    Default iPhone Unlock Question

    So, like everyone else who was patient enough to wait for the iPod touch, I'm contemplating between buying the 399 iPhone(8Gb) or the 399 iPod Touch(16Gb). I am currently an AT&T customer, so I don't have a problem with the SIM card lock(I don't think), but I really do not want to pay the extra 20 dollar/month data plan. So my question is this: With the software unlocks available, like iActivator or IASign, will I be able to use the iPhone as a phone with my existing AT&T plan or no?

    No, By Now, You Just Can Have Your Iphone Hw Unlocked, Or Using An Sim Unlock Method.
    Only Software Method Is Still Under Development.

    I just decided to move forward so I'll buy the iPod Touch and Ill buy also the Motorola A1200 (known as Ming is Asia Pacific). This cell phone is Linux-based and is possible to sync it with Lotus Notes as well as Outlook. There are several applications software in the web and also there is a forum, www.motorolafans.com, with hundreds of post supporting and developing applications for Ming. Im sick about Steve Jobs and his "way to do business", fuc.....g the rest of the world

    I think there's no reason you should buy an iPod Touch and carry two gadgets.
    It should work.

    Yes, i understand that, but I was under the impression that since I have an AT&T simcard I wouldn't necessarily need the full on SIM card unlock--only the activation that I have to do, normally through iTunes...So like basically I was wondering if I could use an iPhone with an AT&T account without paying for the monthly data service...

    yes you can, you just need to activate the phone manually, then you can use it with a AT&T Sim card

    Yes you can use the iphone on a non-iphone ATT plan. I am currently in the process of doing it. One link which explains how to do this with a cingular pay-as-you-go card is http://www.hacktheiphone.com/iphone_...gular_sim.html
    You should basically do similar steps except use your ATT sim card (post-paid or pre-paid)
