    Taking an American bought iPhone and using it with the O2 network in the UK? I want to buy an iPhone while I am living in the US and I will use it with AT&T, but next fall I will be moving to the UK so I would have to switch carriers.

    Does anyone taken an iPhone from the US to the UK and tried to use it with the authorized carrier O2 over there? I don't want to get a phone and then have it turn into a paperweight in 9 months.

    To do that you will homehow need to grab a hold of an o2-iphone specific SIM, as thats how I believe they work. If you can do that, I imagine you might be home free, but if it's a regular o2 SIM... I'm of the feeling it just wont work until there is an unlock solution.

    yep

    that's what i've got.

    US handset, 1.1.1, activated with jailbreak me and then unlocked with the pre-installed AnySim app.

    works great.
