    If you want the iPhone I'd suggest getting a 2G and yes it can be used elsewhere in the world.

    If you really want to get the 3G you'll have to find one that is unlocked (or able to be unlocked but they are not very common).

    Since you're only going to be in the US for 3 months I'd get a prepay plan.

    I dont think theres any prepaid plan available for the iPhone 3G. If you used your AT&T plan over seas than your bill will be pretty high. You could get a iPhone 2G or iPhone 3G and unlock it via the sim though. Look up turbo sim. And cant you just wait to buy it in that other country your going to? By then im guessing the new iPhone will be out.

    No there isn't a prepay plan for the iPhone but if he got an unlocked iPhone he could use a prepay plan with it (either at&t or T-Mobile). Then when he leaves the U.S. he doesn't need to hassle with the plan and he can just get a new account in whatever country he is going to and use that SIM in his unlocked iPhone.

    technoman: It might help to know what country you are going to?
