    If anyone who is having troubles unlocking their Iphone with a T-Mobile sim card, here is a great tip.

    After going through the full process of updating the firmware, jailbreaking and unlocking, I was able to make phone calles but unable to get online. I figured out that the only thing that was missing, was the apn settings needed to be configured.

    Here are the simple steps:

    1) Using wifi, go into safari and search google for "help.benm.at/usa.php"
    2) Click on the website and go down to Mobile Configs
    3) Click onto T-Mobile
    4) Click onto Install

    Bare in mind that you must already have a data service with T-Moble and you should now be able to go online without having to use wifi.

    Hope this helps

    30$ is the plan with higher speed for t-mobile's 3g, i have the iphone 3g and i have this plan and it works great, and its way faster the normal edge.

    i read that T-mobiles 3G doesnt work on the iPhone 3G because it uses a different signal? how did you get it to work?

    sky...one my sister has the behold and its a good fone but i think u should save the money from buyiing the behold and use it for buying the iphone. unless ur rich or something. use the extra money to buy cool acceseries for the iphone. oh its called the other phones data paln with unlimted txt. but after what the bikes dude said, i dont recomend it anymore. i am a person who perfers 3G. so ill keep reseacrhing.

    supra owner dude..lol...3 things, what is the plan called on there website and what is it under. also do i need to get the new 3G sm card from t-mobile. i still have the one with the black text. but ive seen the 3g ones with orange txt on it(my sis has it for her 3g behold. so in easy words, i think i am going to need the new sim card for the faster speeds on the more expensive plan.

    yes u are completely correct! t-mobiles 3gsm bands are different then the iphones 3gsm bands. so it wont show up as 3g on the iphone, it will have the E symbol but u will be using the t-mobiles 3g speeds which are preety impresive. also read my long previous post to figure out about the sim cards.
