France Telecom’s Orange will be holding late-night openings at 12 of its stores for the launch of Apple’s revolutionary iPhone on Wednesday November 28, 2007.
Bordeaux, Lille, Lyons, Marseilles, Montpellier, Nancy, Nice, Nantes, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse will be welcoming iPhone fans from 6:30pm onwards. In Paris, Orange will take this opportunity to inaugurate its brand new store at 125, avenue des Champs-Elysées.
As exclusive carrier for iPhone in France, Orange has developed a range of four “Orange for iPhone” plans.
All four “Orange for iPhone” plans include:
• Visual Voicemail, an industry first, which allows consumers to see a listing of their voicemails, decide which messages to listen to, then go directly to those messages without listening to previous messages. Just like email, Visual Voicemail on iPhone enables users to immediately access the messages that interest them most, in the order they want.
• Unlimited access to email and the Internet 3, which combined with the revolutionary features of iPhone, at last offers true Internet browsing
With this range of dedicated offers, Orange is meeting iPhone customer expectations in terms of voice, sms & wifi, with prices ranging from EUR49 to EUR119 euros per month, and the iPhone available for EUR399.
Orange is also offering iPhone at EUR549 to customers who do not wish one of the four “Orange for iPhone” plans and at EUR649, without a plan. The cost of unlocking the handset is 100 euros during the six months following the acquisition of the iPhone, regardless of the package chosen.
