Three adds iPhone 4 to unlimited data package

AYCE on PAYG

Network operator Three has added the iPhone 4 to the list of pay-as-you-go smartphones it offers with "all-you-can-eat" mobile broadband.

Three will sell you a 16GB iPhone 4 for £500, or a 32GB model for £600 - both a tenner or so less than Apple charges. You'll have to add £15 to that for the airtime: 300 minutes of calls, 3000 texts and as much data as you need.

After 30 days you'll have to spend another £15 - or £25, if you want 200 extra voice minutes - for a further month's unlimited data, and so on. Or can top up by another amount and pay 11p per megabyte, though the first 150MB are free.

Alternatively, choose to pay £35 or £40 a month for two years, and you can have a 16GB iPhone 4 for, respectively, £69 or £19. The 32GB model costs £159 and £109, respectively.

Both rates include 5000 texts, 2000 minutes of calls to any network other than Three. Call someone else on Three and you get 5000 minutes of talk-time a month.

Three insists the data allowance - whether PAYG or on contract - is indeed limitless.
