    Hi,

    I'm planning to buy an iPhone 3g from New Zealand (fully unlocked) which I'm intending to use in the UK on the O2 network. I currently have a plan on the O2 network (some random plan, not iphone related) and I'm wondering if i could use data with my current O2 sim card in the unlocked New Zealand 3g iPhone. Would there be any fuss? Would i have to change the APN or something?

    Thank you for your time :)

    Unless your existing plan has a data allowance then you will pay per Mb for data and it will get very expensive, very quickly...

    I'd look at the data bolt-on if I were you.

    Alright, getting one of those. Thanks :)

    So it'll just work from the moment i pop the sim in? No APN changing and stuff?

    No idea about that bit: mine is a UK one.

    My settings (in Settings->General->Network->Cellular Data Network) are:

    APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
    Username: veritgo
    Password: password

    This username give image compression. There is a different one (do a Google search) that turns that off.
