    I couldn't get the T-Zone hack to work, so I had to go with the T-Mobile Total Internet plan. Cost more but convenient since I can use the WiFi at Borders and Starbucks. I even was at a hotel for a seminar that was a T-Mobile Hotspot.

    Hope you get yours working...

    I used ziphone 2.5 to unlock and activate the iphone for my girlfriend asa b-day present, she is on t-mobile. I added t-zones to her account and used the hacks and she has everything working perfectly. I read in other posts that people could not get it working but I had no problems.

    Good Luck

    It shows every single text, sorry.
    I'd go with Total Internet and not risk the chance the T-Zone hack doesn't work. But up to you, 5.99 to 19.99 per month is a big difference. Get the T-Zones, try the hack, if it fails once or twice then switch to total internet (Just Call 611 from your phone. They have reps available to help you and set up the server address and whatnot.)

    Hope this helps.

    No need for the YouTube activation hack, I didn't need it. EDGE is really slow when using YouTube though so I wouldn't recommend it unless with WiFi.

    I phone & Verizon

    I have a treo. Would love an iphone. No go with Verizon so I understand. Also has anyone heard when iphone will add an infra red eye to their phone. I am a realtor and the treo with infra red will open my supra lockboxes. It is nice not having to carry two remote gismos. Any input will be appreciated.

    I used ziphone to unlock and activate the iphone. The youtube activation hack was in the installer app I think under tweaks or just look under all and you should see it

    Overall, you and anyone else with an iphone is better off with T-Mobile. I am paying $66 after tax for a plan that has a few more minutes, more text messaging, unlimited web use with tzones and all. Oh yeah, alot better reception too.

    Wait, if you didn't have T-Mobile, why would you switch to it to get an iPhone?

    You like the hassle of having to unlock and re-hack your phone anytime Apple updates the software?

    You can't use iTunes over AT&T edge either, it is a wi-fi only app.

    After you unlock it, just get T-Zones. All the settings will auto config.
