    You can unlock free by jailbreaking, right?
    After you unlock, you can use ANY Sim card/plan/whatever you are using for your normal phone right?
    Is that all that i would have to pay? Just $899?

    jailbreaking is different from unlocking but once u unlock it then that all will work unless its a 3g cuz i dont think those r unlocked yet

    So Jailbreaking wont unlock a 2g or a 3g?
    And im looking to get a 3G.
    Also does a 2G have a camera?
    And what are the differences between iPhone 2G and the iPhone 3G?

    Your signature is very, very misleading.

    Anyways, just in case you're confused 2g is referred to the Original iPhone, the one that came out a year ago. And the 3G iPhone is the new release, it supports 3G Data transfer (Like EDGE, but faster, much faster) and also has a new, sleek design, and some minor improvements to the hardware. Both have cameras.

    And at the moment there is no unlocking method for the 3G iPhone.

    How so?
    I jailbroke my friends iPhone.
    He had already unlocked his so i didnt know if it unlocked through jailbreak, or if it didnt unlock.

    So there is really no point in me get the iPhone 3G?
    Can the original iPhone do everything that an iPod Touch can do?
    And by faster connection, does that mean Wi-Fi? Or only EDGE?
    And is EDGE speed good for an Original iPhone, or is it pathetic and hopeless and you may as well not use internet outside of your Wi-Fi? lol
    Thanks for your help.

    Pretty much.

    Yes, and more.

    iPhone 3G uses 3G speeds which is faster than EDGE. Wi-Fi is the same on both.

    It's not that bad, good enough for quickly checking something on the internet, etc.

    I would just get a first gen as there is already an unlock ( QuickPwn works) and it would be useless to get 3G as you can't unlock it and it would render 3G useless.

    So 2G is the way to go right?
    And how does it look compared to the iPod touch and the iPhone 3G?
    I know the backs are different, is that all thats different?
    Does the 2G back look good?
    Is it rounded or just like the iPod Touch?

    Wait man. You have never seen an iphone before. Then why does your signature say that you've jailbroken an iphone. Maybe you are a lier or you were drunk when you jailbroke it and you don't remember?

    You can unlock it, but you have to buy a special simcard. It is not possible to software unlock the iPhone 3G yet.
