What!!??
Firstly, Carphone Warehouse did a terrible job of marketing the iPhone, it was all O2
Secondly, free iPhone? Theyre desperate for a shedload of sales
Thirdly, iPhone on PAYG? That means no 'The Cloud' wireless internet, and possibly no visual voicemail, unless theyve made a 'Visual Voicemail Lite'

A free iPhone with an expensive contract, or a 100 iPhone with a less expensive contract, what's the difference? CPW will still make roughly the same.

I suspect those getting a PAYG iPhone are expecting a more cheap-n-cheerful experience anyway. I guess it's aimed more at kids / low volume users, and I bet it will be damn popular.

Do you own an iPhone?

I agree, the PAYG option will be marketing at a much younger audience and I also agree it will be incredibly popular.

Its like the Kickstart that will be also available on PAYG. For us (Indirect) this will be massive with our dealer base.
