How does it compare to the other networks?

vodafoneUnfortunately 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).
