With the new unlocked 999 euro iPhones in Germany, at least one wireless carrier is taking advantage of the opportunity to try to win over some iPhone customers.
German mobile phone provider Debitel AG is offering customers a 600 euro sign-up bonus to iPhone buyers to switch from T-Mobile to their service.
T-Mobile was forced by an temporary injunction to offer an unlocked iPhone in Germany without a required contract. The normal German iPhone costs 399 euro but requires a 2 year contract. For 999 euro, customers can now buy an unlocked and contract-free iPhone. Debitel's bonus is meant to offset this unlocking cost to get customers.
