1. Its just a GSM device-why cant it be unlocked?

2. Can one use any voip on it via wifi like Gizmo Project, Skype etc?

3. If one buys an iPhone but does not activate it on ATT can i still use the other features and Wifi based telephony? Can the iPhone be used without the ATT?

1. That's how the theory goes.

2. Not at the present moment.

3. No. You must activate the phone to use any of the features.

its technically impossible to not unlock a GSM device.\
I think you actually have a triple negative going there. "impossible to not unlock" I would have to say it IS possible to not unlock it. It is also possible to not lock it. It could be impossible to unlock. It could also be possible to unlock. But, "impossible to not unlock?" That just seems questionable just in the structure of the argument.

That said, I REALLY hope someone can unlock this so I can use it in China.
