Mexican iPhone carrier Telcel has begun selling (Translated Link) the iPhone 3G without a contract. The 8GB iPhone 3G sells for MEX $7899 (roughly $700) while 16GB models go for MEX $9199 (~$816). Both models are being offered with a bonus of MEX $500 worth of air time and 30 days of unlimited internet usage. As with the majority of other carriers offering contract-free iPhones, it is believed that the units sold by TelCel will remain locked to that carrier’s network. [via Mundo Mac | Thanks, Alfredo]
