Unlocking question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
New here and looking for some info as I am considering buying an Iphone in the near future..

I'm sure this has been asked before but I searched and couldn't find what I was looking for, so here goes:
I alternate homes between the US and the Netherlands and thus need to unlock my Iphone for it to work on both sides of the pond. Now I can buy a "new" (but not yet activated) Iphone, but how would I go about unlocking it? What I'd like to know is, can I just take it to somebody to unlock&jailbreak it for me and I can put my (Dutch) SIM in or is there more to it?
On another note, would it even be smart to dish out $350 for an 8 GB phone now as I read about yet another price drop to $299 for a new one?
All advice appreciated, I just want one...

There are several methods of unlocking the iPhone. After you do so I'd recommend buying Next SIM 2 from Spiderfoot, if you are indeed going to be alternating between countries like that. Just don't "stick" the chip to the SIM with anything, and when you are going to the other country you can cut that other SIM and slap it in, it will find that new network in under 10 seconds.

Just go to www.ziphone.org & download the software. It will open it for you in less than 5 minutes.
