AT&T recently announced it would be only stocking the phone in-store, much to the disappointment of the lazy iPhone lovers over in the US.
But O2 has confirmed to TechRadar "[The iPhone 3G] will be available to buy through our online store."
Bye Mobly, I’ve got an iPhone now
The Carphone Warehouse also confirmed the device would be available through dual sources: "It will be available online as well as in-store, from the 11 July."
When pushed on whether users will be able to activate the handsets themselves, the spokesperson for the CW said: "We’ve not been told any different to the same activation principle before."
O2 were more forthcoming with the info: "*A customer must take out a contract either online or in-store and then activate it in the normal way through iTunes."
O2 has also stated the PAYG model will be available at the same time, though "details still TBC".
