He though wants to keep his contract with another phone .is there a way to unlock the iphone 4. or can i just use a pay as u go orange sim like normal with no unlock.

    Yes, the iPhone 4 can be unlocked via ultrasn0w (requires jailbreak).

    If the phone is locked to orange, then it will work on both orange PAYG and contract. So yes, you don't need to unlock if you use an ORANGE sim.

    Don't forget you could buy it from Apple online and get it factory unlocked? Then keep your current contract or get a cheaper one?... Its what I plan to do with o2.

    An upgrade fee is probably a lot cheaper than buying an iPhone 4 from apple!

    upgrade is cheaper in my case .
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    It will most likely come with 4.0.2 and there is no jailbreak yet .
