    probably pretty obvious - but make sure it's a new(er) 3G iPhone. I recently upgraded to a new 3G iPhone on an O2 contract. I gave my old 'jailbroken' 2.5G iPhone, which I used with my old Vodafone contract, to my brother and his 'Three' sim card did not work with the phone.

    Further to this - if it is brand new and the firmware has already been upgraded to 2.2.1 then unlocking is not going to happen. You can jailbreak it but not unlock it to accept other sims. With this firmware upgrade the baseband of the phone itself is also irreversibly upgraded - just a word of warning :-)

    Erm,

    Dev-Team Blog

    The software is free and pretty easy to use. Looks like even the new 3.0 is Jailbreakable. Maybe issues, as SC-UK, points out with unlocking the network though.

    Also, PEO's link to a 'pay us £17 for free software'!?! site only mentions upto version 2.2. So there maybe issues with firmware 2.2.1 and unlocking the phone.

    You buying it on pay and go? I'm seriously considering it as I hate my N95 (Great Camera but not much else) now, but I'm still under contract. Very expensive tho

    Just got rid of my N95, pretty nice phone, make sure you update the firmware it increases the speed of all the apps by miles!!! Carphone warehouse are doing great trade in deal for the N95 at the moment.

    Only downside of the N95 is that the Scumm VM is hard to use lol (I need monkey island as its awesome)

    Well its not really broken. They are working on stripping the 2.2 baseband that can be broken and replacing the 2.2.1 baseband but its very risky stuff with stability issues a plenty I have heard.
    Currently though if you get 2.2.1 you will probably be stuff for that plan because nothings public yet. I just left my iphone on 2.2 in case I want to unlock it.

    Exactly - it's only unlocking the network that poses a problem. I have my 2.2.1 3G jailbroken but couldn't unlock it. I'm not really that bothered - around here O2 is about the only carrier with any signal!

    I think they've added the ability to do that in the 3.0 firmware. It's currently in beta tho, and you need to be a registered developer (£59 a year!) or know someone who is (they can add up to 100 phones to an account)
