3 has revealed itsdeals, and as we hoped, they're pretty tasty. Apple's new phone will be available on 24-month contract, SIM-only or pay as you go tariffs. 3 is offering 1GB of Internet use with every contract, which is the best data deal we've seen so far.
3 has some decent SIM-only and pay as you go deals. Once you've got your iPhone handset direct from Apple, a 3will cost you £15 per month for 300 free minutes, 3,000 texts and 2,000 calls to other 3 mobiles. All iPhone deals, including contract and SIM-only, come with 1GB Internet use -- that's matched only by .
The cheapest contract deal costs £30 per month, netting you 500 minutes and 5,000 minutes to call other 3 phones. All the contracts come with 5,000 texts.
Like most of the other networks, 3 is offering one option to get the phone for free. Commit to 24 months on the top £45 contract and you'll get a free 16GB handset with 2,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and 5,000 minutes to 3 phones. A 32GB model on the top contract will cost you £90 up front.
The contracts all last 24 months, although 3 told us 18-month contracts will be on the cards shortly. If you're an existing 3 customer, the network has set aside an iPhone 4 and micro SIM with your name on it, but hasn't yet announced options to buy your way out of your current contract.
3 has handily put together its own comparison of the network deals, although it has sneakily left out Tesco Mobile. For the full picture, and our top picks, check out our , which we'll update with 3's prices shortly.
