iPhone 4 prices finally announced by T-Mobile

Slow from the blocks and puffing along with costly tariffs

Better late than never. Well...

Two weeks after the world went mad for the arrival of the iPhone 4, UK mobile network provider T-Mobile has finally announced its tariffs and handset fees for the latest Apple smartphone.

Anyone waiting and hoping that the long overdue T-Mobile tariffs would bring competitor crushing, customer friendly prices, however, will be severely disappointed and with the iPhone 4 still displayed as 'coming soon' on the T-Mobile website, they will also have to continue their wait.

Seemingly only available on lengthy 24-month contracts, T-Mobile is offering the 16GB edition of the iPhone 4 with 100 minutes, 100 texts and 500MB of data for £25 per month. That isn’t the only cost though as the handset will set you back an additional one-off payment of £259.

For the standard £35 per month contract, the 16GB iPhone 4 will cost £189 with 900 minutes, 500 texts and just 750MB of data included. Those wanting the more spacious 32GB iPhone 4 will get the same inclusive content for the same monthly fee as the 16GB editions just at a higher one-off handset fee.

So, a 32GB model will cost £349 on a £25 per month plan and £269 per month if you stretch for £35 per month deal.

Although including T-Mobile’s ‘Flexible Booster’ deal which includes more minutes, texts or data, these tariff offerings are higher than those seen on other networks. This is clearly demonstrated on T-Mobile’s £60 per month plan that will still see a 32GB handset still costing £99, £70 more than the closest competitor.

If you don’t want to be stuck with the same handset for 24-months and have a hefty wedge of cash burning a hole in your pocket, however, T-Mobile is also offering the iPhone 4 at the £499 RRP set by Apple with £10 of credit thrown in, how lovely.
