i don't really know about using iPhone on standard pat monthly plans, i'm guessing you won't be able to use the unlimited WiFi that is included with iPhone plans, so there would basically be no point in doing that.

If you do not enter into and remain in an airtime agreement with O2 on one of our tariffs for iPhone, you will not be able to use the phone functionality of your iPhone.
Besides, where are planning to get you iPhone from? If you buy it on Pay & Go with O2, it comes with a free unlimited Wi-Fi Bolt-On for 12 months that you can only use if you remain on Pay & Go.
Anyway, I think that what the Carphone Warehouse meant is that you cannot just insert your old SIM into the iPhone and use it, but if you obtain your iPhone from O2 or Apple, it is gonna come with a new SIM card and you can easily transfer your old number onto it (if your contract is finished).

and you won't be able to use all the functionality of your iPhone with a non O2 SIM

My sim is an 02 sim but not an iphone sim
It's perfectly OK to use a standard contract SIM in the iPhone, but you'll miss out on visual voicemail, call merging and possibly tethering.
However, I've never heard of someone with an iPhone tariff using that with a different handset, so I don't know what effect that would have on the services to your wifes phone (your current phone )
AFAIK you can only have an iPhone tariff with an iPhone, not with any other handset.
