I don't have any more photos of the iPhone itself in Australia, but I thought I might share a photo that I love taken by the iPhone.

This is a photo I took on the plane between Melbourne and Sydney that shows just how much snow we've been getting (and consequently how bloody cold this winter has been).

So, where did you buy one, off ebay??

Also, how did you get around the activation??

24th July 2007, 08:24 PM
Are they unlocked and how much (A$) did they set you back... If you could get one unlocked over here I might just have my next phone. My dopod is shit.

My question too - given that I lost my precious AT&T activation and had to re-activate using the YouTube-less Dev Wiki method, keen to hear how you activated (and if by AT&T, what you intend to do about the contract).

iPhone will be on optus in Jan 2008...

how will you make phone calls then? :P

I know what you mean... yeah how much did it set you back in $AU to get the 4gb iphone + delivery? (if you dont want to answer it here, pm me please, I'd be interested to know).

I will post some pics soon. I am watching the hacking forums closely.. ok obsessively!

At the moment i connect it to work and home wifi network, very expensive PDA. LOL.. actualy its not really. i remember paying $800 or more for my palm tungsten T year ago that gave me the poos and now sits in a drawer somewhere.

I am not that concerned with 3G. For all those people who go dreamy about 3G i have not seen a superfast awsome OMG 3G phone yet... and i currently have a 3G phone. Phone/SMS and basic email will do me fine.

From my understanding that wasn't quite correct - it seems (assuming the story was true) that someone working for Vodafone actually activated the original AT&T SIM card onto the Vodafone network. Whilst this is technically possible, apparently it's very bad form for a mobile provider to activate another provider's SIM card.

I'd still be skeptical about the claim, however, as it appears that the iPhone performs network locking at two levels:

1. Locking to an iPhone SIM (as evidenced by the fact that people have identified a modification that allows the iPhone to accept non iPhone SIMs)

2. Locking to AT&T / Cingular (as evidenced by the fact that after performing modifying as above you can use any other AT&T or Cingular SIM but not a SIM from another provider).

I'm guessing that there is some kind of handshaking that occurs when the iPhone registers a SIM onto the network, and that if the desired response is not received during handshaking then the iPhone cancels the registration so the phone cannot be used. How this would occur with international roaming is another question.

The short of it is that the iPhone will be cracked to work with any provider's SIM eventually - there is too much money to be made in selling the crack / selling unlocked phones for someone not to be working on the problem.

Guys if you have photos of your iPhone, send em in to ilounge as they are doing the 'iphones around the world' gallery, and are giving away 10 jawbone bt headsets randomly on 10 Aug.

Unlikely. Optus and AT&T have roaming agreements. Go into your AU phone and do a manual network search. you'll find hundreds of carriers on your SIM card that the phone can roam onto.

If you have an AT&T GSM phone and come to Australia with it, it should roam onto Optus or Voda from memory. It's just reciprocal arrangements, nothing sinister.

I'd be surprised if the current version is even released in AU. Most carriers would be reluctant to commit to such a large spend on infrastructure to support a device which is not 3G.

Just my 2c.

No. But you do have to be in the US and able to subscribe to AT&T if you want it to work as a phone.

As activation takes 30 seconds for any competent person, US$100 is a little steep to pay on top.
