    Is this possible? I'm looking to pass on my iPhone to a family member, but wasn't sure if the contract model is locked or not. :confused:

    I think it's only locked to the same network... so assuing the person whom your passing the unit to is using the same network, there shouldn't be much of an issue - assuming the iPhone don't actually use a 'special' sim.

    For internet access and so-forth... You'll need to tweak the communication settings.

    Should work fine, but you will need to use Pwnage to activate the phone.
