Question: If I sign up today and they end the 3Gb offer on "1st September" will I get 1 or 2 months of 3Gb data?

Been that way all morning Jared ;).

I note that the Vodafone website has the white iPhone 4 advertised/pictured... misleading much?

Why are people complaining about contract breaking fee's? You are getting a large discount on a product with the promises you are going to stick with a term of service, then breaking it immediately and still expecting to keep the discount?

What other handsets have that kind of subsidy on them?

I have 6 weeks to run on my iphone contract, do you think I would have to pay the $150 resign fee? If I buy today.

We're not complaining, we're actually quite happy about them. Since VF isn't selling outright you can buy one on a plan and break immediately and the damage is only about $25

Essentially it's a $25 premium for a day 0 purchase you can take to another carrier.

Probably not... theres usually a 3-6 month window when fee don't apply... depending on your initial plan.
Ask VF

I'm sure they are confident they will sell all their stock today so will be happy to accept your $150 if you can't wait 6 weeks.  You need to weight up whether the 4 is worth $25/week to have for that time.  Bragging rights only stretch so far...

I'm going to do this:

Buy iPhone 4 on $40 plan

$619

Pay $40 for 6 months = $240

Break contract after 6 months = $315

Add them:

$1174

$74 more than buying outright, and you get 6 months of calls, txts and 3GB data till sept. Not bad huh?
Any thoughts on this?

No you are missing the point.. Vodafone isn't selling the iPhone 4 outright - for use on any plan/network and apple aren't selling yet. So the only option is to go on Vodafone's iPhone plan, then cancel for roughly the same amount of dosh..
