We knew last night that O2 would belaunching the 3G iPhone on 11 July in the UK, but we didn’t have so much of aclue on pricing and whether the new tariffs would include unlimited browsing.Now we do and you can even get it for free and it’ll also be available onpay-as-you go "in the coming weeks."

8GB version

The 8GB model will cost just £99 on a new£30 per month tariff (now we’re getting serious) and the existing £35 per monthtariff. That means early iPhone adopters can upgrade for the £99 cost of a newhandset - not a bad deal, though many will be wishing they’d waited.

Those choosing either the £45 or £75 permonth tariffs will get the 8GB iPhone 3G for free.

16GB version

The 16GB iPhone 3G will cost £159 on the£30 and £35 tariffs, £59 on the £45 tariff and it will be free on the £75tariff. Business tariffs are also available.

All tariffs continue to include free Wi-Fibrowsing via The Cloud and unlimited data. "All customers will continue toreceive unlimited data browsing over O2’s HSDPA network" says O2 in its newsrelease.

"The iPhone is already a phenomenalsuccess in the UK and nowwe're making this revolutionary product more affordable for even more customers,"said Ronan Dunne, CEO of O2 in the UK. "iPhone quickly became ourfastest selling device ever and with this new pricing, iPhone 3G is anunbeatable proposition."

Again the iPhone 3G will be available fromCarphone Warehouse as well as O2 itself.
