    So I'm thinking of getting the iphone 3G and using it on T-mobile with YESSIM (ATT sucks and I'm not paying $140 per month for the same plan and only $90 a month but with better service from T-mobile) and I'm wondering if anyone is using YESSIM with T-mobile (or any provider other than ATT). What's the longest any of you have been using it and how is it working out for you? Sorry if all this has been covered before (I searched and didnt come up wth too much info) I just dont want to waste my money on something that isnt gonna work.

    Also I forgot to ask if it needs to be jailbroken...because I dont want to risk losing the warranty on the phone. And if it does have to be jailbroken to use yessim are there any other alternatives that dont require messing with the software?

    These unlocking sim cards don't require any jailbreaking. I have been using the Gevey sim card, and it has worked awesomely since I got it, but the best thing is that you don't have to cut the sim card.

    I have been using it for about 3 weeks with no problems and I have been using it on T-Mobile with edge set up. That company has a one year warranty also on their sim cards.

    I am using GEVEY-3G for the last two months, you can get it for more or less than $15 on ebay.

    go ahead for it.

    You could technically but it is expensive. I would try to buy one off ebay or find one to buy for cheaper on craigslist. And the dev team is really close to a software unlock of the iphone 3g and soon all of these sim cards will be obsolete.
