Pretty steep. There’s no way to get the iPhone 4.0 for free. The cheapest option is £29 for a 24 month contract paying £75 a month.
Data is stated as unlimited though but there is is a 750mb “fair use” policy.
Vodafone pricing was first out the gate in the UK, although these prices turned out to be a leak of unfinalised prices. The reality is a little more expensive than the leak suggested. These are the prices that were released by Vodafone on Friday 18 June.
16GB iPhone 4 on a 2 year contract. For 18 months, add £5 per month to each tariff.
32GB iPhone 4 on a 2 year contract. For 18 months, add £5 per month to each tariff.
Vodafone will also offer a pay-as-you-go deal, but pricing is yet to be announced.

Tesco’s other 12-month contract costing £35 a month includes 750 minutes of talk time with the same data and text allowance as the cheaper plan. The handset will cost you £229 for the 16GB model and £299 for the 32GB model.
