It will be locked to an American network and you will need to get it jailbroken to use it with a different sim card.

Jailbreaking?

There's an app for that.

If you bought an iphone you need a special type of help which involves padded rooms and regular doses of sedatives

@TS:
In all seriousness, TS, you'll need to prolly get a new sim card from a local company in your country.

you have to read up on firmware and basebands. you have to first jailbreak an iphone than unlock it after that to use the phone on another carrier.

now if i remember correctly when apple released the 3.1.3 firmware for the iphone, it updated the baseband and permanently locked it so the phone couldn't be unlocked to use with another carrier. but that was almost 9 months ago. i wouldnt doubt that someone figured a way around this since than. people are always jailbreaking and hacking the new versions of the firmware everytime apple thinks they have finally secured the iphone.
