IPhone users to pay higher bills phone

Rumors of a cheaper iPhone on the horizon may come as good news for fans of the device - especially because iPhone users have to pay phone bills highest monthly, whatever carrier, according to AllThingsD.

Android, Windows and BlackBerry users spend less per month to use their smartphones, according to data by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, which was acquired by AllThingsD. It seems that the higher costs from carriers charge more for iPhone data plans and extra wireless.

"We think it has to do with their data plans and carriers, rather than on their usage patterns," CIRP co-founder Michael Levin told AllThingsD. "They are all on expensive data plans, unlike users Android, some of which are on prepaid plans or unsubsidized with regional carriers. "

The data is from October to December 2012 and shows that 59 percent of iPhone users surveyed spent more than $ 100 per month on their plan with 10 percent of these users spend $ 200 or more. Only 6 percent spent $ 50 or less. In contrast, 13 percent of Android users spent $ 50 or less and 53 percent spent more than $ 100. Windows and BlackBerry users spent less overall.Although the monthly cost difference between the four types of devices is low, the highest costs are still oriented iPhone users. This may be because iPhones are more expensive devices and carriers must bear the burden.

"Given the subsidies on iPhones, carriers work hard to make their money during the term of the contract," CIRP Josh Levitz says AllThingsD. "With the exception of perhaps the hottest Android phones, we believe that the subsidies on Android phones are weaker, so that carriers make more money, even with slightly lower revenue per subscriber. '

If Apple does release a cheaper iPhone, it will be interesting to see whether carriers will also reduce the monthly fee for the device.
