Vodafone has unveiled pricing details for the new iPhone 3G S and will offer the handset to prepaid customers for the first time.

The existing 8GB iPhone 3G will cost $759 up-front on a prepaid plan, while you'll pay $929 up-front for the 16GB iPhone 3G S and $1129 for the flagship 32GB model.

For post-paid customers, Vodafone will offer the 16GB iPhone 3G S free on its $69 iPhone Cap over 24 months. The plan includes $400 worth of calls, text and MMS, unlimited free Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls during the evening and on weekends, and 1GB of data.

The flagship 32GB iPhone 3G S will be free on a $114 cap over 24 months, which includes unlimited calls, text, MMS and voicemail and 2GB of data.

Unlike Optus, Vodafone will not be charging its iPhone customers a monthly access fee to use Internet tethering, but the telco has provided the option to purchase additional data for tethering — 1GB will cost $24.95 and 2GB will cost $29.95 (both offers will be available from August).

Vodafone only offers the iPhone on 24-month contracts (Optus has a 12-month option on most plans), but it is currently the only Australian telco to offer Visual Voicemail. Post-paid customers who purchase the iPhone 3G S online before 30 June 2009 will also receive a bonus $100 credit, while prepaid customers purchasing the iPhone before 31 August will receive a bonus $500 flexible credit.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
