    Default Recommendations for int'l travel

    I'm going to be traveling abroad and want to use iphone for email/browsing/3g goodies without bothering with AT&T roaming. My phone is not jailbroken or unlocked. I'm looking for a solution.

    After you unlock the phone, can you still use it on the AT&T network as usual, if I kept the SIM in and continued using it as before? I assume AT&T will continue to bill me regardless. Or would I need a new plan immediately? This would mean I couldn't unlock until I left for France.

    My contract doesn't run out until August, and I wouldn't mind seeing it through until then if possible.

    I'm thinking of unlocking the phone so I can use a local SIM in France, then restoring my old plan when I come back. I'd appreciate any advice on the best plan of action from the knowledgeable people on this forum.

    What iPhone model and OS version?

    You posted under blacksn0w so I am guessing you are running OS 3.1.2

    blacksn0w is not so easy to turn on and off when you want. Ultrasn0w is much easier to do this with but you need to not have upgraded to OS 3.1.2 for that.

    You are 100% out of luck with a software unlock. Can jailbreak with redsn0w 0.9.2
