Carphone Warehouse now taking iPhone 3G orders

Buy now, get it tomorrow

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Carphone Warehouse has begun taking orders from the genral public for the 8GB and 16GB 3G iPhone, a day ahead of the second-generation Apple handset's formal release.

CW's website today began taking orders for both models - albeit only black ones, not white - on O2's £30, £35, £45 and £75 per month airtime packages. Contracts are required to run for at least 18 months.

The first two tariffs will get you an iPhone for £99 or £159, depending on whether you want the 8GB or 16GB version, respectively. On the remaining packages, the 8GB model is free. The 16GB iPhone costs £59 on a £45-a-month tariff or nothing at all on the £75-a-month deal.

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, there's no reference to pay-as-you-go handsets - not least becuase CW itself said they may not debut until Christmas.

O2 began taking advance orders earlier this week, a process which, despite targeting only folk who'd registered their interest in the product, still caused the carrier's servers to wobble.

CW's site is likewise only taking advance orders - purchased iPhones will be sent out for receipt tomorrow - but unlike the carrier, it's opening the process to all.
