when the store people do their thing, you V1 phone is pretty much unchanged (they don't even use/see/touch it) and your cell service is turned off (I believe you could make 911 calls). The rest of the functions work like they did before (WiFi, email over WiFi, ipod, etc.)

so, yes you can unlock it and put a T-Mobile sim in it

Yup, it will work.

But the second that you purchase the iPhone 3G, your v1 will say 'No Service.'
