Meteor don’t seem to sell the iPhone in Ireland. But I have noticed Meteor offer some very attractive price plans that include data, that would work nicely with the iPhone. I currently pay 45 euro for 150 minutes and texts on O2 with 1GB data, under an 18month contract, that price plan included an iPhone 4 device.
However, if you find yourself not in a contract take a look at networks like Meteor. Yes Meteor is owned by the mammoth that is Eircom, who strangely also own E-Mobile.Meteor market themselves as a teen/young adult network, but their smart phone plans are nothing to look down your nose at.
For example they have a contract free ( I imagine there is some 30 day clause in there somewhere) plan with 200 minutes, 200 texts, 1GB of data and if you sign up online – free texts and calls to other meteor customers – all for 25 euro! Any other network close to this value?
I have had an issue or two with their customer service in the past, but hopefully that was a one off. So if you are out of contract, and your network is offering you what they are calling an “upgrade” with an 18 month ball and chain attachment, check out the SIM free plans on other networks . You could save yourself the contract and some monthly dosh for the pub!
