UPDATE: Carphone Warehouse has said the iPhone PAYG will not be in their stores until Christmas.

O2 has confirmed what we already suspected – the PAYG version of the iPhone 3G will not be available until later this year.

In a slight tweak on their official website, O2 has said the phone will be available, sans contract, “later this year.” That means we won’t be getting an official price confirmation for some time either.

If you want an iPhone 3G contract though, and you already own an EDGE model, you can preorder right now. All you need to do is call up O2, or head to the Carphone Warehouse, and they’ll send you your newly–minted blower on Friday, 11 July, the day it comes out. Remember though, you’ll only be able to order one.

Make sure you keep your beady gadget–loving eyes locked to Stuff.tv this week for some very special iPhone 3G coverage. And remember to get your knowledge up to speed with our iPhone 3G Bible.
