Anyone who pre-registered for the iPhone 4 on O2 should be getting an email with the iPhone tariffs – which we knew already – but they’re now updated with the iPhone costs.
The cheapest tariff for the iPhone is £25 per month on a 24 month contract which gives 100 minutes, 500Mb of data, unlimited Wi-Fi (at least this IS unlimited unlike Orange’s unlimited). For this the iPhone 16Gb model will set you back £279. If you opt for the 18 month contract, the monthly cost rises to £30 per month but the iPhone reduces to £209. For a 32Gb model the costs are £323 for the 24-month £25 per month policy and £299 for the 18-month £30 per month policy.
To get a free iPhone 4 16Gb model you need to pay £60-65 a month depending on if you chose 24 or 18 months. If you want the 32Gb it will cost you £29. However you do get 1GB a month data plan rather than the standard 500Mb.
O2 are also offer 12 month and 30 day contracts for those of you lucky enough to have bagged a SIM-free phone. The cheapest is £15 a month on a 12 month contract with 500Mb download, and 300 minutes. A 30 day contract is £20 a month and also gets you 500Mb download, and 300 minutes.
Tethering tariffs aren’t revealed but we assume they’re probably the same as the data tariffs of £5 per 500Mb.
