    I'm in China now, and looking to get a couple iPhones from the local black market. Since there is no official iPhones here in China.

    2 options

    Hong Kong version iPhones no unlocking needed
    US versions Needs to be unlocked but few hundred dollars cheaper! !!!

    I found a solution at
    http://www.unlocksiphone.com/index.html

    Can I trust them and go ahead buy one

    Thanks in advance

    Don't pay for anything. The iPhone Dev Team will release a version of Pwnage that will unlock the iPhone 3G (and 2G) for free in due course.

    well, i personally haven't hjeard of any unlocks for 3g 2.0 phones, other then teh simhack those brazilians did. No software versions yet, so, I would be a little fishy about it to be honest. You'd think if they actually _did_ manage to do it, there would be a ton more news coverage...

    lol. local black market. that made me laugh (when i went to china, everywhere = black market, so i assumed thats normal)
    anyway, if u need it urgently then buy a hong kong one. (i didnt know hong kong doesnt have sim lock 0_o)

    but if u want to wait a few weeks, pwnagetool prbly will release a 2.0 unlock.

    also how much RMB is it in china to get an iphone? (curiosity 0_0)

    The ONLY way to unlock a 3G iPhone now is using a SIM card trick.

    If I was you I would buy then locked and then unlock them for free with the devteam pwnage update when it happens... it will SAVE you money!

    And I seriously doubt they are genuine as far as being unlocked goes!

    LOL... i know.. i grew up here so my say is that Chinese ppl are cheap in a nice way so the demand makes the "black market" so huge

    can we unlock 3G ones for free already??

    HK version is 8000+ for the 8GB and 9000RMB for the 16GB

    US version I can get them for 5500/6300 for 8/16 from a good source LOL


    Wanna do some business? how much to get an iPhone w/o contract in the US now... or get one with contract and break it

    sorry for my poor english

    eh.. hate to break it to u but thats a lil more expensive than US vsn.
    US is 600/700 USD (no contract) so its only around 4100/4775 RMB.
