    Hi everyone, i am thinking about getting a iphone 3gs on pay as you go.

    I am currently on a contract with THREE network so i was wondering, when i get my iphone 3gs, can i put my sim card inside there and the contract will still work and i can call and text from there?

    Secondly, when i get the iphone 3gs on pay as you go, it says that i can only get 12 months of unlimited wifi and 3G.....is there any hack that can extend that? or any way without paying £10 every month?

    Thirdly, Three network is the only network that allows u to make UNLIMITED SKYPE CALLS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WITH ANY OTHER THREE PHONE. Some mobiles by Three often have skype installed inside it and wherever i go with my W595 i can just open up skype and call the person. I know that skype is an application but would it work the same?

    Your First Question: Not automatically. You will have to unlcok your iPhone 3GS with Redsn0w and Ultrasn0w.

    Your Second Question: No, that is to do with the cell network, not the iPhone itself. When it says wi-fi it means public wi-fi made by that carrier. Your home wi-fi etc. will always be free.

    Your Third Question: Not entirely sure, but skype should work fine as long as you use the same account as your old phone.

    Do you actually expect to be given 3G service for free for life?

    1. To use the Three SIM on an O2 locked 3GS you need to unlock it.
    2. The free WiFi and 3G is an O2 promotion. If you use the Three SIM you won't be able to avail of it.
    3. I think 'MAKING FREE SKYPE CALLS TO ANYONE IN THE WORLD' requires you to use the Skype application on a Three phone

    Contract "people" get it for as long as the contract lasts.

    Without 3G, iphone 3gs will be pretty useless if ipod touch 3G comes out.....?Right?

    Pretty much.

    Granted, the next iPod acquires a camera, which is still unannounced.
    That would be the only major thing left to include (and a GPS).

    As i said in my First post....I Currently have an Three Network W595 including a:

    3.2 Megapixel Camera (better than the iphone, zooming and autofocus)
    Bluetooth (better than the iphone/more free)
    Unlimited calls anywhere i go with skype (better than the iphone, does not require WiFi)
    FM Radio (not inside iphone)
    Click here for more functionality

    And on top of that, i also have an ipod touch......soooo what do u guys recommend me?

    All i want in the new ipod is a camera, gps and voice control! would win me over and i would buy it the first day its released.
