    Maybe what they mean by activation is activation of the SIM card not the phone. Maybe the phone doesn't have activation screen anymore, just like iPod Touch because you can't get your hands on it if you haven't already signed anyway. So no problems when you restore or upgrade to newer firmware.

    Default ITs on pay as you go in UK !

    according to our UK o2 site the 3g is gonna be available on pay as you go ! NO contract.

    iPhone is coming soon for Pay & Go

    Customers will soon be able to enjoy all the great features of iPhone without a monthly contract with the iPhone for Pay & Go.

    Just register your interest opposite and we'll drop you a line in early July to tell you what you need to do to be one of the first to get your hands on the new 3G iPhone.

    More information on the new iPhone will be available shortly so come back in a few days or visit www.apple.com

    Wow, it looks like with the right contract you guys get the phone totally free!!! But there is also a pay as you go option.

    There WILL be alternatives around the contract in the U.S. whether they are legitimate ones or not. I can't imagine them forcing people to have to sign a contract before they will allow someone to buy the phone, that isnt legal here.

    Yeah, sure...you pay like 30 dollars (or more) a months for a demn 2year plan without which you they will not sell you anything, and you still want to use it with a prepaid plan or another carrier, paying the traffic twice......or you pay much more than the 199 for a device officially unlocked, but you still want to unlock it...unlock what??? It has already been

    Hmmm... I still have 1 year left on my T-Mobile UK contract. I dont know how much the cancellation fee would be, but if I sign up to an O2 contract and they give me the iPhone for free, that might just work out alright financially...

    EDIT: Just checked with T-Mobile, it's 285 to buy myself out of the contract. And it's 99 for the 8GB iPhone on the 35 monthly O2 contract. Ouch.

    my own thoughts

    once the dev team work out to unlock this baby

    people will buy the pay and go and unlock them


    Just spoke to Apple store in UK and they said they are selling without activating in store, because they dont have the 02 systems

    If Apple sells without activation in store in UK, and if unlock is available, why would anyone pay more for pay as you go? surely you can buy it for 100, and then unlock it?

    On O2's website, it says you can buy it in O2 store, or carphonewarehouse. No mention of Apple stores.
