Orange has become the latest UK carrier to reveal its iPhone 4 pricing, ahead of the smartphone’s debut on June 24th. Monthly plans start from £30 ($44) on a 24-month agreement or £35 ($52) on an 18-month agreement, with the iPhone 4 16GB itself being £169 ($250) on the former or £229 ($339) on the latter. While Orange still bill their data package as “unlimited”, it actually comes with a fair-use policy limiting it to just 750MB per month.
If you want a free iPhone 4 with Orange, you’ll need to look to their most expensive 24-month contract, paying £75 per month (for unlimited calls and texts, and some included European minutes/data) in return for a “free” 16GB handset. Orange will also offer the iPhone 4 on pay-as-you-go, with various tariffs to choose between. However the PAYG price for the iPhone 4 is consistent: £480 for the 16GB or £570 for the 32GB.
Interestingly, Orange’s tariff details – which you can see in the gallery below – also include tethering pricing. On all but the most expensive 24-month agreement (which gets 3GB included) tethering costs from £5 per month. O2 and Vodafone have already announced their iPhone 4 packages.
