3 UK publishes iPhone 4 plans

Carrier still not selling device

Carrier 3 UK has finally published its pricing for the iPhone 4, which it has yet to launch. Plans start at a minimum of 30 per month, which brings 500 standard voice minutes. Five tiers exist, running up to 45 a month; beginning at one of two 35 options, as many as 2,000 voice minutes can be had. All plans include 5,000 3-to-3 minutes, 5,000 texts, and 1GB of cellular data.

As a rule, the prices of phones go down as the cost of plans increase. A 16GB model is 99 under the 30 plan, but free when paying 45 a month. A 32GB iPhone is 189 at the base tier, but 89 at the highest one. The two exceptions to this are in the second 35 tier, where people must pay 169 and 259 for 16 and 32GB phones, respectively, in order to secure 2,000 voice minutes.

3 has already begun selling 8GB black and 32GB white versions of the older iPhone 3GS, with plans ranging between 25 and 40 a month. It is not yet known when the iPhone 4 will become available, but 3 will be late in joining other supporting UK carriers including O2, Orange, Vodafone and Tesco. In the wings are T-Mobile UK, which has announced intentions, and Virgin Mobile, still in negotiations.
