Like the look of the Apple iPhone 3G but put off by the thought of being tied down to a contract? Well O2's online store is stating that a prepay version will be available from 16 September in both 8GB and 16GB formats. The iPhone 3G 8GB will be available for £349.99, while the 16GB version will cost £399.99.
Having purchased either version of the iPhone 3G, customers will be entitled to unlimited browsing and Wi-Fi for the first 12 months, though this is of course is subject to excessive usage policy. After the 12 months has been completed, unlimited browsing and Wi-Fi will continue to be available for just £10 per month. The prepay iPhone 3G will be able to do all that the contract version can do, apart from visual voicemail and call merging.
The Apple iPhone 3G will be available to buy from O2 stores, Carphone Warehouse and Apple stores from 16 September.
