iPhones are locked to the local carrier, but its reasonably easy to 'jailbreak' them. get on over to Google and search for iPhone Jailbreak and I'm sure you'll find what you need.
i would imagine it will be locked to at&t so you would maybe have to jailbreak it
my uncle bought one from hong kong...he jailbroke it and unlocked it and he was able to use it on vodafone over here...however you will need a travel adapter to charge it with...hope this helps
will jail break definetly do the trick then?

i dont know what jail break is can somebody be kind and explain in basic please
the porter
Jailbreaking is a process that allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to run unofficial code on their devices bypassing Apple's official distribution mechanism, the App Store. Once jailbroken, iPhone users are able to download many applications previously unavailable through the App Store via unofficial installers such as Cydia and Icy. These applications can make changes outside of the application which official app store applications cannot.

Jailbreaking is distinct from unlocking, which is the process by which a mobile device is made compatible with telephone networks it was not specifically licensed to be used with.


thankyou for the advice

is this easy process to jailbreak myself or will it need to be done by some profesional?
