Hello, I am considering an iPhone for T-mobile and was hoping some knowledgeable people could quickly comment or point me in the right direction on a few thoughts/questions I have.* Take the plunge? Or wait? Similar to the other thread, only for T-Mobile. I am currently not considering waiting until the new one gets unlocked because it will likely take time be prohibitively expensive for at least another year. My question is, what ideas do you have about how the price for the older version(s) will change once the new version is announced/released? Though I am ready to buy one today, I will gladly wait a few months if the market becomes saturated with mint.near mint (or new) 3Gs. 2G or 3G? This is barely a question at this point. As I understand it, I can only get EDGE anyway, but I think the 3G may be worth it because the battery will work better as I do plan on using the phone for over a year (at least) and I'm more likely to find a 3G in mint condition. Do you need a data plan for the GPS to work? Internet connection I have read a few things about wifi working on a different frequency, but don't really understand it all. Will I have to change anything in my wireless home router for either model to work on wifi? If so, would I be out of luck if I try to connect at places like the office or library, where I can't change settings? Is it true that wifi works automatically at Starbucks? Finally, can you receive calls or messages while on wifi? This is important for deciding whether or not to sign up for a data plan. Unlocked? Jailbroken? Both? Neither? This is firstly a procurement question as there are (physical) stores I can go to get a second-hand &/or unlocked iPhone who claim a one-year warranty. If the prices are reasonable, would you recommend this over getting it online? My concern over the method of unlock leads me to the next question. As I understand it, there are different ways to unlock the phone: physical unlock or software unlock/jailbreak. Is this about right? For someone who isn't crazy over the apps (for now), is the Super SIM the best way to go? Is there something better? I would ideally like as little upkeep of the unlock as possible. Is there any reason to believe Apple (or other resellers) will continue to drop the price on no-contract iPhones in the run-up to the next version? If they drop it to $400 or below, only then would I consider buying it new and unlocking it myself. Is the Super SIM (if I understand it correctly) a way to keep the phone on warranty? Thanks! *Just some background that I thought I'd add here without further cluttering the top of the post. I have been considering this for a while, but now that I need a new iPod (I definitely want the Touch) and because my family just renewed our T-Mobile Family Plan (which I do not pay for ) a few weeks ago, I have never been this close to committing to the phone. What I am looking to do is spend about as much I would for new iPod Touch, only with the option of putting in my SIM and also using it to replace my crappy old phone.
