Vodafone UK iPhone tariffs leaked

Read em' and weep, Yanks

Apple's iPhone 4 will be available for pre-order in the US, UK, France, Germany, and Japan on Tuesday, and today Vodafone UK let slip its pricing policies — and US iPhoners have reason to be jealous.

Although Vodafone UK's pricing was only up on its site briefly, an Engadget Mobile reader had the presence of mind to grab some screenshots and send that news website the rate listings — you can view them all here.

Unlike O2 UK's plans, Vodafone's internet data access-allotment for a 24-month contract remains at a hefty 1GB even at the lowest £25 ($37) 75-minute, 250-text entry-level plan. O2's 24-month contract doesn't provide 1GB of UK data until you step up to the £60 ($88) unlimited minute and text plan.

US iPhone users will be saddened — well, envious, at minimum — to know that a UK Vodafone subscriber will get his or her phone for free if they choose a 16GB model and subscribe for 24 months at the £45 ($66) level, which brings them 1,200 talk minutes and unlimited texts.

With AT&T — at least for the iPhone 3GS, since Big Phone's iPhone 4 rates hadn't yet appeared on their site by Monday afternoon — you pay $149 for an 16GB iPhone 3GS, a $36 one-time activiation fee, $59.99 for 900 minutes of talk time, $25 for the 2GB DataPro internet-access plan, and $20 more for unlimited texting.

Want tethering for your iPhone 4? That'll be another $20 per month.

Do the math. ®
