OK, the prices for iPhones in France on the Orange network have just been published on iphone.orange.fr.
The subsidized iPhone is 399 Euros (US Dollars, Swiss Francs, British Pounds).
The subsidy requires a 12 or 24 month commitment to a service, the cheapest being 49 Euros a month (US Dollars, Swiss Francs, British Pounds) that includes 2 hours peak time and 2 hours off-peak time and "unlimited" GPRS.
Except that unlimited, according to the small-print, is actually 500Mo and excludes bluetooth tethering, VOIP, P2P and "Newsgroups". And minutes over the "forfait" cost 0.37 Euros, gulp. Gotta love these telcos!
Note that according to law, Orange will be required to give you unlock codes for free 6 months into your contract.

So on on May 29 2008, 6 months after the introduction in France, Apple will be endorsing SIM-free iPhones. Better late than never.

The "iPhone Elite" hackers have posted detailed instructions on how to downgrade any iPhone to 1.0.2 and re-flash the baseband firmware.
Highly recommended as it makes the 1.1.1 update a smooth experience. Unbricks too, apparently.

As reported just about everywhere, the Apple iPhone 1.1.1 update risks making your 1.0.2. hacked iPhone unusable.
So it's back to square one, sigh.
I'm following the "new" hacks (such as this one that claims a 1.1.1 unlock) and will report on any significant proven breakthroughs as they are released.
