    Default Best way to get an unlocked iPhone 3G?

    What is the best and cheapest way to get an unlocked iPhone 3G 8 GB on the Internet? I don't want to travel to Italy or Belgium. EBay is definitely too expensive with 800 euros or so.

    Is it possible to order one at vodafone.it or time.it for Germany? Are they available there?

    Thanks for any help!

    you cant order from outside of italy you need an italian address and an italian issued card to order.
    So thats it you have 2 options.
    1) go to italy
    2) buy from ebay italy
    3) thats it im afraid.

    In Hong Kong they're selling for about $800-$900 for 8GB and a touch above $1000 for the 16GB. I saw a 99% condition white 16GB one for US$950 today.

    hi,

    I bought my iPhone at Vodafone/ Portugal. It was not cheap, and the unlock costs 200 extra. Since the iPhone is sold out in other countries in Europe I took my chance.
    Vodafone took the money for the unlock and sayd "it takes up to 48 hours to get the unlock code"
    After some complaining I got the call telling me all I have to do is to make an update/ restore of my device with iTunes. I did it several times since then, but my iPhone continues locked.
    Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Brgds
    Papick
