    Hi, I want to buy a unlocked iPhone 3GS so I can use overseas. Can I also use official apps that I have bought from the App Store? There are several that I use for music. I guess I won't be able to purchase new apps from an unlocked phone? Should I maybe get an iPod touch for my apps, and get some cheap cell phone overseas?

    Also, if I do buy an unlocked 3GS, what should I look for? Definitely want iOS 4.x ...

    yes you can use them on an unlocked phone

    do you really think anyone would unlock their iphone if it meant they couldnt use app store apps?

    The only way it will restrict apps is those that require a iOS version beyond what you have.

    But that's a limitation even people without a jailbroken phone have.
