Vodafone UK sets iPhone date

updated 09:30 am EST, Mon December 21, 2009

Carrier to join sales next month

Vodafone UK will begin selling the iPhone on January 14th, says the BBC. Subscription fees will start at 30 per month under a two-year contract, while phones will cost between 59 for an 8GB iPhone 3G and 239 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. All plans will have a 1GB monthly data limit, which is higher than the 750MB cap imposed on Orange subscribers, but restrictive by comparison to O2's unlimited cellular data. Both Vodafone and O2 offer unlimited data via their associated Wi-Fi hotspots.

Subscribers must pay at least 35 per month for two years in order to qualify for a free iPhone 3G.

Until recently, Vodafone had only set an early 2010 timeframe for a launch. The UK iPhone market has become increasingly crowded in a space of months; while O2 was long the only official carrier, in has since been joined by Orange, and the O2-connected Tesco Mobile. Vodafone claims that it has been preparing its network for over a year to handle the data traffic generated by iPhone users.
