    ou could put an o2 sim in it but you would need to activate it in iTunes. The T-Mobile one would't work with that, but it would if you bought the Orange unlocked version from France.

    Oh poop, why not.... Thats annoying... I was going to buy one on the 9th but it doesnt seem like a good idea now. There has to be a way to use it with pay as you go.

    you have to take one of the tariffs on offer. if you fail to credit check there MAY be another option for pre pay. but that's speculation based on the at&t experience.

    otherwise, the only other option is to hack the phone.

    ....and that presents an uncertain situation at the moment.

    Anyone know when the unlocked French version will be available?
