    i got my iphone from strasbourg. but the big problem now is how to activate and unlock it.. Not even the guy in the orange shop is sure how the unlocking thing works.. Does anyone here know how exactly it works? I stay in germany. Do I need to go back to france to get it unlocked?

    I live in the states, but i read somewhere that you can only use an unlocked iPhone on networks in the country in which you bought it. Example, an unlocked UK iPhone would not work on any US network. Not sure if this helps you, for standard activation is done over iTunes.

    i managed to activate my phone. Do i need to have a itunes france account to unlock the iphone? because it is not accepting my credit card. It says its not a valid credit card for france... there is an option to change the country. Is it possible that i get it unlocked from german iTunes account??

    Shouldn't all these kinds of threads go in the hacks section?
