    There has been some talk of what the best value method of getting the iPhone on O2 is, seeing as they now restrict you to one monthly rate for 9 months (to recoup the cost of the phone they're subsidising of course).

    I've created a couple of little tables to help people decide - it obviously depends on your usage needs of course.
    I want the 16Gb version, but I only really need the £35 per month/600 minutes option. I'm actually better off going in with the £45 per month and changing down to £35 after 9 months.... ok, not by much, but every little helps, to coin a phrase!

    Hope this helps! :D

    I'm going to do the same a you, but if I find I'm using more minutes (doubtful) then I'll stay on the £45 tariff.

    Nice wurk fella. :D

    However do we know for sure that you can change after 9 months with the new 3G iphone plans?

    In my eyes your suggestion actually makes a bigger difference than the few pence saved, It spreads the cost of the phone out more than paying the £159 up front.

    I would also like the 16GB phone on a £35 contract so will be doing the same, as long as we can verify changing contract after 9 months!

    Thanks for posting that tiguk. I'm going to be starting on the £45pm with a 16GB phone. I'll keep an eye on the minutes I use but I expect I'll probably stay on it.

    Thanks for that. Looks useful.
    Personally I'm going for the £30 a month deal with a £7.50 unlimited text bolt on, as I won't even use the 75 mins a month talk time (I get 600mins atm, but only use 30-40), but I text an awful lot.
