Looks like Bell is the first of the ‘Big 3’ to release their carrier upgrade pricing for the iPhone 5. As noted on their website, the 16GB iPhone 5 will cost $179.95 on a three year contract. It’s most likely Rogers and Telus will also have the same pricing scheme.
Check out the image below:
This is a $20 price increase compared to last year’s iPhone 4S upgrade pricing, which we can only assume the increase is based on increased component costs for the new iPhone. Last year’s pricing:
16GB – $159
32GB – $269
64GB – $369
This year’s iPhone 5 carrier upgrade pricing, if following the same formula from above:
16GB – $179.95
32GB – $279.95 (see update 2 below)
64GB – $379.95 (see update 2 below)
Bell has already confirmed with us pre-orders will take place online and in-store on September 14th. We’ll update this post to keep things simple as more carriers officially reveal their pricing.
Update (7:43pm PDT): Telus has a pre-order link up but it’s not live yet.
Update 2 (12:37AM PDT): Telus iPhone 5 pre-orders just revealed 32GB/64GB pricing at $279/379.
