Today saw confirmation from the fifth UK carrier that it would carry the newest iPhone when it is released on June 24. At the time of publishing O2, Orange, Vodafone, Three and T-Mobile have all confirmed that they will carry iPhone 4.
Yesterday O2 announced prices for those who are already in a contract to upgrade to an iPhone 4. The company said that a flat rate of £20 per month would be charged for the remaining months left in a contract on top of the price of a subsidised handset and beginning a new 18 or 24 month contract.
O2 also announced today its new smartphone tariffs (below) that will be applied to those moving to iPhone 4. Markedly O2 has followed in the steps of AT&T in the U.S. and removed unlimited data from all the plans with the most data available being 1GB on a 24 month £60 tariff.
O2 added that just 3% of its smartphone customers would need to purchase extra data every month.
Although none of the UK carriers have announced handset prices as of yet and O2 is the only carrier who has announced tariff details many of them have announced plans for the iPhone release.
Orange will begin pre-orders of iPhone 4 on June 15 and will announce handset pricing and tariffs at the time.
O2 will not allow pre-orders and will sell iPhone 4 on a first come, first served basis starting June 24.
Three confirmed with World of Apple that pre-orders of iPhone 4 would begin June 15 with orders delivered on June 24.
Vodafone and T-Mobile are yet to confirm their UK launch plans of iPhone 4.
