Three has released price points for iPhone 4 microSIM only deals, alongside its monthly tariffs for the high-end handset.
Aimed at iPhone 4 owners who have bought an unlocked version of the phone outright, microSIM only deals allow consumers the flexibility of rolling or short-term contracts and some very attractive tariffs and allowances.
Three’s £15 per month option offers 300 any-network minutes, 3000 texts, 2,000 Three-to-Three minutes and 1GB of data per month. Takers are free to cancel their contract with just 30 days notice and will incur no penalty.
The £25 per month option necessitates signing up for a 12-month contract and includes 2,000 minutes, 5000 texts, 5,000 Three-to-Three calls and 1GB of mobile internet use.
Alternatively, iPhone 4 users can choose a pay as you go microSIM and add credit as and when required. According to Three, PAYG customers also benefit from “all the usual perks, including free texts and internet with every top-up”.
All microSIM 0nly Three plans will be available from Friday 25th, from which time Three will also be offering existing customers the chance to exchange their current pay monthly SIMs for a microSIM. This will allow them to use their current plan with their new iPhone, which is only compatible with microSIMs.
Although Three has yet to start taking orders for the iPhone 4, it unveiled its tariffs for the first time today.
All contracts entitle takers to a 1GB data limit per month, putting Three’s mobile internet allowances in line with Vodafone’s.
The carrier has not revealed contract lengths, but the cheapest monthly tariff for the 16GB edition of the handset appears to be £30 per month with a one-off charge of £99. This includes 500 any network minutes, 5000 texts and 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes.
Consumers who want the 32GB edition can also get a £30 per month contract, but must pay £189 for the phone. Calls and data allowances are identical to the £30 per month 16GB deal.
Three’s is offering the iPhone 4 16GB for free provided customers sign up for a £45 per month contract. This offers 2,000 anytime network minutes, 5000 texts and 5,000 3-to-3 minutes.
