    Actually, you dont need to unlock it at all. Just jailbreak it and activate it. No need to unlock it.

    He wants to call with it,so if he uses AT&T,that does NOT mean,that it is an iPhone contract.

    thanks guys, i used i leberty, i had my ipod ouch stolen at school. i went to class pissed, it was a new 32g ipod touch, well i filed a school police report and went to class and broke my phone out of anger,(stupid, i know) anyways i was thinking about getting the iphone anyways, its just annoing to carry and ipod and a phone, so now it made sense, i need an ipod touch and a phone......iphone! so i was able to buy one that was used with 1hr. and 57min. of talk time in its life. the guy had bought it and then his company was giving them to all of its employers. so he also needed to pay rent and only needed $100, so i got a brand new iphone, no scratches, and the charger wasnt even unwrapped out of the clear wrap. for $100. it was an 8g though, so i had to cut my choice of music a little small seing how i have like 35,000 songs.

    easy. If you cannot get out of yout at$t contract right away, jailbreak/unlock the iphone, and buy a tmobile prepaid sim card off ebay. Then you can use that until at$t contract is up. I bought an xtra prepaid sim for $14.99 for my blackberry for work with 150 minutes, and all ya gotta do is add minutes every 2 months or so. The minutes roll over as well. The sim cards work awesome.
