I have a iPhone 3Gs that I got from Vodafone NZ and am traveling to UK/Europe on my OE and will be getting an international sim card. Do i need to Unlock and or Jailbrake my iPhone or is it already unlocked, I know the unlocking etc has been discussed on the forum and from what I have read it seems that they are factory unlocked but just want to be sure. Cheers.

It's already unlocked - you can whack any SIM from any carrier that has a network that supports the operating frequencies of the iPhone in it and it will work.

You will just need to change the settings or load a carrier file if you want things like data to work.
