NetCom adds unlimited data option for iPhone in Norway

In addition to its previously announced iTalk plans for the iPhone 3G, Norwegian iPhone carrier NetCom has added a new plan dubbed iConnect that provides the user with unlimited monthly data for 499 NOK (~$98) a month. Unlike the iTalk plans, which include voice minutes, SMS texts, and data, the iConnect plan offers only unlimited cellular data and Wi-Fi, with charges of 0.45 NOK (~$0.09) per minute and 0.59 NOK (~$0.12) per SMS message. In addition to those charges, the iPhone 3G hardware will be more expensive when the customer selects the iConnect plan instead of an iTalk plan. With a 12-month agreement on the iConnect plan, the 8GB iPhone 3G will sell for 3,290 NOK (~$643), while the 16GB model will sell for 4,190 NOK (~$819). NetCom will begin sales of the iPhone 3G on July 11 at 6 a.m. at its City Gate store in Oslo.
