Can't honestly see them giving them away for new contract - not without changing existing terms.
What makes you say that though? Unless they're incredibly greedy! As I keep saying, they will still be making a huge profit what with existing contracts being extended and new contracts taken out.
I think it's a mere reward for being an O2 and iPhone customer.

mainly because I dont think they will have to - at least not initially! People will be queuing up for the new 3g model. Whilst they will still make money by giving them away - they will want to cash in if they can
Yes I suppose. But it's a way of guaranteeing existing customer will remain customers that little bit longer if they extend their contracts.
Maybe I'm just refusing to believe it because I don't want to be let down. If I'm honest, I suppose I can't see them giving it away but I still think there's a good argument for it.

I'm seriously tempted to sell my iphone (once my contract is finished) and then leave O2 forever, cos i'd be pretty disappointed. But if they did give us early adopters a free upgrade it'd be a massive PR stunt, i'd go around saying to everyone "got it free, and I've had nothing but good customer service from the O2 staff". It'd be a shame to let the iphone team down like this, as everyone who i've ever spoken to in iPhone technical support (except 1 iphone specialist in my local branch) have been great. I think this is because they deal with iphone day in and day out (although correct me if i'm wrong).
I think giving us early adopters (say those who bought one in november and december maybe) a free upgrade is the least they could do to ensure we stay with the network and that there wouldn't suddenly be a rash of old iphones on ebay unlocked and on other networks (which is what will happen if people can't easily upgrade).
