iPhone 3G pricing details

Vodacom launched the Apple iPhone today after months of speculation on both the launch date and pricing.

Vodacom will be making iPhone 3G available to both prepaid and contract customers. Contract customers can choose between Vodacom’s iPhone 120s, iPhone 240 and iPhone 500s packages to get the iPhone 3G at reduced once-off rates.

Depending on the choice of package, iPhone 3G is available from R1799 for the 8GB model on an iPhone 500s package, or from R2899 for the 16GB model on the same package.

Prepaid customers can purchase the 8GB iPhone 3G for a cash price of R6389.00 and a 16GB iPhone 3G for a cash price of R7569.00.

Contract customers will be offered up to 250 MB data, as well 100 SMSs included in the price of the relevant iPhone 3G package.  All Vodacom’s iPhone 3G packages make provision for domestic call tariffs and once the plan’s monthly limit for data usage has been exceeded, data usage will be charged at R1.50 per MB and standard SMS rates will apply.

The South African version of the iPhone is not network locked.

The following table provides the different contract, financed and prepaid options available to consumers interested in owning an iPhone 3G.
