I would love an iPhone 5 but in the UK we are tied into 2 year contracts and I can't justify the £400-£500 it is likely to cost outright. Anyone else think that sucks?

Yes i agree especially since the iPhone 4s was really just a souped up version of the iPhone 4

Would you rather no contract and pay 700 for the phone at time of purchase?

As a matter of fact, that's what I'm going to do from now on. Unlocked FTW. I will never sign another 2 year contract again.

Funny I sign a 2 year contract every year and have a new iPhone every year for $200. Contracts are where it's at

Hate to tell you even with that unlocked you will still have a contract unless you go boost. You won't have an ETF but you will have a contract.

Boost isn't the only operator in the US that does prepaid no contract plans.
