T-Mobile have joined Vodafone and O2 in offering a monthly iPhone4 package from £25 p.m. But is this likely to be the best iPhone4 contract for you?
Actually these deals look more a marketing ploy to get you into the shop to discuss what looks a great headline deal, but then to convert you to a £3 or £35 p.m. a month package using our mobile phone comparison service you can quickly see the added benefits of the slightly more expensive monthly tariffs.
The higher upfront payments for the phone mean that actually, over an 18 month contract period an iPhone4 will cost the same £819, but in most cases more free minutes and texts are offered on the £3 tariff.
