Saturday 15 September 2012 | 13:32 CET | News
French operators Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom have all released pricing details and started taking orders for the iPhone5. Orange is selling the 16 GB version for EUR 199.90, EUR 329.90 and EUR 479.90, depending on the plan, the 32 GB model between EUR 299.90 and EUR 579.90, and the 64 GB between EUR 399.90 and EUR 679.90. Orange's online-only, no-contract brand, Sosh, is taking pre-orders for the 16GB version from EUR 639 payable up front, four times EUR 160, or EUR 459 plus either twelve instalments of EUR 15 or 24 instalments of EUR 7.50. SFR starts the 16 GB iPhone 5 at EUR 189.90 after a EUR 150 rebate, the 32 GB for EUR 289.90 and the 64 GB for EUR 389. Customers of Red, SFR's low-cost, youth-oriented brand, can pre-order the 16 GB for EUR 691, the 32 GB for EUR 798 and the 64 GB for EUR 914. Bouygues Telecom's online-only brand, B&You, will also sell the iPhone 5 from launch, and will start sending subscribers nano-Sim cards, which the new phone uses, for the first time on 18 September. The previous model, the iPhone 4, used the larger micro-Sim cards. Bouygues and B&You's are waiting until 21 September to announce their prices. Virgin Mobile announced it would sell the iPhone 5 from 21 September, but gave no pricing information. Free Mobile is also selling nano Sim cards, presumably for the new iPhone. Apple Stores in France are taking pre-orders now, starting at EUR 679 for the 16GB iPhone 5 for use on any network.
