    Hey guys i am new at this forum , the reason i write is cause i am really amazed by the iPhone ... and i decided to buy it. I live in Slovakia so it would be better for me to have a 3G capable phone cause EDGE is not supported here. So i would like to ask if the old iPhone will be capable of supporting 3G only with a software update , or the software update would do nothing cause there also need to be some kind of receiver also mounted?

    Thank You

    3G requires new hardware, expected to be released within days/weeks

    The 1st generation (current) iPhone you have will never be 3G as the hardware is totally different.

    If you ever wondered if someone could sum up 6 months worth of discussion in a paragraph, I think this is it. :)

    Not everybody is as informed as you are. That's why forums exist, and that's why people ask questions
