The rumor yesterday that O2 would offer the new iPhone 3G for free in the UK have proofed to be true. O2 offers with the £45 ($88) and £75 ($147) plans the iPhone3G for free.
We have checked in with AT&T to confirm that the $199 price Steve Jobs called out for the iPhone 3G is already the subsidized price AT&T will be offering the iPhone 3G. US customers are 'not as lucky' as UK's and need to pony up the $199 for the new iPhone 3G.
Of course you can also look at the bright side. Monthly fees are a bit lower for the iPhone 3G in the States.The Unlimited iPhone 3G data plans for AT&T customers will be available for $30 a month, in addition to voice plans starting at $39.99 a month (results in lowest plan of $69.99).
Funny thing is that with the £75 plan the 16GB iPhone 3G and the 8GB iPhone 3G are free. With the £45 it costs still £59.
The top £75 tariff includes 3,000 minutes, 500 SMS, and unlimited data on 3G and Wifi.
The £45 plan includes 1,200 minutes, 300 SMS and unlimited data on 3G and Wifi.
Existing iPhone customers can upgrade for free now when they are choosing or are on the £45 and £75 plans.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
