First thing you will want to do is jailbreak the phone using QuickPwn or your software of choice. Somewhere in that process it should "activate" the phone for you.

Put the Tmobile Sim and Gevey into the phone and it should automatically put you on tmobile using your plan without issue. Next, sign up for Tzones...you'll need it. Then go to Settings, General, Network, Cellular Data network, and put in epc.tmobile.com

You may or may not have to reboot your phone at this point...it's varied for me on my and my wife's iphone. Either way, when you reboot you should have edge coverage and be good to go.

Hope that helps you out, I searched and read for a long long time to figure everything out, but now my iphone works perfectly on tmobile and my bill each month is cut in more than half from AT&T.

Call TMobile or do it from your online account.
