    Default Orange to Start Selling iPhone in UK on Nov. 10: Report


    According to the Times Online, France Télécom's Orange subsidiary has decided it will start selling the iPhone in the UK on November 10, ending the exclusive arrangement that had been enjoyed by Telefónica's O2.

    Ever since September, when Orange announced it had won the rights to be the iPhone's second service provider in the Unied Kingdom, the exact date it would begin service has been a closely-held secret. More than 200,000 customers have reportedly pre-registered to buy the iPhone from Orange, even though the company had not announced a release date, details on the service plans or even a price for the phone itself.

    Orange has not officially announced a launch date for the iPhone, and declined to comment on the Times report.

    Vodafone Group PLC, which negotiated its own arrangement to sell the iPhone in the UK and Ireland starting next year, may have the most to lose from this announcement. Potential customers may not wish to wait several more months to buy an iPhone from Vodafone, especially if reported plans to improve on O2's spotty service in London come to fruition.

    O2 will continue to carry the iPhone, but has more recently diversified its offerings as the exclusive UK carrier for the new Palm Pre.

    not just in the US, in Canada too. I am a loyal Rogers customer but I would be happy if the Globe&Mail's report (that Bell was getting the iPhone) was true so that the prices will drop due to competiton

    I say T-mobile US needs to start selling the iPhone
    I'll sell my iPhone and get a T-mobile 3G capable one
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    I wonder if Orange will be able to unlock O2 iPhones to work on there network?

    I was reading something about O2 will unlock them to be used on any network when the iPhone goes to other carriers aslong as the person is finished there contract.

    I am happy to see the iPhone moving on and consumers should have unlocked iPhone without all the pressure of 1600 errors and successful 3g service more or less.

    Or they might have photoshopped the image.

    Well... I spoke to O2 last week and asked them about unlocking my iphone 3g and they said that they were not unlocking at the minute, but when other operators take over the iphone they are looking to unlock them....

    FYI-^^^^^^^^^if you want to have signal bars and 3G and no carrier open "make it mine and just tap the space bar and press "carrier" then done and press the home button then all you will see is signal bars and "E" or "3G" or you WiFi triangle. No big deal.

    Default I Wonder!
    I wonder how many of these 200,000 new users of the iPhone will be so happy once they find out the abismal battery life and lack of full bluetooth functionality!
