    All the chat seems to focus on upgrades this morning, but what of making use of the old phone when my new 3G version arrives (I'll believe that when I sign for it) on Friday morning?

    Surely there will be a PAYG sim card available on Friday?

    If it's been activated already then should you not just be able to shove in any O2 sim card and it'll work?

    At least this is progress:

    "Don't need 2 iPhones!

    We want to make sure you find a good home for your old iPhone once you upgrade. If you've a friend, colleague or family member they can use it as a phone by choosing any of the three options below.

    If they're on an existing O2 18-month minimum term contract, they can just transfer onto a Pay Monthly tariff for iPhone*. The end date of their contract will stay the same. Once their tariff has been transferred, they just need to connect to iTunes to activate the iPhone.

    If they're an O2 business customers, they'll need to move onto a current business tariff with an iPhone Bolt On and will be able to keep their existing contract term*. Once their tariff has been transferred, they just need to connect to iTunes to activate the iPhone. To arrange this they'll need to contact Business Customer Services.

    Existing O2 Pay & Go customers can use their current O2 Pay & Go SIM card or new customers can join O2 by getting a free Pay & Go iPhone SIM card from an O2 store. Then add the unlimited Web and Wi-Fi iPhone Bolt On (£10 a month). The only thing that does not work with this option is the Visual Voicemail."
