Commenting on the launch, Graham Stapleton, UK CEO at Carphone Warehouse, said: “iD gives increased flexibility and value to customers who are getting increasingly frustrated with the ‘one size fits all’ approach. Launching with a range of plans – including 12 and 24 month contracts alongside 30 day options – means we can offer solutions based on how customers actually use their mobile phone.”
In addition to the new 4G plans, Carphone Warehouse has also announced a deal with the Samsung A3 – a 12 month 4G plan with 300 mins, 5000 texts and 1GB of data for £19.50. Another deal is for the Nokia 635 – a 24 month 4G plan with 150 mins, 5000 texts and 250MB of data for £7.50
Prices for the various 4G options are below:
The ‘Shockproof’ plans
