Hi,

I was just curious about the iPhone when its unlocked, does everything work fine? and does using the browser eat credit or is it free?

I'm mainly looking into a unlocked one because uk bound, you can only get an iPhone on contract and I hate contract phones.

Any help given is appreciated.

Cheers

EDIT-- OOPS seems this is the wrong forum . . .sorry. Can someone move it for me?

Unlocked iPhone

I unlocked my iPhone using ziPhone and all apps work great. i'm using it now for two months and is now firmware 1.1.4. Added other third party apps including Snapture, a camera enhancing software as well as Simport, which transfers my contacts from previous phone to the iPhone. No problems. Browser is free using Wi-Fi, but browsing with EDGE has to be paid for through cell provider network.

iPhone Unlock

Two questions: 1) Unlocked phone will browse internet regularly using Wi-Fi, no additional cost to your phone service. If you want to browse in a non-Wi-Fi area then you need to have your network provider adjust the settings to browse, or if you know the settings, then you do them yourself. This will cost you.
2) Unlimited texting can be done using Wi-Fi freely. If your plan incorporates free unlimited texting, even in non wi-fi areas, then AT&T is eating that cost to allow you to text through them, possibly through edge. (Not sure what protocol they use to facilitate this.)
If you are with AT&T though why would you need to unlock the phone?
