Hii..im really considering getting and iphone over an ipod touch..but i just a had few a questions..

-Has anyone faced any major problems with there unlocked iphone?
-if i was to restore it, will it be unlocked? or will it lock?
-how is it when you call and receive calls, does the network work well?
-If i saved sim contacts from my previous phone, and put the sim into the iphone, will they appear in the contacts?

I really like the iphone much more then the touch, but the problem is that the warranty will not work if its unlocked, unlike the touch, which will have a 1 year warranty..but im willing to take this risk..

Thank You

Buying an unlocked iphone is a waste of money, they will blast it

yeah, but you have to eventually update your iphone... or you may not get signal to AT&T... they will definetly make it so you have to update no matter what

Heck, try it and let us know. I for one would like to know how it works abroad in "hacked" state. I personally would advise against buying an unlocked one and do it yourself so you know how to fix it. BTW: I'll be leaving mine stock.
