I was thinking of purchasing a new iphone 6 from 2 degrees going on the $79 a month plan for 24months.
However 24 months is a long time to be stuck with the same phone, In 24 months the Iphone 8 will most likely be out.


So my question is if I was to terminate this plan what will the cost be?
          -I know that I will have to pay the remaining balance of the handeset off. But does that include the monthly plan charges too?
          -Also is there an early termination fee and does anyone know how much this will cost?

Any relevant input will be of help

Cheers

p.s. I Probaly should go in store and ask, but this is just to get a heads up.

The plan is open term so if you cancel the plan you will just have to pay the remaining amount owing on the handset.

New MRO's are only available on Freedom Term plans. Previously it was possible to get them combined with a 24 month term plan but that has changed.  
I work for 2d (but am not claiming to represent them here)
Also only available to new pay monthly customers.

Okay thanks, if thats the case for only a $29 upfront fee, 2 degrees is killing the competition.
I dont see why other companies arent being more competitive. It is $0 upfront $170 a month using vodafone and $0 upfront and $140 on spark

If I was in the market for an iPhone 6, this seems to be a really really good deal.
Just wish it was a 64GB version that was on offer.

Doing the maths, it seems as if 2D is loosing $10 on the RRP price of the iPhone 
Total cost of plan over 24 months = $1925
Cost of the $39 plan over 24 months = $936
Left over = $989 for the phone

However I am not in the market for an iPhone 6 and I don't need the benefit of the $39 plan
My Nexus 4 is doing its job just fine

I would expect that the RRP will include a margin for the retailer, which is probably more than $10 on a $999 price tag. So 2 degrees are most likely cutting their margin (in comparison to others selling at RRP), not losing $10.

Yup, 64Gb is the sweet spot, even if I needed to front up the difference, that would get me to sign up as a contract customer rather than freedom term....
