Mobile phone carriers are trying to get rid of their iPhones by lowering their prices and setting up new affordable services. This marks the beginning of the end for the once highly acclaimed Apple product.
AT&T is now offering the handset without a contract agreement, however only for its existing customers. The handset is also sold without requiring AT&T’s existing users to activate the device. The iPhone is available for $599, the 8GB version, while the 16GB is available for $699.
In the same time, O2 announced in the UK that starting with April 3, the company will offer the 8GB version for free if the customers signs a two-year contract agreement and chooses a plan of at least 34.26 pounds per month. The 16GB version will be also available for free with the same service, however a 44.05 pounds per month plan is required.
Another mobile phone carrier, Fido has not officially announce any new plans regarding the iPhone, however the company has reduced the iPhone costs, especially for the 16GB version.
Overall, it seems that the iPhone days are numbered.
