About the iPhone
The Apple iPhone is an internet connected multimedia smartphone with a flush multi-touch screen and a minimal hardware interface. Lacking a physical keyboard, a virtual keyboard is rendered on the touch screen. The iPhone's functions include those of a camera phone and portable media player (equivalent to the iPod) in addition to text messaging and visual voicemail.It also offers Internet services including e-mail, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity. The first generation phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second generation also adds UMTS with HSDPA.
The original iPhone came in 4gb, 8gb and 16gb models and supported GPRS and EDGE connectivity. GPS functionality was provided using Wifi and cellular tower triangulation, which is not as precise as "proper" GPS. The original iPhone came supplied in black (thanks Henry Ford aka Steve Jobs).
The iPhone 3G, supplied in either 8gb or 16gb configurations and also coming in an additional colour (white as well as black, although the white one is only available in the 16gb configuration), added, as the name suggests, 3g connectivity. In addition, proper GPS was added. Some cosmetic changes were made, most evidently the back was now plastic instead of the previous models metal.
Activation, unlocking and jaibreaking
Unlike other cell phones, the iPhone requires activation and will (out-of-the-box) only work with a specific provider in the US. In addition, only applications from the Apple App store can be used. Software and hardware modifications allow the iPhone to be activated, unlocked and jailbroken, allowing the use of any GSM carrier and third-party applications.
The process of unlocking allows your iPhone to use any GSM sim. Note the term "GSM", AKA, not verizon, sprint, alltel, nextel, etc. These carriers are CDMA or iDen, a different technology then the iPhone, they are never going to work.
Jailbreaking is the term we use to describe how we gain access to the root file system on the iPhone. Normally, we can only see a certain folder within this filesystem because of Apple's locking methods, called a chroot jail. This folder houses all the media stuff from iTunes, but not the juicy stuff, the iPhone's OS. Through several different methods which you needn't concern yourself with, we can "break" out of this little sandbox, allowing us to modify files and perform all these cool hacks.
Currently, hardware modifications allow both the 2G and 3G iPhone to be unlocked and jailbroken, however these cost money. Software modifications allow the 2G iPhone to be activated, unlocked and jailbroken, while currently the iPhone 3G can currently only be jailbroken now be activated, unlocked and jailbroken. Some countries only allow the sale of provider-unlocked iPhones and hence the 3G iPhone can be purchased (at a premium) in an unlocked state (see links on right for these).
