    I'm actually asking for info for my brother, as I already have a 3GS on AT&T. He's on T-Mobile and really wants an iPhone and keeps asking me questions about using it with T-Mobile. I have no clue what does and doesn't work so I told him I'd look into it.

    1 - He already has a contract, so when he gets the unlocked phone what does he have to do, just put his SIM card in and he's done, or does he have to add anything onto his plan on order for the phone/features to work? If so, what?

    2 - Is there anything an iPhone on T-Mobile CAN'T do that the AT&T ones can?I thought I read somewhere that T-Mobile doesn't have MMS, visual voicemail, or 3G. Not sure about VVM, but I know my brother can send MMS because he sends me pics all the time, and I know T-Mobile has 3G because his GF has the G1 that is on 3G all the time. So basically I'm wondering what you can, and can't do with an iPhone on AT&T (app store, VVM, MMS, 3G, tethering, etc)

    Thanks for any info

    There is a hack that fixes MMS. VVM and 3g cannot be used however.
