Is that right?

But the iPhone has a major drawback: the cellphone network it uses. It only works with AT&T (formerly Cingular), won't come in models that use Verizon or Sprint and can't use the digital cards (called SIM cards) that would allow it to run on T-Mobile's network. So, the phone can be a poor choice unless you are in areas where AT&T's coverage is good. It does work overseas, but only via an AT&T roaming plan.

I can't say for sure. Steve Jobs mentioned a SIM slot during the introduction of the iPhone (although you really couldn't see it in the presentation...and they never showed a SIM tray or other means of swapping a SIM).

Since Walt used one for two weeks, I would think he would know if there was a SIM slot where Steve pointed. I hope there is one, but even if there is, I doubt Apple would let the phone be used anywhere but on AT&T per their agreement.
