    Well, yes and no...

    Yes, the US iPhone will work on European 3G networks.

    However, as far as I'm aware, no one has unlocked a 3G iphone. So you'd have to sign up for AT&T. And I'm guessing that the international roaming charges probably offset any incentive to get one faster via the US.

    But say when the unlocking software(if it does) comes out would it be compatible with the European 3g network since it differs from the US one?
