    I live in the UK

    If I bought an iPhone through the USA website, would I need to take out a phone contract to go with it?

    I just want the device so I can jailbreak it, unlock it and use my UK T-mobile SIM card with it.

    Advice please?

    If I understand you correctly, you dont set up your contract online(the apple website) you set it up through iTunes when you recieve it. So yes,you could order it.

    And Blake

    Or anyone..

    Um..
    Do you need to set it up with AT&T?

    iPodTouchMaster's newest video shows his iPhone which he bought and unlocked it for use with T-mobile - So I assume he doesn't have to pay $50 a month yes?


    I want to use my current T-Mobile contract (£45 a month or $90) So I don't want another tariff (AT&T)

    Sorry if this sounds confusing, but I even confuse myself when I want to be illegal -.-
    Thanks

    US is cheaper - probably WITH shipping.

    Put any card in and it just activates the phone? Don't need to register with a new phone company and take out a new contract?

    so long as you jailbreak and use anysim, you will not have to pay any company except for t-mobile a penny

    it's not illegal, just bending the rules.

    but it's more complicated (checking how much credit you got left, etc.) but worth it lol

    at least i think so

    thanks for the rep, Abcmsaj lol

    when you get your phone, follow one of the simple 5 minute youtube clips and by most 20mins later youll be on you 1.1.4 JB/Unlocked iphone with tmobile sim in it.
