O2 is planning a series of promotions to boost sales of the next iPhone in the United Kingdom, according to Macworld UK. Citing unnamed sources, the report states that the device will cost £100 with an 18-month contract, or £269 contract-free for pay-as-you-go users. The new iPhone may be offered free to customers who sign up for the most expensive tariff, which is currently £75 per month, and may be offered as a free upgrade for existing iPhone customers who are willing to extend their contract by another 18 months.

Free upgrade for existing iPhone users, with contract extension?

Sure would be sweet if AT&T would do that in the States, but I won’t hold my breath.

If they sell the 3G iPhone in 16GB on Pay-As-You-Go for £329 or less, I will definitely buy one (along with the monthly Data Bolt-On).

If not, meh.

The PAYG option may well tempt me but only if they offer a sensible data rate.
