O2 has announced that the iPhone will be available on pay-as-you-go (PAYG) from 16th September in O2, Carphone Warehouse and Apple stores.
8GB iPhones will be available on PAYG for Â£349.99, while 16GB models will cost Â£399.99.
As a comparison, the 8GB iPhone is available free to monthly contract users who sign up for an Â£45 per month deal for 18 months, including free web browsing, 1,200 minutes and 500 texts per month. Total price: Â£360.
Makes the PAYG version seem a little pricey.
Pricey, yes, but unlimited web browsing and Wi-Fi hotspot access is included for 12 months. Internet access after the first year will set PAYG iPhone users back Â£10 per month.
Visual voicemail and call merging will not be available to PAYG iPhone users.
