    Right now I have a brand new iPod Touch and a few-months-old Blackberry Pearl (with unlimited T-Mobile data plan). I'm wondering if I can trade in my Touch for an iPhone and use my current T-Mobile plan with it. Is it possible? If I can continue paying my current $75/Mo. bill and switch my phone from the Blackberry to the iPhone I will probably do it...I just want to make sure I can access the internet, send/receive email, etc. first.

    that and updating your iPhone at all would go over like a fart in church since you would have to hacktivate it.

    No its not possible because the iPhone works on AT&T, not T-Mobile. (If you wanna get hacktastic, thats a different story I just automatically assume people are much smarter than that :cool:)

    Why would you get rid of an iPod Touch & Blackberry for an iPhone? Thats not a step up.

    i just don't like having to carry around two uber cool items. i'd rather have just one. but i don't think i'll be getting an iphone. 8gb isn't enough...plus i don't want to worry about hacking it just to make calls.

    The cost for a Blackberry with AT&T...

    is more expensive than the iPhone. The Blackberry is $29.99 (is there music on the Blackberry?) additional per month v. the iPhone which is $20.00 additional per month. I'm speaking from experience, since I have two iPhones, one Blackberry and one Motorola KRZR on my current AT&T account. :cool:
