    Every little helps as they say. Now this might shake up the market.

    My iphone contract is due up in January, so I'm looking forward to possibly getting staff discount from Tesco.

    excited about this! I've been on Tesco PAYG for a few years now and have always been really pleased with them, I was planning to go on contract and get an Iphone soon but was sorry that I would have to go onto a different network. Maybe I won't need to, yay!

    Great news, surely this will open up the market a bit?
    I got a bar of chocolate through the post from O2 recently, just as a "thank you" apparently. I'd rather they reduced the £45 they charge me a month for my iPhone instead though!!!!

    Up for renewal in Jan/Feb time, so hopefully prices will tumble after Christmas

    well, o2 are saying that this is in conjunction with themselves, blah blah blah - http://twitter.com/O2/status/6045619535, so really I don't see a price drop at all... it's just another retailer, and another little name on the carrier. Tesco Mobile is just an virtual network that uses o2..

    The word is that Apple are dictating the price the networks can charge, if that's true there's little chance of any price drop. . .

    There is already a discussion thread HERE. Why didn't you just insert the MSE post header into the first post of that thread?

    I really don't think this will cause a price drop or war. My bet is the same tariffs as O2 and Orange, but with Clubcard points, so the only thing to differentiate will be:

    Orange: Orange Wednesdays
    Tesco: Clubcard Points
    O2: Priority List

    and when they announce it:

    3: Free curry with every call to customer services.
    In "Monopoly", what makes the "Super Tax" so super?

    There won't be a price war with this for two reasons, like nearly all apply products apple control the prices which is why you struggle to get a good discount anywhere (and they call microsoft!) and also because Tesco will be doing this in a joint venture with O2 so there won't be any price cuts. Maybe just a few tesco extra points or something. Orange didn't help anything they actually offered a worse deal with the terrible peaks on internet usage so, so far more people getting the deal hasn't helped us.
