    I'm thinking to get the iphone 3G soon. Please post answers to the question number. Thanks, all help is appreciated.

    1. Do new iphone 3G's automatically have the latest 2.2.1 firmware if bought at the apple store?

    2. Since the 3G dropped in price, can you buy the iphone without signing up for an AT&T cell phone plan at the apple store?

    3. Which websites sell new iphone 3G's?

    4. Can you unlock the 3G with yellowsn0w and not use a carrier and use it as an enhanced ipod? (Ex. no calling, texting, but you get mic, camera, gps.)

    This is a response to #2. How can you just get the iphone from the apple store without signing up for a new carrier? What i mean is do some people cancel the plan right after they sign up for it? Please explain, I'm confused at how some people use it as just a better ipod.

    People buy them from Craiglist, or like me... get it from a brother that got a new one.

    You can get one with a contract, and then cancel that contract... but i think to cancel a contract early is like 100$+

    my friend heard that the iPhone has a log file.
    I do NOT know if this is true, but you never know. If you don't F up your phone, you don't have to send it to apple though, sooo

    I know thats an other way to go undetected. But things will be different i guess with the 3gS. Lets wait for friday to see whats under the hood of the 3GS.

    This is in an iTunes backup. Just "Setup as new iPhone" after restore.
