Update: 14th June 2010
We now have details from Vodafone on how much the iPhone 4 will cost in the UK Vodafone Announces iPhone 4 UK Prices, 16GB £189, 32GB £280.
UK mobile phone operator has announced that it will remove unlimited data from all of its smartphone plans, this include the new Apple iPhone 4. From the 24th of June 2010, when O2 starts selling the iPhone 4 it will introduce additional monthly charges for all new customers and existing customers who upgrade to the iPhone 4 and other new smartphone users.
An example of this is that a customer who is paying £35 a month on a two year contract will get 500MB of free data per month, if they go over this allowance, O2 will charge them an extra £5 for every 500MB of data they used.
This move by O2 is bound to see them lose customers to some of the other networks in the UK, as the new iPhone 4 will be available on a total of five networks within the UK.
O2 has said that around three percent of its 21.4m customers will have to pay an additional data charge, but we suspect in reality this will be much higher, as smartphone users tend to use data hungry applications, and use the web and email a lot.
You can see full details of the plans available on O2 at the link below.
It looks like we may finally get some information on the price for the iPhone 4 in the UK on Monday.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPhone, Technology News
