The iPhone 5C has proved to be an incredibly popular phone with some users. Not a huge amount cheaper than the regular iPhone, but with a fun range of colours it's been something of a refreshing change in Apple's range.
It comes with 4G too, so you'll be able to get fast internet speeds, which for most people is just about the most important thing when it comes to a modern smartphone. Perhaps the only major downside to the 5C is that it has no fingerprint scanner, for that you need to upgrade to the iPhone 5S.
So, it's decision time. Because it's a little older now, the iPhone 5C can be a more attractive bargain than the rest of the iPhone range. If you're looking for a bit more power and speed, then you might want to read our deals pages for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The UK's best iPhone 5C deal: considering all the factors, like up-front cost and the allowances given, the best iPhone 5C deal is from EE. Included are 500 minutes of calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. All-in-all, that's not a bad package for £25 up-front and then £18.49 per month. Get this deal: direct from The Carphone Warehouse
Now let's break down the best iPhone 5C deals by network…
Best iPhone 5C deals on EE
EE is the network to go to if you want high-speed 4G

Vodafone prides itself in coverage and quality, it's often a bit mean with data, but there are extras like Spotify and Sky Sports Mobile thrown in.
Deal 1: After a £59 up-front charge for the phone, we think the best deal for the iPhone 5C on Vodafone is for £14.50 per month. The low monthly cost means that you're getting a very modest 100mb of data, 100 minutes and unlimited texts. This one is ideal for that special teenager in your life who spends every waking moment staring at WhatsApp while connected to their home Wi-Fi. Get this deal: direct from Mobiles.co.uk

The monthly cost is fairly high at £37, but for the data-hungry, this is the only deal in town. Get this deal:direct from Three
