USA and UK: iPhone 3GS more expensive for those who already own iPhone 3G – Macitynet.it logomacitynet1200wide 1

Apple and mobile operators in the US and UK have not provided a promotion for existing iPhone 3G subscription users who wish to purchase the new iPhone 3GS model. In the United States AT&T has already communicated that the cost of the iPhone 3G – iPhone 3GS upgrade of 200 dollars, about 140 euros: this is the expense that users must pay to stop the current subscription to which is added the cost of the new iPhone 3GS $ 199 for the 16GB and $ 299 for the 32GB by activating a new two-year subscription. AT&T also requires $ 18 added for the transaction.

In the United Kingdom, the cost of upgrading from iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS is higher and depends on the remaining contract months and the monthly amount. Also in the UK, the existing 18 or 24 month contract signed to have iPhone 3G must be terminated early, in order to be able to regularly buy the new iPhone 3GS, always subscribing to a new plan or buying it at full price to use it with a rechargeable plan. The cost of the upgrade can be calculated by multiplying the cost of the monthly subscription by the number of months remaining until the end of the existing contract. In the case of a user who purchased iPhone 3G on the day of launch by subscribing to an 18-month subscription, he must multiply the monthly rate of 35 pounds by the remaining 6 months, thus obtaining 210 pounds, equal to about 243 euros. If the two-year subscription is doubled, the figure doubles to around 486 euros.

As for our country, Tim and Vodafone have not yet published the plans and rates for the new iPhone 3GS, in any case it is possible to provide an additional cost for Italian users who already own 3G and want to switch to the new iPhone 3GS. Macitynet will return to the matter as soon as prices and tariffs of local operators are communicated.
