    I have 2 questions before this opinion.
    How much is a iPhone 3g (8 gig, and 16 gig respectively) worth now (without the contract)?
    I'm assuming that i can unlock the iPhone for my Fido sim card to work, correct?

    It is possible for me to get an iPhone; i've always wanted one ever since i was fascinated by my iPod touch because i didn't want to carry 2 devices (phone and ipod).

    The thing is, I can sell my iPod, and phone, but it will still not match up to the iPhone's price. Depending on how much the iPhone costs now, do you think it is a fair idea? I am still torn in between keeping my phone & ipod, and getting an iPhone straight away.

    But the iphone 4g is coming..........

    How long will u guys say it will take for the dev team to have an unlock for the new one when it comes out?

    If you cant answer that, how long did the unlock for the 3g come out, after it's release?

    well, if it took so long for them to unlock the 3G, it may take just as long, maybe longer. but now if you purchase an iPhone, i think they come preinstalled with FW 2.2.1, the locked baseband firmware.

    How long did they take.......? I can't figure out or decide on a decision if you give me vague facts (sorry if this gives a mean vibe; i can't express certain things through the internet lol)

    8GB iPhone without AT&T contract (New) = $599.

    I suggest you get one used on Ebay for around a few hundred dollars, unlock it, then put it on T-Mobile.

    Why T-Mobile?

    I currently have Fido, the iPhone WILL work with my fido sim card when unlocked.. right?
