The purple icon? Why it leads to the iTunes Music Store.

£35 for 200 voice minutes and 200 SMS messages;

£45 for 600 voice minutes and 500 SMS messages;

£55 for 1200 voice minutes and 1200 SMS messages.

O2's EDGE network, but free WiFi for o2iPhone users at 7,500 Cloud hotspots.

I wonder if the UK price of the iPhone will be lowered in 60 days, like it was here in the U.S.
