    Default Can a 1st gen iPhone with 2.0 work on supported 3G countries / carriers?

    I've searched for this answer, and haven't found it...

    I have a 1st gen iPhone. If I upgrade to 2.0 and then try to use the phone on another country with an authorized iPhone 3G carrier, will the 1st gen iPhone work?

    Thanks!

    What do you mean exactly?

    If you mean you want to have 3G speeds on your original iPhone then you can't - 3G is a hardware update and your original iPhone does not have hardware for 3G.

    If you mean can you activate it on another network then the answer is probably yes as activation works differently that it did before BUT if your phone is locked then only the SIM from the country your in will work.

    If you unlock the phone then it doesn't matter what SIM or what country you use it in because it will work as long as your network works!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)

    Hi,

    What I meant was - with firmware 1.1.4 you need to unlock in order to use any SIM that is not from ATT.

    What happens with firmware 2.0? Can you use any SIM from Apple's official carriers worldwide? Or, are 1st gen iPhones always locked to ATT's service?
