    absolute rubbish plans not much of a competition with orange or O2 and not selling on Pay and go as yet.

    This has just helped me finalising my decision of getting it on pay and go.

    For me, the unlimited text package would be a winner. The free vodafone to vodafone calls could be popular too if you have a lot of people on vodafone to call.

    Does anyone know how the PAC code transfer will work as this is a preorder? I want to move from T-mobile to Vodafone for the iphone and it says I need to PAC code now to buy online but the phone isn't released till 14th Jan...

    Was hoping to order mine today as I notice quidco haven't changed their offer yet for the 90 for a monthly contract...orange did this quickly to exclude the iphone...
    Vodafone site also has the older model available for free on the 35/month contract...

    A pac's valid for 30 days (and take 3 day to come through) so if you order yours today, you should get it (the pac) by the 24th. When you get the phone and activate the sim the port will go though and your old number will move over in a few days...

    The Vodafone tariffs are pretty good if you're a heavy texter, though they are lacking on minutes. The price of the phone is cheaper too.

    It's been repeatedly said Apple control the pricing and plans on iPhone. And despite a lot of MSE talking up the fact more networks means more competition, it was always on the cards that all the networks would have to play ball with Apple or suffer stock shortages.

    If you want the must have phone you have to pay Apples price.

    The phone seems more expensive than what O2 have on offer.


    Was there thinking Vodafone would bring out contracts that were a bit more competitive. Yeah, let's just give them Unlimited Texts instead of 1200! -.-


    The "upgrades" to iPhone are pants too - has anyone tried haggling?
    Anything that I do say, is strictly my opinion

  • p1tse
    i would be interested if anyone has haggled for something better than the current prices.

    i know the likes of other network providers offer such as friends and family with 30% diso!!!! on tarfiff, so there must be some moveabilty

    Whilst the networks were subsidising the phone, there was never going to be a "price war". I can't believe how many "experts" couldn't / refused to realise this.

    Vodafone and Orange are not using the iPhone as a sales tool. Vodafone have openly admitted that selling the iPhone was more about customer retention rather than customer acquisition. Orange have made similar noises.

    iphone on other operators
    An alternative to avoid paying hefty tariffs/call charges is to get an unlocked iphone. By getting an official unlocked phone you can then bring it back to apple if anything goes wrong and it is still within a year. Unofficially unlocked phones require someone to hack the software which will void any warranty.

    O2 are now advertising that all customers on monthly contracts can get their phones unlocked free of charge and pay & Go customers can get it unlocked for 15 after 1 yr of use. So no doubt there will be people willing to sell their free upgrades.

    If you can get an unlocked phone it is then possible to use any of the networks and potentially get a much cheaper deal. 3 are currently offering 300 mins, unlimited texts and unlimited internet for 15/month. As 3 is already on a 3G network this should work well with the web services on iphone.

    Also note currently Hong kong sell their iphones already unlocked if you can get hold of one.
