Like I've mentioned, it's not just the data that makes it more expensive - it's the fact the phones you get with it are £3-400, as you can choose whether or not to have data if you're taking a lower cost phone like the X8.
The reason they all include data is not because no-one wants to take the tariff without data, but because the people who have worked out they don't want data are in a huge minority compared to people who don't understand how smartphones work and will add £30+ to their bill every month because they don't think they need it.

If, for example, the x10 mini pro was available on standard tariffs I would pay for the phone (within reason). The way the maths work out it would be cheaper for me to buy the phone outright and go pay&go than do a £25 a month for 24months etc.
I just think that having a screen with multiple phones saying 'Free on all tariffs' where for some it means all tariffs and others it means all smartphone tariffs is misleading.

....but as clicking on any phone brings up all the tariffs you can choose from, and clicking on any tariff brings up all the phones you can choose with it, it's not really that confusing - it's not as if you could end up accidentally buying something on the wrong tariff.
