OK, so now we’ve got the shakes out of our system with the main pricing for the iPhone, let’s take us a look at the ancillary pricing – by that, I mean the other things you are going to pay for – this inlcudes:
- Picture messaging
- Internet Tethering
- Travelling abroad
Right, let’s take these bad boys one by one:
Picture messaging (MMS)
As you might (or might not) expect, the costs are different between Pay Monthly and PAYG users – first of all, Pay Monthly:
You can use your text bundle to send picture messages in the UK and abroad. One picture message equals four normal texts, or if you’ve got no bundle texts left, they cost 24.47p a message (21.28p excluding VAT).
Picture messages cost 25p each, or you can buy a bundle with our Messaging Bolt Ons. For example, Messaging 50 gives you 50 texts for £3.99 a month, and a picture message uses three of those texts
If you choose the 3GB Bolt On and need more data one month, you can upgrade to the 10GB Bolt On or buy an extra 1GB for £4.89, both include unlimited Wi-Fi. If you don’t use it all, the rest of the extra 1GB will disappear at the end of the month.
Your Internet Tethering Bolt On allowance only works in the UK. If you use your iPhone as a modem abroad, it’ll cost £2.94 a MB (£2.55 without VAT) in the EU and £6 a MB everywhere else.
