    Default [iPhone 3G] I have an unlocked iPhone 3G

    Well I was here over a year ago and not impressed with the first gen iPhone.

    Well I just received my officially unlocked iPhone 3G and I must say IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT !

    Expensive ? yes.

    The box was shrinked wrapped and the phone untouched.

    Popped in Orange Israel 3G SIM and voila !

    Connected to iTunes, updated to 2.02 and all OK.

    I can seriously recommend spending the money and getting an officially unlocked, non hacked phone.

    PEACE OF MIND !

    I paid 1000 USD for the phone and I use my existing 3G account. You may think thats a lot of money ! Well, consider this: the contract price of $200 or whatever is based on a signup for a 2 year contract. The total cost of ownership is a lot more as Apple claw back a percentage from the carrier. They say 2 years but the reality is most people will stay a lot longer.

    So its clear: if you want it now then you have to pay. But you get a fully unlocked phone, no headaches with bricking/updates etc.

    Depending on your priorities and finances, you can decide how to proceed !

    There is no plan to release iPhone here in Israel - prob due to the amount of unofficial 2G models still selling and/or issues with Hebrew SMS.

    For what its worth - the product is excellent ! And it all works except the Visual VM. But who cares about that !

    Given the current strong demand and small offer for unlocked 3G iPhones, I don't think you've paid it a lot of money.
    I've seen unlocked 3g 16gb iPhones sold on eBay in excess of 1500 USD (on auctions where the start price was 1 USD).

    I have the 16GB with the white back.

    Just spent THREE HOURS sorting all of my contacts on my Mac, then syncing with MobileMe and then waiting for the PUSH to the iPhone ! Magic !

    The SIM import function kind of screws the names up also....

    Anyway - all in order now !
