might as well wait till the end of the year/start of the new year. iPhones should be readily available for most networks by then.

iPhone with no internet or the voicemail feature? No thanks.

there is a thread on slickdeals.net also about how to get it unlocked...pretty thorough description...
and you can always go to howardforums.com to read up on the compatibility issues those have experienced so far.

If you're in San Diego, I can help you unlock your iPhone. I'm using mine on T-Mobile and I'm completely happy with it.

That is correct, unless you go through some steps which will allow you to update to 1.1.1 with no issue. These steps would be to uninstall all 3rd party apps and do a restore back to virgin state 1.0.2. This will allow you to update with no issue, but currently, Activation bypass programs don't work with 1.1.1....yet. IMO, if you've got a modded iPhone, whether it's unlocked or hacked to hell, hold off on the update until after the iPhoneDevTeam figures out what will and will not work with the new firmware. Honestly, none of the new features bundled into this update are worth losing the 3rd part apps currently available for the iPhone....for now, at least.

Oh yeah. You are not required to update. If the update option comes up and you are unsure if your modded iPhone is safe, just click cancel. No big deal.

iPhone on sprint is a no-go because sprint is on the CDMA network, while the iPhone is GSM (pretty much if your service provider doesnt use a Sim Card you cant use an iPhone)

apple didnt hooke the kid up, it was some businessman who gave him a 350z and like 4 iPhones in return for an unlocked one

You guys are all grossly misinformed.

1. You dont need to update your firmware. You just turn auto updates off.

2. I'm still on an unlocked iphone as I post.

well as an update. I think the unlocked iPhones are way more attractive to the normal cellphone type of guy. I have like over 100 games 20 wallpapers aim and so much more. Thanks for all the input. Word has it that if sales decrease they will be sent out over seas. My itouch is useless
