O2 Increases Call, Text Allowances Under Current iPhone Plans

Britain's O2 is bumping up the call and text allowances for its iPhone plans (via Macworld UK).

Users on the cheapest plan will now receive three times the call allowance (now 600 minutes) and be able to send 500 SMS messages (up from 200) as part of the new deal. Other iPhone plans have seen similar bumps.

The allowance hikes apply to both existing and new customers. O2 says the new rates should be applied to existing customers by mid-March at the latest.
