September 16 release for prepay iPhone


O2 has announced the 3G iPhone will be available on prepay from September 16.

The 8GB model will be priced at £349.99 and the 16GB at £399.99. The price includes unlimited web browsing and Wi-Fi for the first 12 months. The prepay 3G iPhone will be available from O2 stores, The Carphone Warehouse and Apple stores.

At the end of the 12 months customers can continue to receive unlimited browsing and Wi-Fi for £10 per month.

Prepay customers will be able to use their 3G iPhone on all of O2’s prepay tariffs, but new SIMs will be set up to the Favourite Place tariff as a default.

Existing O2 prepay customers who want to purchase the device may be eligible to receive 10 per cent of the value of their top ups over the past 18 months (up to £200) credited to use on their new iPhone.
