vodafone nz top iPhone 3g plan:
$250 a month for 1gb
600 free minutes
600 free texts
at&t top iPhone 3g plan:
$173 a month for unlimited data. thats right, you can use unlimited data, not 1gb like vodafone.
unlimited anytime minutes
additional $27 for unlimited text messaging plan
total(including text plan): $200 a month
at&t's iPhone 3g plan costs nz$50 less than vodafone's.
at&t gives users unlimited data and vodafone only gives you 1gb.
at&t gives you unlimited anytime minutes and vodafone only gives you 600 minutes.
at&t has unlimited text messaging(by adding on a texting plan which i included in the prices) and vodafone only gives you 600 texts.
and for those who say at&t do not give unlimited data, you are wrong. at&t have confirmed there is no fair use limit and it is unlimited and you can read it here:
there is also a petition for vodafone nz about the iPhone's high cost and low data caps here:
there is already 366 signatures.
my suggestion for vodafone
release a new iPhone 3g plan on a contract without any free minutes or free text messages and sell the iPhone 3g 8gb for $500 and the 16gb for $1000 but please have at the very least a 20gb data cap. you could have this plan for $100 a month.
