The phone can now be bought on contract through shops of the Three network in Britain. If you don’t have a brick-and-mortar shop near you the Three website will start taking orders next month from October 18th.
They’re offering it for an initial price of £99 on a 24-month contract of either £34, £36 or £38 a month. At its cheapest that makes £915 (£34 a month for two years + £99) or £1,011 at its most expensive (£38 a month for two years + £99). For comparison the phone is currently selling at around £620 SIM-free on Amazon.
Three’s £34 tariff comes with 8 hours 20 minutes of calling time, meanwhile the £36 tariff offers double that (16 hours 40 minutes). The £38 tariff has 1 day 9 hours and 20 minutes of calls, plus 3 days 11 hours and 20 minutes of calls time between other phones on the Three network.
They all have 5,000 texts and ‘all you can eat’ data, which means there’s no download limit. As a bonus the Xperia Z Ultra is 4G compatible, and it’ll be ready for when Three starts providing 4G coverage sometime in the future.
