Found 22nd Nov 2007
my sons thinking of buying one of these and i posted a thread asking which was the best deal and i got a pm off someone asking if i wanted to buy an american iphone off him. However ive heard that the american ones dont work so obviously he doesnt want to pay out a few hundred to find it doesnt work properly so thought id ask if anyone has actually got an american iphone and if it works ok? thanks

Don't buy off someone who sent you pm, report it to a mod. There is a for sale section here. They should be using that.

hence the words likely.

I am guessing it will be a similar price for the French unlocked version as the German unlocked version.
