    Default Possible to unlock iPhone 3G for use just on the 2G band?

    I've been reading around as to how it's not possible to unlock the iPhone 3G to use on the 3G network. However, correct me if I'm wrong, it's possible to get it to work on the 3G network. Is this correct?

    I've just bought a Canadian iPhone 3G for use here in Sweden. I know it was unlocked when I bought it, figured I'd use it as an iPod Touch until it's unlockable. Now, if I could get the basic functions to function (calls, SMS etc. ) I'd be happy until it can be fully unlocked.

    So my question is; is this possible, or have I just understood the situation wrong?

    No, this is not possible. You will have to use it as an iPod Touch until an unlock is available.

    Ok, that's kinda what I figured.
    Thanks.

    A question regarding the unlocking; do you know if any of the groups working on the unlock are using already unlocked iPhones that are being sold around the world in order to see how they work?

    ..and those essentials dont help much. We have official unlocked iPhones since a year, the one's sold in France (2G), a while in Germany (two weeks) were official unlocked aswell.

    And Italy, France and Belgium are selling unlocked iPhone 3G's.
    How about if you cancel your AT&T subscription, do they then software or hardware unlock your phone for you?
