iPhone 4S UK tariffs, price and release date

Apple’s latest must-have handset is up for grabs, and pre-order prices are looking good

The iPhone 4S might not have been a huge jump forward from the iPhone 4, but people are going to be clambering to get one anyway – and it starts now as pre-orders begin today. All operators are stocking the handset but only a few have announced it.

These are all the minimum priced black or white handsets on the same £31 (unless otherwise specified), two year contact, which all have at least 500MB free data. Free minutes and texts vary so it’s worth looking at the contract before you chose based on handset pricing alone. All of these can be pre-ordered from Phones4u.
