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 (www.iphone-vodafone.net.nz) to the usual vodafone APN (www.vodafone.net.nz). See this thread http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=76&TopicId=24033 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.
