    Default new to iphone, need help please
    I'll post my phone info first:
    iphone 2g
    bundle: none?
    voice plan: pay as you go
    data plan: none?
    sms: ?
    time w/ tmobile: just signed on

    I bought a used 16gb 2g iphone (3.1.3) that was already jailbroken and unlocked yesterday. He even showed me that tmobile worked on it too. I went out, got my own prepaid sim card, put it in and so now have 10 minutes of time for the phone. I haven't touched any of spookyET's IPCC files because since I bought the phone in this condition I wasn't sure if it needed it.

    I went into the tmobile site and put my phone as a samsung but couldn't find a way to add the web2go feature. Reading further here, it seems like you need that flex pay instead. Is it possible if I contact tmobile CSR online to possible get web enabled? I don't use the phone portion too often and really don't want to pay $30 a month for that.

    Another question that goes a bit with the previous one, I see the "tmobile" on the top left of the phone, but I also see an "E" which from reading here I know that means Edge. Does that mean I have data? I'm confused.

    Any help and advice is greatly appreciated!

    If you have pre-paid you won't be able to get a data plan (you may want to research the iphonesidekick.cc proxy though). The cheapest you'll get to pay to have regular T-mobile unlimited data is a 29.99 voice plan and the $9.99 web2go plan.

    If you don't have a data plan you won't need the SpookyET bundles.

    Even if you don't have a data plan you'll get the E, but your cellular data will not work.

    Hi, I"m on Tmobile
    E = edge network, as 3g Tmobile is not compatible with the Iphone, at
    least at this time.
    I get lost in all this lingo, so I'll play dumb.
    I am on a "yearly" Tmobile plan, I pay $100 for 1010 min.
    I'm not much of a talker so I make calls short as possible
    I use the wi fi when ever I can, and also use skype
    I am not all that familiar with the 2g model
    but Iphones can do much more then just text, mms, talk.
    can surf the net, find directions, Ipod, voipover3g, if your on ATT
    voipover edge for Tmobile.. there is youtube, facebook
    do a google search for "must have apps" such as
    voipover3g, tons of cool useful apps, find pizza places, in store
    shopping with discounts. ok said enough,,,but check it all out
    do google searchs and enjoy you Iphone

    Hm yes but the OP wanted web which you dont have. You use wifi. Youre not on the Edge network if youre not using data.

    Cheapest Tmo plan including the unlimited web is 9.99 web2go and 29.99 Even More. There is a non-contract version which is Even More Plus in which web2go may be added to as well--the price differs slightly I cant remember what it is but its like 5 or 10 dollars more for yhe voice plan.

    Ditto. $10/month more for a stupid contract and a "subsidized" (overpriced) phone upgrade
