Dude, Apple are going to tell you all this because they want money from you and O2.

Get the phone, go to www.ziPhone.org, download the app, run it and unlock the phone. Takes no more than 5 minutes.

You don't need to activate anything in iTunes.

One of my friends is looking to do this... they have verizon I told them about ziPhone.org now would they need to add a new sim card or will the one that is installed in the iPhone will work just fine? I remember a while back seeing youtube videos on using a end of a paper clip to pop out the sim card... thanks

jesus


get that iPhone and I will unlock it for you over AIM.
I don't have AIM but thanks for the offer...i think i wud be ok i just wanted to clarify whether its possible to do so with the iPhone straight out of the box from Apple as they say it needs to be activated before you can even use the ipod features etc..Also the difference between unlocking and jail breaking? and finally once it is unlocked then what happens when updated software for the iPhone comes out?

Thanks in advance ppl

:cool:
