UK: Prada Phone 3.0 by LG now up for pre-order on contract, free from £31/month, ships on January 30
The Prada Phone 3.0 by LG (or Prada Phone by LG 3.0, or LG Prada 3.0) is about to become available in the UK shortly. You’ve been able to pre-order one for a few days, yet up until today only in SIM-free and unlocked form. If you’re more of a fan of long-term contracts with operators, today’s your lucky day.
That’s because Phones 4U has started taking pre-orders for the LG Prada 3.0 with contracts from either Vodafone or Orange. The phone is free with plans starting at £31 per month. Both operators have a contract of that amount on offer. While Vodafone’s offers you 900 minutes, 3,000 texts, and 500 MB of data each month, Orange gives you just 600 minutes and 250 MB of data alongside the same 3,000 texts.
There are other, differently-priced options though. You can even get the Prada 3.0 on a plan as low as £26 per month, but you’ll have to shell out £89 for the privilege upfront.
Whatever you choose, shipments are going to begin on January 30. Which is interesting, because every other UK retailer that lists the Prada Phone 3.0 says it will ship in February. So it looks like Phones 4U got itself a nice little exclusivity deal here, even if just for a few days.
