Orange iPhone Pricing
Orange says that it is launching the following iPhone plans and price points:
Pay Monthly — iPhone 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models will be available on multiple monthly plans, with the 3GS free on all £45 plans and the 3G model free from £30 plans (both with a 24-month contract).
For anyone looking for full all-inclusive packages, there’s a new high end “traveller” offer with inclusive roaming call and data allowance is available at £125 month.
All plans include unlimited (subject to a 750MB fair usage monthly limit) UK mobile data usage on Orange’s data network, which Orange boasts has the largest 3G population coverage in the UK.
In addition, Orange iPhone customers will also get free unlimited use of the UK’s largest single public Wi-Fi network, BT Openzone.
Pay as You Go (PAYG) — Customers topping-up by £50 at purchase will be able to buy an iPhone 3G on Orange PAYG for a mere £333. (Did I say ‘mere’?)
According to Orange, any customer buying an iPhone on Orange PAYG will automatically get 250MB of data each month, plus unlimited use BT Openzone wireless hotspots for 12 months.
SME Plans — Similar to Pay Monthly Consumer pricing (above), with an additional £50 monthly tariff.
