    It just works.
    Hey everyone, so I have a little interesting story for you. I just got back from vacation in Finland and while I was there, I went ahead and bought my friends iPhone 3G from him since he was looking to sign up with another Finnish carrier. He bought it from the Czech Republic back in September. I figured, ah what the hey, I'll take it home and try to unlock and ebay it for some extra cash or whatever. Anyways, here's where it's interesting. I get home and throw in my T Mobile sim card and it connects to T Mobile just fine. I was curious and borrowed my aunts at&t sim card and found the same results. He didn't jailbreak or unlock the device, he didn't even know what Cydia was until I described it to him. Is this just an odd case of unlock-a-cidis? In any event, I plan on keeping the iPhone now since no warranty-voiding process needs to be done to use this on T Mobile. I don't have much of a point to all this, just thought it was interesting is all.

    There are legally unlocked iPhones available even here in the States. Maybe they're sold that way in Europe?

    Well, from what I understood there are no factory unlocked iPhones in the US but I looked on Apple's site and all the iPhones sold in the CZ are unlocked. It's good to know!
