The two services will charge the same £3 per megabyte price, but the i-mode service will be free till the end of the year, for contract customers, and for a month for pre-pay users. E-mail will be free until April, and then be charged at the same rate as text messages.
O2 will start offering i-mode in Ireland next week and in Germany during the first half of next year.
