Almost two months after the UK launch of the Apple iPhone 4G, Vodafone is now offering the phone on PAYG. Vodafone is selling the device whose price starts from £480 for the 16GB model and £570 for the 32GB model.

Users will be benefitted by this as they will be able to save £20 and £30 for the 16GB and 32GB models respectively when compared to that of the SIM free versions of the iPhone 4. The PAYG models are bundled with wireless data access for 12 months, capped at 250MB a month on 3G and 1GB for BT Openzone Wi-Fi.

The iPhone 4 16GB which comes with 600 call minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB Wi-Fi along with 1GB internet carries a TCO of £959 over a period of two years.

Alternatively, to get the PAYG iPhone 4 having an equivalent SIM only plan, you will have to shell out £960. As such it is a good thing to opt the pay monthly version of the iPhone so as to avoid the hefty initial cost.

However, we just need to keep our fingers crossed and watch if pay monthly customers of Vodafone will be prioritised over its PAYG ones.

Lot many factors are to be taken into consideration while buying an iPhone 4. It all depends on whether you opt to pay less for the handset and more on monthly contract or shell out more on the iPhone and less monthly.

With three major network carriers viz. Vodafone, Orange and O2 unveiling their tariff plans, now 3 is geared up to throw its hat into the ring. The smallest of UK’s mobile carriers, 3 UK is the last one to announce its tariffs for the iPhone 4 as it wants to compete the best with its rivals in terms of package and cost.

3 UK is said to be in direct talks with Apple in order to offer the best and cheapest tariffs to its UK customers. It is following a similar trick which it played to introduce the iPad package earlier with a monthly package of 10GB for just £15.

It was even reported earlier that iPhone smartphones were being offered surreptitiously to some 3 UK customers so that they don’t switch to other networks. However, 3 is currently inviting parties so as to register their interest on 3 UK website. The interesting thing is that the most expensive current 3 UK tariff of £30 a month happens to be less than the cheapest iPhone 4 contract on the market.
