I'm sorry but your logic is actually flawed, you do not save £600 at all.
- iPhone 6 Plus(16GB model) - £619
- 12 Month SIMO(Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Text Messages with 10GB data) - £27.99
- Pay Monthly Plan(Unlimited Minutes, Unlimited Text Messages with 10GB data, including iPhone 6 Plus) - £43.99, with a upfront payment of £229.99 for the phone
Pay Monthly Charge;
£43.99 × 24 = £1055.76 + £229.99 = £1285.75
SIMO Price Plan with iPhone 6 Plus brought direct from Apple;
£27.99 × 12 = £335.88 + £619 = £954.88
£27.99 × 24 = £671.76 + £619 = £1290.76
So you save £330.87 if you was to buy the iPhone from Apple directly, but then you're only on a 12 month plan. If you was to stay with the same price plan over 24 months and pay for the iPhone directly from Apple, you actually loose £5.01.
So your logic of saving over £600 is actually incorrect.

The difference from i Phone to i Phone is quite small in most areas. I know people always want the better phone. The 6S will be better than the 6 and the i Phone 7 should be a lot better than the i Phone 5, 5S, 6,and 6S. At the end of the day its just a smart phone. Its not going to change your life.
Every EE ad. I've read seem to want to charge me £48 to £75 + for a 24 month contract or hundreds up front and about £38 per month. I would rather buy from Apple and get a cheap sim deal - which saves me about £600 per 24 months.
And no, having purchased over 230 i Phone in the last 18 months,
I don't like 'em. I use a BlackBerry phone. You can drop them and they keep on working. Why use a touch keypad? I would rather have a PC.

£619 + (£8 x 24mths.) = £811 or £33.79 per month a saving of £600 on a typical EE 24 month contract of £58.79 per month.
We have all read the ads. and can do the maths...

So you only need 1GB but EE doesn't offer 1GB sim only plans. Let's compare 500MB and 2GB plans. To be fair.
500MB plan with iPhone 6 16GB version
Upfront is £129.99 monthly charge is £35.99. So..
£129.99 + (£35.99 × 24) = £993.75
Sim Only Deal with buying iPhone from Apple.
Phone costs £539 Monthly Charge is £9.99. So..
£539 + (£9.99 × 24) = £778.76
Difference is a saving of £214.99 if buy direct from Apple. No where close to the £600 your stating.
Now let's try wGB plan as you said you need 1GB so 500MB might not be enough so you'll need more.
iPhone 6 16GB.
Upfront £89.99 Monthly Charge £43.99
£89.99 + (£43.99 × 24) = £1145.75
Phone costs £539 Monthly Charge £15.99
£539 + (£15.99 × 24) = £922.76
Difference is a saving of £222.99. Do again no where near the £600 saving you keep saying.
But like @Burge said. Not everyone can afford to pay £539 up front.

I'm really not going to spend hours arguing with you on the matter, especially in such a public forum.
I'm not sure where you're finding your information but the "typical" EE plan is not £58.79; they don't even have a price plan with that value.
The price plan is actually £53.99 with a handset cost of £59.99, which is £4.80 cheaper than you are quoting.
The reason you seem to think that its cheaper to go direct to Apple is because as you have already advised, you have a £8 SIMO with limited minutes and text messages, while people don't want limited.
So in reality you pay for what you want.
