    Default [iPhone 3G] eBay sellers claim they sell them unlocked at the release day

    Hey guys

    This is my first post, but i've been reading threads for a while trying to make sense of all the info on the new 3G iPhone

    Anyways i'm currently on the "3" network in the UK and obviously i'm interested in the new iPhone

    I was looking at the phones on eBay, and there any many guys on there which claim to be able to sell the phone unlocked on the day of release?

    Is this possible? Or if i buy one am i gonna be lumped with a phone which won't work with my "3" sim card

    Obviously the prices on eBay are quite steep, my question is, would i be better to wait for the Pay As You Go Phones to be released and then attempt to unlock it myself?

    Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated as i am completly new to all this.

    Thanks guys

    Personally I'd stear clear from buying a 3G Iphone from ebay which claims to be unlocked on the day of the launch as there would be no credability that it was unlocked.

    Not even the Dev Team have a unlock out yet and I think you may run a higher risk of bricking your new phone. I'd hang on until a proper unlock was released. With the Iphone not being released yet I'm not sure how someone could be claiming to sell the 3G model unlocked

    Just my thoughts though, someone may think differently

    thanks man

    i was very dubious about buying one off of eBay,

    Once the phone is unlocked will i still be able to download the applications from itunes?

    Thanks again for your advice

    I really dont know dude, not sure if anyone knows at the app store hasnt launched yet

    I would imagine, and this is purely guess work that apple will probably / maybe do some sort of pre-req check on your phone as you buy stuff from the app store, just a guess, i hope they dont but it wouldnt suprise me if they did

    who knows, even if they do, no doubt someone somewhere will come up with a different installer app down the line

    aren't they sold unlocked in some countries (by law like france)? Either case I would not buy any from ebay yet whatever it may say.

    eBay is a bucket full of Scammers.

    Make sure the 2.0 and the iPhone 3G is unlocked here (you'll see a Sticky announcement) before jumping in.

    look at that one guy claims to have ten of them, and says that they will be sent to the buyer unlocked

    Why do eBay let this go on

    Its shocking
