With all the furor over iPhone 3G prices and subscription costs, we’re happy to find an invaluable resource for price-spotters, an international iPhone pricing guide.

We’d just set out to assemble one ourselves, which, given the nature of an international roll-out is harder than it looks, as so much of the small print in these deals is in languages foreign to us, turns out we didn’t need to, as the venerable TUAW had the list already. So, we didn’t know about it, and figure it could come in useful, and figured many others would find it of use.

One thing that is missing are details on WiFi access, which we understand varies from country to countru, with some potential customers complaining at the cost their carrier wants to charge.

We’d like to get on top of the WiFi and data plan charges, and need your help, partially to overcome any language barrier, so, please state the country and carrier you are talking about and kindly put information on WiFi and data offers in your country in the comments box below.

Meanwhile, here’s the international guide from TUAW.
