Bouygues sets date for second French iPhone launch

Bouygues picks iPhone date

French carrier Bouygues Telecom has set a date of April 29th to begin carrying the iPhone, an announcement reveals. Subscriptions will range in price from approximately 38 to 77 a month, and provide anywhere from two hours of voice calling to four hours of daily talk plus unlimited nights and weekends. Unlike the plans offered in many countries, all of the Bouygues options will include both unlimited texts and unlimited data.

Bouygues will become only the second carrier in France to sell the iPhone, joining chief rival Orange. Its sales are possible only as a result of a recent government ruling, which declared that Orange's exclusive arrangement with Apple violated local competition rules. Although Orange does sell an iPhone that can be used with any French carrier, it is considerably more expensive, and sold only through Orange and Apple outlets.
