    So I've had At&t for a while. I have a Samsung Impression and we have a family plan of unlimited text and web.
    I FINALLY bought a Iphone but it's a 2g. Don't mind that. It's jailbroken; which i LOVE.
    Now, I know I'll have to pay like an extra 15$ a month or something to use internet on the iphone. But my question is...how do i get all this activated and stuff? Just put in my simcard and wait? or what? Also, how do I make sure I keep it Jailbroken while adding apps and such?
    Also...where can apps be found?
    Thanks guys. :D

    You could always arrange your plan and stuff through an ATT rep. Also, if you put your sim in the phone and make a call or two ATT will notice you're using an iphone, and text you about signing up for a data plan. If you do nothing, I believed you get enrolled automatically.

    Do you mean iPhone 3G (which was the 2nd gen) or just original iPhone (Edge only)?

    It's the 8gb Iphone 2g. Like the second one lol.
    Basically. What is the easiest way and best way to get it the most current jailbreak state, set up for the 15$ extra dataplan thing, and have fun?
    Edit: Easiest way to put this is. I have Itunes 10. An Iphone. And some downloaded apps (off piratebay) How do I activate my plan on the phone, and be at the most current cfw to put the apps on there (as well as how on that too.)

    Best way to go is to just put your AT&T sim card in the iPhone and start using it. AT&T will detect that it is an iPhone and automatically add the $19.99 data + 200 SMS plan for you.

    You can always call AT&T also once you put the sim in the phone. It takes just a few minutes but I would just start using the phone.

    Your best thing to do would be to call AT&T and have then change it over the phone. The data plan will still cost $19.99.

    I bet you selected the reset all settings option. Next time, just restore it in iTunes.

    Follow the steps on THIS page and it will get you going.

    Any. These are apps that weren't gotten off Itunes store though. Like Cod Zombies that I got from undisclosed location...;D.

    I can't help you with cracked apps. Against the forum rules.
