    Hi all!

    I am moving to Spain this summer, and I will be there for a year. I currently have an iPhone 3G, and I don't want to have to buy another phone in Spain. I know that it's possible to unlock iPhones for overseas use, but how does that work?? Would/Can I use a prepaid SIM card after unlocking it? Would it maintain all of it's functionality?

    Sorry if this question has been asked before, but thanks in advance for your help!!

    Right now it depends on if you upgraded to 3.1.3 yet or not. If you are on 3.1.2 you should be able to jailbreak and unlock ( jalbreaking is required to unlock ) using a combination of blackra1n ( to jailbreak ) and blacksn0w ( to unlock ).

    Check out the jailbreak & unlock forum.

    If your on 3.1.3 then you can't jailbrake it, you can't unlock it and you can't use a pre paid sim from Spain.

    Even if you restored to 3.1.2, the baseband would still remain at 05.12.01, which is locked at the moment.

    The famous iPhone hacker "Geohot" claims to have a new jailbreak but he is not releasing it yet. I suspect it will be released in time for your trip. Don't panic.
