Vodafone eyes iPhone switchers for fresh Sim-only deals

Carrot dangled for O2 contracts coming to an end

Top three mobile application threats

Vodafone has rolled out revamped Sim-only price plans.

Prices run from £10 to £30, the ten packages offer a mix of bundled talk minutes, texts, calls to landlines and mobile internet data transfer totals. Some also bundle BT Openzone Wi-Fi access.

Some contracts run for 30-day periods, others for a full year.

So, for £25 a month for one year, you could get yourself a Sim, 1200 talk minutes, unlimited texting, unlimited calls to landlines and 500MB of mobile broadband usage.

Or, for the the same money, you could take fewer minutes - 900 - but gain 1GB of mobile broadband and free Wi-Fi.

Vodafone indicated it was pitching the packages at iPhone users - presumably those who're coming up to the end of their 18-month O2 contracts and have asked that network to unlock their handsets.

Full details of the ten packages can be found here. ®
