I'm thinking of signing a 24month contract with Telenor for an iPhone 5 but the more reviews I'm reading about Telenor the more I'm feeling this might be a bad option. Has anyone got an advice or experience with them? Any help will be much appreciated.

Tack

Telenor is "ok" ... but I wouldn't sign a 24 month contract for any phone.
Especially as you can buy the iphone 5 for 530 UK pounds , factory unlocked.

Thanks byke! Yes that was my first thought but I've also heard that they make it really hard to have a sim only setup here for the iPhone 5. Is this just sales talk to make you go with a contract?

Its very easy to have a sim only setup.
Just walk into any store and ask ... I have it and it has saved me a fortune.
The sales people just want to sell you more than you need ...

Buying an IPhone 5 on 24 month contract from Telenor costs 240kr/month for the phone itself, i.e. a total of 5760kr. Add 350kr for unlocking the phone an the total is 6110kr or 596 GBP, so you save about 66 GBP by paying up front for an unlocked UK phone.

However, if you still want a Telenor subscription you lose a discount of 30kr/month, or in total 720kr or 67 GBP, by not buying the phone from them, so in total you don't save much by buying an unlocked phone if you want a Telenor subscription.
