    Im biting the bullet and pre ordered mine this morning. O2 simplicity contracts are so much better than the long 18 month ones so buying it unlocked is logical for me. Furthermore, I also travel overseas during the summer so it is nice to be allowed to change sim cards when I travel etc...

    So i live in seattle as well.. I realy would love to know if this will work on tmobile and the "modem firware" will be no big deal?? What happens when you update to 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 ect. Im all over going up north for a pair of phones for my wife and I but I want to know for sure that these issues wont be issues!

    Hi Guys

    Well I live in the UK and purchased my 3GS unlocked which I think came from Italy last year.

    Going to wait and see what the new phone physically looks like and whether the new features are worth it for me and if so will get an unlocked one from Apple. I do a fair bit of international travel and being able to pop in a local sim is a serious cash saver.

    It takes micro sim though. Does TMO even have these?

    exactly what i was gonna ask. I've already looked at several tutorials on how to cut my current tmobile sim but i'd prefer to use an actual microsim anyday

    Officially unlocked means no matter what firmware or baseband you have it will work with any GSM carrier. You won't have to wait for the new unlocks to come out and don't have to worry about accidentally updating to the latest firmware and losing your unlock.

    Of course there is going to be a limit, up to a max of 10 iphones in a lifetime for each person from Apple Store.

    Now, it gets me interested in upgrading to iphone 4 which I think I am eligible to upgrade after doing only 1 year out of the 3 yrs contract.

    The pre orders at Apple UK have "ran out"? WTF!!!
    Shipping date for new pre orders is by July 2nd. Great I'm going to have to wait again like last year, I knew I shouldn't have waited another day!!
    It's all down to O2 now to let people pre order.

    That is how Apple will lock you out, Iphone 4 uses micro sim , even if you have the official unlock , you still can't use it on T-mobile as T-mobile uses regular sim.

    I can't believe you guys would pay upwards of 800 bucks for a cell phone lol. That is insane! We all know the phone is not worth more then a few hundred bucks to begin with. Make Apple more richer would ya?

    You DO realize that the subsidy that is paid to Apple when you sign a contract makes up the difference right? In other words your words have no merit as Apple is making the same amount of money either way... And by the way, it is cirtually the same for every smart phone on the market.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    Oh yay! Too bad Apple doesn't let that option go fly in the US.

    It's paid but it's not paid by me lol. My words have perfect merit! If AT&T wants to pay over-bloated prices by my guest...I'm paying for my plan and that's it.
