Softbank iPhone cuts

Japanese carrier Softbank is introducing a revised version of its iPhone plans, an announcement reveals. The new options mean iPhone customers can pay as little as 2,990 ($28) per month. The price cuts reflect a new data rate system at the company, which scales in terms of regular fees. People are still able to use an unlimited amount of data, but are now being charged based on usage up to a certain maximum. Plans begin at a low of 1,695 ($16), and as data usage increases, increase to a maximum of 5,985 ($56).

Softbank has also announced that they will begin taking fulfillment orders on iPhones starting August 6th, to ensure that customers who want the device will be able to get one. The device has been on sale in Japan since July 11th.
