    Hi Heeman,

    Yes, you will need to unlock the phone first. The best bet is to pay Optus to unlock it, your friend should be able to contact Optus and arrange.

    Cheers,

    Pretty sure Optus will unlock it for free.

    Yes, but make sure your 3 plan includes some data - I'd suggest 100MB/month minimum, but you can usually increase this if you find thats not enough.

    I use my unlocked Optus iPhone with my old 3 plan. It works perfectly- I added a 200mb data pack to my plan for $8 a month - the only thing you can't use is the free skype minutes

    Why can't we use the free skype minutes?
