iPhone 3G unlocked

According to, the iPhone will be sold with or without a subscription in Switzerland.

That's good news. My guess is that Apple did not have a choice than to offer the iPhone unlocked in many countries as otherwise the carriers wouldn't take it.

So the wait is over soon.

The 3G iPhone is here

Apple at WWDC 2008 now announced the widely expected 3G version of the iPhone.
Now everyone says "hurray". Well not really. There are essential things still wrong.

- 3G support is nice but its lacking the Video Call feature.
- It's apparently still locked to operators so you can't travel to another country and put a prepaid SIM in (to be verified shortly).

At least they got the price right this time. And added GPS is nice too. So its a trade off. For me, locking myself to one operator is a no go. I'm operating with lots of SIM cards all the time so I can't use just one. It would ruin all my travel budgets.

Apple starts giving out SDK keys. After 3 months of waiting, finally there's movement.
I have not got mine yet though but I was allowed to pay for it.
