Default iPhone 3g in the UAE

Is it unblocked? If I buy one here can I use it in Australia without restrictions?

Would you buy one?

My husband got his in Aus - paid 12 months contract with Optus - put my Optus sim card in it for 10 days, then it was unlocked. He uses it freely with his Etisalat sim card now. I think it worked out to be less than half the price he would have paid for it here (even with 12 month optus contract). May be worth getting one when you're home. He likes it because we use macs and it's calendars and everything sync, photos, itunes, all that mac stuff.
