Orange to offer iPhone service in the UK?
So, UK is going to have another carrier to deliver the iPhone. Their current iPhone carrier is O2, but later this year Orange will join the club. There are already a couple of countries who have more than one carrier for the iPhone, like Italy and Czechia. Maybe this can change some things elsewhere in the world. Hope, Verizon can join the club in the US.
28th September 2009, 08.30am: Orange UK and Apple have reached an agreement to bring iPhone 3G and 3GS to Orange UK customers later this year. Orange globally now offers iPhone in 28 countries and territories.
Orange, which has the largest 3G network covering more people in the UK than any other operator, will sell iPhone in all Orange direct channels including Orange shops, the Orange webshop and Orange telesales channels, as well as selected high street partners. A pre-registration site for customers to log their interest has already been launched at www.orange.co.uk/iPhone.
More information on pricing, tariffs and availability dates will be released in due course.
