Unlocking new UK bought iPhone question?
I'm thinking of buying an iPhone from Apple store in the UK.
If i do this, is it possible to unlock it so I can use my Vodaphone contract sim card in it?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.
Or should I just buy an unlocked one off eBay for £395?
If a new UK-purchased iPhone can be unlocked to use my Vodaphone sim, is it easy to do, or is it difficult and can you screw up the phone?
Anything else I should be aware of?
At present there is no way to Unlock a UK Iphone to use with another providers sim card, there is away to use another o2 sim card! that did not get supplied with the phone ie o2 pay and go but not Vodaphone at the moment.
This is due to the Baseband being 4.06 and Firmware 1.1.2 which is on all OOB UK ipjones
If you get a Ebay you will probably have 1.1.1.
You can upgrade this to 1.1.2 as the baseband would then be 4.02
I would go for buying one of ebay but 395 sounds abit steep.
So my suggestion - Buy phone from Ebay USA 1.1.1 and dont upgrade to 1.1.2
until there is an easy way, Which I belive there will be with Idemocracy 2
But this will only work with USA 1.1.2 phone for the time being.
