    Q1) unless you are going to put music onto it, even 4GB is enough for just software.

    Q2) Since the iphone is not setup as a PAYG phone, I would think its safe to assume that this would cut into your minutes or just not work at all since the iphone needs to have the 'iphone data plan' to work properly.

    Q3) As with any phone, signal depends on your location and the location of cellphone towers, so if you're getting cell service, the internet will work just fine.

    Q4) 06/09/09. my guess and is a tuesday :D

    And you don't need a friend to unlock it for you. Just use Ziphone which unlocks it 2 clicks of your mouse button, it couldn't be any easier!

    I3eXa: I presume you're American, with your silly date formatting. The 9th of June is in fact a monday, my birthday in on sunday the 8th, so tuesday the 10th sounds great to me:D

    Q3) Sound good. Great.

    correct if your talking about 2008, but i was talking 2009 :D ^^^see??? and yes, I am still stuck with imperial measurements and weird date formatting...sorry.

    Honestly, I have the 4GB and if ur talking videos, I'd go for the 16GB since it will fill up fast. The iphone will only work with an 'iphone' designed sim card which you can either activate online via itunes or hack it with InDependence, iliberty, or ziphone. Feel free to try that old sim if you are going to get an iphone anyways, but i'm 99% sure it won't work.

    Q1) 8 is nice but jump for the more space, u can hold all your music library and as many movies as u want, tvshows, the more space the merrier. your alredy spending 400, migth as well spend a little more fordouble the space

    Q2) i dont think pay as u go is internet friendly but im unfamiliar with it, maybe thee is an internet pay as you go, i bet there is.

    Q3) in the states its nice, but you should wait for the 3g version around june time, it is more compatable with o2's network

    Q4) considering the cost of the iphone and they sell it at quite the gain and loss, they make deals with carriers and they dont seem to be abandoning that system.

    bottom line its a fine phone, works in elevators
    wait for the 3g version, you will be way happier
    good luck
