Orange has announced its iPhone 4 pricing plans for pay-as-you-go, monthly and businesses customers, revealing that contract customers will have to pay a whopping £75 a month for 24 months to get the device for free.
Business rates include a 24-month contract at £50 a month offering the 16GB version for free, while all Business Infinity tariffs on £95 a month will receive the device for free.
Otherwise, customers will have to pay between £24.68 and £194.89 depending on the length of the contract and the value of the handset. For example, a 24-month contract for the 16GB iPhone 4 at £30 a month will require a one-off payment of £101.28.
Pay monthly customers unwilling to take up the £75 a month option will have to spend at least £29 for a 16GB device on a £45 contract for 24 months, rising to £319 for a 32GB device on an 18-month contract at £35 a month.
Orange will sell the smartphone at £480 for a 16GB model and £570 for the 32GB model to pay-as-you-go customers on the firm's Monkey, Dolphin, Canary, Racoon and Camel tariffs that offer a combination of texts, calls and music.
Other mobile operators have announced pricing plans for the new Apple handset. O2's prices start from £15 a month for 300 minutes, but the operator has not yet said how much the phone will cost.
A hastily withdrawn Vodafone 'test page', meanwhile, suggested that the company will charge £189 for the 16GB version and £280 for the 32GB version. Tariffs start at £25 per month for a 24-month contract for 75 minutes, 250 texts and 1024MB of data.
