Tesco have finally launched their iPhone 4 pricing plans and we’re impressed. The price-slashing supermarket has actually offered a decent £20 a month contract.
For £20 a month you’ll get unlimited texts, 250 minutes a month and a respectable 1GB of data. (In these dark days of limited data deals, that’s not too bad.)
Tescos are one of five UK networks that will sell the iPhone, the others include O2, Vodafone, Orange and Three.
The catch with the Tesco contract is the up-front price. You’ll need to hand over £369 to get the iPhone 4 on their cheapest deal. Tescos is offering a good deal for people who don’t want to be tied into long-term expensive contracts – all their contracts are a standard 12 months allowing people the option out anytime after that’s over.
Okay, so in our quest for the best budget contract, here are a few sums:
The Tescos £20 a month deal
[1gb, 250min, unlimited txts] £349 + 24×20 = £829
we’ve stretched it out over 2 years for comparison, though you could just get it for one:
£349 + 12×20 = £589
