How long until the first unlocked iPhone appears

Apple just started selling the iPhone tonight, through their stores, and through their exclusive partner, AT&T / Cingular.

The real question on everyone’s mind is when the first un-locked iphone will appear. AT&T is using a GSM network but the iPhone doesn’t have a SIM card like most GSM phones and the iPhone has a SIM card like other GSM phones, but it’s still locked up. The real question how long will it be before someone hacks the iPhone to work on another GSM carrier, like T-mobile?

Obviously, the visual voicemail won’t work, but it would be sweet to be unshackled from AT&T.

Update 7/19:  People now have a working toolchain for building apps for the iPhone.  I can’t wait to see the cool hacks that follow.
