The iPad isn't available yet. It'll be available in Apple Stores within 60 days. If you looked on apple's website at all you would know that there are 2 models, a Wifi model and a Wifi+3G model. The 3G model is for AT&T. So there may be something like a jailbreak a little after it's released but it definitely wont work on Verizon. iPhone jailbreaks usually come out about a week after a firmware update but this is something new and possibly harder to hack.

Everything on the internet should be read as though its a lie. Then take 5 secs and decide if it's still a lie. If it takes more then 5 seconds, move on anyways.

The iPad 3G is unlocked, so it should work on T Mobile. Verizon uses CDMA, so it wouldn't work.

I really hope the iphone will work with the accessory keyboard. My guess is that it will not. But one can hope.

Does T-Mobile have a true 3G network? If not, you may be limited to AT&T or a local carrier.
They have a true network, but it runs on different frequencies than AT&T's. I would assume this thing will fall back to EDGE if necessary, but haven't heard or read that for sure. So, as is the case with the iphone 3Gs, you'd be limited to EDGE on Tmobile. Plus they need to make one of these micro-sims for tmobile.

What is a true 3G network?

FYI, Tmo has a 3G network, its just different frequency than ATT's. The Ipad will NOT be able to run on Tmo's 3G, just EDGE. However, thats moot point since its not a cell phone and you can't just stick your Tmo sim card and off you go. Tmo as of right now does not support data for the Ipad, just ATT and it uses a new microsim card. So it won't make a difference whether or not it runs on Tmo.

plus it's very big and needs a lot more power to hack!

Steve (a really good friend of mine) told me that he thinks it will work, since the iPad (he kind of laughed when he told me the name) is just a big Touch.





Steve is my neighbor. Last name is not Jobs. He just knows things.

MicroSims are only used by AT&T at this time. T-Mobile does not have them. :(

See what Steve did there the other day? :D

The iPad keyboard is cool, but it boggles my mind they didn't design it so it folded up (especially the white part that props the iPad.) The BT Keyboard is a lot easier to carry around.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it works (the keyboard accessory for iPad). If it runs just a slightly different version of the same iPhone OS, it seems to me that a simple update in the iPhone's firmware would be all that's required for it to work. It's just a keyboard with a dock connector - the hardware is certainly compatible; the iPhone's OS just needs to know what to look for when it's plugged in.

Of course, whether or not Apple chooses to enable this in a firmware update for the iPhone is a totally different story. I can almost promise you that if they don't, it will be enabled via jailbreak in a New York minute. ;)

The problem is that t-mobile uses a frequency for their 3G network different from AT&T.

You can use a iPhone on T-mobile for voice and edge data, but not 3G data. (unless this has chanced recently)

And according to the iPad specs, the iPad uses the same frequencies as the iPhone. So I'm not sure it will work there either.

Don't know if Verison's 3G data network might be compatible (their voice network isn't, but maybe just the data network is?)

So the iPad may be unlocked, but in the US it still might be limited to AT&T anyway.

I can't think of a single reason why I would want to hook a keyboard up to my iPhone. The iPhone fits in my hands, I can type fast with my thumbs. It would take longer to doc it than to just type with my thumbs. I just don't see the benefit on this one.
