    I currently have a UK based (I live in the UK) 3G on a monthly contract with O2 which includes 500 free minutes, 600 free texts and unlimited data.

    If I buy an iPhone 4.0, I assume I will simply be able to transfer the SIM (once I have a replacement Mini SIM from O2) in the new phone and still keep my existing (unlimited data) contract. Yes?

    Or have I missed something.

    Yes you will keep the contract but I think O2 are putting a limit of either 1GB or 500MB limit on their tarrifs now.

    Will this apply to existing contracts as well, or just new ones taken out on the new terms and conditions?

    If you choose to stay on the existing contract for 3GS, and then buy a new iPhone 4.0. Transfer your sim to the new iPhone, and you should keep the current unimited contract. But if you dont have much time on the contract and you are looking to buy an iPhone 4, then it's better to migrate your current contract to a monthly roll on contract. It just gives you 1 GB Data, but the phone works out to be much cheaper.

    Which presumably will also let me take advantage of the tethering facilities available on both the iPhone 4.0 and the iPad - as I understand the SIM should be interchangeable between an iPad and iPhone 4.0.

    I am already beyond my contract but still paying monthly so I am just trying to work out if staying with it is worth the £200 difference in price of contract phone and not. I may also be able to use the same SIM in the iPad too, I believe.

    Not 100% on that, but i'd lean towards no.
