Businesses are being offered the Apple iPhone for free when it launches as a 3G device this Friday (11 July).

The new iPhone, an upgrade from the GPRS device, supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, delivering push email, calendar and contacts to business users.

All new emails, calendar invites and contacts are sent directly to the iPhone 3G with no need to log on to an email account each time, providing firms allow their Exchange servers to support this service.

The iPhone 3G will be free on selected business tariffs. These tariffs allow businesses to have several iPhones and other devices on a single business account and all on the same bill.

The tariffs allow the sharing of inclusive minutes and texts across all users, and include unlimited calls to any O2 mobile, as well as unlimited calls to 10 UK landlines.

Users can also take advantage of unlimited data browsing, email downloads and unlimited access to 9,500 WiFi hotspots through The Cloud and BT Openzone networks, with a new iPhone "Bolt On" package.

The 8GB 3G iPhone is provided at no additional cost to primary users on tariffs above £41 a month (including VAT), when connecting to a new minimum term contract with iPhone Bolt On.

The price does not include foreign data roaming charges.
