399 USD + taxes and unlocking and hacking is a piece of cake all you need is reading ability and a wifi network.

Unlocked ones are available in delhi for 23-26k depending where you buy from. make sure the unlocked ones show 8 GM and not 300 MB, if the last 2 steps are missed it will show only 300 MB and several unlockers are doing that ...

i unlocked 2 over the weekend for the first time and wow it was easy ...

MUST GET IPHONE ....

as for getting locked with the firmware upgrade you can

a unlock it again
b, when connecting to your PC ensure that you are either not connected to the net or itunes is blocked in your firewall and you wont get any updates

All that is fine but from what I have heard, you cannot purchase one from the Apple site with an Indian credit card. So we're stuck?

Yes. 25k is the price of the unlocked ones. Some IT engg are busy at. If they had to travel to US, then grab 3,4 iPhones from there. Bring home and hack it and sell for 25k. Cool 10k per phone.

Also, i guess the novelty factor on this phone is eroding fast. Already there are just too many sighting of iphone in my company and my friends company. But got to say, its one cool device. The interface just rocks.

Apple is finding ways to block stuff... Check this out

"Nov. 5/07 - Was enjoying the lull before the inevitable storm... as usual, don't upgrade to iTunes 7.5. Looks like Apple removed the private functions needed for jailbreak from the MobileDevice framework. Time to find another way in... "

You can't forward SMSes. You can't send SMSes to multiple people. All silly stuff like that.

Yes I know that. But there's a compromise as always in our life. May be they'll will sort these out in future.

It's not the best of the products but a pioneer nevertheless. Ooops, why do I say all these about Apple?

Not entirely true! I bought mine with greenbacks because I didn't have a credit card at the time.

Also, anyone can buy any number of iphones. There is no limitation of 2 sets.

Default Invention Of the Year.

The thing is hard to type on. It's too slow. It's too big. It doesn't have instant messaging. It's too expensive. (Or, no, wait, it's too cheap!) It doesn't support my work e-mail. It's locked to AT&T. Steve Jobs secretly hates puppies. Andóall together nowówe're sick of hearing about it! Yes, there's been a lot of hype written about the iPhone, and a lot of guff too. So much so that it seems weird to add more, after Danny Fanboy and Bobby McBlogger have had their day. But when that day is over, Apple's iPhone is still the best thing invented this year. Why? Five reasons: ...

Invention Of the Year: The iPhone - TIME


And another interesting bit - It is rumoured that M$ fired it's CIO for using an iPhone, secretly.

It's been postulated that Stuart may have been caught with an iPhone or a surreptitious Linux box hidden in a dark corner of his house, but such reports have not been confirmed at this time. - Microsoft fires its CIO for violation of company policies
