    iphone 3g question ???

    Hi, I am in the UK, I am just about to buy an iphone 3g but have one question, I have a contract with o2, I took it out as it was a cheap monthly payment and got a nokia 5800, if I buy an iphone on pay as you go can I use my contract sim in it or does it have to be jailbroken and unlocked or just jailbroken, sorry if it's a stupid question but I can't seem to find the answer, also does this mean that I still wouldn't be able to update itunes? Thank you..

    Not sure about O2, but in the US, an iPhone 3G locked to AT&T will accept any AT&T SIM, doesn't matter if it's prepaid or postpaid or whatever.

    If you use your O2 sim in it, you will be able to use it on your PAYG iphone 3G without the need to jailbreak it. You only need to jailbreak it if you want to use the phone on other networks. If you have the Nokia 5800 with unlimited web bolt on, you will be able to use it on your iphone.

    So I could buy a O2 PAYG iphone and stick my O2 simplicty sim card in it?
