O2, the iPhone’s carrier in the UK, has announced improved tariffs for iPhone users, offering more voice minutes and text messages. iPhone users on the most affordable (£35) plan will see their minutes jump from 200 to 600 a month, and their SMS limit go from 200 to 500 messages a month. Users signed up for the £45 plan will now get the same allowances as the old £55 plan: 1200 minutes (up from 600) and 500 text messages. Finally, iPhone users who were previously signed up for the £55 tariff may either drop down to the £45 plan, cutting their monthly bill by £10, or move to a £75 a month plan, which offers 3000 minutes and 500 SMS messages. The move is part of a broader improvement in O2’s offering for all mobile customers. The new tariffs will be available from February 1; O2 says that existing iPhone customers will be automatically transferred to the new plans by mid-March at the latest. [via Macworld UK]
