    this whole locking thing bothers me. mostly because I want the phone unlocked, not to jump ship so much as to have the option of getting a local sim card when traveling, or even moving. i want to know if i travel overseas can i get a sim card from say o2 in london and have it work in my american bought phone? I think this should be possible if it isn't

    Being you're in the US - please do stop and find out first. Going in the other direction, I'm almost positive it could work. They tend to be a lot more open and integrated with their networks. You know what ATT is like over here though. Claws are in DEEP.

    I too believe the answer is no.
