Do you know if I can buy an Iphone and unlock it even not having an AT&T account, meaning not even having it active with AT&T in the first place?

    Default Can I unlock an "inactive" Iphone?
    Do you know if I can buy an Iphone and unlock it even not having an AT&T account, meaning not even having it active with AT&T in the first place?

    I am planning on buying one in the US, unlock it manually (software) and insert my SIM card to use it here with my GSM carrier...

    Thanks

    I was wondering the same thing, but I dont want to use it as a phone, just for the ipod, email and camera. What would it be called to just use it as an ipod? Jailbreaked or unlocked?

    for that purpose you should be able to use the other hardware released by Apple, the Ipod Touch. It should be the same as the Iphone - the phone functionalities

    You need a phonebook sim (iPhone 4 Micro Activation Sim Card also for 3gs, 3g, 2g on eBay (end time 10-Sep-10 00:57:16 BST))

    Or, alternatively, I just went to the Vodafone shop and bought a pay-as-you-go SIM (my phone was locked to them) to activate then jailbroke.
