    as long as it supports the language you need, i would buy the French unlocked iphone, so you'd have support for future upgrades, i think things are going to get tougher and tougher for the unlocking/hacking crowd.

    I am just wondering how they will arrange future activation for those unlocked phones in France... Do we all need to open up a account to france itunes to get phones activated? I believe that in the future jailbreaking and activating ain't going to be 'easy' as so far.

    I read this also. In France the iPhone will be sold in two versions; the locked which is much less than expensive than the unlocked version. This is good news! It means that Apple can no longer push out upgrades that will automatically lock phones (in theory there is no difference between a hacked unlocked phone and a legitimate locked phone). Therefore, in future, it should be easier to upgrade.

    The unlocked and Orange locked phone will have to be released at exactly the same time -- the 29th of November. French law requires that a locked/unlocked phone need to be released at the same time. The unlocked phone will be slightly more expensive. I would assume 600 - 700 EUR, though it could be lower/higher. Up until yesterday, no official statement has been made yet regarding the price.

    The nice thing about this is that if you're Orange France, you can easily modify your current service and upgrade it to Orange iPhone, whereby gaining unlimited data and VVM. Even if your with ByTel/SFR, you can port your number over to Orange.

    Personally, I'd wait for the unlocked phone if you can / can affort it. What a dream it would be to simply be able to activate my phone via iTunes as opposed to having to spend 30m jailbreaking/re-activating/re-modding it each time I restore.
