    Default [Iphone 3g]is it taking longer?

    i am just curious, if we compare the new 3g to the 2g iphone up to this point in time, which of these two models is taking more time to get unlocked? since the 3g is still unlocked, was the 2g unlocked by that time? sorry for my english if i cant explain. it is not my first language.

    didn't it take about 2 months for the 2g iphone to be unlocked? Also, iphone 2g was apple's first phone and they learned from their 1 year experiences.

    Personally I think Apple knew exactly what they were doing, and deliberately made the 2G iPhone unlockable. It was Apple who first made the big deal about catching out the hackers, which in turn drover interest to the unlocked handsets. By 'patching' the software updates it created more press through the 2G's lifespan thus kept interest. But I for one are under no illusion that they knew the patches were easily foiled.

    In short they made a phone knowing that it lacked a vital ingredient (3G) accessible to the masses, so it would inevitably drive up demand for the 3G when it came out.

    Just look at the sales of the 3G - Apple aren't stupid.
    Home = iMac - 20" 2ghz Intel core 2 Duo
    Home = Powerbook - 17" G4 1Ghz
    Work = Mac Pro - 2x2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Harpertown”
    Mobile = iPhone 3G 16gb White 2.2 - Apple Factory unlocked and loving the Vodafone Network!
