    I'm thinking of buying a pay go iphone 3G tomorrow in the UK. Can someone please give me a concise reply outlining if it can be unlocked etc - the basic in's and out's in bullet form. I want to use it on T-mobile UK. I've looked at the forums and I'm alittle lost where to start - need a starting point.

    Many thanks.

    Nope. iPhone 3G can't be unlocked yet. The dev team is working on it.

    Hardware unlocks work.

    Oh. Ok. Google turboSIM. That's one of your options. I've used two different hardware SIM unlocks- the first one died randomly one day after about 3 months, the second one worked fine about 4 days out of 5, and would quit working on the fifth and I had to restart, and resync before it would work again. I don't not suggest going this route. I'm gonna wait on the 3G (I have t-mo).

    turbo-sim

    I have t-mo now also -- I couldn't take another day of ATT ... I just put a turbo sim in my 3g and it works great (once you get it into the phone - surely removing it will be a worse experience), with one major exception -- not able to sync with iTunes. I'll have to search around to see if there is a work-around for that.

    Luckily I still had my 2g laying around and the jailbreak unlock worked great and I can sync - this is using 2.1 and iTunes 8
