Would it be possible to obtain a sim card from Vodafone for a first gen phone to run on my current plan?

In other words, update my phone to 2.0, leave it locked but request a sim card from VF to operate the phone on my current plan?   I see it as akin to purchasing a phone outright (without a plan) and using it on whatever plan one desires?

Any thoughts?

You can use your plan on a 1stgen iphone

But you will still need to unlock it as the 1st gen iphones are locked to AT&T

You might also need to use one of the many techniques to edit the data APN, depending on what APN your current plan specifies. Vodafone's iPhone (3G) plans use a different APN ( to the usual vodafone APN ( See this thread for more info.

As the previous poster said.. you will still need to unlock it. This is trivial for the 2.0 firmware now that PwnageTool 2.0 is out.
