Want an almost unlocked iPhone 3G? Then nip over to France
So are you one of the gagging iPhoner’s that wish they could get hold of an unlocked Apple iPhone 3G handset or even a jailbroken iPhone 3G, and all for the right subsidised price as well? The answer is you have maybe two options…
First option is you wait for the developers to release the Pwnage Tool 2.0 and then set about hacking your iPhone 3G…Second option is you book a flight and nip over to France where you order a prepaid iPhone 3G handset. Well obviously the price won’t be that right, but you won’t be lumbered with a two year contract.
So if you’re thinking about opting for option 2 over in France the 8GB iPhone 3G will cost roughly $808.00 and the 16GB roughly $966.00. Sound good? One small catch, you’ll need a SIM from Orange France, which means it isn’t quite as unlocked as it sounds is it.
Thing is, Orange France is forced by French law to unlock any mobile handsets they sell, sounds like a good law to me, but then the prices shoot up.
