O2 introduces 24 month iPhone tariff

O2 today announces that from April 3rd it will introduce a new 24 month tariff option for iPhone customers looking for added value in return for added commitment. Customers who sign up to the 24 month tariff can get the 8GB iPhone 3G for free at £34.26 per month and the 16GB iPhone 3G for free at £44.05 per month.

Customers who take out a 24 month contract will continue to receive all the benefits of an iPhone tariff, including visual voicemail, unlimited UK data and unlimited access to over 9,500 public Wi-Fi hotspots (provided by The Cloud and BT Openzone)*.
