    As far as I know, unless the Iphone 3G is factory unlocked, you are NOT able to do this.

    Absolutely correct. only on the factory unlocked iPhones 3G you have the choice of any simcard.

    You cannot do this.

    iPhone 3G's are carrier locked.

    I bought an Iphone in the US with an AT&T contract I canceled the contract after 30 days paid the ETF of $175,00 because I moved to Europe. Then I had a locked Iphone without a provider. As far as I know I am free to use any provider I wish, this was also confirmed by T-Mobile who is now my new provider legally.

    I heard the same thing but so far I could not do it. I have an iPhone 3g locked on Orange France and tried to use an Orange Romania SIM (which is the approved carrier for Romania) and it did not work. I talked to Orange Romania and they said that the phones are carrier locked and they will work only with SIMs from the respective carrier. If they lied to me I lie to you

    it is disgusting how these bozos mistreat their customers. Globalization is good as long offered only to mafia. iHope ;-) class action lawsuit will teach them a lesson. Designed in California, assembled in China, locked to us.

    Thats because they are int. unlocked. You can check the list here

    The iPhone 3G acts like the one's from Italy, Greece, Belgium and other countries where Apple 8and their partners) have to sell them unlocked
