Can I just insert existing T-Mobile SIM card into an unlocked/Jailbroken iPhone 2G?

    Yes, if it's unlocked it should work by just inserting your sim card

    Thank you, Nine9si.

    Aside from applications, will iTunes then allow me to sync music, videos, etc., or will it still ask to set up the iPhone?

    You can sync anything you would with a normal iPhone on AT&T.

    Success... I think :)

    SIM card worked, seemed to have phone service, but didn't recognize the data plan that's on the T-Mobile account, and contacts were missing (maybe this intentional?). Also, neither the iPhone or iTunes displayed the phone number. Do I need to do something special for that?
