    Approximately the same as the iPhone 4, that's the best guess. Apple typically keep the price points relatively static when they refresh their product lines.

    the question should be what are the contracts gonna look like. My guess is £300 upfron cost for a £45 a month contract with 100 texts and 50 mins, 1mb of internet.

    I got my iPhone 4 on the week of release on an identical contract to the HTC Desire, the flagship Android handset at the time. iPhone contracts are rarely much higher than their counterparts upon launch, they just stay higher for longer because demand stays relatively constant, whereas Android handsets are regularly obsoleted at the hands of other manufacturers and their own.

    It most likely won't be quite that high, probably gonna start at the same price point as the iPhone 4 (about £510).

    Exactly the same as the iPhone 4, all their prices stay the same.

    Paid £90 up front and £35 a month for 600 minutes, unlimited text and data when I gotmy 3Gs.

    Then when the 4 came out I got that for somewhere around £150, my 3Gs got stolen and they had to pay for an iPhone 4 because they'd discontinued the 16GB 3Gs

    Check the Apple website for the current prices of the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4. I'm guessing they will be the prices for the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 5, give or take about 5% in either direction. We've only got a couple of days to wait before we find out anyway, most likely.

    EDIT: I'd put good money on there being a 64GB model too, no idea on what they'd charge for it though.
