O2 UK reveals iPhone 4, 3GS prices

updated 12:00 pm EDT, Thu June 17, 2010

Shorter contracts yield cheaper phones

Long-time UK iPhone carrier O2 has announced its device costs for the iPhone 4 and 8GB iPhone 3GS, both due to launch in the region on June 24th. Unusually, phones are cheaper under the lowest tier when opting for an 18-month contract instead of a two-year one. A 16GB iPhone 4 is 209 with an 18-month term, for instance, while a two-year agreement raises the price to 279. This is offset by monthly fees, which are higher with a shorter contract. A 32GB model is 299 with an 18-month contract and 323 over two years.

A similar arrangement exists with the iPhone 3GS, which has 129 and 185 pricetags respectively. Past the lowest tier though, phone prices are fixed. The 3GS is 95 at the 300-minute tier, and free with any of the more expensive options. A 16GB iPhone 4 starts at 179 for 300 minutes, and shrinks in price until it is free at the unlimited level. There is no free option for the 32GB phone, which ranges between 279 and 29.
