    you'd need a US billing address/credit card and social security number.

    umm...nobody in america would, in their right mind, give some german stranger their billing address and social security number....and anybody that will is guaranteed not to have good enough credit to pass the credit check...

    LOL. Good luck. It's locked to AT&T unless activated and an unlock code is requested... which there's no telling if AT&T will be releasing them.

    Even if they do release the unlock codes, we don't know if there is an accessible SIM tray, much less if they will release the code for an unactivated phone... and if you want to activate, you'll need to pass a credit check and/or pay a deposit. Most providers charge an $800-1000 deposit for people without a real SSN, if they even let you sign a contract. Depends on the company.

    the credit check is done by your SSN, which you don't have, so you couldn't do a credit check. unless you have a relative in the US willing to get you one and sign up for the contract, you can't get one until they show up on eBay and someone figures out how to unlock them.

    Common sense says it will be accessible - how else are you going to get a sim card in it? This is 2007, not 1993.
