Hi guys

I am interested in buying the iphone. i am thinking of getting it from the states cos it should be cheaper. Does anyone know if I buy it from the good old u.s of a would there be any problems with it?

it should work here right?

AND does anyone know about unlocking the phone.. on ebay people are advertising they can unlock the phone already! Can this be done already.. I am on 3 network til february.. would i be able to get it unlocked to that..i know the answers going to be NO but i thought i'd ask out of hope!!!

Think the US iphone has been unlockable for a while. Just the UK that they are trying to unlock to all networks.

Thats good news!! Will the phone work here if I buy it from america?

I believe they work fine but I'm not sure if you'll save any money or not.

I've got a friend away to San Fransisco with $400 of mine today...going to get me an iPhone...I believe three is the only network you can't use them on

PS, If I don't like it it's yours for £250:giggle:

Let me know how much you get it for and where your mate buys it from. I think that you may pick one up for about $350 if your mate shops around.

My gf is in missouri at moment. She will be looking in Walmart etc The apple shop is selling for $400.

Get it from France - it's illegal over there for Apple to lock it to one network......

are they out there yet? And I think they would cost more from France...

I just told him to go in to the Apple store, I thought they and AT$T stores were the only places you could get them...

Edit: Doing some research, the German 'unlocked' iPhones are to be £713...

dont quote me for it but i think that apple are locking it to orange in france but after you activate it you can request for it to be unlocked free of charge. a bit of a stupid question but im guessing that the french verison will still have english on it?..
