We have compared the latest prices we have for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in South Africa. We don't have a comprehensive list yet but we have taken similar packages so you can compare which is best value for money for you.
Our Value for Money Index (VMI) is a formula created to show which contract offers the best value for money. The lower the number the greater the value. The index is created dividing the price by the total offering. For example: For the Vodacom iPhone 5c on a Smart M contract the calculation would be: 499(Price) / (120(Minutes) + 300(SMS) + 300(Data)), 499/720 = 0,69
*Telkom Mobile have not released prices yet but as soon as the do we will add them to this table.
