone Warehouse which scooped first prize.

They had the lowest-priced tariff with a good minutes, text and internet allowance. They had plenty of staff on hand to help, and Teon was knowledgeable with great customer care skills. Vodafone came a close second – the customer service and the package were good but the tariff was £5 more than the one offered by Carphone. At the O2 store I was surprised to be told that I couldn’t order a handset until the middle of November.  Only the Three store had the iPhone 4S in stock, but the customer service was disappointing.
