O2 Giving Free Data Access with 3G iPhone?

O2 customers in the UK who buy the new 3G iPhone will get their Wi-Fi and data access for free for the first six months, Telecoms.com reports. News of the free access, which was apparently not supposed to appear on the O2 Web site yet and has already been taken down, will be for folks who get the prepay iPhone. O2 is one of the few operators to offer the iPhone without a contract, allowing consumers to pay as they go.

After the initial six months, the price for unlimited Wi-Fi and data access will reportedly be 10 pounds per month.

A spokeswoman for the carrier told Telecoms.com that the info was not supposed to be posted and “all elements of the prepay proposition are still to be confirmed.”
