    Hi guys,

    i was initially set on getting the £35/month tariff which would have costed me...
    £99 +£35*18 = £729 (8GB) OR £159 +£35*18 = £789 (16GB)

    but it actually works out cheaper to get the £45/month tariff and then switch to the £35 after 9months..
    £0 + £35*9 +£45*9 = £720 (8GB) OR £59 +£35*9 + £45*9 = 779

    so you may say it's only £9/£10 cheaper, but remember you are getting double the minutes for the first 9 month...

    Im going for the 16GB on £45/month and then switching to £35/month after 9 months...

    I don't think this will happen, but you guys don't think o2 will say pay £100 if you want to change your tariff due to the subsidy do you?

    I'm doing exactly the same as you, unless I find I'm using all my minutes/texts up. I don't think they will make you pay anything for changing, as I'm sure I read on a thread on here that it is fine (and free) for you to change after 9 months. If they do, then I'll stick to the £45/month tariff.

    I thought you could change the current Iphone to any other iPhone plan once a month? Do no need to wait 9 months.

    That might change for the iPhone 3G - now it is subsidised.

    That's exactly the case - and that 9 month lock in period is how they provide the 8GB for free or the 16GB for £59. But current iPhone users can still change once a month.

    This is good to know. I was originally going to go for the £35/month too, but then thought i'd rather pay nothing for the phone and pay a little more over time. But if I can switch after 9 months, its a bit of a win-win. Thanks for bringing this up.

    This is exactly my plan. Judging by my usual phone usage though I can see myself sticking with £45 permanently. Have to see how it goes :)
