Optimus iPhone 3G prices

Optimus, a Portugese carrier controlled in part by Sonae and France Telecom, has announced its prices for the iPhone 3G. To buy the phone without a contract will cost 499 for an 8GB model, or 599 for 16GB. After this shoppers will have to agree to a pre- or post-paid plan; the former has a 20 monthly recharge rate, but includes 250 texts and 250MB of Internet data; each voice minute or extra text costs 17 cents. The post-paid plans require minimum usages worth 15, 30 or 50, but gradually shrink the extra voice and text fees, while offering text and data bundles ranging between 100/100MB and 500/500MB.

Those choosing a subscription will be in a contract for two years, but will pay less for the phones. Plans are divided into 30-, 45- and 50-per-month options, offering the same voice, text and data gradations. Under the 30 plan however phones will cost 250 and 350, while the 45 plan will force drops to 200 and 300. With the 50 plan, finally, iPhones will cost 150 and 250.
