    Hi, i am looking into maybe buying an iPhone 3g, after the new one comes out (I have heard rumours from various people, that it is getting a price cut, to like £150 for the 8gb (Not sure if it's true or not, but if it is, im getting one))

    I had a look on the o2 website, and it says that after the first 12 months, something about £10 a month, to still get web and wifi... I was wondering, does that mean that you have to topup by a tenner a month, or they take a tenner a month from you?!?!

    And is this just for their wifi spots (BT Openzone etc) or does it include the EDGE and 3G????

    Thanks

    So you have to pay £10 a month, (Not topup by a tenner a month)

    And is that 3g or the wifi spots they have?

    but tbh £10 aint too bad, well for it its fine, caus ei use internet nearly everyday on phone.

    ALSO, if you want tethering, it costs extra on pay and go

    I aint too fussed about tethering, and i aint sure how much i would use the internet.

    I guess i will find out over the 12 months, and i suppose a tenner aint that bad.

    For some reason, i was thinking to myself that it was more expensive than that.


    Thanks for the help

    Alright cool. But the only thing is, when i looked at the website when they originally came out on PAYG, i am 100% sure that it said that you had to topup by £10 a month... Nothing about them taking it (Not that im incredibly fussed, im just confused)
