    Anyone know about using an unlocked iPhone?

    I'm in a contract with Orange and have a W995 handset, but I want to buy an unlocked iphone, sell my handset, and use my SIM in the iPhone, will I still be able to purchase and use apps?

    yes as the apps are purchased through your iTunes account and therefore bare no relevance to the network lock on the phone

    Yes, just plug it in, but be careful that it isn't set to automatically download new software if its unlocked with something like yellowsnow. Otherwise you'll not be able to use it on Orange as they're locked back to the original carrier.
