You can now legally unlock any Iphone to any network using this site or similar and Itunes

As long as you are willing to pay them 50 quid or more.

You need your IMEI number which you get by typing *#06# on the telephone keyboard not the qwerty keyboard.

Doing it this way maintains iphone updates present and future..

iOS 7 is definitely the most radical update I've seen on an iPhone. Still getting used to it but I'm having to change a lot on my phone to adapt to the new buttons and change in colour. Not explored any of the new features yet though.

Seems to be a drain on the battery though, which for an iPhone is bad enough even before that!

The annoying thing about iOS 7 is that when I create my playlist for when I go running I cannot add podcasts. Why, why must I use this stupid and useless podcast app?

I like the new slide up feature. As well as the new window switching system. I've got used to the new white keyboard too.

What I don't like is the cheap looking buttons. Nothing wrong with the old ones.

I've not tried iOS 7 on an older iPhone yet but will get it installed on the gf's iPhone 4 later to see how well it handles the change.

Just noticed an interesting feature. Pulled down the top slide and my phone has told me how far it is to my OH's. Obviously my phone is telling me something so jumped in a taxi over there now!
