    I know its gonna happen. With it being unlocked in other countries, and...the sheer resourcefulness of the US iPhone scene, how long before we see these bad boys up for the taking.?

    Jailbroken? 1 day or so
    Unlocked? Maybe a few weeks, tops.

    Gonna be pricey. Since there is no way to get the phone in the US without signing up for 2 years of AT&T, sellers won't be able to buy very many, and the ones they do buy will have a markup equal to the early termination fee they had to pay to break AT&T's contract.

    I have no idea but they are amazing, they have most of the 2.0 beta's that have been released jailbroken so 1 day or so with the new firmware, they will work their magic and have it jailbroken. Now having all the existing apps on Installer updated to work on 2.0 is another story

    Lol, yeah they will be able to make the apps 2.0 compatible but it will take a few more days after the actual jailbreaking:)

    to tel lyou the truth, i dont think ill do anything to my phone for at least a month... ill savour it as what it is before i try to hack it.

    i was going to say ill savour it virginised (i believe that is an actual term), but i thought it might get too sus.
