Apple Store in Hong Kong is selling unlocked Iphones 3G - the link states "Buy directly from Apple and choose your carrier": http://store.apple.com/hk The iPhone "Buy" page states: iPhone 3G purchased at the Apple Online Store can be activated with any wireless carrier. Simply insert the SIM from your current phone into iPhone 3G and connect to iTunes 8 to complete activation. Now the questions: 1. Can it be activated with any carrier or with Hong Kong carrier only? 2. Once activated can it be used in any other country using SIM from such country or is it locked to the carrier who's SIM was used during activation? Did anyone tried it yet? It is being sold in HK Apple Store since July, thus I hope someone has some experience to report on.
