Do you think it is possible for the phone to have 3G with a software update? Right now i have a sidekick3 and really want to get an iPhone but would love a 3G phone at the same time.

As discussed before, it's pretty unlikely that the FCC would have signed off on there being an unactivated 3G system in the phone without it being publicly documented -- meaning if it were there, we would know about it. The situation is not an analog to the 802.11g/n situation, because unlike that situation, different spectrum and licenses are used. The government has to, as far as I know, specifically clear the device with respect to each long-range wireless technology it uses.
