No second iPhone operator for the UK
The rumors of a second UK mobile operator for iPhone are unfounded. This was reported by O2 in a short interview with Macworld UK. "We have a multi-year agreement for an exclusive with Apple – says a spokesman – and we are just in the first year of this exclusive".
The position taken by O2 is confirmed by Orange, the operator who reportedly had the press, the possibility of having iPhones even before Christmas. According to the carrier owned by France Telecom who in the transalpine country supports Apple in the sale of the phone, she denied having an agreement to do so in the United Kingdom, although she would certainly be interested in entering into one.
The only possibility for Orange to have iPhone lies in a breakdown of the agreement (according to some three-year rumors) with O2, a breakdown that could occur if Cupertino considered the marketing strategies adopted by its partner as ineffective. But, for now, this road is closed because O2 itself claims that "Apple is very satisfied with the partnership we have with them".
