Orange Sells 30,000 iPhones in First Five Days in France
About 15 percent of customers have apparently unlocked their phones.
French mobile phone operator Orange sold 30,000 iPhones in the five days following its November 29 launch, the company said Wednesday.
In comparison, German operator T-Mobile said it sold 10,000 on November 9, the day the phone went on sale there. Apple’s U.K. partner O2 said the phone is its fastest-selling ever, but refused to give sales figures.
Some 80 percent of Orange customers bought the iPhone with an “Orange for iPhone” service contract that includes unlimited access to the Internet and the Visual Voicemail service.
Those customers paid Ã¢â€šÂ¬399 (US$585) for their iPhone, the same price T-Mobile charges for its iPhones.
Orange also offers the iPhone for Ã¢â€šÂ¬549 with other types of contract, or Ã¢â€šÂ¬649 without a contract.
