    Default Can I buy a US iphone with no contract ?

    Hi All,

    Going to vegas in 3 days, I got a 2g over there last year from the apple shop with no contact to sign just pay and go which I'm using in the UK on 2.01 firmware that I winpwn with no problems...

    I know that if I go to the UK 02 shop or carphone warehouse they make me sign to a 18month contract and sign/activate prior to leaving the shop, is it possible in vegas to just buy a 3g iphone with no paperwork/contact/activation like last year with the 2g phone ?

    If it is possible, can it be winpwn/jailbroken to use in the UK ? Plus can anyone point me to the most user friendly instructions that they have successfully used...

    If anyone has bought one in the US how much are the 8gb phones going for ??


    If you have to sign for a contact on the 3g in the shop do they still have the 2G that you can just pay and go like previous ?

    Many thanks in advanve for any help...

    Take a look at here.

    At the moment iPhone 3G's can only be jailbroken. iPhone Dev. Team is still working hard but not giving a release date for the PwnageTool that is capable of unlocking iPhone 3G.

    Cheers for the reply cansurmeli, I'm happy to buy they phone in the Apple shop in Vegas even if it can't yet be used in the UK. I purchased the 2g over in Vegas last year just as the 1.4 firmware came out and could not use it until a jailbreak was made for the 1.4

    My big question is will they sell me a iphone in the apple shop with just my credit card and no signup/contact/activation ?

    If not do they still have the 2g, which i'll be quite happy to get as the new phone is for my girlfriend as the N95 contract she has is due to end soon... But I was looking to give the 2G I have already to her and get a 3g for myself...

    cheers...

    I haven't heard of being able to buy one without a contract yet.

    If you know anyone in Australia, Optus prepaid will sell you an iPhone outright, then $80 to have it unlocked.
