As noted by Recombu, UK wireless carrier Three is now showing the white iPhone 4 as available for purchase on its website, listing an "earliest delivery" date of this Wednesday, April 20th.

Officially, Three representatives have only stated that the deal is not yet live and that they do not yet have any other information on the white iPhone 4.

Multiple mainstream news sources have indicated that the white iPhone 4 is finally in production and is expected to be released by the end of the month. Italian site iPhoneItalia has claimed that the device will launch on April 26th.

interesting...

It says it comes with a bumper, but Apple only gave away bumpers to Black iPhone users for a limited time and then they had to pay $29 for one...I wonder if this is an old image?

Also, "All-you-can-eat data"????? Does the UK have a more laid back style in their product listings?

a) What a terribly confusing company name, "Three"? I had to re-read this article like three times!

b) Man, Apple has thrown us all for a loop on this one. iPhone 5 is confusing. I really don't know what to do... wait or not to wait.

Three are doing full on unlimited data from what I've seen (as are Talk mobile). I may have to take them up on the offer when it's upgrade time! :)

Nah, 3 is pretty good for data and value. iPhones on 3 actually come with free tethering (not sure if the all-you-can-eat data applies to tethering) which is pretty nice too.

"three" or "3" as they are sometimes known are a 3G only company (they only own 3G masts and roam on 2g services thats why they are called Three :)

I would understand if this was a 64 GB iPhone.
Just a color change doesn't seems much.
I know the "unlimited data" is also nice but it always has restrictions...

Yes, here in the UK, our networks offer so much more variance than any American networks can.

Since all our networks run on the GSM network, they are all competing with each other fairly (unlike the AT&T and T-Mobile scenario).

I have a deal where I pay £10 a month and I get 250mins to any network (mobile or landline), unlimited sms text messages, and unlimited data. Yes, completely unlimited data. Not even a fair usage policy.

You Americans get severely screwed on your data plans. A few friends of mine were over in the USA a couple of weeks ago, and decided to try and get a local sim card. T-Mobile charged $70 just for a sim card! $70?! And AT&T wouldnt offer a sim card unless you bought a phone, and even then, you'd be in the usual 2 year contract with them getting a crap deal.

Again, here in the UK, sim cards are free. No catch, just free.

/end rant.

Three (3) gave me a free bumper at Christmas even though i bought the handset outright from the apple store and cut my sim to make a microsim.

they're the 5 placed network, were first to market with 3G (thus '3') and the other networks (and businesses in other sectors) are all getting more informal and pally.

The image is old because there's no Game Center on the screen. I think 3 hasn't gotten official word from Apple yet.

The golden years from the UK mobile contracts ended in 2006 when 18 month contracts became the norm.

Not really considering giff gaff isnt a contract deal, but a sim only deal from month to month.
