At the time Orange didn’t specify when the handset would be available. Instead the network launched a Web page where customers could register their interest. It is thought that nearly 200,000 consumers signed-up via the Website.
Orange still won’t answer questions regarding the cost of tariffs. The handset will be available through Orange shops, its Website and also through high-street retailer Phones4U. It is also expected that Carphone Warehouse, which stocked the iPhone on O2, will offer the handset on Orange. However, Orange has yet to confirm this.
