Many people would like to buy the UK iphone to use with their existing network. Unfortunately it is currently not possible to unlock it with software. It is not impossible though. There are ways to make the Iphone work with any 02 simcard. More interestingly there is also a way to make the UK iphone work with any sim card (apart from 3 network sims). This method does however require some extra hardware and a degree of technical knowledge. On ebay people are charging as much as £200 to unlock iphones using this method. They are also selling the hardware element (turboSIM) that you require to use your current sim in the iphone, for more than 3 times its wholesale price. The iphone costs enough as it is, without some ruthless individuals making huge profits out if peoples technical ignorance. If you want advice on the current options for getting hold of an unlocked Iphone, or unlocking one you have already bought, then my skype name is mike07905 I will be online most nights from 7ish. Don't donate your money to an ebay cowboy..
