The iPhone will work internationally with AT&T service without being unlocked. It will also cost a fortune. An unlocked iPhone will allow you to use other carriers’ sim cards. However, factory unlocked iPhones are only available online in the US and that’s only rarely. The vast majority of unlocked iPhones sold on sites like eBay have been hacked and the unlock is not permanent and they are ridiculously easy to re-lock. Right now, if you re-lock, there’s no way to unlock it again.

Factory unlocked iPhones are available in certain foreign countries. They are expensive but if you travel frequently, they are your best choice.

@EverywhereTrip do you know if AT&T has inexpensive options for data serv abroad, or is it pretty costly to tweet on iPhone internationally?
