SoftBank Offering Free iPhones With Contract
SoftBank, the official carrier of the iPhone in Japan, is offering new users a free 8GB iPhone 3G or a 16GB for ¥11,520 (~$120) when they agree to sign up for a two year contract for basic, premium, or student plans as part of their “iPhone for Everybody Campaign“. There is a catch, however. Instead of paying up front, users have to pay an additional ¥480 (~$5USD) on each monthly payment as part of the plan.
They have also dropped the price of the most expensive plan from ¥5985 (~$62USD) to ¥4410 (~$45USD) to make it more attractive. The promotion will last until the end of May of this year.
