Basically every carrier that has spoken about possibly carrying the iPhone in Europe has stated that a 3G iPhone is almost a sure thing. Obviously this is still speculation / rumor. But who is to say that if they do deliver a 3G iPhone in Europe that they will also simultaneously release it in the US. Also, who would prevent somebody from buying it oversees and then bringing it back to the US unlocked or even buying it on ebay? Is this even feasably possible.
