iPhone 4S Now Available From £35 Without Upfront Cost

The new iPhone 4S is now available from Three without the upfront payment of £49, making this the cheapest deal on offer that doesn't include cashback; you can probably bring down the price further by going through Quidco or TopCashback.

The offer is currently valid via OneStopPhoneShop (opens in new tab) and costs only £35 per month on a two year contract, which is a very decent deal and the cheapest yet without an upfront cost.

For that price, you get 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 1GB internet. For a small premium at Three (there's none at OSPS) though, you get to quadruple the amount of minutes, get 5000 three-to-three minutes as well as all you can eat data and free tethering.

Launched at the beginning of October, the iPhone 4S has been the fastest selling iPhone to date and possibly one of the fastest selling gadgets in the world ever.

It looks like the iPhone 4 externally (except for two small notches on the sides), but internally, it is an altogether different beast. There's an A5 system on chip, 512MB RAM, up to 64GB onboard storage, the frighteningly efficient Siri voice assistant and a superb eight megapixel camera onboard.

Battery life is said to be its weakest point, which is why Apple scrambled to launch an iOS 5.0.1 update shortly after the launch, with many saying that it could well be another Antennagate.
