The iphone legitemately comes to the uk in November.
We have a governing body over here called Ofcom who lay down the laws for our phone companies.
their website states :
`Whether you are a post-paid (contract) or pre-paid user, you can keep your current mobile phone by requesting that the SIM lock on your mobile to be removed. Usually, mobile service providers require a minimum contract or service period to expire before they unlock your phone.`
This has been the case since day one, after your contract expires the carrier has to unlock your phone.
I wonder how they will go about this? has apple added an unlock feature to the UK version??

The CEO of ATT said they would unlock your iPhone after your 2 years was up too.

The iphone box clearly states that ATT service will be required to use the phone aspect after the end of the initial contract. I assume this means that they do not plan to unlock since unlocking would mean that you could use it with other providers.
