I've been reading that the old turbo sim card things, (where you have to cut ur old sim) work on the new 3G iphones.

Do you really want to go through the uncertainty of buying an overseas phone locked to a foreign carrier and unlocking it when it is available locally? The price is not dramatically cheaper.

Uno what, ur absolutly write.....after all I have a 2G iPhone, I'm sure I can live without GPS for a bit longer.

Like you said though with this much uncertanty ill drive myself nuts till it would arrive, so not worth the headache.

I am going to sell my white 16 GB iphone locked with virgin mobile for $849 + $80 unlock fee if you want unlocked phone. I already have 16gb black unlock iPhone 3G, I just need the plan from virgin as I can use the credit to call overseas. It's brand new and I'm waiting for it at the moment. I'll have it on wednesday. If any one interested let me know. Price is still negotiable. :-)
