Assuming you're on an O2 contract send a blank text to 21202

Is it still locked down to the O2 network? As now considering getting one of these but don't want it locked.

It is still locked to O2. It would be interesting to know just how long O2's contract with Apple for exclusive rights is.

Pretty long I'd imagine, wouldn't really benefit either company to have more than one phone company selling the iPhone

PalaceMonkey 29-01-2009 04:48 PM

it'd benefit Apple not to be exclusive surely?

O2 must have paid lots & lots to get exclusivity

I think O2 signed a 5 year deal with Apple for the Iphone, could be wrong but I think it was 5 years.

When I gave notice on my T-mobile contract, saying I was moving to O2 for the iphone, they told me the exclusivity expires in 2009, and then T-mobile would also be able to offer it.

Of course I believed him.

According to the Guardian O2's contract with Apple runs until 2012. There was an option for renegotiation after two years but this has apparently passed without any change.

I got bored of waiting to be elligable for an upgrade with 02 so phoned them today and piled on the pressure. My new iPhone should be with me Monday / Tuesday :D

If more companies carried it then monthly contracts would drop, so unless all the companies paid Apple the same set monthly amount regardless of the contract people are on then it would. However if the iPhone is out on a 20 tariff then Apple aren't going to get as much from the contract compared to people being on the minimum of 35 contract (surely no-one has the 30 one?!)

I'm on the 30 one Steve. 600 minutes and 600 texts pm plus free insurance for 30 seems pretty good to me.

Kevin T 31-01-2009 12:54 AM

My phone bill is always between 50 and 60 so the 45 tarriff with unlimited downloads, 1200 mins and 500 texts seems good to me.

I went ahead and jailbroke my 3g iphone but alas, 3g doesn't seem to work anymore. Will restore when I'm back at work next week and potentially try again.

Nags.
