Thread: Is it possible to insert a 3g SIM card into iphone 1.0 (and make calls)?

    Default Is it possible to insert a 3g SIM card into iphone 1.0 (and make calls)?
    I have the very first gen iPhone and I'm going to buy a 3G plan for my laptop, so I'm just curious, if I buy a 3G SIM card will I be able to insert it into my old iPhone and make calls?

    Thanks!

    I'm not 100% sure I understood everything (confused when you included laptop), but I can answer this way:

    2g, 3g, 3gs use the same sim card. iPhone 4 is smaller. (laptop? no idea what you're talking about)

    As far as I understand it, you can buy a mobile broadband plan with some company and use your own USB modem with it, i.e they just give you a 3G SIM card which you insert in the modem. That's for the laptop.

    You can also have some mobile plan on that card, so what I'm trying to understand is if I can use the SIM card in my old iPhone to make calls.
