    I know currently that there is no unlock for 3.1.3 iPhone 3GS latest baseband. However, my Father has recently obtained an iPhone 3GS through his contract with O2 but he used his old sim card to activate it. But he doesn't like it and said I can have it but since he activated it with old sim card. Does this mean that he obtained an unlocked iPhone and I could re-activate it with my 3 mobile sim?

    Thanks

    No, the only way to do that is to unlock the BB but there is no unlock yet. Just use it as an ipod until the unlock comes out.

    But you didn't answer my quesion. His iPhone was sent out with no official iPhone sim card and he just activated it with his other normal 02 sim. Does this mean it is already unlocked?

    I think O2 sells unlocked phones.

    Try it an see what happens. The worst that could happen is it just wont do anything.

    Assuming its not PAYG, O2 will unlock it for a fee when it gets to the last 3 months of the iPhone contract.

    Any official carrier sim can unlock the iPhone. For example I have Tmobile but the official carrier in the US is ATT. So everytime I need to restore my phone for something I activate it with my friends sim card and then just give it back once I have unlocked the BB.
