    Nope sorry, the unlocked French phone only works with French carriers. But if you need help getting an unlocked one in the states, let me know.

    Yeah, the problem is classified as a bug experienced by a small number of people.

    so french iphones would work in the states right?

    if that's so, how would iTunes updating in the future affect the lock free status?
