    O2 updates tariffs to make iPhone more appealing

    The largely over-priced iPhone is set to receive new tariffs from UK operator O2 on February 1st, giving users more inclusive minutes and free text messages. Are lacklustre sales the reason for the change?

    More like it's there to combat the threat of people going getting the phone, taking it home and unlocking it and using another networks sim in it as well.

    18 month contract with 35 quid minimum charge is still a bit excessive really and I reckon people will still go and get the phone and unlock it.

    Apple should just release it to all on ALL networks. This way they will be able to increase their revenue

    O2 spokesman, Steve Alder states that "This is not a reaction to anything we're concerned about. We're very happy with the kind of customers, and the number of customers that we're getting."

    Did Steve say that with a straight face?

    Well pity fool them for paying over the odds for something people knew they'd be unlocking and sticking on other networks.

    As they say a fool and his money are easily parted
