Orange removes unlimited data after refreshing iPhone tariffs
Orange has refreshed its iPhone tariffs and removed unlimited data from its tariff bundles for the product.
The operator is now offering tariffs branded iPhone ‘standard’ plans and iPhone ‘extra’ plans.
The iPhone ‘extra’ plans are offering customers less minutes in exchange for a photo messaging bundle, an Orange Maps App and a larger data allowance.
Customers will get a free iPhone 4 16GB on a £50 a month contract for 24 months on both tariffs.
The two new tiers of pricing mean that for an iPhone 4 on a 24 month contract at £35 a month, paying £119 for the handset, customers will have to choose between two different sets of benefits.
On an iPhone ‘standard’ plan they will receive 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500 MB of data. On an iPhone ‘extra’ plan they will get 400 minutes, unlimited texts, 750MB of data, 50 photo messages and Sat Nav with Orange maps.
In March, Orange overhauled its consumer tariffs so they included multimedia services. At the same time it re-introduced the Canary tariff on pre-pay and contract.
O2 removed unlimited data plans in June this year. At the time, Mobile reported that Orange was likely to follow suit in the summer.
