Three releases iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C tariff details

Three has released the tariff details for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, both of which are available today, September 20.

Just in time for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C release date, Three has announced the tariffs it is offering for the new iPhone duo.

“We are very excited to announce that the much anticipated iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are now available on our network”, said Thomas Malleschitz, Marketing Director at Three. “iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, along with our commitment to provide 4G at no extra cost, means that our customers can look forward to an even better network experience.”

The iPhone 5C tariffs had already been announced by Three in-line with the plastic-bodied iPhone’s pre-order status. It can be picked up for a £49 upfront handset fee on the One Plan and Ultimate 500 package.

The One Plan offers 2,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and unlimited data for £41 per month, while the Ultimate 500 tariff is £37 per month with the same data and text allowance but only 500 minutes.

“We will also continue to offer all-you-can-eat data, so customers can truly enjoy the full capabilities of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C without having to worry about exceeding their data allowance.”

The iPhone 5S is available across three different tariffs from Three, all with an one-off cost of £99 regardless of the internal storage model you choose.

As with the iPhone 5C, the Ultimate 500 tariff offers 500 minutes, 5,000 texts and unlimited data for £37 per month for the 16GB model, but the price jumps to £42 per month and £47 per month for the 32GB and 64GB models respectively.

The Ultimate 1000 tariffs bumps the inclusive call allowance to 1,000 minutes but the 16GB model will cost £39 per month, 32GB is £44 per month and 64GB is £49 per month.

Finally, the iPhone 5S can be purchased on the One Plan, with 2,000 minutes and the same minutes and data allowance as the other tariffs. The 16GB model is £41 per month, or you can spend £46 per month or £51 per month for the 32GB or 64GB editions.

Anyone purchasing either new iPhone will be able to upgrade to Three’s 4G network for free when it becomes available in December.
