Received my sim free 3G S this morning, i couldn't be happier! slipped in my orange sim card and it locked onto the network straight away.
All the menus were in italian but after a bit of playing i found the international settings and changed everything to english.
after a few minutes i could tell it was so much faster than my 1st Gen ipod touch. things load quicker and everything is a lot smoother.
geo-tagging and GPS works perfectly. i needed to look online for the orange MMS settings and now i can send and receive pictures. Setting ringtones can be tricky but there are guides online.
sound quality is ideal and syncing/registering wasn't an issue.
if you have the money and your thinking of getting one, its the best thing you can do!
