Wow. Apparently, people love free data.
Just yesterday we reported that Vodafone have started selling pay as you go iPhone 4s with a very tempting offer for those who bought them: free data for a year with no minimum top-ups required.
And people liked the offer so much, that there’s no iPhone 4 to be had anywhere on Vodafone’s online system anymore. Furthermore, there isn’t even a clear date for when they’ll be back in stock.
You may think this was, in a way, to be expected, but it is rather shocking that an operator as large as Vodafone wasn’t able to accurately predict market demand for this offer.
Anyway, if you were interested in getting a PAYG iPhone 4 16 GB for £480 or the 32 GB model for £570 with 250 MB of free data each month for a year and an additional 1 GB of traffic on BT’s OpenZone WiFi per month, also for a full year, you’ll have to wait.
Apple sells the iPhone 4 variants SIM free and they can be had for just £19 or £29 more than on Vodafone, respectively, but that way you wouldn’t get the free data.
We’ll keep you posted.
