Vodafone iPhone tariffs announced; available 14th January
December 21st, 2009
Vodafone have today announced their iPhone tariffs and are starting to take pre-orders from today. The iPhone will be available on Vodafone contract from the 14th January. As of yet, it isn’t available on Vodafone PAYG. See our updated iPhone price comparison webpage to see how prices compares to O2, Orange and Tesco.
From the Vodafone press release:
|iPhone 3G 8GB||£59||FREE||FREE||FREE||FREE||FREE|
|iPhone 3GS 16GB||£149||£89||FREE||£89||FREE||FREE|
|iPhone 3GS 32GB||£239||£179||£89||£179||£89||FREE|
How does it compare to the other networks?
Unfortunately there isn’t the price war that we hoped for. Prices are more or less similar to those on O2 and Orange.
However, there are some significant differences to the tariffs offered by other networks. Firstly, the fact that all iPhone tariffs have unlimited texts. Secondly, Vodafone give 1GB as a monthly data cap – this compares to 750MB for Orange. However, O2 doesn’t have an explicit limit.
Free Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls
Vodafone are offering free Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls for customers who pre-order the iPhone. The free calls will last for the initial length of your contract (i.e. either 18 months or 24 months depending on your contract).
