Where to find a cheap plan for the iPhone

We’ve been looking for the cheapest plan that can be used with the iPhone and we might have found it in France. It is not the kind of regular plan that you get when you buy an iPhone (you will have to pay a minimum of 49 euros a month if you get one of these).  What we discovered is that you can have the following for 19 euros (or even less in some cases):

- a plan without any minutes included for 7 euros (you would have to pay 0,45 cents for each minute). This plan comes with caller id, a free answering machine and double call. However it does not offer visual voice mail.
- an option that allows you to call 3 phone numbers for an hour per month, for 3 euros
- an unlimited internet access option for 9 euros (this option was actually 4.5 euros for four months for people who subscribed before the end of august). It includes unlimited Edge/3G data and 1 hour of Wifi connexion to one of the Orange hotspots.

If you’re only need to receive some calls and don’t intend on calling anybody, the bill can even be as low as 16 euros (or even 11.5 euros for the first four months). It is not the top of the line plan, but it costs almost a fourth of the regular low-end iPhone plan.
