Vodafone UK launches the iPhone, sales expected to reach 50,000 on first day

Updated 4 years ago

Vodafone UK officially jumped on the iPhone bandwagon by launching both the iPhone 3G and 3GS today, joining O2, Orange and Tesco Mobile in the now non-exclusive UK market. Vodafone customers looking to keep costs low can score an older 8GB iPhone 3G for free with a minimum monthly plan of £35 ($57USD). Folks that must have the latest and greatest still have the pleasure of receiving a free iPhone but those high rollers will have to agree to a minimum monthly tariff of £45 ($73USD) for an iPhone 3GS 16GB or £75 ($122USD) for the 32GB version. Sales of the iPhone are expected to be brisk with Vodafone moving an estimated 50,000 handsets in this first day of sales.
