    Default [Compatability] T-Mobile user needs to switch to AT&T and need phone advice

    Hey all. I have a 1st Gen iphone unlocked on T-Mobile USA> Unfortunately, I moved to a new place and T-Mobile's signal constantly jumps all over the place. Its not constant and I frequently loose service. This isn't acceptable with my job so I need a more reliable network in my area. I am very sad to let T-Mobile go, as i have loved being a customer since 2003, love my iPhone, and their prices. My fiance is on AT&T and has no problems at all here so I figure I should switch and keep my unlocked iPhone.
    On to the real business. Since I will sign a new contract and be on an iPhone with EDGE, when I sign up I need to buy a phone that's plan will be compatible so when I use my iphone it works on the same service. I had heard last year that Blackberries used the correct EDGE plans for me to use an unlocked i[hone on. Is this still the case? Are there specific models I have to go with? Or can I get any phone and just add EDGE service to get the iphone going? Do I need to worry that AT&T will see that once I switch my SIM that I am on an iphone but not on iphone pricing plans? Any advice is greatly appreciated. I hope to buy my new service and phone in the next 24-48 hours. Obviously the phone that I select with AT&T will not be used, but sold most likely. I love the iphone. Thanks in advance.

    Hello! I would say if you really need to switch to att but get a simple plan and just get the sim card from them swap it out with your t mobile one and your good to go edge is crappy and att will charge you a lot to use it.


    from what ive gathered you should be fine and ive been doing this since the price drop of the og iphone

    if you want the best phone reception, you want Verizon, not ATT. Verizon has an iPhone clone called the DARE

    if you want to use iPhone with ATT, just port your phone number to ATT and buy a phone plan for it. You dont need to buy another phone, nor do you need a new phone number..

    Be aware the Edge plan costs $20 with ATT, not the 5.99 I pay Tmobile.

    Also be aware ATT costs $10 per month more than Tmobile for comparable minutes plan.

    So if you dont stay with Tmobile, and go to either ATT (and keep your iPhone) or Verizon (not iPhone compatible), expect to spend about $24 more per month...

    In my area, ATT has MUCH worse coverage than Verizon.
