    OK, so ive saved up $500 and am ready to go buy this phone. before I do i want to know if it can be jailbroken and unlocked. I've searched and found that iOS4 can be done, but i didnt see anywhere if the actual device iPhone 4 is compatible with these methods....

    Save another 150$ and go to Canada on the 30th and buy a full unlocked one. Never worry about unlock jailbreaks again!!

    Well unlock anyway. But I'm guessing a jailbreak will still be wanted

    So if I buy one from Canada, it will be unlocked forever?! Then all I have to do is worry about jailbreaking it correct?

    Sorry I have no idea what ur asking. They will make plenty full life time unlocks just not for us in the USA. Thank Jobs and AT&T.

    AT&T's probably paying them out the wah-hoo and Im pretty sure Apple and AT&T have a contract until 2012. But you never know with all these rumors floating around.

    If you have a friend or family in Canada you should be able to have them pick one up or have it shipped to them from Apple Store Canada (online) and then have them ship it to you. I think those are the only options other than going yourself.
    If I helped at all, hit thanks! ------------>

    iPhone 4, you will soon be mine.

    I have a funny feeling u won't be able to buy full unlocked i4's in person only via online. Apple is gonna do everything to stay inconvient to promote carrier sales not choice. Just my feelings tho.

    ...if you go to an Apple store in Canada they will hand you an iP4 without a contract and factory unlocked. So in person purchase is very likely. Same with UK factory unlocked phones. If youre ever in the UK go get em! Apple only restricts US from getting contract-free unlocked phones.

    so If I live in the states and buy this factory unlocked iPhone from the Apple Canada website will It be shipped to me here in the states?
    2010-07-28 02:15 AM

    Probably not - you will have to ship to a Canada store/address and they might require you to give a phone number from Canada

    The iPhone won't be in Mexico until September. No official word on whether it will be unlocked or not.

    To my knowledge, they won't ship international...no matter where you order from, so no shipping to the states. I have a friend in Canada so I will be ordering one online and having it shipped to them. They will then send it to me. I don't know if I will have to enter a phone number or anything, but if I do I'll just give theirs.
