T-Mobile puts iPhone 5 on preorder

Mobile phone operator T-Mobile, which is now part of Everything Everywhere, will offer the iPhone 5 on contracts starting from as little as £36 per month with the cost of the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models costing £109, £219 and £269 respectively.

The plan includes 2000 minutes plus unlimited T-Mobile calls, unlimited texts and unlimited internet for a total cost of ownership of £973. If that’s not enough, you can always upgrade to the £41 package which includes unlimited everything plus discounts varying between £50 and £70 on the iPhone 5 upfront fee.

As for the two other plans, £46 and £61, we’re unsure about their pertinence given that like the £41 Full Monty Plan, they come with unlimited everything. The only real difference is the upfront cost for the phone. But surely, you wouldn’t want to switch from a £41 to a £61 monthly contract (worth £480 over the duration of the contract) to save £30 on your upfront fee.

Note that the bundle doesn’t include Wi-Fi and the unlimited internet bundle doesn’t include tethering. T-Mobile also has a nifty four-point plan to get 4G. Grab the phone, check where 4G can be used when EE launch, sign up to the new EE plan of your choice and get a new nano SIM.

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.

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.
