    I was just wondering how much we all pay for our mobile phones around the world.

    At the moment i pay £15.00 = $22.60 a month. Thats for sim only 2gb data 4000 mins call time and unlimited text.

    I'm thinking of getting a iPhone 6s Plus. And that would cost about £50.00 = $75.20 A month on a 2 year contract.

    I pay retail for mine. I don't want a contract and want the freedom of leaving the carrier anytime I want with no fees.
    My Note 5 was $762.

    Too much. I did the pay for your phones over two years and we do not have a contract but the bill is $50 more monthly. We have the galaxy s5. We get unlimited streaming and E gets 1GB and I get 3GB ( I'll be reducing that today). With all the jacked up bullshit fees our $120 plan ends up $193 (including phone payments)

    I think we are over $300 a month at this point. Muliple smart phones we are paying for 3 iPhone 6. We get 30GB data which roles over we often when over on our data when we only had 10GB and had to pay addition costs.

    3 Mobile: 2 Gb data, 600 minutes, unlimited texts, plus generous 3 to 3 minutes because I'm on my OH's account. £28 pcm, due to renew Jul / Aug, at which point I'll go for the best available Samsung, for which I may well pay a supplement towards the next one up.

    My sim only is £15 per month for 2gb data and unlimited minutes and text.

    I bought a Chinese android phone for £150 from eBay (new, including import fees and vat) (can now be sourced from uk sellers for £120 all in) and honestly its the best phone I've ever owned, when my friend tell me they paid £500-£600 for a branded handset, I feel embarasssed for them

    Haha, I'm the same - I pay fuck all for my mobile connection each month, and own the HTC phone I use (okay it was given to me as a gift). So yeah, if I pay a tenner in a month it's an expensive month, haha. :) xx

    I buy my phones paying full price. My last one was bought only weeks ago, a note 4, and it cost 490 euros.

    As for calling, I use prepaid phone cards and spend about 100 euros/year.
