    I figure these phones will come with 2.2.1 which has the new baseband as posted earlier. I know you can't unlock once the new baseband is on it. Is the dev team ever gonna try to crack the new one or figure a way to downgrade to the old one for yellow snow? Cause if that's the case these no contract phones are useless. I started to get excited and almost had my friend pick one up now that she's in the states but I'm not gonna risk it if the phones are 2.2.1 baseband....

    It's pretty well known that Apple has "good" employees, and that no one likes going to their carrier.

    My phone came with firmware 2.2.1 and baseband 2.30.03, i inserted my AT&T sim(no iphone plan), and it worked flawlessly. I bought the phone at the apple store, with no contract for ~$647. Seems as if it was factory unlocked.

    Wrong. There have been no reports of Apple or AT&T selling unlocked iPhone 3G's in the USA, not even with the unsubsidized iPhones 3g's being sold now.

    Any AT&T 3G SIM's will work with a locked iPhone 3G. Try inserting a T-Mobile SIM and then report back the results. While you can still jailbreak 2.2.1 & BB 2.30, you can not use it with any other carrier but AT&T.

    Hm, i was told that even though i had an AT&T sim, i would have to unlock because i didn't have an iphone plan. Ill look into it.

    I'm defenetly not buying the new one. 3g will do just fine. Next year I'll buy the new one. And $700 for an iPhone?? Defenetly not worth the money. Never. Buy a lap top instead. Here in Canada that would be $830 LOL. R u out of your mind? I bought my 16gig iPhone for $200 at launch date. LOL well worth the $200.LOL

    Here in the UK some shops are still selling with FW 2.01

    When FW3.0 comes out the Dev team will unlock that and any phone with BB2.30 can be upgraded to that. In the mean time it is either AT&T or a piggyback SIM.

    Apple must love you!

    I really don't see anything that's been suggested for the new iPhone that I want and I'm not sure that Apple could pull anything out of the hat to persuade me.

    Gone are the days when I used to earn enough to buy something just because it's new and shiny....
