iPhone will be contract only

Pascal Cagni, the head of Apple Europe, has apparently stated that the iPhone will be available on with service contract in European countries, and not be available with pre-paid plans that are popular there.

Cagni also reiterated the iPhone will be available to European customers at "the end" of 2007. Speaking with seeteB.IT, Cagni said (translated from Italian to English) "On the carrier we do not have still news to supply to you but I can say that for Italy there will be problems with the iPhone, you that you are a lot it accustoms to you to pre-paid."

Apple has not announced any plans to offer the iPhone with pre-paid service anywhere, including the United States.
