Earlier we bought you news that Orange and T-Mobile had announced their pricing for the iPhone 5. Well now O2 are getting in on the act and have posted up some prices of their own, things aren’t looking too cheap over on the blue side of the fence either.
They are yet to let slip how much you will have to pay for the handsets but the cheapest contract comes in at £26 a month and will score you unlimited minutes and texts with 1GB of data. You can bet that the phone wont be cheap at that price. Things escalate up to £46 a month for what (we can only assume) is the plan with a free/cheap iPhone 5. These plans are all 24 month contracts on the O2 ‘On & On’ plan. A standard tariff stands you in at the wallet destroyingly high £63 a month.
It’s also worth mentioning the problems you may have getting the most out of your device on O2. As stated by Leigh the other day, the UK iPhone 5 only supports the LTE network that EE have bought up (lucky break hey), so your only hope to use your iPhone 5 with 4G currently is to get it with EE or Three who have a slice of the pie and will be launching next year.
