    Hello. I'm new to all this stuff so I have a couple questions. There is this family plan and my father wants to get it from T-mobile. It's $179.99 for unlimited minutes + unlimited talk + unlimited text + unlimited web. My dad wants the HTC HD2 and so did I but then I didn't want for us to have the same phone so we can tell which one is ours. So I decided to get the iPhone 3GS unlocked running on iOS 4.0. Now, one question is when the family plan says unlimited web, does it mean that I can go on the internet when I'm out of the house and how? (With no router near to catch Wi-Fi.) My next question is when I get my new SIM card and put it in my iPhone, can I go on the internet not worrying about the bill since I have unlimited web? My next question is what is the difference between unlimited data and unlimited web? Another question is do I have to go to a T-Mobile store to figure out what plan works with the iPhone? Will the $179.99 family plan even work with the iPhone? If the plan does work for my iPhone, how do I switch from Wi-Fi to T-Mobile's internet. What is the difference between EDGE and 3G? I'm very confused and I need some answers. Thanks for all your help.

    Here's a link to the T-Mobile plan I'm getting:

    Its under "Family Talk + Text + Web" and "Even More (2 Year Contract)"

    Yes, you adjust your APN settings to connect to edge

    Unlimited data = unlimited web

    No, because they will charge you the 30$/mo for the smartphone plan.

    Yes.

    The phone will do it automactically. 3G is faster than Edge but you cannot connect to tmobile's 3G because it uses a different frequency.
