    I think you can buy a pay as you go version but it costs more to get it unlocked and I think you have to phone up a number in france and request an unlock which takes a week or so and also have proof of a french address.

    They are not making it easy.

    Far better to get one from Italy where anyone can buy it and it is factory unlocked - you could even get one off ebay!

    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    Yes. They are locked.

    They can be unlocked but there are conditions that make it very hard for anyone not french to get it unlocked.

    If you had french relatives then you could sort it out but otherwise it will be more tricky than going to Italy!

    This may be a dumb question, but can Orange France unlock an AT&T iPhone if you meet their restrictions?

    I can't wait for until the dev team comes out with an unlock for iphone 3g. I am with rogers and its the only GSM carrier here but never the less I just wana know that millions of users can stick it to them basterds in apple and every carrier that locks the iphone....
