I was hoping to Jailbreak my iPhone in order to use it on a local carrier in Israel for an upcoming trip. Wondering if anyone here knows who that carrier would be and if there are pay as you go or monthly data/service plans i could get for the 10 days I'll be there. Any help is appreciated!

I heard Israel has Cellcom, Orange or Pelephone as carriers. I would look up their respective websites to see what they charge for pay-as-you-go SIM cards.

Are you eligible for a U.S. carrier iPhone unlock? You might want to check that out with your stateside carrier before you jailbreak because unlocking is quite a chore after jailbreaking since it must have a specific baseband in order for the unlock to work.

I am not eligible as I am on an iPhone 4S with AT&T. Also seems I cannot unlock it myself as I planned to. Looks like im going to be a bit cutoff while over there.
