Apple iPhone 4S complete costs over the whole 24 months, with Orange, Three, T-Mobile and Vodafone – in an easy to read table



Apple’s new iPhone 4S has just become available to pre-order with all of the mobile phone networks, where the prices and tariff details have been announced today with a delivery date for the handset of October 14th.

One Mobile Ring has decided to publish an easy-to-read total cost of ownership guide for the iPhone 4S, which takes into account the accompanying tariff prices over the entire duration of the 24-month contract duration – all in order to show exactly how much will be spent at the very end.

On paper, Three appears to have the lowest costs for the Apple iPhone 4S mobile phones and across all of the various storage sizes too, but there is a trade-off as it does have the highest costing tariff.

Orange has the lowest costing contract for the iPhone 4S, with nearly the highest costing mobile phones out of all the networks but the lowest costing TCO – at the end of the 24 month period.

There is a trade-off here too, as the Orange deal has the lowest accompanying minutes, text message bundle and data allowance with 50 minutes, 50 text messages and a 100MB mobile broadband offering.

Three has the best package offer, with 300 minutes, a 5,000 text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance where only T-Mobile has the same data package.

* UPDATE #1 *

O2 has now released their prices for their Apple iPhone 4S, which now appears to be the cheapest offering of all the mobile phone networks and for all the different storage capacities too – over the whole 24 month contract duration. Once again, there is a trade-off as the accompanying contract only has 100 minutes, a 500 text message bundle and a 100MB data allowance.

* UPDATE #2 *

Vodafone has now updated their initial costs for the Apple iPhone 4S mobile phones, which has now been taken in account in the new table below.
