    News - Tesco releases iPhone 4 tariffs - and they're not bad

    We hoped Tesco would offer something different to the main network operators and it hasn't let us down.

    Cracking deal (all things considered) £589 for 1yr on the 16GB, just £90 more than the phone alone SIM-free.

    1720 points over the year (£20 tariff) worth £68.80 (I think) in clubcard vouchers.

    Methinks my mind is made up!

    I cannot believe what a good deal that is. Sorry Android but my mind is now made up. Id be a bit gutted if I had pre ordered it with any of the other networks though!

    Still more than I am willing to pay for any phone, but a much better deal by far.

    Big up to tesco for pushing 12 month contracts - they're getting far too rare!

    I remember the days when trying to get someone to sign a £25/month contract or when 18month contracts came in & it was nigh on impossible, people just refused point blank as it was too expensive, oh how things change!

    Re: News - Tesco releases iPhone 4 tariffs - and they're not bad

    I think something is wrong when a car costs more than my house, or a bottle of champagne costs more than I make in 10 years, or a footballer earns more in a week than I do in a year.... These things are all relative, it's no different to paying hundreds of pounds for a pair of designer shoes/sunglasses etc except at least you have a decent specced phone out of the deal!

    Exactly Rob B, different horses for courses as the phrase goes. Folks have different values and interests and wants. The world would be a boring place if we were all the same.

    Re: News - Tesco releases iPhone 4 tariffs - and they're not bad

    They were doing so well until the £45/month option became a 24 month contract.

    That'd be the option I would have chosen, if it was for 12 months, albeit with a slightly higher phone cost perhaps.


    The only thing is, what does unlimited mean in terms of Tesco's terms?
