    Hi,

    I finally got my iPhone today! :D Bad news is that it has the latest update so I can't use yellowsn0w.

    What are my turbo SIM (is that what they're called?) options and where can I get one? I'm currently a T-Mobile user, if that helps any.

    Thanks so much! I've been dying to get my hands on this phone... now I just have to wait so I can *actually* use it! :eek:

    None. No xSIM is 100% safe and work ready. Besides, these xSIM solutions are in a very grey legal standing in the US and a vast majority of the world due to the form of making your iPhone actually connect to a network.

    Congrats on your new iPhone. Well, i have a 3G version of it so, idk if it differs from yours. But, I got a Turbo Sim card unlocker on eBay for about $8. Now, depending on what T-Mobile Plan you have, the Sim card might get a little wonky with your iPhone. Like with mine, I already had a Tmobile account already so, i thought i could just pop in my unlocker with my Tmobile sim and it would work fine. Not the case. It did work for a while and the Sim card would drop the service every other minute. so, very unreliable. But, then I got one of those Prepaid Sim card kit where it's just the Sim card and I signed up for the Sidekick data plan on prepaid which gives you unlimited txt and data for $1 a day. And PRESTO! My iphone 3G got full and stable signal anywhere i went and i got unlimited txt and setting up data was a pain, but, i finally got it to work on my phone. Now, i have unlimited txt and data for my iPhone 3G on Tmobile. it's pretty sweet. But, the only downside is, calling kinda pricey. about .15 per minute. So, you have to sacrifice something. so, i don't mind. But overall, it's definitely worth it. Good Luck!! PM me if you have any specific questions. :]
