    im planning to buy my girlfriend an unlocked iphone for christmas, and have a few questions.
    1. should i buy off of ebay? and risk getting a brick.
    2. or unlock it myself?

    is it easy to do and if i buy one off the shelf have they already been upgraded to 1.1.2? and do i need to have At&T service to even unlock or just the sim card( i dont want AT&T)
    i have looked around and have found conflicting stories about how to unlock, and which versions are unlockable, she has Tmobile if that makes a difference.

    if someone could help me that would be sweet!

    If you buy one from Apple or ATT right now,
    you will most likely get 1.1.2 with the new bootloader,
    which is not unlockable yet. They can be used for the ipod function,
    but to use it as a phone, you have to wait while the brilliant hackers do their thing.
    It's been a while now we've been waiting, so hopefully not too much longer,
    but since I'm not doing it, I really can't say if it'll be in time for christmas or not.
