    Hi guys,

    I am planning to buy both an iPhone 3G and an iPhone 3GS. I am aware of factory unlocked iPhones which are an easy option but are very expensive. I am mainly interested in buying a subsidized iPhone (from any country) and unlocking it.

    That's where the problem starts, AT&T have enforced in-store activation (or they take your IMEI number to check if you have activated) which makes buying in the US not an option.

    So, my question is: what would be the best country to buy an iPhone 3G (and perhaps iPhone 3GS when an unlock is available) to unlock it? And I assume unlocks work for any iPhones (not only AT&T).

    Thanks a lot in advance!
