3 rules out iPhone move


3 has today ruled out suggestions of it becoming the next operator to stock the Apple iPhone.

Speculation had grown that 3 would be the next mobile operator to announce it would be stocking the Apple iPhone, after Orange and Vodafone confirmed they would sell the 3G and 3G S handsets in the coming months.

However 3 today ruled out making any move to bring the device to its network and will instead concentrate on launching a number of other data centric devices in the near future.

A 3 spokesperson said: “We look to offer customers great value for money with fantastic handsets and very competitive tariffs. We will not currently be ranging the Apple iPhone.

“We’ve got several strong handsets coming soon that we know our customers will love.”
