    Don't waste your money on a 3G, get a 1st gen iPhone off ebay. First, T-Mobile's 3G network is scarce. Second, it's on a band that the iPhone's radio doesn't cover so even if you have T-Mobile 3G in your area, the phone won't go past EDGE. Unless you have some specific reason to get a 3G, save some money.
