iphone 3gs from usa
If I buy an iphone from the usa can I put an 02 sim in ie: simplicity ?
Would I need to unblock the phone or make any changes?
And would all functions work?
Hope you can help Thanks
No it will not be straightforward or simle. It is not recommended and it does not really save very much money. AT&T make this hard to do without a lot of extra fees for cancelling the contract

The unlock for current model 3GS and 3G iPhones introduces a much higher risk that you will lose wifi functionality. There is no solution for this aside from claiming warranty with Apple. Of course Apple will not honour the warranty of a USA phone in the UK especially if it was never activated with a legitimate carrier.
If you want an iPhone in the UK, get it in the UK or buy a factory unlocked iPhone from Australia or Hong Kong, these work anywhere in the world with any carrier that supports the most common 3G frequencies.

Not trying to thread-jack, but is there a post on the forum specifically about those wireless issues? I'm quite intrigued about the wifi functionality issues and have had a few users at my company experience these issues after unlocking/jailbreaking and while I absolutely cannot condone jailbreaking in a corporate environment, finding a solution to the problem would be good -- and I'm not having any luck searching and finding it on the forums so far.
