- Don’t Buy Your iPhone From O2. They’ll Rip You Off
- Irish taken as fools as O2 Ireland iPhone package comes with attached “Paddy tax”
However, to see how exactly O2 are going to do off the back of screwing Irish consumers, you just have to see this quote from Dermott Jewell of the Consumer Association of Ireland from The Daily Mail (no link unfortunately):
However, Jewell feels that Irish consumers, in their rush to get hold of their shiny new iPhones, will ignore the anti-competitive charges from O2.
“In this market economy, and with healthy waiting lists for the phone, its almost a self-fulfilling prophecy and there won’t be any complaints about the prices.
“Unfortunately, we won’t see the levels of consumer agitation that could deter this,” Jewell added.
Essentially, since the country’s still relatively speaking awash with cash (or easy credit), anyone who’s blinded by the iPhone bling will be splashing the cash on March 14th.
