Hey, I'm a soldier in the middle-east, do you think it would be cool to buy an iPhone 3G from Australia, I mean, I heard they are "unlocked", right? Or am I missing something? I heard they are sold unlocked there. Or, what if I buy (via eBay) an iPhone from an country that has laws about locked phones? Sorry if this is an obvious question, I am a newbie to the iPhone world, been overseas for 2 years. And yes, we have 3G where I am at, and many of us have personal cell-phones, we have to buy sim cards off base, then buy minutes from local vendors.
