    If there did, why would anybody pay for 3G?

    I'm not fully sure how cellure network work but I'm pretty sure it works like this:

    You buy a SIM with a plan. And that plan is registered to your SIM card somehow by maybe a key or some sort of chip. The iPhone connects to the cell tower and the tower reads your plan and gives what you pay for...

    So I don't think so [​IMG]

    Well I would figure it could use the battery off your phone to make the 3G work. Sorry I'm just so desperate for 3G.

    Well, if there's open Wi-Fi you can use that for free...

    But I don't see a way to get 3G without paying for it, sorry.

    Unless it's free for that device (like the Kindle)

    Is there an iPhone app to give me a free house?

    How about a boat? I'd really like a boat.
