    I'm from teh Caribbean and i'm looking into teh purchase of a 1G, but the unlocked is like DOUBLE the price of one locked into a US carrier eg AT&T
    My question is

    Can i just get one that's locked into AT&T and unlock it so I can use it with my local simcard?

    2G iPhones are relatively cheap nowadays. But to answer your question, yes, you can buy a locked 2G iPhone, and unlock it with Redsn0w.

    the iPhone 2G is permanently unlocked so yes you could buy one and then use blackra1n to jailbreak and then install bootneuter from cydia which will unlock it for you.

    ahh that sounds sweet.
    SO go with the 2G then right? Is the back metallic? That's what i really want, an iphone that is metallic. If so I will take that advice

    Is there anything else i should know about before i make my purchase on ebay?
