Belgian iPhone launch

Belgian iPhone 3G carrier Mobistar has confirmed it will sell the long-awaited device on July 11th, offering users a glimpse of its voice and data bundles, which seem to echo upsetting rates found in countries such as Canada, Mexico, and New Zealand, but with a slight upside. Despite offering plans ranging from 30 to 60 that contain a mere 200MB to 1GB of data, and three to nine hours of talk time, Mobistar is offering the 8GB handset itself for 525 (including VAT), devoid of any contract requirement on the user's part.

The plans seem to offer a joint connection between talk-time and SMS messages, however, stating that the plans come with three, six, or nine hours of voice, or 300/600/900 SMS messages.

    Will it be carrier-unlocked as well?

    carrier lock...

    It would have to be - carrier locking is illegal in Belgium.

    They might still require you to be a resident of Belgium, though, to buy one that way.
