Manx Telecom Phone + Contract prices

I was looking at sures latest price plans and can't say I'm that impressed. I'm on one of those 'unlimited' contracts that they don't do anymore and I'm not totally sure what I'll do when the contract runs out early next year. I'll probably try haggling unsuccessfully with MT again. Buying a cheap Chinese phone and going on PAYG looks more promising these days, although getting home broadband with sure and a mobile contract is £120/yr cheaper.

If you don't sign a new contract with Sure you retain your existing terms. We left one of ours on an old tariff for nearly a year before one of their newer sim only offerings became more appealing. If you buy a new phone outright there's no need to re-sign until you want to.

Turns out I can fly to Manchester, get the phone from Virgin Media on contract, fly back, pay the cheapest Manx Telecom sim only contract, and still have paid less than getting the phone on contract from Manx Telecom. Come on guys.

I can't see how with the price of flights to Manchester. How does that breakdown numbers wise?

LG G5 from Manx Telecom:
£45/month for 2 years = £1080
LG G5 from Virgin Media:
£26/month for 2 years = £624
Cheapest Manx Telecom Sim-Only contract £15/month for 2 years = £360
Return flight to Manchester = £69
Total = £984
Flight was leaving Thursday 1st Dec, returning Saturday 3rd Dec.

Wouldn't it be simpler to just buy a SIM-free phone off Amazon?

LG G5 : £400

Cheapest MT PAYG £15/month for 2 years: £360

 

Total: £760

 

Granted, you don't get a weekend away for the pleasure, but hey, it's 25% off MT prices

It is yeah, just would prefer to do it monthly rather than in one go right when I'm supposed to be buying other people Christmas presents... :)
