T-Mobile has announced that it will offer the iPhone 3G in Germany for as little as one euro with a qualifying monthly contract, following the lead of O2 in the United Kingdom, which announced that it will offer the phone for free in a similar subsidy promotion. Customers purchasing an 8GB iPhone 3G with a 69 euro, 24-month contract from T-Mobile will pay only 1 euro for the phone, with the 16GB model starting at 19.95 euros with an 89 euro monthly plan and going up to 249.95 euros with a minimal 29 euro per month contract. Similarly, O2 customers will receive the 8GB iPhone 3G for free with a £45 or £75 18-month agreement, or can choose to pay £99 with a £35 or £30 tariff. The 16GB model will be offered for free with a £75 monthly plan, for £59 with a £45 tariff, and will run £159 when purchased on a £30 or £35 plan.

Still, german T-Mobile´s monthly contract costs are the worst of all iPhone plans!
I wonder why they didn´t learn anything out from the very bad sales figures of iPhone 1 in germany (only 100.000 iphones sold in 5 month). I think they´ll fail again in germany - also because there is no competiton (like e.g. in austria. One is now also selling the iPhone and underbid T-mobile´s plans).

#### it, I don’t care if they give the iphone for free and give us some cash too, I don’t want it, what we want is cheap monthly plans with unlimited data traffics

I’ll buy an iPhone as I’ve been waiting for the 3G iPhone for ages but will unblock it and use it with my current plan that I typically pay less than 20 euros per month… I won’t pay the exorbitant T-Mobile rates!
