The new iPhone 5 originally only had 2 contract deals available on the 3 Mobile network with both asking an upfront price of £79 for the iPhone 5 plus either £34 or £36 per monthline rental costs, this was until last week when the dedicated 3G network released another 3 new contract offers but still no free phone deals.
Today, the network has released a new contract deal that offers the iPhone 5 free of charge for the first time on their service and is called Unlimited Internet 1000, the line rental price is £44 per month which is the cheapest currently available with a free phone beating both Orange and O2 by £2 per month, this new tariff includes 1000 minutes of calls, 5000 text messages and unlimited data usage every month.
Not quite as competitive as O2 & Orange’s free iPhone 5 deals which pack in unlimited minutes but both of them have capped data allocations at 1GB and 3GB respectively instead of 3 Mobile’s unlimited offering which they call ‘All You Can Eat Data’.
If you are looking for iPhone 5 deals then you are probably already aware that there are drastic stock shortage in the UK, however 3 Mobile promise to have your new phone with you by October 17th, they are one of the few UK retailers who are letting you know when you can expect delivery of you shiny new iPhone 5.
There’s also some more good news! The network is also offering exactly the same contract deals for the white iPhone 5 for those that prefer the lighter coloured edition of the phone!
