iPhone 3GS Rival Alert : Orange San Francisco II Free On 10 Month Contract

Orange has introduced a new hybrid deal that combines Pay As You Go and monthly contract characteristics; the deal offers the new Orange San Francisco II for £99.99 and £100 free credit when you top up £10 for 10 consecutive months.

In other words, you "pay" £200 over 10 months and you get the Orange San Francisco II for free. The phone is not currently available on a Pay Monthly contract and the credits can be used for free internet, free calls and texts or even free music.

Orange also provides 2-for-1 cinema tickets as part of its Orange Wednesdays, magic numbers which allows unlimited calls to three Orange numbers, and a free movie on iTunes via Orange film to go.

The phone itself is an improvement on the original Orange San Francisco manufactured by ZTE. It has a five megapixel camera with flash, a 800MHz ARM11 system on chip, 512MB RAM, a 3.5-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, Orange's own Signal Boost and a 2GB microSD card.

T-Mobile also has a similar phone, based on the same hardware but with a different shell, called the Vivacity which can be had on a two year contract with 100 minutes, unlimited data and 100 texts for £10.21 per month.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
