I did and it came up with a message your iPhone is unlocked, I can put any SIM I want in it, it has never been jailbroken and after updates it stays unlocked.
I guess that's because Apple unlocked it.
There are quite a few countries where iPhones can be officially unlocked, so never say never.

Tell us about the impact of this:-
Maybe you should go work somewhere else, Nokia?
Hang on they've been laying people off...
Palm? Might be good in the short term, do you think they'll last until the end of the year?
HTC, they have promise Android looks interesting.

I don't rate this ! I'm not dissing it but compared to the competition it is such a disappointent (I work for Apple)and next years model should have come out this year (that is all I am allowed to say about 2010). This model is not worth upgrading to, if you're not already an iphone user. Unlocking is not recommended anyway since a/ it voids the guarantee b/ the latest will NOT install and run correctly. Don't say I didn't warn you!
I think the iPhone 3G S will be a sweet deal. The phone is not perfect, but show me a phone that is. I think most people get hung up on what the iPhone 3G S is missing, rather than to focus on what it in fact has to offer. The ease of use is one of the major selling points as far as I'm concerned. Maybe it's time to give Apple some of my money... :)
cristian, 10 Jun 2009it's a very expensive toy... iphone 3G 16GB is 250U$S max in USA, and.... sell about 1000U$S ... morefor all people saying thats the iphone price in usa is around 200$ and expensive in other countries its not true u can get it for very low price only when u sign for a contract for 2 years u pay first time fee around 200$ for the phone and around 100$ for the plan u choose and monthly like 75$ 100$ depends on ur plan and its sim locked cannot use with other operaters if u want buy it factory unlocked will cost u around 700$ .
Apple iPhone 3G S is KING!! Soooo looking forward to holding it in my hand. It's gonna be sweet, y'all!:D
The "3G" in iPhone 3G does not stand for "3rd Generation".
It simply means that the phone can be used on a high speed network connection, referred to as HSDPA or 3G. The first iPhone model can only be used on a GSM network (2G).
ITs not out yet and some surprises will happen,,vga video straight off it pretty good its flattened s/e in one swoop..It is expensive but still a quality device..
eric87, 11 Jun 2009just like the old one. just have 3mp camera and auto focus.. and no flash??? are you serios?? ... moreI was answering a question about conference calls.
A good thing about using the same case is that all the accessories for the iPhone 3G should fit the iPhone 3Gs.
just like the old one. just have 3mp camera and auto focus.. and no flash??? are you serios?? omnia rocks!!
franklyn, 10 Jun 2009can it host group conferrence callsYes, just like the old one, you keep adding people to your call until you reach the limit imposed by your network.

The N97 has an ARM 11 and half the RAM it will not be able to do demanding tasks like video editing as well as the iPhone.
The VGA video resolution matches Nokia's best, if you want more you need a Samsung or LG.
this is the best cameraphone ever, other manufacturers couldnt even come close to the quality of this camera, autofocus, and revolutionary tap to focus
Apple revolutionizes handphone imaging, others just copy and follow
Hi, Every one
I would request all iphone lovers in UK, not to rush into getting new model. Dont't let greedy supplier get big bonuses on your cost. Remember, it cost less transportation from Factory in China to UK, then USA.
Then why supplier prices are 3 times higher than USA prices. Also please complain Apple US to take note of UK rip off prices.

Also, it should have a second camera as it is called 3G, but is one of the things that are missing, just for marketing reasons...
