iPhone 4 price comparison

Okay so finally Vodafone have released pricing for the UK iPhone 4 release. So that means Orange and o2 can be compared with the tariffs for Vodafone now. Three haven’t yet released their pricing strategy for the iPhone but given their 3G network coverage they shoudl be one to watch.

Usual disclaimers about checking pricing is correct before purchasing etc. Prices correct at time of publishing etc etc…
I’ve only compared the lowest two tariffs for each as to be honest I’m not interested in the more expensive tariffs as I hardly use my call or text allowance as it is.

Unlocking O2 iPhone in the UK

With the news that you can now officially unlock your O2 iPhone so that it works with any SIM card from November 10th is great but of course you’ll need your IMEI and although on most phones you type *#06# on the keypad with the iPhone it’s easier to plug it into your computer and look in iTunes. Initially you will see your phone number and you just need to click this and the display cycles through to show your iPhone IMEI and then your ICCID before returning to your phone number.
If you are a pay monthly customer your iPhone can be unlocked at anytime free of charge. If you unlock your handset and place a non-O2 sim into it, you will still have to honour the remainder of the minimum term on your contract with O2. PAYG customers have to wait a while and pay a one off £15 fee. Details of how to do this for either option are available at the official O2 iPhone unlocking website – Unlock my iPhone

o2 and ticketmaster

So the o2 page for priority tickets to see Michael Jackson simply has a link to ticketmaster anyway! So that was kind of pointless. Now the ticketmaster website has a lovely message:

Your wait time is approximately 15 minutes or more

If you refresh this page or hit the back button, you will lose your place in line!
We’ll continue to update the page to let you know approximately how much time you have to wait and
we’ll tell you if we’re able to find tickets.

So that’s 15 minutes to let you know if we have tickets even…
