Carriers race to foster last-minute iPhone sales

French carriers Orange and SFR have announced significant discounts on the iPhone in the run up to Christmas. Orange is now selling the 16GB iPhone 3GS for 59, a reduction from 149; the 32GB model is priced at 179, while the 8GB iPhone 3G costs just 19. To qualify buyers must accept an Origami contract, which starts at roughly 41 per month.

SFR's phone prices are slightly higher, ranging from 29 for the 3G, to 99 for the 16GB 3GS and 199 for the 32GB model. SFR's cellphone marketing director, Laurent Lame, claims that the sale is a result of the iPhone being "the" phone for 2009. Both carriers are also likely trying to pull in more lucrative subscribers, and minimize stock, since new models of the iPhone will likely ship in June or July.
