I got a brand new iphone 3g for 250 euros in Spain, and have a o2 UK SIM for when i visit my relatives, and a Spanish SIM for when im living out here. I'd get 02 not orange, they got a £15 a month pay and go SIM with unlimited internet and texts They also have better coverage.
Obviously you would have to jailbreak it so you could put a UK SIM in and regions aren't locked

yeh cheapest place would be the internet some where, lol dosent orange give those things out for free, maybe that was some other Europe carrier. They cost the same every where you go. im pretty sure any iphone in europe is unlocked just because the EU says soHey! A Restore Never Hurts It's True!
