    Just wondering what kind apps are available and where can I get them from?
    How exactly does Cydia work?
    Is there an app that can let you text through edge, instead of using the carriers text plan?
    I saw someone streaming a live baseball game on the iphone. Is that available on Cydia?

    Cydia is like the appstore of the jailbreak world.. this is where you will find all the jailbreak apps you want!

    Cydia works using APT (apt-get), the same way popular linux distributions work when it comes to installing programs and getting updates

    You already text using your cell phone signal when you use your carrier, but if you mean text through your data plan (not individual messages) that is not my expertise, but i have seen a lot of people talk about a program called 'text free' which is in the appstore (no need for JB)

    I don't know about the baseball game.

    Do you have to be an AT&T customer to use the official app store?

    I haven't heard anything like this, so i would assume not. I'm fairly certain the app store is through apple only, so it will work with whatever carrier you're on.

    Yea this is true because you dont get billed for your apps through your AT&T bill
