Tesco Mobile has become the latest organisation to reveal its pricing and tariffs for Apple's iPhone 4.

A 16GB pay-as-you-go iPhone from Tesco will cost £479, as opposed to £499 for an Apple handset, which comes SIM-free.

A 16GB iPhone 4 from Tesco on contract costs £20 per month for 12 months, while the handset costs £349. People can get the16GB iPhone4 handset from Tesco for £19, if they sign up to a 24 month contract at £45 a month.

By contrast, a 16GB iPhone 4 handset from O2 is supplied without cost, as long as the user signs up to at least £60 per month for 24 months.

A number of UK carriers have announced pricing and tariffs ahead of the iPhone 4 becoming available on Thursday. O2 posted its pricing last week, while Orange announced its pricing two days later.

  • You might want to read that title again.

  • Sorry to correct this but The iPhone 4 16GB is not free on a simplicity tariff. O2's pricing structure clearly states on its website that the costs are only for 18 & 24 month contracts. Simplicity Tariffs are only 30 day or 12 month contracts, for most of these contracts you'd already need the phone so budget the full price of an iPhone along with that.

    I've done the maths and on O2 the cheapes option over the course

  • Peter is right - no free iphone on o2 simplicity. Not sure that you get a free bag of revels either!
