    before this gets moved to the hacked forum these questions applies to a phone that has NOT been jailbroken or unlocked

    philgilder - thanks for the answers

    Are the answers any difference for just a legit edge iphone:
    -upgrade if unlocked?
    -use visual voicemail
    -IMPORTANT - use the o2 free cloud wifi spots

    sorry for the confusion ifriends ;-)

    Hi. There is some intresting info regarding this as I am looking into getting a 1st Gen iphone. found this on the o2 web site but there does not appear to be any answers to the FAQ. I have email o2 customer care to see what they say
    Below is from the o2 web site

    Most Frequent Queries
    I am an existing O2 Pay & Go customer and have got an iPhone from another source. What are my options?

    If I want to give my iPhone to someone else to use, how can I wipe my contacts from it?

    I have been using WiFi, but have just been asked to register my mobile number – why?

    How do I subscribe to the Unlimited Web and Wifi Bolt-On?

    How do I unsubscribe from the Unlimited Web and Wifi Bolt-On?


    Also if you go here

    http://www.o2.co.uk/iphone/existingiphonecustomers

    and click on the "Your old iPhone" tab you get this info

    Don't need 2 iPhones!

    We want to make sure you find a good home for your old iPhone once you upgrade. If you've a friend, colleague or family member they can use it as a phone by choosing any of the three options below.



    If they're on an existing O2 18-month minimum term contract, they can just transfer onto a Pay Monthly tariff for iPhone*. The end date of their contract will stay the same. Once their tariff has been transferred, they just need to connect to iTunes to activate the iPhone.

    If they're an O2 business customers, they'll need to move onto a current business tariff with an iPhone Bolt On and will be able to keep their existing contract term*. Once their tariff has been transferred, they just need to connect to iTunes to activate the iPhone. To arrange this they'll need to contact Business Customer Services.

    Existing O2 Pay & Go customers can use their current O2 Pay & Go SIM card or new customers can join O2 by getting a free Pay & Go iPhone SIM card from an O2 store. Then add the unlimited Web and Wi-Fi iPhone Bolt On (£10 a month). The only thing that does not work with this option is the Visual Voicemail.
