I say 'may' as there's nothing on the Orange internal systems to confirm this (but that doesn't prove anything).

Prices will, most likely, be the same as O2. Anyone that really knows at Orange is under tight none disclosure agreements.
Apple dictate the price of the handset, so it'll be on minutes/texts...


just confirmed

The wait is almost over.

The iPhone 3G and 3GS have been reported to arrive on Orange on the 10th of November, precisely 2 years and one day after O2 secured exclusivity for the coveted device’s first iteration.

The end of O2’s exclusivity period has seen the other networks vying for rights to distribute, with Vodafone pledging to release the handset early in 2010 and 3 UK also announcing their intentions to stock the device in the new year.

Whilst the exact pricing is unknown, Orange – the British arm of France Telcom – has maintained that it will remain “competitive” to O2’s current offering.

Many hope that a price war in the lead up to Xmas will see the iPhone on Orange become a viable option for both those customers who deemed it too expensive, as well as those who O2’s golden handcuffs kept it out of their clutches.

With over 200,000 people already registering their interest on the Orange site, the iPhone is all but certain to see success as the shackles come off and the smart phone finally becomes available across more networks.
