    ok so im getting a 16GB iphone this week and i want to ask a few questions as a noob.. im going to be doing this on a macbook of mine..

    1.so when i open it from box plug to itunes do i have to activate it first or just run the ZiPhone unlock?

    2.what will i need to unlock it out of the box i dont want ATT as of now..whats the best method ?

    3.can i restore it back to normal and activate it with ATT acoount if i want to be ATT.. like if was just like out of box like new?

    4.does mess with the iphone do permanent damage?

    5.will i have to rely on wifi for youtube safari maps ect..if im on t-mobil sim card?

    6.what features work/not on t-mobile?

    7.will the camera support video or that has to be a hardware upgrade?

    8.should i wait for a new model 3G in stead? when is that coming anyways?

    9.can i use it like a ipod touch with out the sim card installed so i can only use wifi just like ipod touch ?

    Ok, I have to ask some noob questions about this too.
    I want the iphone but not AT and T. What providers can i use
    other than At and T. How do you set this up.
    Does the iphone have to be jailbroken out of the box before anything else.
    Im a noob to iphone and seems kinda hard to do.
    I want voice, internet and text messaging plan. Help a noob.
