iPhone’s authorised carrier, O2 has finally has shed some light on its much awaited pay-as-you-go (PAYG) plan for selling iPhones in UK, and is scheduled to roll out the plan on 16 September.
Under this scheme, 8GB model of the iPhone would cost GBP350, whereas 16GB version would have a price tag worth GBP400.
O2’s basket is full of attractive offerings, which include - unlimited web browsing and Wi-Fi for the first year, followed by a meagre GBP10 per month charge for the same, however, O2’s ‘excessive usage policy’ forbids any sort of professional usage of the unlimited browsing, and it can only be availed for private and non-official purposes.
The plan will provide the flexibility to opt from the company’s Pay and GO tariff, which offer more free minutes after every top-up, like O2’s “Favourite Place” tariff that provides 500 free minutes on a monthly recharge of GBP10 to GBP14.
The service doesn’t extend its support for visual voicemail and call merging features of the iPhone, and before switching to the service, users must be careful about saving their crucial voicemails.
Expect first-generation iPhones to be firm favourites on the second hand market and on Ebay.
