    Sorry i don't understand your question? Do you want to know whats a good phone to get with a new contract? so, basically you want to get a new contract, and use the sim with iphone and give the new phone to family/flog it on ebay?

    I would say good ones to get at the moment: Nokia n95 (black 8gb), Samsung Armani, Nokia 8600 luna, (Vertu). These are my favourites.

    Thumbs up

    lol i didnt understand your question either...Did you say your buying an iphone thru tmobile, will it work fine with your sim card?!

    Depending on what country your in, I dont really know about UK and Europe, here in the US t-mobile is currently not selling iphones. But if tmobile is offering the phone, then of course it would have to be unlocked for t-mobile users. About the internet, it should be already hooked up to work.

    THe only thing you might want to do is use a program to get installer on there. It is really worth having (games, themes, apps, etc).

    are you in the UK? if you are, get any phone you like t-mobile dont support edge in the uk only gprs, 3g and 3.5g so your iphone will only use gprs.

    You can get any phone, the sim will work with iphone (as long as you unlock it).

    Data: You have to decide whether you want a data plan, or whether you want pay-as you use. it really depends on how much you use.

    I don't know why your you tube doesn't work? Does it work when you use wifi? or does it not work all the time?

    In uk, you can only use o2 with youtube as all the other networks do not support EDGE. Otherwise you have to use wifi.

    Get the cheapest t-mobile phone, transfer the sim card to your unlocked iphone
    Subscribe to $5.99 EDGE add-on, apply hack as needed
    youtube and internet will work with EDGE but will be faster and better with wifi
