Has anyone else heard about this?

My dad just rang up Vodafone (his current provider) to cancel his contract so he can move to O2 (to get the 3G S). They asked him why and he told them one of the reasons was the iPhone.

The agent then said that she isn't meant to say this but the iPhone would definitely be coming to Vodafone before the end of the year (and possibly other networks such as T-Mobile)

Someone else rang up and first got told 'No' but then was told that there are rumours about it.

I have no idea whether this is true or not (especially as the same sort of thing was reported to be happening for the 3G but never did) or whether it could be the same for the US and other countries.

Seems a bit strange as I am sure that O2 has an exclusivity deal until 2011.
