Hi there, I'm hoping to get an iPhone here in the UK on the 9th November, however I cannot afford the Contract that you have to use with it, and plus I've never been a fan of contract phones anyway. So, I just some kind of reassurance and clarification on what I plan to do, bearing in mind I've no knowledge of how the unlocking process works etc. Here's what I assume is how it works, correct me if I'm wrong: ** I buy the iPhone from an Apple Store or similar, un-activated. ** I take it home and unlock it myself, this is where I need more help than anything, as I'm unsure of what software to use, how to do it etc. ** I can insert my Pay-As-You-Go O2 Sim Card that I use currently. Also, does the unlock prevent me from using any of the iPhone's features, or can you just use it as normal? I can't think of any more questions now, but I think that's all I need to know. Thanks in advance.
