Glad to be here. First time long time ;/. I just got a gift card for my birthday for a 16GB iPhone. I am using a BB Curve with TMobile now and am not in a contract. I would like to buy an iPhone and use it with TMobile.

My question is, when I go to Apple to pick up my new iPhone, can I unlock it before I even get an AT&T account? As in, pick it up at Apple, and act like I'm going to go down to AT&T to get an account, but then just unlock it prior to activating with AT&T and attempt to use it with my TMobile account?

Also, will mobileme push work with TMobile tzone hack?

Thanks, and hope I'm posting in the right section and not violating any stickies.
