    Hi,

    I wasn't aware that they sold these without contract? I know you can buy one pay as you go but can I also walk into an O2 shop and buy one of the counter that will work with any SIM?

    Actually, they don't. They sell it on Pay-As-You-Go, for around 450/550; but it's still simlocked.

    I believe some European operators sell it unlocked, but only where there's been a legal challenge to enforce the non-exclusivity under European law. If memory serves, France was one of those countries.

    I'd be very interested to hear of any carriers selling the 3GⓈ unlocked, and at what price.

    I meant comntract free (ie PAYG ) not unlocked.
    Italy, Belgium, HK and UAE sell unlocked France, Australia and many others sell locked but have to (by law) provide unlock codes after a period of time (usually 6 months).

    So, a quick trip to Belgium on the Eurostar might be in order. I wonder how one would find out which shops have the unlocked versions. Anyone here know who sells iPhones in Belgium?
