iPhone 4 Tariffs Revealed by O2, Overall Cost of Free Handset Â£1170
Finally O2 UK has published their tariffs for the soon to be available iPhone 4, and apparently their iPhone 4 tariffs aren’t that dissimilar to rival Orange UK who outed their iPhone 4 tariffs a day previous, although O2 UK offer the 32GB version for Â£10 less.
According to Rich Trenholm, over on Crave, the same as most, O2 is offering the option to gain an iPhone 4 for free by opting for the top of the range tariffs which pan out as on an 18 month contract at Â£65 per month, or on a 2 year contract at Â£60 per month for a 16GB and is roughly Â£10 less than Orange on the same what you get deal.
Doing the math this means to get your “free” iPhone 4 you will have to shell out Â£1170 on an 18 month option and Â£1440 if you decide to go the 2 year route, which is hardly free in the end.
According to Trenholm, O2’s iPhone 4 tariffs look cheaper and offer unlimited texts; however you do have to shell out a minimum of Â£40 a month to compete with Orange UK’s “across-the-board 750MB data cap.”
I guess the old saying still stand, nothing really comes for free and one way or another you will end up paying. So which tariff are our O2 readers going to go with?
