PT, ITA iPhone 3G plans

International carrier Vodafone has announced the monthly rates for the iPhone 3G in Portugal and Italy. In the former country, most phones will require a two-year contract; the cheapest plan is the "Best iPhone 100" option, which costs approximately 30 per month, and offers 100 minutes, 100 texts and 250MB of data traffic. Best iPhone 230 (45) upgrades to 230 minutes and texts, while the 500 plan (65) graduates to its own corresponding numbers. Data remains fixed. Prices for the actual phones range from 299 (8GB) and 389 (16GB) under the 100 plan to 129 and 219 under the 500 option.

People looking to be free of a contract must pick a pre-paid phone, costing 499 or 599. To actually make use of Internet access, however, a 20-per-month data add-on is required.

In Italy the company has divided contracts into Easy Medium, Special Edition and Easy Large plans, priced at 60, 80 and 100 per month. The first offers 400 minutes and texts, while the last presents 900; the Special Edition plan is unusual in that it allows 7,000 minutes and texts to other Vodafone subscribers, but only 250 those outside the company's umbrella. In all cases, users get 600MB of data. Phone prices start at 199 and 269, and shrink to 49 and 119 under Easy Large.
