Vodafone to start selling iPhone on 14 January

Prices up monthly packages

Security for virtualized datacentres

Vodafone will begin selling the iPhone on 14 January 2010

The 3G will cost you nothing, provided you sign up for a two-year, £35-a-month contract, or you can have it for £59 if you're only willing to pay £30 a month.

The 16GB iPhone 3GS is free on a £45-a-month package, rising to £59 (£40 a month), £89 (£35 a month) and £149 (£30 a month).

The 32GB version is free at £75 a month, £89 at £45 a month, £149 at £40 a month, £179 at £35 a month and £239 at £30 a month.

Orange will do you a 3G for free for just under £30 a month, and, like O2, offers the iPhones on 18-month terms too, though at a reduced subsidy of course. But then you have to pay Orange £44-odd quid a month to get the 16GB 3GS for free - O2 is the same.

Note that current Orange and O2 prices include VAT at 15 per cent, which will rise to 17.5 per cent on 1 January 2010. Vodafone's figures include VAT at 17.5 per cent.

All three companies offer huge quantities of bundled call minutes and texts so you're not likely to find yourself badly off on this score should you chose one network rather than another.

Both Orange and O2 offer the iPhone on pay-as-you-go packages, which Vodafone is not doing. ®
