    Default Help!! How can I get my locked activated AT&T iPhone on tmobile pre paid?
    Ok so I have AT&T plan which I pay about 120 monthly for an iPhone...now I've done research and found that it's possible to use tmobile sidekck 1/day plan. However my research has told me that the steps are different for 3.0 then 2.2...so my exact question is what is the cheapest tmobile plan pay as you go plan for text,unlimted web, and minutes. And what is the step by step guide to do it with 3.0 ...also do I need to use unlockit.co.nz for apn setting changes. Thank you and please don't reply saying look for the anwser clearly I have I knew none of this before lol!

    I can't help you decide for cheapest plans...
    But I can help you set up your phone for it.

    - Upgrade to Firmware 3.0
    - Jailbreak it with redsn0w (download from web)
    - Unlock it with ultrasn0w (using cydia)

    And you are ready to go...
    Just so you know, there are reports of MMS not working with SideKick plan, so if you are an MMS fan, you might want to think about another plan.

    Also, you will only need to use unlockit.co.nz, if you do not see CELLULAR DATA NETWORK menu after you Jailbreak / Unlock it...

    There is also a way to activate the CELLULAR DATA NETWORK via SSH, it's a bit more complicated though.

    Ok thank you I should have already mentioned that I am jailbroken on 3.0 should I restore to 3.0 before ultrasnow? Also use cydia version or pc version of ultrasnow? And after I unlock do I need a certain sim card I'm assuming my AT&T sim won't work

    If you are already JB just install UltraSn0w and away you go.

    The minutes are at a rate of 15 cents a minute with the SK Prepaid.

    If you need more minutes than maybe 100 a month, you should get Flexpay.

    I've been using this method on my unlocked iPhone 3G for a couple weeks now, and just today, the Edge internet stopped working for me. What's strange is that I can check and send emails using the mail app, but any other app I've tried that uses the internet (Safari, Facebook, Cydia) fails. Does anyone know what might be going on? I wasn't using any of the carrier bundles.

    I'm having the same issues here in SF. I've on a Prepaid Sidekick plan and have been running the corresponding carrier bundle. All of a sudden today the internet is just not working, not even mail. What's going on...?

    Update us... LOL those SK plans, do they charge you a dollar a day no matter what, or if you use it... like the regular plans?

    And with the regular pre-paid, can you get internet, or mail access on it at all? Does anyone have this? thanks..
