For example and i'm going to probably upset my gob****e friends still on Vodafone for this but the entry level iphone plan gives you 0 minutes and 0 texts to all your friends not on Vodafone and less data than 3 for 69.98 ohh and don't forget to add in 199.00 for the cost of the phone on a 24mt contract.
Seriously why did they bother.....
Samsung Galaxy S II on a 18 month plan:
€40 pm + €169 = €889
You get 350 flexi units, all you can eat data.
Free Three calls/texts.
Total comes out most expensive.
Network quality is questionable (2G/3G issues), support is crap.
€25/€30 pm + €170 = (25x12 + 30x6 + 170) = €650
200 mins/texts, 1G of data
Free Meteor calls/texts.
Coverage can be problematic.
€30 pm + €100 = €640
No inclusive other network minutes or texts, 1G of data.
Free Vodafone calls/texts.
Coverage is good.
Everyone I call or text is on Vodafone. With the above, Vodafone comes out as the cheapest and it's hard to argue that their network coverage is the best. For an additional €10.5 I would get 100 minutes of international minutes, that's 10c per minute for any international destination. International data roaming on Vodafone is also by far the cheapest out of the three. I don't need all you can eat data, 1G is enough.
