iPhone 3g & Tmobile/Orange - any issues?


Active Member
I've been offered a 3g iPhone which I'm told is around 8 months old and the seller thinks its on firmware 2.0 or 2.1.

Am I right in thinking it can be jailbroken and unlocked to work on T-mobile or Orange?

Also, are there any issues (once unlocked) with using the phone with either of these networks. eg. text and voicemail notifications - are these viewable directly on the phone (ie. don't have to go to a mailbox to view them etc..).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the link.

Couldn't see any info about text & voicemail notifications etc. Does anyone know if there are any issues around these areas?

Visual Voicemail does not work, but you should still be notified of a new voicemail.
