    Default Questions about 3g Iphone and GoPhone sim.

    Im wanting to get an iphone and I want to know if this will work:

    1) Buy activated 3g Iphone off ebay.
    2) Buy at&t gophone and add 3g data plan.
    3) switch gophone sim with Iphone sim.


    Will this work? Also if im using the gophone service will I recieve 3g internet speeds? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Probably it will but are they offering any data with gophone? I think At&t killed unlimited MediaNet. I checked their website and the only option I see is the ripoff 1Mb for $4.99.

    I don't think it will work. Not only are iPhones locked, but they only work with a specific type of Sim card. At least that is the case with my Japanese Softbank iPhone. I have tried to use other Softbank sim cards to no avail (before I bought my Gevey Plus! that is). Other iPhone sims worked though. Just not other 3G phones.

    I bought an (USA) iphone 3G off the internet on ebay. Came with no SIM. I went into a local mom and pop cellphone store and bought a GoPhone (came with small phone and $25 SIM). Placed SIM into iphone and went online to AT&T web page. Entered all required fields and activated the PAYG SIM while it was sitting in the iphone. Works perfectly. I pay $39.99/mo for voice and I added the $20/mo unlimited MediaNet package. Everything works perfectly and I do indeed get unlimited 3G data (my bill simply says $0.00 for any data use). Only downside is the popup with balance after every call/SMS but otherwise is everything I had wanted. 3G iphone, unlimited data, no contract.
    Just heard today that the DevTeam have the software unlock for 3G ready for New Year delivery, which is great news.
    BTW, I have updated firmware multiple times from original shipping 2.0 to current 2.2 via PwnTool and (win) iTunes, keeping original baseband of 1.45.00. It happily activates in itunes with no issues.
    BTW, AT&T clearly knows I have an iphone on this SIM as I get Apple related SMS texts from them for important announcements, but they dont seem to care.

    Hope this all helps.
