    Correct! if someone sends you an mms, you get a text which says "you have an mms click here" you click the link with your finger and the browser pops up to show you the mms

    It's a great device, if you can get one cheaply enough go for it. It's the only phone I've stuck with (and believe me, I've tried hundreds)

    I am the same as you with phones. Always switching and changing. With a bit of tinkering you can get them to record video now, too... Decisions decisions :unsure: If you are serious about selling your 2g... could you PM me with a price? :unsure:

    You'd probably have to get the 2G model off eBay now. The current 3G model is all that's being sold by either Apple or the carriers anymore.

    As far as unlimited wifi is concerned, that's always the case. The iPhone will use any wifi network in range that it can connect to (if you've got the appropriate credentials to access the wifi network). If there's no wifi, it will use the cellular network for it's internet connection. With the AT&T rate plan here in the states, the cellular internet connectivity is covered under a single monthly data charge.

    The wifi is always free assuming there's a wifi network around that I can connect to.

    Hope this isn't too confusing. :questionmark:

    I'm not really awake yet. :mental:

    Tom :)macwave:... yes Virginia, it's still early here!)

    Pretty much as Tom described it over in the UK too.

    If you have an O2 iphone contract you get unlimited "over the air" data so if you're not in range of a wifi connection, you can still browse the web free. If you have another type of contract then it's whatever data tariff you've bought with that.

    A phone from the US would work if it was fully unlocked, otherwise it would be locked to at&t.

    O2 is the carrier for the iPhone in the UK. It appears that the data portion (wifi or cellular) is included in their monthly plans. See this page.

    As far as buying one in the US is concerned, I'm not sure. I would think it would as long as you had the SIM card for your local carrier. But then that starts to get complicated with what the carriers will or won't allow. Your best bet would probably be to check with O2 and see what they say. Anything I'd say would be speculation at best, especially when it comes to the plans in the UK.

    The 2g ones were 4gb or 8gb, this is 8gb (the 3g ones were 8 and 16)

    Now hang on about bt broadband, that's not cell accessible (unless you know something I dont which is entirely possible) so only useful for wifi whilst youre at home. If you want unlimited access when you're out and about, you need an unlimited gprs data plan which is what you get when you sign an o2 iphone contract.
