TIM, Vodafone outline pre-paid iPhone 3G cost

Both Telecom Italia Mobile and Vodafone have revealed their pricing on the iPhone 3G for pre-paid customers. The non-subsidized iPhone will be available through both carriers for 499 euro for the 8GB model (around $777) and 569 euro for the 16GB model (around $886). Unsubsidized pricing for the iPhone 3G remains uncertain in a number of regions, including the U.S., where certain AT&T customers may have to pay the higher price due to contract limitations. In addition, images that briefly appeared on TIM’s site indicate that plans will start at 30 euros per month, although no official announcement regarding service pricing has yet been made by either carrier.

‘People who are ineligible for the subsidized price can certainly buy an iPhone for the “unsubsidized price,” Siegel said. What that is, however, has yet to be determined. AT&T will release that price sometime before the iPhone goes on sale.’

Certainly is new data to me.
