'Free' phones available with two year commitment

Though the highly-publicized launch of the iPhone is expected formally begin on September 21 in the US, the device has also become available in other markets as well. In the United Kingdom, mobile customers have substantially different options than conventional US carriers offer, with varying monthly fees as well as phone prices, including some "free" iPhone 5 models (with a contract).

One of the more similar-to-US offerings is from T-Mobile UK, which offers the iPhone 5 for 109 ($176) for the 16GB model. The monthly with unlimited data and 2,000 minutes of talk runs 36 ($58.36).

Three UK prices the 16GB phone for 79 ($128) and 36 ($58) per month for the unlimited data One Plan.

Orange provides a free 16GB iPhone 5 for 46 ($75) per month for two years, which includes 3 GB of data, and unlimited texting. If a lower monthly cost is desired, the phone can be purchased outright for 320 ($519), and 20 ($32) per month monthly for 100 MB of data, 50 text messages and 50 minutes of voice.

Vodaphone also gives free 16GB iPhone 5 units for 47 ($76) a month with a two-year commitment, which includes 2GB of data and unlimited voice and text. The phone itself can be bought for 249 ($404) with a 25 ($41) monthly plan.

O2 is another carrier with a "free" iPhone 5 with a 46 ($75) a month plan, including 1GB of data and unlimited text. O2 gives the option of the phone for 100 ($162) with a 36 ($58) monthly plan.

Carphone Warehouse, and Phones4U are accepting preorders for the phone. Everything Everywhere can accept T-Mobile or Orange phones on its 4G network, once it is formally launched.
