If you have an iPhone and you live in Bolivia, this probably means that it is a jailbroken/unlocked one, since Apple has not made the iPhone available through any of the wireless carriers in Bolivia. Sad but true.
All our neighbors have the iPhone, we're the only ones that don't:
This doesn't mean that we don't see people with iPhone, actually I know about 10 people with iPhone, and some have payed hefty prices for their Apple precious.
People have had to go through different ticks and ask favors to relatives in the US or in Europe in order to get an iPhone, you can also buy them from people or small shops which bring them in small quantities and have them jailbroken/unlocked locally. But if you don't have a geek's heart it's really difficult to keep up with the upgrades. Although I know quite a few people who would be ready to buy one if it was offered by a local carrier.
Those in Bolivia who have the iPhone 3G (I've got a 2G myself, don't need an upgrade for now although the 3GS looks veeeery cool), don't use in general the 3G service since there is only one wireless carrier which provides this service, TIGO, and I've used a chip from them for a year and I was really upset with their service it was really bad. I returned to my VIVA (another local wireless carrier), although they only have GPRS.
Wifi hotspots are not easily found in Bolivia, as you can guess. But there are a few (many public places have them).
Below a shot of Apple's next countries to have the iphone, are we're still not there. C'mon carriers in Bolivia do you really believe there is NO market for the iphone in Bolivia? We need more technology than other countries in order to work ourselves out of this poverty hole.
