O2 reacts to Orange’s iPhone announcement
O2 has reacted to Orange’s announcement today that it will stock both the 3G and 3GS version of the iPhone.
O2, which has held exclusivity on Apple’s iPhone since 2007, said it always knew the deal ‘was for a limited period of time’.
It said: ‘We’re proud that we’ve been able to offer an exclusive iPhone deal to our 20 million customers for the last two years. We always knew that iPhone exclusivity was for a limited period of time, but our relationship with Apple continues and will be an ongoing success. We have over one million iPhone customers and they remain very important to us.
‘We aim to offer our customers the best devices on the market, including becoming the home of smartphones and we are really pleased to now add another device in the Palm Pre. We also offer award-winning customer service and benefits, which is why more people choose O2 than any other network in the UK.’
