PAYG iPhone with normal contract

Anonymous
Not applicable
Apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but I have a standard O2 contract (i.e. not iPhone) with unlimited data. If I were to buy a PAYG iPhone 3GS and put my contract SIM card in there would it just work or would I have to do anything special?

The reason I ask is that, after calling O2 Customer Service to buy myself out of my existing contract, buy the iPhone and have to change to a new iPhone tariff would be a *lot* more money that just paying the £440 for a PAYG iPhone and keeping everything else as is!

Any help would be much appreciated.

Swish! Thank you slight_smile

One last question if you dont mind.

Would I have to activate it with the PAYG sim in or would I put my contract sim in straight away?

Thanks alot slight_smile
