Orange has confirmed rumours that it will be selling iPhones from November 10th.
The launch date, which first surfaced in a report from the Times just over a week ago, has been substantiated in an official statement from Orange.
Monthly contracts for the latest 3G S version of the handset are broadly in line with rival carrier O2, with the cheapest deal that includes a free handset priced at £45 per month over 24 months.
The 3G edition of the phone, meanwhile, is free from £30 per month, also over 24 months.
Tom Alexander, Chief Executive Officer of Orange UK, said: “Since we announced the iPhone on Orange we have already seen more than a quarter of a million customers register their interest on our website.
“We will be matching their enthusiasm with a 3G mobile broadband network that covers more people in the UK than any other operator, a commitment to deliver the best 3G experience on the iPhone and best-in-class applications and plans.”
Those who choose pay as you go can get the iPhone 3G for £330 when they also buy a top up voucher for £50.
