Aircel and Airtel are the two partners that are offering Apple iPhone 3GS in India. Airtel so far has not announced any reduction in price of iPhone 3GS and is selling the same for Rs. 20,908, which is more than double the price of Aircel's version.
To further sweeten the deal, Aircel is also offering unlimited 3G data for a full one year with the purchase of iPhone 3GS by paying an additional Rs. 3,000 upfront at the time of purchase. However, this option is available only in the circles where Aircel is offering 3G and there is a fair usage cap of 2GB per month, post which users can continue to download unlimited data at the speed of 128kbps.
For the circles in which 3G is not available subscribers will be able to get unlimited 2G data (with the fair usage cap of 2GB), 1000 local/national minutes and 2500 local/national SMS for six months on payment of Rs. 3,000.
However, if an Aircel subscribers opts for the company's 'money saver plan,' then they would have to pay Rs.20,990 for this very iPhone.
Aircel is offering Apple iPhone 4 16 GB model for Rs.34,500 and the 32 GB one for Rs. 40,900 while Airtel's website has listed both these variants as 'out of stock'.
