    The Netherlands
    I want my Iphone too!
    I've seen the touchscreen on iPod and i want one!:D
    But no one seems to have any idea when it will be sold over here - The Netherlands- and by which carrier (i'm on Vodafone and don't want to have to switch)

    Apple will be rolling out the new yet to be released 3G iPhone in many countries across Europe shortly. I believe unfortunately for you it will be with T-Mobile in the netherlands, however the good news is that it will be sometime this year.

    You could just import one from the US or the UK and hack it, and put in your Vodafone sim.

    Same here. Sweden isnt on the list of markets in mind to introduce the iphone. Blows big time. My dad will have to grab one in NY if I dont see an iphone in sweden by late fall. :(

    But how do you do it? I thought that if you bought an iphone from the us you'll have to pay for the whole phone + the remaining months to go on your subscription?! And then hack it...

    that would be like

    600 for the phone + AT&T bills

    until you've paid off the subscription...right?

    = a lot of money...

    No. You can walk in to a store (in any country that sells them), buy the phone (for the same prices as everyone else), take it back to the netherlands, use one of a few bits of free software available to unlock it, slot your SIM in and away you go. All that left to pay is the contract on the SIM you use!

    I thought that the iphone was sold ONLY with an AT&T subscription? :confused:

    No its sold as a stand alone item not associated with any subscription to any network.

    You take it home and in the case of the UK you activate it through iTunes which in turn links to an O2 contract.

    Of course you don't do this, you just download some software like iliberty for example which cracks the software and slot in your own sim card and away you go.

    Simply buy an iPhone from Ebay.
