    Well I was going to buy an iPhone 4 no contract from Apple for $700 but now i guess I can't because of the newest firmware.

    1. Should I buy it and use it as a super iPod Touch until a new jailbreak and unlock comes out?
    2. Where can I buy one for the same price ($700 for 32GB) with iOS 4 on it?
    3. Should I just wait for a new Jailbreak and Unlock and keep my iPhone 3G until then?

    Would the unlock take a long time or would it be pretty fast? I know nobody knows how long it will take but how long do unlocks normally take? I never keep track. Thanks guys.

    No, I believe it's still locked to AT&T. And I guess you can check on craigslist or something. It may be a bit used (or may be brand new), but it's worth a shot if you really want it on 4.0.

    No, it's locked to AT&T but I have an AT&T sim card I use for activation so I could use it as an iPod. Would downgrading to iOS 4 be possible?

    Downgrading wont be possible because the phone won't be able to read the lower FW. Just a FYI it already comes with a micro sim for activation

    Well, if you're going to buy it from another country, just buy it from Canada. They are unlocked here as well.
