    This is what i found on the 02 website.

    Be interesting to what they bring out for them. Surely they will have to pay more for the phone etc.

    Sorry if it has already been posted. But i couldnt see it.

    Found more.

    This is interesting as well
    Thought they werent going to let you buy over the internet? Only in store activation?

    That wouldn't really be neccessary on a Pay As You Go phone, as O2 won't be subsidising it and are thus in no danger of losing any money.

    Looks great to me, I also am a o2 Pay & Go customer now, so I get a discount! Thing is, I used ot top up all the time but I havent recently, but I guess I will get a discount still as it says top-ups over 18 months.

    YAY, I can finally get rid of my Razr, i dont use a mobile enough to warrant a contract phone, so this is ideal.

    Hope they don't take the p on the price though. £199 is my limit.

    Im afraid the price will prob be £250 because you are not in a contract so can leave anytime so they will want more money from you!

    I will be sorely tempted. Didn't Steve Jobs say a maximum $199 global price for the 8GB model? Surely you aren't going to be able to buy a £100 pay as you go iPhone in rip off Britain, that would be outrageous. He would sell his projected 10 million in the UK alone!

    Yes but the PAYG phone most likely won't have all the free web browsing features. Making more people opt for the contract.

    I think SJ was talking about the "subsidised" price…
    Of course there will be regional variations with VAT, GST or import duties etc…

    I dont see apple selling it for less than what the normal iPhone prices will be!

    Why would they? Else everyone would go Pay & Go and apple would get no money.

    Pay & Go with the £7.50 a month data bolt on is a way better deal then a £35 a month contract.

    Only with a contract. I'd put money on the pay as you go model costing the same as the original 2G handset price - £269 for the 8Gig.

    I'm just hoping for the 8GB PAYG to be no more than £250. Am i being silly?

    I was going to post something very similar, but just had the thought that since Apple is reportedly no longer receiving a monthly cut of the contract, that cost may be passed on to the networks in the form of a higher initial price. So it's not unfeasible that the price could go up from this. £269 would be the lower threshold for the price imo.
