Three has become the latest Irish store to begin taking pre-sale orders of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, starting today at 2pm. Prices start at €179 on a contract basis.

Three’s decision to sell Apple’s latest smartphones comes after Eircom, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse confirmed soon after the phones’ launch that they would also be stocking them. The three retailers are currently taking pre-orders.

As of today, the iPhone 6 has begun selling to eager customers in Apple’s key markets of North America, as well as the UK, France, Germany, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong, with the confirmed Irish stores looking to follow a week later on 26 September.

Now, Three has confirmed it is joining the list of Irish operators offering the phones, and has also confirmed the full pricing list across all versions of the phone.

For the base phone, the least expensive option of €179 is available if signed up to a €55 per month two-year contract on the iPhone 6 with 16GB internal storage.

On the other end of the scale, the iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB internal storage is available for €479 at €55 per month on a two-year contract.

At the time of writing, Siliconrepublic.com is waiting to hear the official release date on the Three network, but given its competitors in the market, it could be the end of next week.

Updated: A spokesperson for Three has confirmed both phones will be available for pre-order customers on Friday, 26 September, while pre-registered customers have been able to order since 10.30am this morning.
