    ok im new to the iphone thing ive had a ipod touch but i thought it was pointless to carry 2 different things for listening to music and calling. only problem i have is, is that i dont have enough money to pay 30 dollars a month for the internet. how excatly does the unlocking stuff work and does anybody know where you can get cheap reliable unlocked ones? sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    unlocking an iphone is to use it on an unofficial carrier..you could always buy one from somebody and just block the internet on your phone by calling your phone company and have them block the internet

    You can find used unlocked phones on eBay and craigslist. Keep in mind, people sell their unlocked phones for prices considerably higher than AT&T's subsidized price.

    i might have one but not to be noobish but do iPhones have the Sim card slot and is it accessible without taking the phone apart.

    The sim card slot is at the top of the phone. It needs a pin to release the sim tray. You can't open the phone, its all sealed.

    it depends on what type of plan you get for your unofficial network.
