European nations get iPhone 3G details France's Orange, Belgium's Mobistar and Sweden's TeliaSonera have all now published details for their individual releases of the iPhone 3G
Orange has a couple different ways of obtaining the phone, will be selling the 8GB model for 149 with 2-year service and high-end options such as Origami, First and Jet. The 16GB model will cost 199 under that arrangement. For owners of the first generation iPhone, you can upgrade for discounted prices of 99 and 149, with a new two year contract of course. If you do not want the higher end options, then the phone will cost 199 for the 8GB, and 249 for the 16GB with the lowest data plan.

In Sweden, TeliaSonera there will be three different options for iPhone plans, dubbed iMini, iMidi and iMaxi options. iMini hardly seems viable as you will only recieve 100 minutes of talk time, 100 SMS messages and 100MB of data per month. iMidi makes each 250 each, while iMaxi moves it to 1000/1GB.

Mobistar only announced that they will have full details available July 4th but that they will have multiple options as well.

You shouldn't have to pay for it if you are connecting with a plan.
