    the iPhone isn't going to work for sprint even if it is unlocked because it's a gsm phone.

    It won't work with Sprint and the $200 price tag is the 2 year contract price.
    It's still $600-$700 for a no contract iPhone... and those are not even available yet.

    Nothing has been publically released that allows you to unlock the 3G...

    WTF?! Where do you get your info, buddy?

    Stick with Sprint, it's probably better for you.

    I presume at this stage that any iPhone (3G or 1st Gen) cannot ever be unlocked by tradtional means.

    Which is my mind is a code which can entered on the keypad which is generated via the IMIE number of the handset.

    Will unlocking always involve hacking the software? Also can someone not obtain an unlocked firmware from say an iPhone in France/Hong Kong and replicate it somehow?
