    My friend just moved back to the states and had on iPhone in the UK with O2.

    I have not jailbreaken or unlocked my phone, so I don't know all of the facts.
    Is it possible for her to stick my sim card (AT&T) in her phone and it'll work...?
    Or (this is exactly what I'm assuming) does she have to unlock it?

    Also, she wants to get a plan with AT&T, but not a 2-year agreement. Since she already has the phone, she doesn't have to sign up for an agreement right?

    She is planning on paying someone $30 to unlock her phone.
    I am wondering if I should just have her download the software and do it herself.
    How hard, or should I say "dangerous", would it be for someone that isn't a "techy" to do this?
    Can she just download the software, and follow the instructions. Or is there more to it?

    Any help would be appreciated!
    Need to figure everything out before Thursday.

    I was searching and searching through the forums and couldn't find exactly what I"m looking for. Thats why I posted.
    She doesn't want her phone jailbreaken. Just unlocked.
    Can someone provide a link to the correct unlocking software?
    She has an iPhone 3G I beleive, most likely running the current OS.

    In order to unlock, you must jailbreak.

    If her baseband is 2.30, she won't be able to unlock it.
