Orange joins iPhone 5 fray with interesting package

You can get a free iPhone 5 (16GB model) for as little as £46 per month on a two year contract on the Works with 3GB internet. What’s more add another £5 and get unlimited internet.

As for all “The Works” package, you get unlimited calls and unlimited texts, something we believe will become standard on all top of the range plans. The cheapest “The Works” plan comes with 1GB internet with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 upfront fee costing £110, £220 and £270 respectively.

This means that the plan with the lowest TCO comes in at £974. All the offers exclude Wi-Fi and plans that cost £41 a month or more are subject to a £50 deposit with Orange refunding the deposit back on the customers’ bill when they stay with Orange for four months.

Oddly enough, Orange will not be offering “The Works” plan to business customers and users who want to switch to 4G will have to agree with EE on a new minimum term.

You can win an iPhone 5 in our iPhone 5 competition by answering a simple question about what generation the Phone 5 is. ITProPortal reported live on Apple’s announcement. Other than the iPhone 5, we saw new iPod devices but no cheaper version of the iPhone 4S, an iPad mini and potentially a 13in Macbook Pro with Retina Display.
