    So now that the iPhone G3 is coming out can we still change phone companies if we hack it or is it going to be all locked up until we activate it at a AT&T. I'm thinking of returning my 32gig touch and buying a iPhone 3G but if it's going to be useless until I activate it at AT&T then I wont.

    My understanding of it from a apple tech. is that it will be completely useless unless we get a wireless plan with AT&T. No music, camera, nothing.

    Well, no one knows if it may be unlockable or not... its not out yet so no ones has it in their hands to test it out...

    Just keep your touch and wait... earn money and see what happens...

    right now the answer remains at you must have at&t but maybe if we all give it some time after the release some1 will find a way to unlock it shortly after.

    There are lots of threads that say the same sh*t overe and over. SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST!!!!!!! The only way to use the iphone with other carriers is if its unlockable the last few betas were not unlockable so until the iphone is released and then unlocked you can ONLY use att
