Cheapest iPhone 4: Graphs & Data

iphone 4

So Apple’s newest phone, the iPhone 4, will soon be released, and the networks selling it have all been announcing their tariffs and costs for the phone.

Because of the number of options available, it’s pretty difficult to weigh up which is the best deal, but thankfully, help is at hand.

Jamie Edwards has produced a spreadsheet showing the cost of the iPhone 4 from 02, Orange and Vodafone, which will show you the total cost of both the 16GB and 32GB models over the course of the contract, and the effective monthly cost over 18 months.

Edwards has also calculated what he calls the “talk time value index”, which compares the total cost of ownership (TCO) over the life of the contract with the amount of talk time that you get, to produce a handy comparison – wouldn’t it be great if all mobile phone tariffs and contracts had this included to help us compare plans?

The Guardian have taken the data and produced a graph of the deals:

So there you have it, makes it a far easier comparison, doesn’t it?

  1. Ha, ha, ha! :-)

    OTOH, why does any of this matter? The only difference should be the cost of the phone, right? Clearly, I’m missing something and it’s something that should have been noted here!
