O2 is rewarding customers who sign up to a 24 month contract with their cheapest monthly iPhone tariff to date. The new 24 month tariffs will enable customers to purchase an 8GB iPhone 3G for free at £34.26 per month or £44.05 per month for a free 16GB version. Customers will be able to enjoy all the same benefits as other iPhone tariffs including unlimited UK data and unlimited access to over 9,500 public Wi-Fi hotspots (courtesy of The Cloud and BT Openzone). Both tariffs will be available from 3 April.
O2's 24 month iPhone tariffs may entice customers to sign up to the operator for longer as until now customers had to sign up to an 18 month contract at £44.05 per month to get a free 8GB iPhone 3G and £73.41 to get a free 16GB variant. For those unwilling to sign up to the two year contract, the 18 month contracts will remain on offer.
The iPhone 3G will be available through O2, Apple and The Carphone Warehouse.
