iPhone 3G in Hong Kong: 3 Unleashes Plans and Prices

Proving their kung-fu is far better than Canada's or Scandinavia's, Hutchison Telecom's 3 brand just kicked out some positively Confucian price points:

With a 2 year contract, the low end plan will run you just HK$188 (a WOW-inducing US$24!!) for 500/500/500 (minutes, heart-to-heart minutes, and data megs), along with 25 MMS and 15 SMS (+ unlimited intra-SMS), and HK$2938 for the 8GB handset and $3738 for the 16GB.

Top end is HK$498 a month (US$42) will net you 2200/1500/Unlimited data, with 150 MMS, 50 SMS (+ unlimited intra-SMS), a FREE 8GB handset, or HK$138 for a 16GB.

By way of bitter comparison, Norway is paying US$221 for 1000 min. and 1GB, Sweden is paying US$145 for 1000/1GB and Canada is getting hosed for US$100 for 600/1GB. (AT&T is $+30 for unlimited data).

Thanks to Janric for the tip!

  • I am a Malaysian, just started residing in Hong Kong. Lucky for me I have a wife who subcribed to 3 Hutchison HK, and she is their priority customer thus I was able to get it by just altering the monthly plan by additional HKD 200 a month, but it still works up to approx HKD 5138 but with extra air time.
    The streets are selling for HKD 8,000 to HKD 10,000, you can practically get it from any shop that you see, try bargaining
    Also just like Han mentioned:
    an 8GB is about 4680 (body) + 188 (1st month) + mis. which work up to HKD 10,000 for a two year contract from 3 Hutchison HK
