hate to ruin your big day, but have you considered waiting another month to find out what will happen with V. 2? all indications show a better phone at a considerably reduced price. if you're like me, you'll throw caution to the wind and just go get your phone. if you've got a bit of patience, i'd say wait it out.

otherwise, yes...you'll need the most recent version of iTunes to get started. there's a Sticky created by John that shows the steps to unlocking. i'd look at that also.

that sticky is for Jailbreaking.

That's the spirit... get it and enjoy it now. It's the American thing to do.

I think rumors of a substantially cheaper V2 iPhone are greatly exaggerated. And feature-wise, it's looking like 3G and maaaaybe GPS but that's about it. So if you don't really need those things, I say go for it today!

Well you won't be buying online today, that's for sure....



I'd, uh...wait buddy. ;)

You buy one today and they announce the new one this week (with much better features) and
your gonna be pissed!

Of course you could probably just take it back and get the new one to. :laugh2:

Good Luck and Enjoy!

are they on your SIM card?

if so, just do this

Installer,
Install tab,
All Packages,
Community Sources,
Install,
then, choose the iClarified section,
choose SIMport

and use that app to transfer all the contacts.

Hey, twista...more power to ya! No one really knows how improved V2 will be or the news would be out there by now. And the allure of an iPhone is pretty serious. If I found one of those things in my mailbox, I'd probably be at an AT&T store about an hour after that. :p
