I recently got a 4gb iPhone 2G and have it unlocked with tmobile with the 19.99 web/msg plan. I love this thing, but for some reason I am having some problems. First off, my wifi is not detecting anything (it did once while charging and stayed on for a while during the night but went away next time i tried).
The main problem right now though, I am not getting my texts or calls right away. If I press the home button there might be a missed call or text. If I go into the message app there might be some more that just pop up. It seems like I only get these things when I actually go into my phone.
Had no problems with my sony ericsson TM506.

Web i don't think works on the iPhone with T-Mobile (Maybe im wrong, i dont think the data plan does). As for your wifi issue, it's a common issue that I faced with my old iPhone 8GB. There's not really much I was able to cover at that time (Thus methods back with 1.1.4 and early 2.0 were ALOT different than they are now). For your calling issue, That's just a bit strange. Try a restore to 2.2.1 maybe, See what you get.iPhone 4 16GB Jailbroken/Unlocked for T-Mobile USA with all the bells and whistles.
If I helped solve your problem, Press "Thanks!" for me ^^

It's strange because it seems like the phone is retreiving my calls and texts from the network fine, but it is only showing them to me when my phone is not idle.

Data isn't the problem, especially on a 2G. Sounds like an issue with your iPhone

Well, no matter what, missed calls should NEVER show up unless the phone actually rings. As for the text thing, I noticed if you receive a text while respringing, the number badge will show on the icon, but you will not receive a popup.

to me, it sounds like a software problem. but i'm new to the iphone scene so i really dont know what to do.

Yeah, honestly I've never heard of that happening before. I know **** can go haywire if you corrupt your MobilePhone.app, but with you being "new on the scene" i doubt that you have tried that.
So let me get this straight--if your phone is locked when you get a call, the phone doesn't ring? But if unlocked, it does ring?

I had this same problem except my calls would not come through hardly at all. Go to settings\mail,contacts,calendars and where it says FETCH NEW DATA turn it OFF. Let me know if this helps.

One more thing that might help. Periodically (maybe 2x/yr) I call T-Mo customer and check/verify the # of rings before transfer to voicemail. They like to set it to 3 or 4. Max is 6. AND that their count!! My phone never rings their count (haha).
