Stanza doesn't support images. If that's important, it won't do.

Well it really does depends upon which iPhone you have.

If its the original, head over to iPhonehacks.com for more info.

The iPhone 3G does not, as far as I'm aware have a firmware unlock method, thought its been jailbroken.

The only option that you currently have to use another Network's SIM (as I believe that's what you probably want to do) is to get a product like SIMable or iSmartphone Which is basicly an adaptor which slips over the SIM card you want to use, and fools the iPhone into thinking it is an authorised SIM.

I've not personally tried it yet, but am waiting for my iSmartphone Device to arrive. I decided on getting it as it does not require any mods to the SIM itself, unlike the SIMable which requires you to punch a hole in it. Its also pretty cheap, around $15 on ebay, or £9 including delivery.

JKOnTheRun had a nice mention of it, and I'll suggest scrolling down the comments for more info.

Hey! Its better then paying rip off roaming charges

I'm pretty keen on it as I travel overseas quiet a bit, and it's uusually a ton cheaper to just buy a local SIM if you're in any one place for any length of time.

I also tend to carry a couple of extra Prepaid SIM"s which have better calling charges for specific calls, and it would be nice to be able to just swap out the SIM, as opposed to having to carry another phone as I normally do now.

As for the eBook, well Stanza and Files lite are pretty nice. I just wish there was an easier way to get files into stanza, as opposed to having to do it one by one. I'll like a way for it to actually just sync a specific folder on my computer.

With My usage, mainly email and Web surfing, and Media consumption, its working reasonably well, though I find the lack of Flash support to be a bit of a pain. Still, as I don't make that many calls, as I usually use Vonage and Skype I don't find the Phone app that bad.

I got my iSmartphone adaptor, and while it worked for a few hours, it stopped forking afterwords. The seller said it was probably faulty, and is sending me a replacement.

Just keep in mind that apparently the iTunes software seems to recognise something is wrong, as it will not mount the phone with the adaptor in it. Switching to Flight Mode before connecting seemed to solve this, but need to do a little more testing.
